EMPLOYERS Testimonials

“We engaged with Clements Grey to source a key Programme Manager within our business. Jay immediately sought to understand our business needs and challenges in recruiting for such a niche sector (Tobacco industry). Jay had a refreshing consultative approach to recruitment, held meetings with line managers, kept them up to date with regular progress reports and was able to advise on salary statistics. Furthermore, I was so impressed with the structured and transparent approach which Clements Grey offered, that I agreed to an exclusive partnership period during which over 20 placements were made on a contract and permanent basis across Management Projects, Mechanical Design, R&D, Electronics and Electrical.”

Ian Tindall, Innovation & Marketing Director – Molins

“We have been working with Clements Grey over the past 12 months. Our key contact quickly grasped our business across multiple sites and the challenges that we face recruiting within the Rail sector. They have provided us with an excellent service and go the extra mile as they have resourced and screened candidates for us 7 days a week to support our projects across contact and permanent vacancies. Their consultative and proactive approach kept line managers up to date with progress reports which included market trends, competitor activities, advertising results and the screening process itself. That proved extremely useful in understanding the marketplace as well as keeping us up to date with candidates applications to avoid losing them to competitors. In the past 12 months Clements Grey have successfully placed 8 candidates for contract and permanent roles within niche areas including Project Management, Planning, Manufacturing, QA. HSE and HR. We’re continuing to work with Clements Grey as Recruitment Partner to Knorr.”

Harjeet Moore (Head Of HR), Knorr-Bremse – Rail Services (UK) Limited

“We had been recruiting for a Service Manager for almost a year without any success; Jay at Clements Grey made contact and immediately arranged a meeting on site. Jay understood the technical requirement, team fit and most importantly, the drive and passion the individual required to do the role. I was delighted that Clements Grey successfully found our perfect candidate within just 6 weeks! Throughout the process, I was kept up to date with candidate’s availability, sent regular progress reports highlighting number of candidates interviewed, why they had not been shortlisted and supplied with salary expectations and market trends which was incredibly useful and not something which I received from our previous providers. Clements Grey are undoubtedly specialists within their field and offer a proactive, consultative and refreshingly professional approach to recruitment.”

Paul Reader (Head of Customer Service), Atlas Converting Equipment Ltd

“We engaged with Clements Grey as we were approached by Recruitment Consultant Jason Salt. At the time we were looking to recruit for a UK Managing Director position and Jason had provided an exclusive candidate that he was working with who seemed a perfect fit on paper. Jason was extremely professional and transparent from start to finish and every CV submitted from our agreement for this particular role was interviewed and was to a very high standard. Jason immediately sought to understand our business needs and challenges in recruiting for such a niche sector (High Precision Mass Spectrometry). Jason had a refreshing consultative approach to recruitment, kept them up to date with regular progress reports and was able to advise on salary statistics. We were delighted to offer the role to a candidate that Jason had presented for the Managing Director opportunity. Furthermore, I was so impressed with the structured and transparent approach which Clements Grey offered, that I agreed to work with Clements Grey for other roles in different areas of the business when we had a client meeting after the successful placement.”

Karen Fletcher (HR Manager) – NU Instruments

Jobseekers Testimonials

“Jay Suman from Clements Grey approached me regarding my situation of employment and availability. After a detailed screening, Jay very quickly understood my career requirements and having recognised this, I was asked to sign an NDA as an opportunity with a key client became available. Throughout the process Jay was professional, proactive and kept me up to date. Furthermore, they provided a high level of support from interview preparation to providing me with detailed interview feedback and after care support with setting up a limited company. I found the process transparent, professional and felt at ease knowing I was dealing with an established professional within the sector and that Clements Grey had my best interests at heart.”

Colin Pearson, HSE Specialist

“I was initially contacted by Jason from Clements Grey to discuss my CV and potential roles that may be of interest. I found Jason very professional and knowledgeable and was impressed with his proactive approach with regard to potential target companies that could be of interest to me. Based on my Scientific and Spectrometry Manufacturing background I was interested in working for a company called Nu Instruments, within days of mentioning this to Jason he had secured an interview for me. Throughout the process Jason offered support with detailed interview preparation and feedback via Skype. I am now the Managing Director of Nu Instruments and cannot thank Jason enough for all his hard work, perseverance and diligence in helping me to secure my dream position. I would not hesitate to recommend Jason and Clements Grey to anyone looking for their next role or as an employer looking to recruit.”

Russell Webster, MD

“Anna supported me throughout the whole recruitment process. We had our initial conversation about what I wanted to achieve over the next 5 – 10 years and from there we discussed potential roles to help me fulfill that plan. Anna worked quickly to approach the right companies on my behalf and I was offered the role of Paraplanner after my first arranged interview.  Anna coached me through accepting my offer, getting the right deal for myself and then was always on hand to speak to. This was particularly helpful when it came to handing my notice in where we had several conversations about the best way to do this. Anna has provided me with continued support and as a result I have recommended her service to friends.”

Stacey Chamberlin, Paraplanner

“The service provided by Clements Grey and in particular by Anna was very professional both in terms of quality & speed. Anna was quick to understand what was important to me both personally and professionally and what I was looking for from my new role. Anna took the time to get to know me which was invaluable in my securing my new role. Team fit is of the up most importance to my new company.  Anna invested time into my application and we spoke at length ahead of my interview about the company and role so that I was fully prepared for my interview. I was quickly offered the position and Anna helped me throughout the whole process, even meeting me for coffee to talk about any queries or questions I might have.”
