"I have worked with Emma over a number of years now, being both a candidate and more frequently asking for her support in recruiting for my various HR Teams. Emma has always taken care to understand the business, the role and a good culture fit for the roles being sourced which sets her apart from many other recruiters I have worked with. Emma has always been honest, given good guidance, builds strong relationships and always available at the end of the phone. I recommend her highly and will always have her on my support list."
Amanda Jones FCIPD, Head of HR, Keys Group
"Emma definitely isn’t your typical recruiter and you instantaneously know this when she doesn’t get the first CV to you in an hour. Her search and selection will be thorough and she will stick with the parameters you’ve laid out, however, she is never shy at showing you the wild card candidate you never knew you wanted. She remains my absolute preferred supplier when hiring any HR professionals and, I have, and always will strongly recommend her to many other businesses now and in the future."
Laura Latham, Group HR Director at Inspired Thinking Group (ITG)
"Emma was supportive throughout the recruitment process for my new role. We had regular check ins and Emma was always available for catch ups. Not only was her support great during my interview stage but also at offer acceptance stage also. I would not hesitate to work with Emma again."
Ross Murray, Head of Referrals Business Development at Linnaeus
"Dan is clear, open and transparent with people, this builds trust and confidence in him, and I have seen first-hand during visits to his workplace how he develops ‘followship’ in his team and how this translates to them giving extra discretionary effort to deliver the desired outcomes. Above all people trust him to get the right result. People respect him, and they like to work with him. Everyone who interacts with him is better for the experience, and this includes myself."
Nigel Wilkinson Chief Information Officer, GKN Automotive
"Like many I have worked with Recruitment Agencies for a number of years, both as a candidate and an employer. It’s fair to say that this isn’t the easiest or most enjoyable of experiences at times and it’s with this in mind that I do not hesitate to recommend Dan Hughes and the IT Team at Gleeson Recruitment. Dan and I met when I applied for a role that Gleeson had been commissioned to place and through my experience I can say that the team expertly strike the balance between acting in the best interest of their client but also seeking out, building a relationship with, and maintaining the interest of candidates."
Ben Dale, CTO, PeoplePlus UK
"GRG Executive Search has recently overseen a significant senior hire for my businesses. In the past I have been extremely sceptical about the value of using a recruitment firm but GRG’s utter professionalism and dedication has completely changed my view. Not only did they head hunt the perfect candidate for the role but refreshingly their involvement has continued post the candidate's acceptance of our offer. This has insured a smooth bedding in process, which has saved us both time and money."
Tim Young, CEO Netwatch Global Ltd
"What sets GRG apart is the investment of time to really understand our culture and people. As a result they have an excellent hit rate of candidates submitted who are then oﬀered a position."
Gordon Hurst, Chair, Darktrace
"Dealing with GRG has been an easy process from the outset due to their relaxed and professional manner. By taking the time to learn about our business, our company's culture and our future ambitions, they provided us with an impressive short list of candidates very well matched to the role. The successful candidate was not someone actively looking but they matched our requirements to someone they thought would be a good ﬁt."
Howard Marsh, UK Managing Director
"I have known and worked with the GRG Executive Search team for almost ten years and without exception they are the ﬁrst people I pick up the phone to when I have a recruitment need. The focus they place on relationships and understanding your business goes well beyond the normal ‘get your assignment, ﬁll it, move on’ mentality that so many other ﬁrms operate. Their ethos is about the long term, building conﬁdence and trust and delivering the goods time and time again so that you don’t need to use anyone else. I value that approach – I only ever need to make one call and I can be sure that things are being taken care of. They are an excellent team, always on hand and always willing to provide support and advice even when there is no beneﬁt to them, that’s what I respect and that’s why I enjoy working with them. I would not hesitate for one moment in recommending them, they genuinely are ‘best in class’."
