Kyle, Kelly, and their team at Lacuna were fantastic to work with. They flawlessly managed the job of hiring a new COO for a publicly listed oil and gas company on a tight timeline. We were given a shortlist of highly qualified candidates and supported through the interview and selection process. I've worked with many recruiters over the years, but can testify that this was the smoothest and most organized process I've seen. A job very well done to the team!
I engaged Lacuna search for a Head of Business Development appointment. I was impressed by their strong network and knowledge of the mining industry alongside their search methodology and tenacity in sourcing the best candidates. Their ability to identify and understand the competencies required for the position and how they went about their assessment to ensure a favourable fit with our culture and strategy was best in class. Their dedication and commitment to the task resulted in a short list of quality applicants and ultimately an appointment of a high calibre candidate who is still with the organisation today and has successfully progressed to a GM role within the leadership team. Lacuna’s approach to identifying and engaging high-quality candidates was second to none. If you value leaving “no stone unturned” in your personnel sourcing solution, collaboration and results, I cannot recommend Lacuna Search highly enough.
I have known Kyle and Kelly for a number of years and throughout that time they have always been professional, genuine and demonstrate extensive knowledge of the oil & gas industry. Their strong networking skills and corporate contacts is clearly a strong enabler in securing viable and successful opportunities for job seekers. The Lacuna Search teams ability to open doors, work with integrity and confidentiality whilst maintaining a personal touch made all discussions pleasant and effective and helped to build a trusting relationship. I have no doubt in recommending Lacuna Search to other contacts of mine in the industry should the opportunity arise to engage with a professional search firm.
I worked with Kyle when he approached me about a role with my current company. I found him to be very thorough and knowledgeable in his approach with me. He certainly was looking for the best possible candidate for the client but also wanted to ensure that once I showed interest in the role it was the right fit for my career moving forward. He went the extra mile for me which instilled trust that he actually did care about the right fit for me and the company. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Kyle and Kelly at Lacuna Search if you are looking to find the right person for the job.
Whether you’re recruiting or looking for the next opportunity, I’d thoroughly recommend getting in contact with Kelly. Given a recent challenge of recruiting a large subsurface team for a special project, she was the first person I went to. Her network across Australia and New Zealand is one of the best, while her work ethic, friendly considerate approach and people insights made working with her both a pleasure and success.
Kyle has consistently sourced, vetted and put forward high calibre candidates leading to placement of a number of mid to long term engineering and managerial positions within our Australian operations. Kyle's approach is genuine, informal, professional and he is tuned into our business needs & constraints which ensures he understands our resource requirements and is thus well positioned to offer flexible solutions.
Kelly’s network in Australia and New Zealand oil and gas is unrivalled. Due to the network she maintains across the entire spectrum of oil and gas companies from majors through to small cap and even private players, she was able to find opportunities for me that other recruiters simply can’t. I’ve also had great experience dealing with Kelly when looking to put together a subsurface team and she was able to find the exact type of candidates that I was looking for to suit our needs. I highly recommend Kelly when you are seeking new opportunities or looking for strong candidates to suit your needs for roles.
Kyle is without doubt a trustworthy and hardworking person, who goes the extra mile to ensure he is well informed about the requirements of the position, and the candidates being put forward, to ensure suitability for both parties. His knowledge of the industry, companies he represents, and vast network of contacts, along with his personality and ability to open doors and deliver on finding quality candidates, makes him the standout go to person for your recruitment needs.
Kelly is a truly enthusiastic and dedicated industry professional. She is passionate about her role as a recruiter of personnel in the oil and gas industry and through her hard work and tenacity, has now established herself as one of the foremost and successful recruiters in this region. I have always been impressed with her broad network, her intimate knowledge of the oil and gas business and how highly recommended she has become in a relatively short period of time. Even more impressive however, is the genuine interest she maintains with all her clients and placed personnel.
I have had the pleasure of engaging Kelly to screen and present candidates for several key geoscience positions. What separates her from competitors is her passion, energy and willingness to spend time understanding the client’s requirements, values, ways of working and effectively screening candidates against these criteria. I commend Kelly as a first point of contact when considering a career change or indeed when seeking strong candidates for vacancies within respective organisations.
