At Gold Group, we always look to build long-term relationships with candidates, just as with clients, particularly as candidates not only use us whenever they are considering moving jobs, but also because they so often become clients as their careers develop.
Here are some recent testimonials to give a flavour of the quality of service we offer our candidates. We would also like to take this opportunity to thank all of our candidates for the faith and trust they place in us.
If you would like to discuss any of these testimonials further or ask about other examples of our work, please call our Claims team on 01342 330 535 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
"I was impressed by Gold Group’s understanding of the industry, clearly they have developed good relations over time with leading organisations and key personnel. They had a sound understanding of what I required and the area I was looking to progress my career. Within a week I had two interviews organised with leading international consultancies, and two employment offers subsequently came from this. Gold Group's consultants were honest and straight forward to deal with, I would have no hesitation in recommending them to others, as they are people who deliver."

"I have used Gold Group for several years, as and when I have needed to secure professional resource. I have found that the candidates put forward are always of the highest standard and well suited to my requirements. I have also recently used Gold Group to further my own career, and have been entirely satisfied with the professional manner in which Gold Group conducts its business. The effort that Gold Group goes to ensure that candidate and opportunity are properly matched is outstanding."
R.J. - Associate Director of Quantum's
"When the time came to look for a new opportunity, I specifically contacted Gold Group having been impressed by both their web-site and a previous telephone conversation I had had with one of their consultants whom I found both extremely professional and easy to deal with. I was immediately impressed by the consultant's understanding of the type of role I was searcing for, in particular with reference to my experience in dispute resolution. Gold Group communicated well on the various roles available and maintained momentum until the perfect opportunity became available. I am very happy with the service received from Gold (as I know my new Employer is too!) and I would not hesitate to recommend them - they are head and shoulders above agencies I have used previously."

"Having dealt with Gold Group for a number of years I have no trouble in recommending them. In particular I have found them to be a cut above the competition in terms of matching opportunities with candidates. Their approach is based on well cultivated relationships with the key players in our sector - the benefit being that they are all too often the first to know of a potential opportunity for either the candidate or employer, and in pole position to make a successful placement".

"Gold Group has been my key recruitment agency in my latest job search. Their approach has been most professional and personable. Gold Group initially listened to what I expected and carried out my wishes to the letter. Gold Group kept me fully informed of developments and maintained a realistic approach throughout the recruitment process. Our comunications were frequent but always relevant and I enjoyed the professional relationship during my recruitment process. I am entirely satisfied with Gold Group's performance and I look forward to have them act for me, or any company I work with in the future. Furthermore, I would have no reservations in recommending Gold Group to anyone who is considering changing their employment."
G .Glassey - Associate Director (Claims)
"Having had numerous approaches from other agencies, I was encouraged by the fact that Gold Group actually understood my particular niche in the industry and has strong contacts with a wide range of employers. Despite economic conditions, I was pleased that two roles were quickly identified and the interviews made easier by valuable advice on the key issues that the employers were known to consider important. It was clear that their existed long-standing relationships with the firms concerned and the roles on offer were genuine and immediate. In the space of 3 weeks I had received an offer which perfectly suited my circumstances, and provided me with an opportunity that would not have been realised had it not been for the in-depth knowledge and contacts of Gold Group’s consultants."
K . S - Senior Delay Analyst
"I would like to thank Gold Group for the recent introduction to Trett Consulting. We were able to come to an excellent arrangement and I will be joining their Houston office shortly. It is a very satisfactory mutual situation where I will be able to apply my skills and expertise in areas where it will be valuable to them. I want to thank Gold Group for shepherding my resume to the right people and keeping an eye out for their needs and my skills."
B.B - Director - Trett Consulting
"I have dealt with Gold Group on a number of occasions and I've found them to be a significant cut above the normal level of recruitment agencies. They show interest in the candidate and take the trouble to understand what the candidate has to offer and is looking for in a position. This is refreshing given the usual contact from other agencies based on a word search from the CV. Gold Group also take great trouble to ensure that the candidate is settled in their new role and make frequent contact to achieve this. I have recommended many other Consultants within my field (delay analysis & claims) use Gold because of their beacon like performance amid a sea of mediocrity."
K.W. - Freelance Claim Consultant
"I am both pleased and grateful at the service received. From an initial introduction I accepted a new position within around 4 weeks, considerably quicker than I intially envisaged. I found the advice and assistance provided in preparing for interviews very helpful, and I think this proved benificial in creating a good impression, as I came away feeling positive after all my interviews whether successful or otherwise. On the experience to date, I am very pleased with my new position, which desite the onerous economic climate, provides an excellent package of remuneration and potential for personal development, not to mention quality of life. I would not hesitate in recommending Gold Group to any one else in future, indeed I did suggest Gold to former colleagues who were also considering their positions."
R.B - Pontin Consulting - Associate
“Generally, I have found the mainstream recruitment consultants that have been active in the construction industry for years of little use to me. They understand how to place 'round pegs into round holes', insofar as they can no doubt find mainstream quantity surveying jobs for mainstream quantity surveyors, but they completely fail to understand the market for specialist professionals like myself. They do not appreciate the aspirations of those of us who are (say) dually qualified in a construction profession and in the law. Gold Group seems to be the exception. I have found them to be hard-working and straight in their dealings, but above all, they have taken the trouble to research and understand the market for specialist construction professionals like myself. I would have no hesitation in using them again if the need arises and I would, of course, recommend anyone seeking similar positions to contact Gold Group.”
Associate Director - EC Harris
“I am absolutely delighted in respect of the position found with Pontin Consulting given that I believe it offers a good match with my career aspirations, and is in line with my current level of remuneration.”
Associate Director - Pontin Consulting
“I recently started a new role as a Construction Consultant. Of all the agents I spoke to initially, Gold Group was the most knowledgeable about the construction industry. They are very professional and effective in identifying potential positions and was the only agent with enough contacts to identify a potential role for me at a recently started company - one of my criteria. Gold Group was equally effective in negotiations. By the time I accepted the position, all of my criteria were met and I had no doubts it was the right decision. I would recommend Gold Group to anyone looking for a role in this industry - indeed I have already done so.”
A. Nussbaun - Claims Consultant - Tudor Rose Partnership
“I enlisted the services of Gold Group to help me achieve a suitable Claims Planning position in an Australian Construction consulting organisation. My goal was to find a good organisation, with a proven track record that would enable me to broaden my horizons and further my career in the Construction Industry by taking a side-step into the consultant field. Gold Group's services were invaluable in my placement. They provided a number of suitable opportunities and communicated very effectively with both potential employers and myself. As a result, I now have an excellent opportunity to meet my career aspirations.”
Andrew McKenna - Claim Consultant - Hill International
“As a Claims Consultant, I am regularly contacted by recruitment consultants offering huge salary increases and opportunities. Where Gold Group differed from the majority of these calls, they were able to deliver on all their promises. They worked tirelessly to find me a position that was too good an opportunity to pass up. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone contemplating a move.”
