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
I can sincerely recommend Gemma for her knowledge and experience in recruitment and resource procurement. Her communication skills throughout the recruitment process were exemplary.

I would highly recommend Gemma if you are looking for a new position.

Simon is the best recruiter I've ever met, really! He offered me a higher position than I already had and we finished the process together to success. I was impressed by Simon’s perfect timing, constant care, dependability and his pushing the hiring company to finish the process as soon as possible. If you want to move your career to the next step I will highly recommend Simon Davey.
Senior Engineer, Crash CAE
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
I first worked with Paul when I came across a role he was advertising which had caught my eye. I thought I’d send off a CV to see how it goes. Within minutes he was on the phone chatting through my experience and learning what I wanted out of the move. It was very clear early on that he understood my situation, and he was very confident about putting me forward for the role. Only a couple of hours later he had secured me an interview for the next day, and within 24 hours I had an offer. I could not have asked for more from Paul; right from our initial phone call through to making sure I was settled in the role, I felt a lot more confident in the whole process knowing I had Paul working with me.
Principal Engineer - Emissions Test
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.
Gemma was very helpful during my recruitment: open, honest and informative. She listened to my questions, concerns and expectations and then delivered. I recommend Gemma's services.
Senior Product Manager
It is my pleasure to recommend Paul as the go to recruiter for both employers and anyone looking to find new employment. Finding that perfect job or candidate can seem to be an insurmountable task, but Paul made the whole process feel like a breeze. After receiving my CV and a phone conversation with me, Paul efficiently matched my skill set and aspirations with the ideal job. Subsequently he dealt with the recruitment process with complete professionalism and continuously gave relevant updates and feedback as we progressed. Paul's work ethic is outstanding as I can honestly say that I felt he had both my and the prospective employer’s best interest at heart. The feedback, advice and guidance he gave in his friendly manner was always helpful, accurate and realistic. Paul is an all-round great guy to work with and I unreservedly recommend him for any employment matters.
Prototype Build Technician, Electric Vehicle
Paul is personable, reliable and honest. He takes time to understand what you are looking for in a role and uses his knowledge and network to find you one. His industry experience means he can identify opportunities not always visible through normal recruitment channels. I recommend Paul and Gerrell & Hard without hesitation.
Engagement Manager - TATA Technologies
I have worked with Dave since joining Sonardyne in August 2019. Upon joining the company I was given a list of our preferred agency suppliers and Dave was highlighted as the BEST!
I immediately build up a relationship with him and found Dave was the only agency supplier sending through quality candidates that actually matched what I and the manager was asking for. He sends through good quality CV's and obtains answers if I need clarification even on his day off! He is the only one who has my direct number so I now who is ringing :) We have build up a good working relationship and have some banter together and I really enjoy working with him.
I also like the fact that he takes on any feedback if a candidate has been successful as many agency's then dispute or argue with you. I have recommended him to others who have bene made redundant in the past and who were looking for a good recruitment agency

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!
I wholeheartedly recommend Gemma Feist for her dedication and attention in ensuring I had the information I needed to apply for my latest role. She and G&H made the experience move quickly, showed genuine interest in my requirements and regularly followed up. I’m happy to recommend the team.
Senior Project Engineer, Body Closures - Emerald Automotive
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.

Jonathan and Nick helped me find my current role at Aston Martin. They are dedicated and understand the industry and I appreciated their support when I transitioned into my new role, which made the experience a lot less stressful. Excellent recruiters and a personalised service. Highly recommended.
Engineering Coordinator - Aston Martin Lagonda
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.

Thank you for helping me get the job I deserve through your excellent communication and understanding of the automotive industry.
Vehicle Engineering Manager - Aston Martin Lagonda

Head of Technical Operations, Mulliner - Bentley Motors Ltd
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.
Simon was a great support during my job transition. I had been a long-term employee and as such I had a fear of leaving. Simon was incredibly reassuring and professional, and provided me with priceless hints and tips to help me succeed. All I can do is extend my thanks to him; he is incredibly friendly and understanding and easy to talk to. I will be sure to keep in contact with him in case I need to search for a job again in the future.
Senior Safety Systems Engineer
David was my recruiting consultant while I was looking for a new job to push my career a step forward. He was very helpful and professional during the whole process, he provided all the assistance that I needed in a timely manner and he managed to get the best deal for me and for my new company. I am so glad that I had the opportunity to work with him. Thanks a lot David for all your efforts.
I can highly recommend Jonathan and all his colleagues at Gerrell & Hard. They are the only recruitment company I use, having previously dealt with both Nick and Joel and gaining my previous job through them 10 years ago. This time around it was a pleasure to deal with Jonathan who was extremely supportive and helpful during the whole process. A big thank you once again for aiding me along my professional career journey!
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
Simon has been absolutely fantastic from all points of view in helping me through each step of an overseas job transition. I highly recommend him. Thanks so much.
Powertrain Subsystems Design Manager - Nissan Motor Corporation
Simon contacted me to recommend a position that fits my skill set perfectly; he has been amazing throughout the period of transition into the new role (during the covid-19 outbreak to add more challenge!) I would highly recommend him whilst seeking your new role as he will be on hand to help during what has no doubt been a difficult time to switch roles.
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.
Project Manager, Infiniti Performance Engineering Academy
We have now used Paul’s services during the recruitment for two recent positions. In both cases he has listened to the requirements defined for the role and identified candidates that closely matched the criteria defined in each case. It is refreshing to work with a consultant that carries out accurate screening to match candidates to our needs; this saves us time and ensures we get the right person for the position.
We have been extremely happy with the support & services provided by Paul, a candidate that recently joined us via Paul is testament to this.
Engineering Manager, Future Technology
Gemma was instrumental in finding employment for me at LEVC. From the first phone call, it was clear I was dealing with a very professional individual that had a very good knowledge of the Automotive business and a good relationship with my employer. Again, through the interview, job offer and first few weeks of my new role Gemma has kept me fully up to date during my application. On a personal level she checked that everything was running smoothly and that the job is going well too. Needless to say I'd recommend her to anybody in the Automotive sector seeking a new opportunity.
I have been recruited by Gemma for my current job, and throughout the whole process she supported me heavily. I can only recommend her as a recruiter- she went above and beyond to accommodate me.
Gemma helped me to secure a permanent position at Lotus, she was extremely helpful and kept me up to date with the progress from initial discussion and also after my acceptance. I can sincerely recommend Gemma for her professional experience in recruitment.

