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.
Engineer, HV Energy Management - Bentley Motors
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.
