About RobLawMax

At RobLawMax we specialise in recruitment for the Engineering, Manufacturing, Construction, Architecture and Design sectors. This enables us to have a greater understanding and level of empathy with both candidates and client companies during the recruitment process. Typically, our staff are industry experienced and qualified, enabling a close understanding of your market. 


The personal approach . . .
Although we have the latest technology available for search and selection processes, we have not lost our personal touch, and we do not take a 'one size fits all' approach to recruitment.

As a market leader . . .
We are acknowledged by clients, candidates and contemporaries as one of New Zealand’s leading specialist recruitment companies, and have a growing reputation within Australia. Our particular strengths are the construction, manufacturing and engineering sectors. 

Our values - we believe in:

  • An open approach
  • Teamwork
  • A people focus - it’s our business
  • Continual improvement of our processes/systems and people
  • Solving client problems in creative and innovative ways
  • Win/win strategic partnerships

Our reputation . . .
It takes time to build a good reputation - something we have been doing since 1985. We are proud of our great reputation - but no-one is perfect. We thrive on feedback and will always try to improve.

Corporate member of our industry association . . .
As members of the Recruitment Consulting Services Association (RCSA), we abide by its code of professional conduct and utilise its professional development programmes. The RCSA operates as a mediator in the event of any complaint or dispute and has disciplinary powers over its members.






We are members of the professional body for the UK Recruitment Industry the Recruitment & Employment Confederation (REC), and our UK team are members of the Institute of Recruitment Professionals (IRP). The Institute of Recruitment Professionals (IRP) is the representative body for individual recruiters and resourcing specialists. 

Our extensive candidate database . . .
We have comprehensive systems that provide quick and easy access to a wealth of talent across all engineering and technical disciplines and all levels throughout New Zealand, Australia and further overseas.

An effective contracting service . . .
We provide contract, freelance, and temporary staff to companies at competitive rates. We take responsibility for staff payment and the administration of all statutory requirements. The client only has to sign the timesheet and is presented with a single GST invoice every two weeks.

Legislative knowledge . . .
Through our involvement in the RCSA, REC and IRP (UK) we keep abreast of changes to Employment legislation, Health and Safety, Immigration requirements and the multitude of constraints on doing business today - which basically amount to good management practice.

Our fees . . . 

We have a realistic fee structure that is mid-range in the industry and reflects a sensible approach to recruitment.

A great shared risk agreement . . .
Our aim is to get it right every time, but it would be unrealistic to promise it. It takes goodwill and good communication between employer and employee to cement a permanent relationship. We stand by our guarantee commitment which is detailed with every placement.
