January Win-Win Winner Announced!


A couple of months ago we launched our Win-Win referral competition, which offered our candidates the chance to win one of six fantastic prize packages just by referring a friend for a job through Beyond Recruitment. 

We are delighted to announce this month’s winner is Carmelle Lafredez! 

The Referral

Carmelle, a Senior Test Analyst with over 13 years of experience in IT, emigrated to New Zealand from the Philippines in early 2013. She referred Sudhakara Thupakula to us, who is also a Test Analyst. He was interviewed a week later by one of our clients and offered the next day, and has been working there ever since.

The Prize

Carmelle came into our office to receive her prize from Beyond Recruitment's Managing Consultant Jo Allen.

Our Wellington General Manager, Ben Pearson, was also on-hand to formalise the prize giving and wish Carmelle all the best.

Carmelle chose the flights and travel package as her prize so that she can visit home. It has been three years since she has been able to go back to the Philippines to see her Mum and three siblings, but now she’s able to travel back and surprise her mum on her birthday. Naturally, Carmelle was delighted to win. “I was unable to contain my happiness, tears of joy were flowing!” she said, “Mum’s in for a surprise!”

Jo said it was wonderful to give Carmelle her prize. “It was so heart-warming to be a part of something this special, Carmelle is the sweetest person and is so deserving.”

Congratulations to Carmelle! There are still four more great prize packages available, with the next winner due to be drawn next month. For your chance to win (and to help a friend of course!) follow the link below and enter your details and the details of the person you are referring.
