"Eight years ago Lucy from GRB contacted me with a potential role, she was confident then that she'd found me my ideal role....8 years on and I'm still with the same company loving my job so she couldn't have got it more right.

"I worked with Charlotte from GRB and cannot recommend her enough. She worked with me during the process of applying for my current role and was extremely helpful from the beginning of the hiring process until the end, giving me detailed prep on my cv, helping me perfect my interview skills, and providing useful tips for my assesment day. She was helpful even after I had secured my position, regularly checking in to answer any questions and being a great liaison between myself and my new employer."

Name: Agnes
Degree:  Mathematics
University: Imperial College
New Job Title: Junior Financial Modeller/ Forecasting Analyst

"A couple of years ago, GRB contacted me and led me to land an offer for a graduate level role at Accenture based in London despite the economic downturn. With offers at hand that time (PhD scholarship vs joining the industry), Aleks at GRB listened to me and help formulate my game plan instead of pushing to close the deal. I found GRB's people are genuine and highly professional. I am happy to recommend GRB for Maths/ Engineering/ IT graduates as they are good at the matching process."

"GRB placed me back in 2011. They were incredibly professional with their approach and gave so much more than other Recruitment companies. Their seamless preparation for each interview stage ensured that I was successful which even included multiple calls late at night. I love the job that I am in and couldn't imagine leaving. This wouldn't be possible without the GRB team. Many thanks!"

New Job Title: Technology Leadership Graduate Programme

"I was first contacted by GRB in January 2012 about a potential graduate role with a FTSE 100 organisation. From the outset, the communication and support I received from both Jenny and Charlotte was outstanding and helped greatly throughout the entire application process and subsequently securing the role. Two years later and I have now completed my graduate scheme and am now very happy in a full-time role at the same company! I would strongly recommend GRB!"

Name: Rory
Degree:  Economics
University: University of Leeds
New Job Title: Graduate Assistant Management Accountant

"I just wanted to say a massive thank you to your agency, and to personally recommend several of your consultants.
 
I had been hunting for a job for ages (a year and a half now) until finally I got a job. I'm so excited, it's right up there as goes my dream job (I get to cost pizza! Pizza!). Anyway, I wouldn't be in this position were it not for you agency, thank you so much. During my job search I have dealt with a number of your consultants. Everyone comes across as being very friendly and helpful. Jenny was great as was Freddie.
 
Two of your consultants have been particularly fantastic though. Charlotte and Jenny. Both are incredibly friendly, they are always willing to chat on the phone and listen to anything you have to say. I genuinely feel like I know them. They're both very efficient, as in every time I request something or leave a message they're always back in contact very quickly. Finally, they always backed me! I've had a right ordeal getting a job, constantly getting rejected for a multitude of fiddly and often picky reasons, yet they always came back with new opportunities which they were delighted to put me forwards for. Special Thanks has to go to Charlotte as most of the jobs I applied for were through her, as was the one I eventually got, but I equally could have gotten one off Jenny.
 
Thanks so much to those guys; I definitely think they should get a pay rise as they were so fantastic!:D"

New Job Title: Graduate Trainee Recruitment Consultant

"I used GRB to acquire my first professional role. The consultant I worked with was what I would call a true testament to professional service. Not only did I feel that GRB provided me with real opportunities, they guided me through the interview process and handled my employer so well that I felt that the job was assured. And assured it was so I have to thank GRB for the advancement in my career and for that I will always give them the kudos they deserve."

"GRB were extremely professional and fast in finding me a job after graduating. I received an excellent service from the consultants there and had numerous interviews booked in quickly.

New Job Title: Recruitment Consultant

"When I was fresh out of UNI I worked closely with a consultant at GRB and it was the best decision I ever made. She and I had a number of meetings to really pinpoint the kind of career path I wanted to take which I still am in now. Unfortunately it was not a long term engagement as I found myself with an offer for a great job in no time at all. I strongly recommend any newly graduated individual to contact GRB and reap the rewards and start your journey. 5* service focused on people not profits!"

"I'm writing this message to thanks the GRB team (especially Will and Aleks) for all your endeavours on my behalf in helping me secure a role. Without you guys I would probably still be one of the many CVs floating around the job sphere waiting for someone to notice me. I sent out my CV to a fair few agencies but I can wholeheartedly say you guys were the best at making me feel comfortable and eliminating most of the anxieties involved with the graduate job search process. Will and Aleks, your constant communication advising/informing me about new opportunities and the progress of my application were very much appreciated and helpful. At the moment I am enjoying the role, constantly learning new things and I feel pretty settled."

She kept me up to date at all times and was always a pleasure speaking with her. There should be more of her. She's amazing!Thank you guys. "
