Thousands of our clients place a huge value on what we do for them, considering us a part of their business. They do this because of our relentless belief that a company is only as good as the people in it!
GETTING TO KNOW YOU
We spend considerable time learning about you as a business. We’re not interested in a quick fix to line our pockets, we’re in it for the long haul! Building long-term relationships on a solid foundation of good customer service.
Our team offer a wealth of experience within recruitment and our specialised sectors, totalling in excess of 90 years! Therefore, you can be assured that we’ll have an excellent understanding of the industry and your needs.
Our database of candidates is unrivalled amongst our competitors, having collated an excellent national network full of quality qualified property and financial services professionals since 2010.
QUALITY OVER QUANTITY
We’re founded on a ‘quality over quantity’ ethos meaning we’re not interested in sending large quantities of unsuitable candidates to your business. We’ll only send over quality candidates, that are not only suitable for your roles but share the same beliefs.
Unlike many of our competitors, we cover the whole of the UK. So, if you’re a multi-branch organisation there’s no need to go elsewhere for assistance as we’ll cover any area you need no matter where you're based.
ONE CONTACT, ONE REGION, ONE SECTOR
Having region and sector-specific recruiters allows us to maintain long-term relationships by ensuring clients have a regular point of contact within GCB. Being assigned a niche enables our recruiters to have an unrivalled perception of the employment landscape.
You want us to find you that perfect fit for your business and we want to help. Naturally one of the first things you'll ask us is “what do you charge?”. Our rates are simple, and nothing is hidden from you. Firstly, unlike other companies in our line of work we won't charge you a penny unless we place an individual within your business.
We all know that the unforeseen can happen and recruitment is no different. So, if your placement doesn’t perform for any reason we have you covered. From day one we have a rebate structure in place to protect you in the unlikely event of an individual leaving your employment.
