“GRB can deliver fast! We used GRB two years ago to recruit an Engineer, who has now been promoted, thus creating a new vacancy I needed to fill. Based in a small village in central Scotland and with a limited number of our target, Civil Engineering graduates available meant it was likely to be a challenge. I knew GRB's expertise and access to a wider talent pool from across the UK would be a safe pair of hands. My project deadlines also meant I needed someone very quickly. I gave Faith a call and she took our job description, ran a search and pre-screened candidates for me. I selected the CV of a graduate from the Top 10 University for Civil Engineering on a Wednesday and then interviewed and offered them on a Thursday. I think that's a record turnaround!"

“This is the third time we have used GRB and have always been very impressed with the service offered. We needed to recruit a graduate with some experience to join us in Gloucestershire as Process Engineers. The location and our niche industry has proven tricky to attract candidates however GRB have always provided an impressive choice and calibre of graduates who are interested. In the most recent round of recruitment I had six of our Senior Managers interview four graduates and we liked them all! It was hard to narrow it down to just one but we’ll be back next time for sure!.”

"GRB handled our recruitment very professionally, and worked together to provide a unified response from GRB. The candidates we interviewed did vary on quality, but we found four excellent candidates, and secured two. They kept the process on track, and delivered on time. They were both very helpful and provided an excellent service."
- HR Manager
"Since 2015 we have trusted GRB to source extremely intelligent and skilled graduate talent, for our graduate scheme and direct entry vacancies. Our academic requirements are one of the highest in the industry – A/A*A level, STEM degree subjects, 2:1, Top 15 University – and GRB has consistently introduced exactly the right calibre who we have hired. GRB have consistently delivered as they understand our business and have the reach and depth in their talent pool for us to access at any time of the year. GRB are our supplier of choice for graduates and will continue to be so for future top up campaigns."
- Head of Graduate Recruitment
"We recently were looking to recruit a new graduate for the post of site engineer. We tried various approaches but the services of the Graduate Recruitment Bureau were undoubtedly the best. They presented us with a good range of candidates. They all were a reasonable match for our selection criteria and as a result we were able to short-list a number of suitable candidates. We ultimately appointed one of their candidates who has proved to be an excellent choice".
- Head of Software Development
"We have worked with GRB for around four years. GRB source and supply our growing organisation with top tier graduates for our graduate scheme. The interview process is thorough and we will only hire the very best at interview. In our most recent assignment with GRB we made three offers and have many more equally capable candidates in the process. GRB are a pleasure to work, provide the quality we demand back up with a professional service. We hope to continue our business in the future."

International Engineering and Construction Contractor
An advertising campaign we ran didn't provide us with the quality of graduate applicants we needed so we searched for a recruitment agency with the best track record in sourcing high calibre graduates and found GRB. They delivered not once but twice. We initially saw ten CVs of exceptional Engineering graduates and chose seven to interview. We then then took five through to final selection and hired two. Rebecca managed the process efficiently and professionally throughout and we will definitely turn to GRB again in the future."
Nuclear Decommissioning firm
"We partnered GRB this summer to source for two Graduate Engineers. We worked efficiently and closely with GRB during the months of April and May to provide a shortlist of 8 high calibre candidates, 4 of whom attended a final interview and two were successfully hired. We had a list of criteria for our search, requiring engineers with excellent communication skills, interest and ideally experience in the Nuclear industry alongside great academics. We took a great deal of time and detail qualifying each candidate and we had a smooth and successful process.It is the first time I have used GRB and I was extremely impressed with both the calibre of the candidates and the personal service received from a recruitment company who did not know anything about the business prior to this."

Engineering Software Consultancy
"An unusual set of specific skills were required to fulfil the roles for which I was aiming to fill and GRB consistently managed to find excellent candidates exactly meeting these tough requirements. Interviewing unsuitable applicants is a complete waste of time for all concerned. We learned quickly that using GRB saved us time and money when it came to recruitment."

Both in the initial provision of a candidate list and subsequent additions, GRB were prompt and efficient. The information provided was concise and well presented. Our e-mails and phone calls were always answered promptly and professionally. GRB went out of their way to be helpful, even when we had to change interviewing arrangements on more than one occasion. We will certainly be using them again should we be seeking to recruit a new graduate."
