Helped us to meet demand & deadlines!
Teo & Murray McIntosh helped us during a very busy period.
At that time we required experienced electricians to assist us with cutting cables, assembling complex multi-core cables, soldering, and panel wiring. Teo helped us to meet demand & deadlines by introducing us to qualified individuals in the area who were able to jump on board with the availability and skillsets we required.

First hand response from their clients!
I find Teo is proactive in searching suitable position whenever I approach him. Teo is quick on getting first hand response from their clients straight after an interview. I would highly recommend him as key recruiter for those who looking for change or further progression.

Teo is absolutely outstanding in attention to detail and never giving up on the values all recruitment specialists should aspire to be like.
I must say that over the past 40yrs of working at some of this countries biggest and most prestigious projects (and industry) I have in all of those years had many agencies working to get me the right position and if that position didn’t work out they ran for the hills!!
A unique situation to put someone in so trust has to be defining, but now to the agency recruitment specialist Teo De La Cruz, after being let down and leaving a position early even though it was supposed to be long term, Teo kept the pressure on and said he would do his best. 3-4 months later I am now working for that same company in a better position! Teo is absolutely outstanding in attention to detail and never giving up on the values all recruitment specialists should aspire to be like.
Teo is a credit to the profession and I can’t thank him enough for giving me the opportunities he has promised and come through with.

We do a bulk of our business through Teo due to the quality of the candidates and the speed of service!
We currently have 10+ Murray McIntosh resources working across my team. Teo has been the recruiter for all of them. We have found the standard of applicants to be high, clearly the effort dedicated to candidate vetting by Teo prior to submission has saved time at the interview stage with an offer rate of around 2 from 3. Teo is very proactive in offering CVs and managing them through the online portals to get them in front of me for review, he is also quick to act when making offers and securing start dates. He has been supportive on the occasion a candidate wasn’t performing and provided sound guidance on the way forward. Compared to other recruiting partners, we do a bulk of our business through Teo due to the quality of the candidates and the speed of service.
