At Gold Group, we always look to build long-term relationships with clients. The only way to do that is to listen extremely carefully to their exact recruitment needs, to work thoroughly and assiduously behind the scenes, to only present candidates who are definitely worthy of consideration, to offer good value for money and to go the extra mile at every step of the process.
Here are some recent testimonials from clients who believe we do just that. We would also like to take this opportunity to thank all of our clients for the trust and the business they place with us.
“Over the last four years we have successfully used Colin (Gold) to source specialist design and commissioning resource into a very demanding programme. With regular communication in the early stages, Colin (Gold) was able to understand our technical requirements and match a number of key individuals to our very specific requirements.
During this period the working relationship has been maintained via regular dialogue and any changes or additions to the resource requirements have been well understood, anticipated and managed well on both sides. Colin (Gold) remains a key source for high caliber resource.”
Michael P - Engineering Manager – Defence Engineering

“Just an email to say "thanks" for the hard work and efforts in sourcing suitable candidates for our planning positions. As you know, this was a fairly big recruitment drive with several positions to be filled. In particular, Gold Group showed professionalism and dedication in securing interview times, liaising with the successful candidates and ensuring a smooth transition from introduction to start date. A job well done and many thanks.”

“My dealings with Gold Group over the past few months have always been very satisfactory. The temporary staff that they have recommended to me have always been up to my requested specifications. Gold Group are extremely helpful, always contactable and returns my calls. I have taken on several staff through Gold Group and always found them to be reliable etc. The only reason Gold Group has not managed to supply me with more staff, is that our capacity at the moment is limited. I will continue to use Gold Group to resource any temporary vacancies that occur in the future.”
Peter Beagles - Planning Services Manager - London Borough Bromley
"My experience of using the services of Gold Group is that they listen carefully to your enquiry, clarify any areas of concern and then they state what they can offer at that moment in time and give you a date for adding further advice or candidates. I respect their honesty, prompt attention and patience in dealing with candidates, and at times, the clients!"

Robert Young - Head of Development Control and Major Projects, Cherwell District Council
“I have been employing project control personnel for projects in Dubai and Abu Dhabi for four years and have been using Gold Group for the last year. I believe in one point of contact, which allows a working relationship to develop, Gold Group was happy to oblige with my request. I have found the service given by Gold Group to be excellent. They always listen to my requirements very carefully and quickly understand the type of person I am looking for. The Middle East demands a high pace of business life and Gold Group always reacts quickly and generally is able to offer high quality candidates, many of which I have been able to employ. The Gold Group team are good communicators and keep me informed of progress against my requirements and I know they look after their candidates through the whole selection process and follows up with them once they are in employment and have moved to the Middle East, something which I find very useful. Overall, Gold Group's attitude to recruitment is very professional and I have had no hesitation in recommending them to some of my colleagues.”

They work very hard to understand not only the skills needed, but the cultural fit within the organisation.

We work best with people who understand our business and how we operate. Honesty and transparency are the key elements of why this relationship works.”

Mark Ayers - Operations Planning & Logistics Manager, Fine Tubes
“Whilst I am in contact with a number of other recruitment agencies, I have to say that you have not been as 'pushy' and 'pestering' as other agencies that may ring on a weekly basis and, frankly, are sometimes a real nuisance. You keep a respectful, professional distance, but I have had the confidence to know that when I have needed some assistance, Gold Group is available and contactable and has always returned phone calls and messages promptly. In my discussions with you, there has been a clear wealth of experience and knowledge of the employment market in this sector and you have often willingly shared this with me at very short notice, even when you may have been unable to help or provide the personnel to the timescale I was looking for. In addition, but perhaps more importantly, it is a pleasure to talk to you. Your attitude is bright, friendly and responsive you give the impression that we are the only people that you are searching for and that nothing is too much trouble. As you know, I have recommended Gold Group to my colleagues and to HR.”
Paul Edwards - Acting Head of Development Control - Selby District Council

Corrine Ward - Recruitment Administrator - AREVA T&D UK
“I had been trying to fill a vacancy for months when I was introduced to Gold Group. Within 2 weeks we had a successful candidate. The communication and professionalism shown to me as a client means that every time I have a difficult vacancy I will call Gold Group, as I am confident they will be able to assist me.”
Catherine Gillon - HR & Office Manager, Applecross
“Gold Group recently assisted with a placement of an Interim-Planning Officer who started here in January. Gold Group had led the information about the availability of this person well & in a timely fashion. They were helpful in giving me more information about the candidate & fixing up an interview. Once I had decided to take this person on, Gold Group was expeditious in getting the contract out & completing the arrangement. I would say that I have had very satisfactory service.”
Bob Evans - Planning Manager - Tandridge Borough Council
“It's been a pleasure working with you in the recruitment of Ranjeeth Nadipalli. I have found your services to be professional and a constant timely check being provided to monitor the situation. Ranjeeth is what I expected, an eager to learn and enthusiastic professional with a good analytical toolset. I look forward to working with you again in the future.”
Will Fung - Lead Planner, May Gurney - East Anglia Property Framework
“Gold Group has been very professional and persistent in their search for our very specific needs. You have been in competition for this placement with at least two other agencies. By comparison with the others, you have sent me the best C.Vs, i.e. the most appropriate, has followed up my instructions promptly and courteously and succeeded, primarily in finding a suitable applicant in Richard Fourie. Gold Group is also the only company who has had the foresight to set up a meeting at our offices and make personal contact with me and see the conditions in placing recruits. All of this I think speaks volumes for Gold Group's personal attention to clients. Keep up the good work.”
