Various Positions Director - Fix Spec - Global Fintech Company

“Grace May was recommended to us when we were looking for a Group Manager. Sasha met with a number of people in the business and invested considerable time to understand not just the technical / professional requirements of the role, but as importantly the personality traits that would see the successful applicant thrive in our culture and environment. He provided a considered short list and managed the whole process, a challenge considering the circumstances of remote working and the absence of in person interviews. It was a tough assignment given the timescale and absence of anything like normality and yet Sasha remained resolutely upbeat and committed to deliver on our behalf. I would thoroughly recommend him and Grace May to others”

Anders Archibald CTO DC Thomson

“The best recruitment agency I have ever used! It might sound a bit gushy, but Sasha was outstanding. From the initial conversation about my situation at the time, all the way through the recruitment process and beyond, including giving me courtesy calls after a few months into the new job to see how I was getting on! I have used a number of recruitment agencies in my 20+ years of employment and none (until now) have ever really prepared me for interview in a way where I went in feeling relaxed and confident in my ability to answer any question that was asked. The attention to detail and the regular progress updates in the early part of the process also helped settle any nerves and I felt that they were actually interested in getting to know me as a person, rather than a commodity who was just there to earn them a commission. I would have no hesitation in recommending Grace May to anyone and will definitely be calling them any time I have any recruitment requirements.”
