Next Level Personnel

At Next Level Personnel we forge genuine partnerships with organisations and individuals to help them grow together. We have a passion for seeking out exceptional talent and providing solutions that drive success.

Next Level Personnel grew out of an understanding of what businesses are looking for. Both Nick and Harry have extensive experience building and managing high-performing teams, through which, they’ve developed an insight into how to understand a business’ needs and culture to be able to match them with the most suitable candidates to help drive growth and success. The next step for us was a logical one driven by our passions and commitments outside of work. When considering what Next Level Personnel could do to not only help grow organisations but also make a difference to the environment that we live in, we started researching how we could offset our carbon footprint and in turn, help the organisations that we work with do the same. We have since partnered with Carbon Positive Australia to pioneer the way in various industries how we can together be more carbon-conscious for a brighter future.

This is just the beginning, If you’re interested in partnering with us, supporting our work, or joining our team, let us know!

Grow With Us

We are reducing our carbon footprint by supporting tree planting and conservation: Support tree planting initiatives or participate in reforestation projects. Planting trees helps sequester carbon dioxide and restore ecosystems.

What Our Customers Say


We posted an ad for a Service Advisor at Paradise Mazda and could not find a suitable applicant when we were contacted by Harry from NLP.

From the start Harry was great to deal with and has an excellent understanding of how a dealership works. Within a day he had forwarded Resumes for prospective candidates, one of which now works on our team and has fitted in extremely well. Everything was up front with no hidden costs and Harry stayed in touch during the process to ensure we were happy, nothing seemed to hard. The fact they can help with staff for any role in a dealership is fantastic and reassuring. We will certainly be in touch with NLP in the future when in the need for new team members.

Definitely recommend NLP for all you Dealership staffing requirements.

Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value

I have worked with Nick Woods for a a period of time. He is without a doubt the “go to” guy for all your recruitment needs.

I have given Nick the unenviable task of finding quality staff for numerous positions that amongst all the obvious qualities that new employees must possess- must also be able to slot in seamlessly with the current team that has now won both Metro and National Retailer of the Year three years in a row.

In an industry where it is no secret that there is a significant skills and quality front end shortage, Nick has risen to the challenge every time and provided me with handpicked candidates of an exceptional quality – each and every time. To the extent that the last time I used Nick, every single short-listed candidate was provided by Next Level Personnel.

I have dealt with numerous recruitment agencies during my career, but none have been as transparent, personable, honest, reliable and ethical as Nick.

I have full confidence in his ability and know that when I need to recruit a staff member, not only is Nick the first person I call, but I know it is one less headache I have to worry about due to the proven outcomes.

Thank you, Nick. It truly is an absolute pleasure wring this review about you, your business, and what you stand for.

Keep it up

A huge thank you to Nick from NLP. Nick was extremely helpful every step of the way. His engagement throughout the whole process was impressive.

I would highly recommend Nick from Next Level Personnel.

My dealings with Nick and the team at NLP are always homogeneous. NLP provide my business with quality and quantity candidates when needed. Nick provides a streamline process that makes it easier not only from a business perspective, although a candidates perspective too. Thank you.

Nick and the team at NLP have always provided quality candidates and delivered with speed and efficiency. They’ve been the perfect partner to provide people solutions throughout my dealerships.

I have come to know Nick Woods, MD of NLP over the past 18months through the recruitment services he has provided Suttons Motors. We have always received excellent service, high quality candidates and quick results. I can highly recommend Nick and NLP to assist with recruiting good quality staff.

I have worked with Nick at the team at NLP for several years now. Always a pleasure to deal with – very proactive and professional. Don’t bother looking anywhere else for your recruitment needs – these guys have you covered!

Nick was fantastic to deal with and went above and beyond to help secure a General Manager position with additional considerations around my Visa and Sponsorship, which he assisted in negotiating directly with my employer. He was professional, efficient and found exactly what I was looking for in terms of culture and fit for my skill-set. Thank you for all the hard work and for checking in to make sure I was content over the last two months as I settled into my new role! I wouldn’t hesitate to contact Nick for any needs moving forward – a pleasure to work with.
