  • Earlan's understanding of your requirements and his tireless approach ensures the recruitment process is effortless and ultimately lead to a successfully offer being made. I’m particularly happy to recommend Earlan. No one else has come close to Earlan in terms of professionalism. He is always available to help. He will be my first point of contact for any recruitment needs in the future when I’m looking for my next role. I couldn't recommend him any more highly.

  • Having just relocated from South Africa to the North West and I was having difficulty cracking the job market until I met Gary. As a recruiter he maintained a highly professional demeanour and was always very friendly, and found me the perfect job instantly! Gary was quick to understand the kind of role I was looking for, recognising my strengths and putting me forward for exactly the right job. He was always there to help throughout the process and followed up with me throughout the year. Thank You!

  • I wanted to find a local recruitment company with whom I could work on a permanent basis, rather than constantly being bombarded by others. I wanted someone with local contacts, of local people, as they are much more settled and more permanent in their adopted roles. We have found that by sticking with Gary, we trust each other, and he knows our needs, and can convey our values to prospective candidates. Gary, has been able to offer good reliable software programming applicants that are fed up with the drive into Manchester, a happy working environment that he can honestly and truthfully recommend. So it has worked very well for us both parties."

  • Greystone Consulting Limited is small company with a big heart. We have some large customers mainly based in the North West of England. We cultivate long term partnerships. When we add to our small team finding the right candidate is vital. We considered several recruitment firms before settling on GK Recruitment. We quickly discovered that they have a similar ethos to us in terms of delivering a personal service. Rather than simply match key words from a CV they really go that extra mile to find the right person, and that’s like gold dust to a company like ours.
