"Following an initial telephone conversation Sophie was able to find a suitable opportunity for me. The role on offer was exactly what I was looking for in terms of the job, size and type of company. I was very lucky in that the first job Grafton Banks put me forward for I was offered, I really could not have asked for anymore. I met Sophie prior to attending my interview and although there was a very short window of time Sophie kept me up to date with developments on the offer. She was able to negotiate the best deal for me and I believe my new employer in a way that both parties were very happy. From interview to job offer was less than 24 hours and in this time there were a number of questions I needed answers to. The fact the whole thing was wrapped up so quickly shows an understanding of what I was looking for and what was important to me from a new employer. I have to say that my experience with Grafton Banks was nothing but positive and I believe my new employer was also impressed with their ability to put the right candidates in front of them."

"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"

"Grafton Banks Finance were very good at listening and understanding my particular requirements. I had very limited geographic search and not once did they come with an "excellent opportunity in Crawley", (like so many others!) I needed a job in Brighton and that's what I got. They seemed to have good contacts in large and small firms. They understood what sort of roles I was looking for and did not waste my time with any other roles. There was a good level of contact and I appreciated the honesty when they were quiet and there were no roles. There was also good contact during the interview process. Grafton Banks Finance were able to deal with questions on roles and company. If they didn't have the information they were willing to find out. Alex and Nigel were both very helpful, honest and professional at all times. They provided a service that was head and shoulders above other agencies I was registered with at the time."

"Claire at Grafton Banks Finance took several opportunities to ask me a number of questions to fully understand my level of experience, and what I was hoping to achieve, and I always had the feeling she was carefully listening to my responses, and weighing up the kind of roles that would be a suitable, long-term match for me. The roles put before me were always relevant in all respects, including reflecting my existing skills and abilities, future prospects, travel, etc.
I was particularly impressed that the consultant diarised the gist of an early conversation, and accordingly proactively contacted me via social media to check on my situation, and that she took the time to email and call me at all stages of the recruitment process, including after recruitment. She also gave me plenty of quality time in our face-to-face meeting, to the extent that she actually helped to influence my decision-making.
It was clear from the start that I could rely on her to give me a considered and intelligent answer if I had any questions about the prospective employer, and also a constructive and assertive response if I did need any help with issues once the selection process was underway.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Grafton Banks Finance to both prospective practice employees, and practice owners / business owners with suitable recruitment needs."
