IT Recruitment Candidate Testimonials
- Software Developer
I came to Gary at GK Recruitment in a bid to secure my first contract as a software developer contractor. Prior to this, I was actively looking for the right opportunity for around a year, and had no luck in sealing the deal. Working with Gary, I was able to secure my first contract within two weeks - from getting in touch with him, to being offered the role by the client. The contract I was offered was more than ideal; great team, great rate, and the project I was assigned to helped me develop myself and my career even further. I'm no longer working with this client as I've moved away now, however, I truly had the best working environment a contractor could ask for, and to be told by the client that I'd be welcome back anytime really shows the kind of clients GK Recruitment get you in touch with. If things work out differently for me and I return back to my home town, I'd go back to this client in a heartbeat, and for that I'll always keep in touch with Gary. Thank-you GK Recruitment - the only way is up when working with you.

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.

- C# Software Developer
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!
- placed as a Service Desk Team Leader
I have had the pleasure of knowing Gary Keay of GK recruitment for over 10 years now, I first came across Gary and the recruitment services he could offer when managing an IT service desk for a large IT healthcare solutions organisation, I used to find working with recruitment firms difficult due to often receiving CV’s on mass that weren’t often relevant and certainly didn’t meet my expectations for suitable candidates, working with GK recruitment changed this very quickly. Gary seems to have a natural ability to understand my requirements of a role and transform this into a number of suitable candidates that are both job and interview ready. I have lost count of how many suitable candidates Gary has now placed for me and he will always be my default recruitment provider as and when my recruitment needs arise. Gary has also recently placed myself within a role, I required a change of position a few months ago and after reviewing the usual recruitment websites I felt uninspired and decided to call Gary, after listening to my hopes and aims he immediately made a suggestion of a role he was aware of and within a short space of time I was successfully recruited by a very successful worldwide organisation, the whole process was flawless to say the least. As I am sure you can tell by the commentary above, I would have no hesitation in recommending GK recruitment to anyone with recruitment needs as they are by far the most efficient and trustworthy recruitment firm I have had the pleasure of working with.
- IT Systems Administrator
I was contacted by Earlan when I was looking for jobs. He was so friendly and helpful, and outlined all the options that were suited to me. Earlan was instrumental in getting me the best Job by being very honest and open with me, which I really appreciated. Throughout the process; he kept me in the loop, and always kept me informed of what’s going on; which was really important! Earlan called me before and after my interview to check on how I felt about the company and the interview process as a whole. He was very genuine and down to earth, and you could tell he was motivated by delivering the best outcome for me rather than treating me like another stat. Even after I managed to secure the Job, he called me from time to time to make sure I was comfortable in the choice I’ve made and always offered his time whenever I needed. This is what you call going the extra mile for your customers. A great experience and I can’t recommend him enough for the work and effort he has done for me.

Earlan has been extremely helpful throughout every step of the process towards me finding a new role. He was very polite, well-mannered and always kept me up to date with progress and tips. Furthermore it was obvious that Earlan comes from a tech background as he knew what my skills are and where they would apply best. He was able to secure me an interview in no time and with his advice and support I secured the position. He helped make the whole process very simple and straight forward. Would highly recommend Earlan to anyone looking for a new position.
