Don’t just take our word for it, below are just a few kind comments from some of our clients:

“I’m dropping you a quick note to thank you for your part in helping me find the right person to join Coca-Cola.  My initial brief to you was to search for candidates who could demonstrate a track record in Sales Management within the same or relevant Category as our own.  My second priority was to recruit an individual who was not only compatible with the current opportunity I had, but for them also to be ‘key talent’ of the future, with the potential to develop through our business into larger & higher profile positions.  I am delighted that following recent interviews your candidate achieved all of my criteria and has therefore been offered a career with Coca-Cola.

I would also like to personally thank you and GRG Recruitment  for your regular & honest communication in addition to your advice throughout the search & selection process.”

“The key thing that stood out about GRG Recruitment was their consistency of high quality candidates that were presented and interviewed. We are delighted with our appointment through GRG Recruitment and look forward to working with them again as our business continues to grow.”

Chief Executive Officer -Typhoo Tea Ltd


“We retained GRG Recruitment to undergo their market mapping program to identify and attract talent to our marketing team.  Their approach was with real integrity, depth, and knowledge, with a unique ability to make things happen. As a result of their market mapping exercise, not only have we appointed 3 key talents above the expectations of what we felt would be available to us, but through GRG, have developed a pool of talent for the future.  

 I can honestly say that having worked with many Recruiters during my career, Gareth and GRG Recruitment have excelled. They are a real pleasure to work with, and I would thoroughly recommend them, and their expertise, to others.” 

Marketing Director, The Jeyes Group Ltd


“Tulip Ltd are a £1.2billion UK turnover business employing over 8,000 people. Over the years we have used a number of recruitment agencies for our senior and key appointments. We chose GRG Recruitment for a critical senior sales role based upon their initial approach and following meeting. GRG recruitment exceeded our expectations by finding and securing candidates who not only met the requirements of the job specification, but also had the personality and motivation to match our company’s culture. This could only have been achieved by a recruitment consultancy that clearly understands the requirements of the FMCG market, its relationships with the retail sector, and the demands that places on individual performance. It also shows a recruitment agency with an appreciation and instinct for candidates who offer the cultural match, so essential to blend effectively into a new role. On this basis we are already working with GRG Recruitment again and are pleased to recommend them to other companies within FMCG.”

“Having struggled to find the right people for a key Buyer position through our usual methods, we spoke and met with GRG Recruitment who added a new vigor and enthusiasm to our search.  GRG listened and studied the requirements set to match the personality and drive of individuals needed to understand our business -its past, its present and future plans and direction, plus possessed the highest technical buying capabilities.  GRG did not disappoint and within no time at all had exceeded our expectations. I have no hesitation in recommending GRG Recruitment to others within Retailing.”

“Your knowledge and contacts within our sector was very impressive and this clearly showed in the speed and calibre of candidates presented to us for what was a niche and complex brief.

We will look to use GRG Recruitment again based upon this for future opportunities elsewhere within our Commercial teams”

We had not used them previously, and following a comprehensive meeting, retained them on a number of on-going and challenging vacancies within the team. They were extremely diligent, pro-active and hard working in their approach to the challenge, and kept us regularly informed throughout the process on all matters. We are really pleased with the calibre of people already recruited through GRG into our buying team, and I look forward to continuing this partnership with them into the future.”

Gareth’s clearly professional, knowledgeable and offers a genuine consultative approach that I admired to getting the right result for our business moving forward. He not only sourced and attracted excellent candidates that matched the brief, but also alternate angles and backgrounds to contemplate. Our successful appointment actually coming from a background we wouldn’t traditionally have thought of. His effort is unquestionable, and his support invaluable. Gareth really delivered on all areas, and we will continue to use Gareth as Kokomo continues to grow.”

Sales Director -Kokomo Toiletries Ltd


Seafood Holdings has gone through phenomenal growth in recent years and we were in a position to strengthen our set up across our buying function and sales teams at Directorship and NAM level.  It was vital for us to secure the best people possible from the market to maintain the high standards of quality of product and service we offer as our business grows to the next level.  We were approached by GRG Recruitment who understood our FMCG market and our requirements very well.  As a result GRG Recruitment produced some exceptional candidates that we felt would have previously not been available to us, and the quality did not disappoint. They responded quickly and the friendly professional advice given throughout the whole process helped us to recruit two of the top talents in our field.  We would certainly recommend utilising GRG Recruitment to other FMCG organizations.”

 “I met with Gareth from GRG Recruitment to outline a key vacancy within my team that was required. We not only needed a specific skill set, but the personality of the individual was vital to who we are as a business, and department. Gareth was informative throughout the process and delivered upon our challenging objective. I was very impressed by Gareth and GRG’s approach, and have already recommended them to others.”

“This was the first time we’ve worked with GRG Recruitment and we were really impressed by their approach. They invested time to really understand our business and the brief, and then presented a high quality of candidates.  We intended to recruit one national account manager but GRG’s candidates were so strong we ended up recruiting two! GRG Recruitment are a very friendly, knowledgeable and professional agency that have the ability to source and attract high quality individuals. Gareth is a pleasure to work with and we will certainly be using GRG Recruitment again as our business continues to grow.”
