After 12 years doing business together, and some difficult decisions made over the last few months, we are sorry to have to tell you that McKenzie Ellis will be ceasing business later this year.

New challenges

While we are a little bit sad about this end of an era, we are also excited about what the future holds for us, the team at McKenzie Ellis. The recruitment business has changed immensely since we started out in 2004, and we are also personally in a very different place to where we were when we started.

The time is right for a new challenge. Jackie will soon be starting in an exciting new role – to be announced soon, watch this space (!), and Jill will be managing the business during its winding down period, before taking on a new opportunity. Juanita is working on her own business venture, and Cam will continue in his 'proper' full time role without handling our IT/database queries on the side!

To all our loyal candidates and clients – thank you so very much for your support over the last 12 years. We have loved getting to know you and working with you and we hope that we have helped along the way.

What does this mean in the interim?

For clients, our current existing roles and placements will still be handled, monitored and seen through to conclusion by Jill, and all contracts will still be valid. Our guarantee provisions will still apply, as will your obligations in respect of the introduction period for any candidates we may have introduced to you prior to this communication. However we will not be taking on any new roles.

For candidates, those of you who are currently working on contract via McKenzie Ellis, your contracts will remain valid and we will continue to work with you. For those who are in the middle of the recruitment process for a specific role, we will also continue to work with you until the conclusion of that process. However we are not taking any new roles, nor interviewing any new candidates, and we won’t be marketing or looking for roles for our candidates.

From today, all contact is with Jill

I was genuinely impressed with McKenzie Ellis' efforts in placing me. I would like to give you first crack at trying to place me again.
