Having worked with Nick Green as a candidate and then very closely as a client, I can honestly say it’s always a pleasure to deal with him. I have moved on but hope that we can work together again in the future. Keep up the amazing work that you do Nick.
David’s advice, experience and knowledge were a great help and gave me confidence when I was still new to the market, and his calls to make sure everything was going okay were a nice touch. If I was considering a career change I would definitely call him first!
Paris found me my first graduate position and took care of everything for me. She rang before my start date to ensure I had all I needed, on my first day to wish me luck, and at the end of my first week. She’s a pleasure to work with and really cares.
David helped me get my first job within the Electronics Industry right after I graduated from university. He also helped me negotiate for my second job. In both instances he was proactive in providing feedback, immediately responded to queries and could easily comprehend my professional and career expectations.
Electronics Engineering Graduate
I can’t thank Paris enough for the support given to me. This was not only through the interview process, but also in the subsequent weeks of working at my new employer. I would not hesitate in recommending Paris to anybody seeking a new opportunity.
Senior Quality Engineer
It was my pleasure to work with Gemma. Her truly professional and sensitive approach made the difference. I can sincerely recommend her.
Senior Product Manager
Gemma helped me to secure my role when I decided it was time for a change. She was extremely helpful and professional and kept me up to date with progress, from the initial role discussion through to the interviews and final acceptance. I would highly recommend Gemma if you are looking for a new position.
Senior Mechanical Design Engineer
I can sincerely recommend Gemma for her knowledge and experience in recruitment and resource procurement. Her communication skills throughout the recruitment process were exemplary.
David was very professional and courteous in my dealings with him. He was very approachable and prompt with any queries I had. He helped me get a job in a field I had been out of for a while; I would definitely use David again to find a job.
I have worked with David for a number of years now and am impressed by his ability to take a requirement and really hit the mark in terms of candidates presented. I have successfully placed great people in organisations thanks to David's hard work and commitment. I have no hesitation in recommending David as a recruitment provider.
Having worked with G&H and dealing with Gemma for several years now, we are delighted to recommend Gemma. She has demonstrated her expertise in helping us to recruit for a variety of technical roles at two of our UK locations on many occasions. We trust her judgement, value her opinion and listen to her advice as a recruiting partner. We would always put every vacancy we have to Gemma at G&H to help us with. The quality of candidates received from Gemma often exceeds those sent form competitors; we feel that Gemma listens and understands our requirements for each individual role and only sends CVs of those that truly match. Gemma also has listened to us, and understands, that due to the nature of our work we are not always available by telephone, and therefore supports us via email and even out of hours where required. The care and service from Gemma at G&H has been faultless and we would continue to work with Gemma and G&H going forward.
Throughout my dealings with David I found he knew what he was talking about, was honest and gave out good information. He was easy to talk to passed on good information that helped me decide on my new position.
David’s considered and professional approach combined with his expertise makes him an excellent recruitment partner when recruiting for engineering and technical roles. I have worked with David for over two years and as an Interim HR Professional I have needed to rely on professional recruiters to deliver a consistent service with the ability to adapt and understand business needs quickly. Following recruitment drives in my recent roles, when evaluating recruiter performance based on candidates invited for interview, David has been the highest performer out of the top three technical recruiters. He has a deep understanding of technical recruitment and the environments and needs of the related industries. He has always provided me with quality candidates and been patient when specifications change. The candidates he sends me are always well briefed and provide quality feedback following the interviews. David is a pleasure to work with; he is personable and demonstrates a high level of integrity. I would recommend him without hesitation.
David has been an absolute pleasure to work with during my job hunt. He was incredibly supportive and gave good advice surrounding career options and in preparation for interviews. He regularly kept in contact and felt genuinely invested in me and my efforts in finding a suitable role in industry. Couldn't ask for better!
Excellent recruitment agent (Gemma). Took the time to get to know me and my requirements, and went on to find me a great job. 5 stars.
