"We used GRL to assist in the recruitment of a new Business Development Director for our organisation. From start to finish the service was structured, with a clear plan of attack, with sensible time frames and ultimately we stuck to that plan to secure the recruitment of an individual who we firmly believe will be excellent for our business. The outline objectives were very clear, if our stipulations were unrealistic we were always told, and we couldn’t fault the service levels or the outcome from start to finish. Many thanks to Matt, Paul and Nick who looked after us."
