“Chris and I first crossed paths about ten years ago and have worked together on an “ad hoc” basis since then.
Having been a Regional & National Manager of Financial Planners in the Banking industry for twenty odd years, I have seen recruiting consultants come and go, along with their commitments . Chris however has created a niche market and works that market in a very professional manner. Most of the Planners I appointed from Chris’s referrals are still in those positions or moved up to more senior ones.
Chris is a very down to earth guy, whose approach to finding good Planners, is one of “rolling up his sleeves and getting dirty” until he finds the right person. The lack of turnover of Planners appointed from his referrals is testament of the work that he does. Always a pleasure to work with “
~ Dan O’Dea, Regional & National Manager Banking Industry (since retired)
..."Having been involved in the Financial Services sector for over 20 years I have dealt with a range of recruitment consultants who have claimed to be 'specialists' in the sector. I first met Chris Oldrey some years ago initially as a potential job candidate looking to advance my career, but over the years I have gone back to Chris on numerous occasions to assist me in recruiting candidates for various positions I sought to fill within financial services.
The thing that always stood out to me with regard to Chris was the fact that he actually cares about the people he is dealing with. He takes the time to get to know people, which makes the process of placing the right people in front of the right opportunities so much easier - and ultimately more successful. Chris is indeed a specialist in the Financial Services sector."...~ Jeff Rodgers - NSW Marketing Manager, FEA Limited
"I have found Chris to be a person of integrity and honesty in all my dealings with him over the past 3 years. He has given me excellent advice; he is highly professional, innovative and committed to achieving a satisfactory outcome for his clients. He is decisive and diligent and I do not hesitate to recommend his services to my friends and associates. He is also a witty conversationalist and his personal enthusiasm and positive outlook is contagious." ~ Vivienne Murray, Financial Planning Consultant, Sydney
"A few years ago, it was with some apprehension that I called yet another recruitment consultant. I am always a little concerned about what they may propose.
However Chris Oldrey of FSR is a highly experienced consultant who genuinely cares about his candidates. In his very down to earth manner, Chris helps you work out what is achievable and has the industry connections to get you into that interview.
Chris helped me get my last job after listening to my needs and aspirations and I'm very happy. I have found a place where I can develop my long term career." ~M.P. Financial Planner Sydney.
