- Chairman. GA Petfoodpartners
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."
- Director, Greystone Consulting
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.
- IT Service Delivery manager. TVS.
As a hiring manager getting quality IT candidates, with the right experience and skills is essential, and GK Recruitment make sure they totally understand the role requirement from the very start. I’ve worked with GK Recruitment for over 10 years and find their commitment to filling a vacancy outstanding, they continue to deliver for me. In any recruitment campaign, I know that a CV received from GK Recruitment means it has been through the right level of pre-validation, in line with the person and role criteria being sought, and the more personal service they provide is one of the reasons I continue to enjoy a successful relationship with them
- Head of Operations Support at Hallis Hudson
Gary helped me to recruit for a technical role and it couldn't have gone any smoother. He took the time to find out the type of person that would be a good fit in the team and put forward several suitable candidates. The role was filled quickly and I couldn't be happier with the new team member. I'd highly recommend Gary & GK Recruitment to anyone wanting to fill an IT role.
- Global HR Manager – Turtle Wax Ltd
We hadn’t recruited for an IT role for a few years so were keen to find a partner that could give us a ‘no-nonsense’ overview of the candidate market in the North West and quickly identify the most appropriate methods and timeframe for our search. Earlan provided all of this in a very engaging and affable way and we had a way forward agreed in no time, including a candidate brief that ticked all of our boxes but would also be sure to attract the top talent we were looking for. Earlan was brilliant at keeping us updated at every stage of the process and provided a short list of appropriate candidates within two weeks. Having conducted the first stage interviews, we both talked with a candour that enabled us to be even clearer on what was most important for us (we were asking for a lot!) and, having prioritized those elements, we have found a really strong candidate that will undoubtedly be an asset to our business. This was a challenging search for Earlan but his professional approach mixed with his ‘down-to-earth’ style meant we got the success we all craved, even in a candidate-lead market!
