Ali Johnstone-Mackie - 2015/16
Business Studies with Human Resource Management at the University of Sussex

Doing an industrial placement here at the GRB has been an extremely rewarding experience. Since the get go I have felt like a valued part of the GRB team. I have been given the opportunity to explore various aspects of the business and have gained a vital understanding of the graduate market.
So far, I have had the chance to get hands on experience resourcing candidates for some of our top clients and have had the pleasure of placing graduates into their dream roles. I have also had the opportunity to travel the UK visiting different Universities, gaining experience in managing small teams and learning invaluable knowledge about face-to-face and online marketing techniques.
Overall, I have thoroughly enjoyed the high level of responsibility and the variety of tasks I have been presented with. I feel that this experience has put me at a great advantage for when I enter the graduate market myself. And although it has been challenging at times, the social events and the potential to earn commission have both been great benefits of the job!


Tyra Bateman - 2014/15
Business Studies at the University of Plymouth

My time at GRB has been a remarkable experience, with recognition for good business practice and regular social events I was made to feel welcome and a valued employee from day one.

As my role was rotational I experienced many different perspectives of the company and had the opportunity to have a real impact. From working with the Marketing team at different Universities Fresher's and Careers fairs to resourcing candidates for well-known clients I attained a high level of responsibility and was allowed to manage my own projects.

My time at GRB has been challenging but extremely rewarding, living in Brighton and earning commission alongside my salary was a great perk and the role has opened my eyes to the graduate market and has left me in good stead for when I graduate myself.


Tashinga Garwe - 2012/13
Economics and Geography at the University of Birmingham

"An invaluable experience, GRB is a great place to work. In an ideal location right in the heart of Brighton (the perfect city for young professionals and students) and the people that work here are all so welcoming and contribute well to the experience both inside and outside of work. It has been really important to be flexible, making the transition to marketing from resourcing, but it's definitely good practice for being more adaptable in the future."


Lauren Salmon - 2011/12
International Business at the University of Portsmouth

Never a dull moment, I have already learnt a lot (and earned a lot!) since starting my placement with GRB. I have been given the opportunity to try my hand at many different elements within recruitment and marketing, from interviewing and managing job specifications from clients to managing small teams at fairs and organising event logistics. Now I am working on creating contacts and marketing campaigns and will be returning to recruitment in the New Year to experience different recruitment areas and more client interaction!