Gemma did a fantastic job of finding me a position when the project I was working on came to an abrupt halt. She is great at communicating and ensuring I’m aware of any developments or changes in my current role. I would definitely recommend her to others.
CAS Alias Modeller
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.
It was a great experience dealing with Paris throughout the entire recruitment process. She was very helpful, professional and accommodating which made me completely feel at ease. She arranged all interviews promptly, clearly outlined what was expected at each stage of the process and the key skills needed to be a successful applicant. If I had any questions or needed assistance I knew she was only a call or email away. Even now, after starting my position Paris has stayed in contact to make sure I am happy in my new role. I would not think twice about recommending working with Paris to find a suitable position within the Automotive industry.
Paris is the most helpful and responsible consultant I ever meet. She helped me through all the interviews and offered me the support or suggestions whenever I needed. At the end of 2019, I got the job which I have a lot of passion for. Even after I got the job, she still offered a lot of help and support. If anyone asks me about which consultant they should go for, I definitely will recommend Paris, because when you are looking for the job, you need a kind and responsible person to help you find the opportunities.
Graduate Project Manager
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.
I highly recommend Paris and Gerrell & Hard to work with. I found securing my new position went very smoothly and she managed the process very well. I was always prepared and given as much information as possible in order for me to succesfully be offered my new role. As she promptly helped me to find a role which suits me and supports my personal progression I can say without doubt she is an ambassador for the profession and someone that prides herself on both candidate and client satisfaction.

Senior Product Manager
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!
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.
Nick Green contacted me during my quest for new career opportunities in the automotive industry. What impressed me from the first moment was that the position he proposed felt like it was tailored for my skills and interests. The company was very reputable and he was able to provide some very useful and accurate details about the position and their hiring process. He has a very broad knowledge on various engineering disciplines and was able to guide me through the interview preparation process very efficiently. He made sure that the communication between the hiring manager and me was immediate and clear, and never hesitated to ask for more information on my behalf. I honestly can't thank Nick enough for contacting me regarding this fascinating role and for being there every step of the way. I value our time working together greatly, and would recommend his guidance to anyone looking for a personalized recruitment process.
With regards to organising my Visualisation contract Lotus Cars, Gemma worked fantastically to organise my interview and contract and I found her to be extremely helpful and friendly to deal with. She is very courteous and always on hand if I require any assistance, and with prompt responses and a professional manner she continues to aid me through my current placement.
Paul helped to place me in my current role at Williams and it went smoother than I had expected. My previous experiences with recruiters was one filled with pressure (as if you were a business deal they couldn't wait to close), lack of follow ups and lack of transparency. But with Paul I had a completely refreshing experience and I always felt he was on my side the whole time. He is very professional, honest and well experienced.
Control Systems Engineer
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.
Gemma is the best recruitment consultant I have dealt with. Hardworking, communicative and always there to support, she’s a credit to the profession.
I have no hesitation in recomending Gemma. I have had a fantastic experience and would gladly recommend Gemma to anyone looking for a new opportunity
David gave me by far the best recruitment process of any I have been through. He contacted me about a role that was coming up but not yet posted and he quickly got to understand who I was and what I was looking for which happened to match really well with the opportunity. The process with David was very well structured and most important, timely. I was never left more than 2 hours without feedback from an interview or a pair of ears to listen to concerns and feedback. David helped me make the right choice between two offers that I had. This made me feel really comfortable and enabled me to be as transparent as possible throughout which is sometimes very difficult to do. Job hunting isn't usually a nice task but I really enjoyed working with David to secure my latest position - thank you!
Having dealt with many recruiters, David showed exceptional talent and experience at all levels which makes him stand out from the crowd. I found him knowledgeable, articulate and pleasant to deal with. I dealt with David for a job role he found me suitable for; and he handled my recruitment process in a very professional way with outstanding communication skills. David is an asset in recruitment and I do highly recommend him.
Dave is a professional and proactive talent hunter who understands the need of the client and candidate which enables him to get a suitable match. It has been a pleasure dealing with you. Couldn’t recommend highly enough.
Software Controls Engineer
David was highly professional throughout my dealings with him and his colleague. He provided accurate and detailed information in a timely manner and was thoroughly transparent with all information. I found David to be diligent and a pleasure to deal with, and I would highly recommend his services to recruiters and candidates alike.
Fleet Sales Manager
Simon is one of the best recruiters I have worked with. He knows his clients very well. I have been in contact with Simon for over 3 years and throughout the time, he is extremely professional and friendly. He always keeps in touch regularly which I think is very important for his type of role. Simon also fully understands the my skills and the suitability for a role. So much so that sometimes when I have asked him about a job I've seen he explains the details and says it's not the best role for myself. (Which I agreed). Simon does pay a lot of attention to his clients and finally, he has helped me move onto such an ideal role in the new year I am so thankful. He truly is a great recruiter and he sets a benchmark of how it should be done. For him individuals mean something and not just a number on a spread sheet. Thanks Simon and I hope to continue our relationship for years to come.
