Gaylene has been nothing but the most amazing person to help me with my recruitment journey.  Her professionalism, compassion and intentionality always made me feel prepared and excited for every step of the process of placement. She always went above and beyond to ensure that the new role matched my needs perfectly.  Gaylene is the most talented consultant I’ve dealt with and a genuine pleasure to work with. I’ve had the pleasure of being placed successfully by Gaylene and would recommend her in a heartbeat!

I have dealt with 100’s of consultants over the years & not one of them come close to the type of service I’ve experienced with David. His level of professionalism is second to none & dealing with him has been a very pleasant & rewarding experience. What has stood out about David for me, was that he did not waste my time from the get-go. 

Keep up the great service!

Gaylene, for finding me and making a difference in my life; you are truly one of a kind. I would definitely recommend Gaylene as she is a very consistent and reliable recruiter. I started communicating with her some time last year and she was assisting me with getting a job I ended up not getting that job but Gaylene still continued communicating with me. She assisted me again with getting a job from that same company this year and we finally got it!!! A permanent job. Thank you so so much Gaylene for never giving up on me you are 1 of a kind.

Client

Working with David’s firm has been a pleasure. Even with competent staff, he takes the time to personally understand what our requirements are and perform regular check-ins. This is the type of top level service and genuine engagement that I can truly appreciate in an industry built on trusted relationships.

Gaylene has been absolutely amazing throughout the whole recruitment process! I have never met such a professional and dedicated recruitment consultant. I cannot thank you enough for your full support, transparency and for helping me start a new chapter of my professional career. Gaylene, you are brilliant at what you do. It is an absolute pleasure working with you. Any organisation would be lucky to have you as their consultant.

Candidate

Not just a talent specialist, but a super human and care taker!! Dean takes care of his people, ensures comfortability and keeps to his word. Not an ordinary recruiter who would just ghost you and never give feedback, but he is someone who cares and will always keep to his word. I was and still super impressed with his friendliness, professionalism and his talent spotting eye. We need more Dean Kruger’s in this world.

Candidate

I have never met and worked with such a professional and enthusiastic Talent Specialist. Dean has a very impressive charisma which makes him perfect for what he does. I got the feel that he understands that job placement is much more than successful resource placement but rather the fact that its a life changing event and that has led me to believe that Dean takes his time to better understand individuals in order to know where the candidate can have the best fit, whether it is in your career or desired work environment or be-it your work-life balance, Dean took his time to be certain that the candidate would have a positive feel after the candidate is placed and therefore candidates tend to be placed and settled in organisations for more than 12 months which is a very impressive turn over in my opinion as a candidate can start and finish a mid/large scale project within this time frame.

Great Individual!
Great Charisma!

Client

I just wanted to thank Dave and the S|M team for helping us build an incredible tech team here at RapidDeploy. The calibre of candidate, understanding of culture, communication and time management to delivery has been incredible. It’s hard to nd legitimate specialized recruiters however we trusted him with the entire process and they knocked it out the park. I’d partner with Swift Momentum any day at any business which is exactly what we did. If you’re looking to build a team I’d highly recommend Swift Momentum.

Darran Finn

Candidate

Gaylene is a consistent, helpful, and dependable recruiter, and I would strongly recommend her. I first communicated with her in February 2022, and she was supporting me in obtaining a job that had progressed to the level I’d aspired to since the beginning of my career. Thank you so much,

Client

Working with David has been a real pleasure – he is enthusiastic without being overbearing and has been very professional in his dealings with us.

Direct, open and helpful are the words I would use to describe Gaylene. I have had the pleasure of working with her and I must say the process was pleasant all the way. What really stood out for me was the rapid feedback and her willingness to advise you when uncertain about something. She remained very friendly and very professional throughout the process. I strongly recommend Gaylene.

Candidate

Gaylene has made my dream of being within Cyber a dream come true, when I had lost all hope. She instilled confidence within myself that I never thought I had. She values a persons capability and places it on a pastel. Indeed you the greatest Talent specialist I’ve ever encountered in my Tech career. In such she truly is more of a mentor than I could have ever hoped for.
