Sylvia Keet - Director,  Keet Consulting - 2012

"Richard has been engaged as a vocational contractor with Keet Consulting from 1/2/11 to the present time - July 2012. During this period Richard has been engaged to work with clients on the the ACC Work Ready Contract.  

Richard has been required to develop vocational pathways for clients who are in the process of returning to work after a work place injury. Richard's wealth of experience in working in vocational services has been clearly evident in the manner that he has conducted himself as a contractor.

He is skilled in developing empathy and rapport with clients to gain their confidence and his networking ability with employers has resulted in him sourcing an ever increasing number of work trials and job opportunities for  clients, which is not an easy task in today's economic climate.

I have been impressed by Richard's level of commitment and persitence in working with his client base and I would recommend him to anyone who is looking to utilise the skills of an experienced consultant in the areas of career counselling, rehabitiation and recruitment."
