"Jill Nelson, the principal recruiter and co-founder of Brooks & Nelson, is simply the best recruiter in the mining business today. Her wealth of contacts with people and companies is matched by her keen ability to understand what client’s need in a position and how to find just the right candidate. Brooks & Nelson’s experience and approach are particularly ideal for the client that wants to deliberately develop a strong positive corporate culture. Evidence for this approach is in the numerous clients and employees that continue to come back to Brooks & Nelson time after time for career advice and repeat business."

"The key to understanding a person's capability is to have walked in his/her shoes. Brooks & Nelson is staffed with experience mining people ranging from project managers to human resources. With seasoned executives on their board, they also benefit from an extensive global network at all levels of the industry. This provides Brooks & Nelson with a competitive advantage in locating and vetting the best candidates."
Dulci Jensen has long supported the mining industry. Brooks & Nelson asked Dulci to work with the company upon our formation, not only because of her “can-do” attitude, but because she had her BSc in Computer Science from the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology, and her knowledge of media services were just what was needed to help with the company’s launch. She navigated the building of the website and its content and further helped with presentations and advice. She also helped to establish the processes and procedures of Brooks & Nelson. Now “retired” to lovely Summit County, Colorado, Dulci continues to provide insight as a member of the Board of Advisors to Brooks & Nelson.
"I was honored to be asked to serve as a board member for Brooks & Nelson. I have so much respect for the Brooks & Nelson team, they truly deliver the best service and support in the mineral resources recruitment industry. I’ve known Jill for decades. She is a dedicated, consummate professional that is excellent at her of job of creating the best possible match for both the candidate and the client. Brooks & Nelson are a cut above the competition because of their experience, sincerity and personal attention."
