What People Say

Ben Chesser, CEO


"With no internal recruitment function we turned to GCR, who we had been working for 18 months on a contingent basis for other roles in ranging from Account Directors to our CTO search.

Engaging with GCR not only reduced our costs but meant we also benefitted from the founding of a long term recruitment strategy we can now enhance and develop"

"Hadie found us a candidate for a critical business role. We’re very picky but Hadie took time to really understand our business and requirements - her qualification process was spot on. 

Having a good understanding of our market means GCR are able to ensure that candidates are relevant. Their patience and relentless good humour made doing business a pleasure and I have no hesitation in recommending GCR"
