"Claire gave a very personal service, and was able to arrange a meeting in person the day before my first interview. This settled nerves and gave me interview practice. Claire also provided me with lots of information about the company, allowing me to impress the following day.
I had initially applied for a different job through Grafton Banks. However, Claire felt I would be more suitable for another position. It was a much closer commute, and actually reflected my needs much greater. As discussed above, Claire was always available, making time to meet with her the day before the primary interview. After each interview, she was interested to hear how every aspect of the interview had gone, and called me back straight away with news from the employer.
In the appointment I had with Claire, we spoke for an extended period about any queries I had. I was new to accountancy, and having just come from University, interviewing for a junior accountancy role seemed daunting. Claire talked me through some of the basics of accountancy as well as interview techniques, allowing me to feel more confident and prepared.
I am pleased to say that the interview, my first, was successful. Thanks, in the most part, to Claire for her helpful tips and advice.
Five weeks in, I'm enjoyed my new job. I was most fortunate to have come in contact with Grafton Banks Finance. 25th October 2013."

"Claire was very good and understood what kind of role I was looking for and was honest with the type of opportunities available.
She only passed suitable roles over to me and spoke to me about any potential jobs that could be out there. Claire regularly kept me updated even in the early weeks when jobs were more thin on the ground. Claire was a good person to talk to openly and was refreshingly unpushy. I would thoroughly recommend Claire and Grafton Banks Finance even if I had not got a job through Claire."

"I have had a very good experience with Grafton Banks and have been put forward for more positions by this recruitment specialist than all the other agencies together. Their approach is friendly but always professional. Their recruiters have been extremely proactive and contact me on a regular basis with information on vacancies that are of interest to me. They are particularly good at matching the candidate to the role and although I have not been successful to date I realise that Grafton Banks are the most likely to play a part in my eventual success in the job search. I am indeed "delighted""

"What I really appreciate about Grafton Banks is that they do not compartmentalise finance professionals into pre-conceived boxes, rather they value each and every candidate on their own unique talent. This matters and the personal touch really helps to distinguish Grafton Banks from their many competitors. We have met many times over the years and every time it feels like meeting with an old friend.
Grafton Banks fly in the face of anyone who believes that agencies add little or no value. Within days of finishing a previous contract earlier than expected, Grafton Banks secured me another role. In fact, one of the best contract roles I have had to date and I have been contracting now for ten years at a senior level for many amazing clients! A win-win-win, for them, for me and most of all for the client.
The beginning of this year was unusually tough. Always a challenging time to be on the contract market and this time around, more agencies than usual were being particularly despondent. Throughout this time, Grafton Banks bucked the trend and proactively went out of their way to keep in regular contact. I found their frank and honest assessment of the market coupled with a good dose of positivity to be a huge source of encouragement and inspiration.
Unlike some of their competitors, on the rare occasion that no one was available to take my call, Grafton Banks without fail always returned my calls in a timely fashion. There is never the feeling of being rushed or being treated like a sales target.
Please keep doing what you are doing. It works. Massive thanks to Paul and Emma in particular for their much valued work- it really does make a difference. June 2015"

"Matt listened to our requirements over a telephone call and that we required an experienced temporary Credit Controller who could come straight in and hit the ground running. I was sent a list of suitable candidates and after looking through only three CVs, found the perfect candidate who started with us the next week. Matt stayed in contact and kept me informed right up until the candidate started, he also came in to see me at the office a couple of weeks after. Matt has been available with any queries that have arisen throughout the placement and has been extremely helpful. I would just like to say how impressed I have been with Matt and Grafton Banks professionalism."
