What our clients say

We have had a long and illustrious partnership with Tim and the team at CrewSELECT. Over the years, they have been instrumental in helping our business through various stages of growth by supplying skilled labour on both short and long term arrangements, even when we have provided them with very short time frames.

So far there hasn’t been a situation we have handed them where they haven’t delivered.


General Manager
Engineering & Mineral Processing

Our business requires workers from several areas. Electricians including hazardous area and switchboard builders, along with mechanical fitters and boilermakers. We also request trades assistants and labourers to support qualified tradespeople. We find the service provided is top-notch and the employees are of an excellent standard in all market conditions.

I feel confident in recommending the services of CrewSELECT for your labour hire services in the future.


Manufacturing Manager
Oil & Gas

For our business to run efficiently and effectively, we require high-quality labour within very short time frames. Our work involves mostly maintenance and repairs and we also perform testing and commissioning within the high voltage sector. 

CrewSELECT has been instrumental in providing us with the labour we need with excellent turnover responses. We would recommend them for any labour requirements and will continue to utilise their expertise.
