Accounting services firm to the alternative investments industry
“GRB was recommended to me by a trusted friend who had used them successfully to recruit brilliant graduates for his firm. The first thing that stood out compared to other agencies we have previously used was the time the GRB consultant took to listen to our requirements and really understand the business. Being a small but fast-growing firm, it was imperative we hired a graduate that didn't want to join a corporate graduate scheme but really fit with our values and culture which was key. Very soon I received a shortlist of five graduates who we interviewed. We took three to the second round and I was very impressed with the quality of the candidates and could easily have taken them all. In the end, we had one role to fill so after the second interviews on Friday we offered on Monday and they are due to start in a few weeks time. A quick turnaround meant the process was stress-free and the customer service throughout was very impressive. When we need another high-calibre graduate I will definitely be calling GRB again!”
“Since 2013 we have used GRB to recruit a total of 19 graduates to join us as Business Analysts. Not only has every one performed really well within the business but what sets GRB apart is the consistently high service levels we have had over the years. I'm especially delighted with our Account Managers, Ruby and Lucy, who have both helped make the process so smooth. Lucy is brilliant, she only works three days a week but she keeps me up to date (even out of office hours) so nothing is too much trouble to change last minute. GRB have changed the way I recruit grads and it's definitely for the better! We have had such a successful campaign this year that I'm excited to recruit next year already! Nothing is too much to ask, and I don't feel pressured or nagged on top of my busy work load. They have taken the stress out of recruiting and for me that's a huge bonus.”

"We are very happy partnering with GRB. The candidates put forward have always matched our brief and been of a good calibre. We received four CVs and interviewed them all, taking two to final and offering one. We have always had good dialogue and communication from your team and follow ups have always been done efficiently. As we have successfully filled vacancies with GRB, we would certainly look to work together in the future again when needed.”
- Senior Advertising Manager
Fast Growing Consumer Finance Firm
"We have used GRB previously to source outstanding graduates for Risk Analyst roles and did not hesitate instructing GRB to help us again with a new job requirement. Due to rapid growth of the business, we needed to expand our team by hiring a Marketing graduate. We certainly made the right decision. Communication was great between Grace at GRB, HR and myself to ensure a seamless process throughout. GRB introduced a shortlist of top calibre CVs and we were impressed with all the graduates that were proposed. We are delighted with the candidate we chose and she has settled into the role very well".

"We have been incredibly grateful for the service provided by GRB over the past year (and previous years). Ian has successfully placed 5 graduates in our London office and 2 in our Paris office in 2014. His knowledge of our company, understanding of our ideal candidate profile and dedication to maintaining momentum in the process has been invaluable in what is always an 'urgent' push for new graduates in our business."

"I was very pleased with the outcome of my recent experience using the Graduate Recruitment Bureau. The consultant that I liaised with was professional and understood our requirements very well. I found the speed of service to be excellent and the quality of candidates provided to be very good. I would definitely use their service in the future."
- Recruitment Manager
"I would definitely recommend GRB to other companies. I would describe GRB as being able to provide a very personal service to both recruiting company as well as applicant. GRB seems to get a good understanding of their applicants and seem to work towards fulfilling their needs. Ian is very honest and client focused, which I appreciate a great deal".
- Graduate Recruitment and Development Manager
Large UK Bank
"We were struggling to find a large quantity of good analyst graduates. We had used a few recruiters but the quality was generally poor. GRB made a significant improvement: they listened to our needs, filtered CVs appropriately and generally made it easy for us to fill 13 graduate positions in a relatively short time. Thanks for your great work on this."

"Based in the Channel Islands can be a plus and negative when it comes to recruitment however coupled with time pressures and strict requirement on the academics and skills profile we turned to GRB for their expertise. Their nationwide presence and reputation enabled us to tap into a talent pool of amazing candidates - in quick smart time and in an extremely professional fashion thanks to Danielle. Well done and thank you."
- Head of Talent Management

"I've used GRB Online for a range of financial services institutions for their graduate campaigns and the number of applications generated has always made advertising on the site cost effective.
