I recommend G&H to anyone in the automotive/motorsport sector. Nick understands this industry and takes time to match candidates’ skills and experience to company requirements. Throughout my most recent placement Nick provided an efficient, personal and professional service a cut above other recruiters I've dealt with.

Simon was instrumental in helping me gain a placement at Infiniti-Red Bull Racing. He is naturally approachable and professional and working with him greatly increased my chances of success. He continues to check in even after his main task has been completed. I would recommend anybody work with him.

Nick Green supported me in my job application, providing the necessary information and guidance so that I could understand what the company were looking for in their initial assessments. He is supportive, professional and a great recruiter.
I can highly recommend Nick, and Gerrell & Hard, due to his professionalism, diligence, and the high level of respect he shows for candidates in a recruitment process. I was a candidate in a process that Nick was running, and although it was particularly elongated, Nick always kept me informed of the status of the process, responded to my emails and voicemails immediately and made me feel that I was more than just a commodity who would be dropped if a fee wasn't to be earned from me. Nick invests far more into a search process, than simply running a word search against his current database in order to find the best fit of candidates for his clients. If more recruitment firms operated the way Nick does, the recruitment experience for both employers and candidates would be a much more positive experience.
Senior Manager - Head of Business & Operations, F1
Gerrell & Hard were instrumental in the success of the 2014 Infiniti Performance Engineering Academy. Having worked with Infiniti’s parent organisation, they were a natural choice for the project and came highly recommended.
Due to timings this year it was of paramount importance that we have a partner that could manage a large amount of applicants in a highly organised, efficient and professional manner. Furthermore we wanted a partner to approach the academy – the first of its kind for Infiniti and Infiniti Red Bull Racing – with a fresh and proactive attitude. Nick and Simon worked hand in hand with us to develop a functional and highly credible hiring process that delivered twelve final candidates and ultimately, three outstanding employees. Their experience and personable approach to this project has set an exceptionally high benchmark and I look forward to working with them again in the near future.

Paul approached me via LinkedIn with a role that he was recruiting for. After a quick chat I felt he really understood my abilities and had matched them perfectly with his client and the role he was recruiting for. The whole process of changing jobs was a breeze with great communication throughout. Since starting my new job I have had various chats with Paul, enquiring as to how I’m getting on, it’s a really nice personal touch and shows he values his clients and cares for their wellbeing. Should I need to contact a recruiter again in the future Paul will be top of the list.
