New Job Title: Graduate Engineering Scheme

"I just wanted to thank Rebecca Johnson for her part in helping me to secure an engineering graduate scheme. Throughout the process, it seemed like Rebecca had my best interests at heart and offered a lot of very useful information on what to expect at the various processes and how best to impress the employers. Rebecca has been both informative and easy to talk to and it is clear to me that anybody who is assigned to her is very fortunate. Having been offered two positions through Rebecca, I am hoping to sign a contract for a position shortly."

New Job Title: Graduate Communications Role

"GRB were fantastic. One of the few recruitment firms that are willing to help graduates with little work experience. My recruiter (Jenny) was great, keeping me updated on the progress of my application. The team were also quick to respond to any queries I had. All in all a great experience."

Degree:  BSc Medical Technology and MSc Nanotechnology
University: UCL
New Job Title: Graduate Pharmaceutical Forecasting Analyst

"Initially when I signed up to the Graduate Recruitment Bureau (GRB), I thought they were your typical recruitment consultancy, one that will only push for an investment they see worthy. How wrong I was, when I received a targeted job advert for the sector of my choice, I thought I might as well apply seeming as though I have nothing to lose.

I was suprised to receive a call back very soon from Lucy Bates, a manager at GRB who really knew what she was talking about. She interviewed me over the phone to see if I was suitable for the role. When my CV was forwarded, ai was supported every step of the way with regular phone calls and emails. GRB even gave me information that was useful for the interview showing they truly have an edge over other recruitors who claim to help graduates. To get placed in a top company very soon in this job market, I can only credit GRB for their support. Lucy and the team did a fantastic job.

I can only conclude that if you have the talent, GRB will do their best to ensure you are placed. Thanks to Lucy and the team! They are awesome."

University: University of Surrey
New Job Title: Commercial Bid Support Analyst

"I first found out about GRB when a student forwarded details about the agency to members on my course. I signed up for updates in the areas I was interested in looking for and then got regular emails through with current vacancies that matched my interests. I also got some emails that were matched specifically to me, one of which was the role I secured with the help of GRB. Throughout the application process, the staff at GRB were really helpful and quick to reply to questions, so I couldn't recommend them enough."

New Job Title: Graduate Forensic Accountant

"I had a great experience with the GRB. On top of guiding me through every stage of the application, Ian gave me the inside scoop about the company and the role, which not only gave me an advantage through the application process but also helped me make a much more informed decision. I certainly recommend applying for a job through the GRB and, well, the proof is in the pudding; I got the job!"

Name: Spiros
Degree:  Accountancy and Finance
University: University of Bristol
New Job Title: Application Consultant

"In a highly competitive market, demonstrating the qualities your interviewer is really looking for, and not just giving cliché answers you read online, I believe is crucial. To achieve that, you need to know exactly what the role is about and what is going to make you successful there. I would like to thank GRB for providing me with this information and guiding me so well through the whole process."

Name: James
Degree:  Accountancy and Finance
University: Lancaster University
New Job Title: Graduate Commercial Finance Trainee

"I sent my CV into GRB as I was recommended to by a friend who had found a graduate job through them. I didn't hear anything for a while, but it was reassuring to know that even though there may have been little contact, behind the scenes people must have been working hard to find a suitable role that would suit my needs and personal specification as I was contacted a few months later with job specification which really excited me. I was helped through the process every stage of the way by Charlotte who was extremely enthusiastic in giving me advice and tips about the assessment centre and interviews. From applying to final interview only took one week and I am know a trainee management accountant for a the UK market leader and global insulation manufacturer so obviously I couldn't speak highly enough of the service I received from GRB and would recommend it to any graduate searching for a job. I would also say don't give up hope of getting the job you want. It will happen. It took me two years and it could have been longer if I hadn't submitted my CV to Graduate Recruitment Bureau."

New Job Title: Graduate Digital Marketing Analyst

"Out of the three or four graduate recruiters I was involved with on my job hunt, my experience with GRB was by far the best. Lucy and Grace were both fantastic to work with and without their help, the career path ahead of me would be very different. I was treated like a person throughout, not a prospect (which is where the experience differed from the other recruitment firms), and with their help I have landed my dream role."

"GRB provided me with an exceptional service from start to finish. I initially got in contact with Owen the Sales Manager at GRB.

From speaking with him he completely understood what I was looking for and matched my profile with applicable opportunities. Together we targeted the opportunities most suited to what I was looking for. Ultimately the service from GRB and Owen led to me securing a great career move. I am extremely happy in my new role and would like to thank the team at GRB for all they did. I'd definitely recommend GRB to any grads straight out of Uni or second Jobbers like myself."

"I have had nothing but fantastic support from the guys at GRB. In 2 months I had a total of 4 interviews at 2 potential employers, and Aleks helped me every step of the way. I had regular contact with Aleks between the 3 interviews I had and really appreciated his support. He gave me a few very important tips that he had picked up on over his time working with the interviewer which really strengthened my case, and ultimately got me the job. Aleks even backed my decision to turn down a job offer from the first interview I had, which I was very grateful for as he had already invested a lot of time into me but was happy to find me the job that was right for me! I have already recommended GRB to all my friends looking for jobs, and would do so to anybody who wants to feel supported every step of the way until arriving at a job that you are very happy about! Thank you so much for helping me get to where I am - I'm now realising how lucky I am to work here!"

I can whole-heartedly say that I would recommend them and wish them all the best."

New Job Title: Graduate Market Research Data Processor

"After months of submitting applications and CVs to agencies and graduate schemes to no avail, the Graduate Recruitment Bureau called me up out of the blue to say that they had a role that they felt I was well suited for. After discussing this job in more detail, they helped me tailor my CV to the company and write a decent cover letter - and after getting me an interview, helped me with interview prep, sending me questions to research, and topics to discuss. As well as giving sound advice and finding me an amazing graduate job, Danielle was in touch regularly to see how I was doing, and to ensure that I was comfortable and confident. I can't imagine finding a local graduate job that made use of my skills and interests without the GRB."

"Rebecca at the GRB was friendly, helpful and attentive during my Engineering graduate job search. I first approached the GRB with a specific job application in mind but, after speaking with Rebecca about my interests, ended up applying to a role I would have never heard of otherwise. It was in an area I had not considered but was well suited to and the GRB recognised this due to their experience and expertise. I was helped with adjusting my CV for the role, received interview tips tailored to the company and was offered support at every stage. I was successful in interview and assessment centre and ended up taking the role and am very happy on the graduate scheme. I was also sent a congratulations card and gift from the GRB!
