MAKING THE DIFFERENCE
Recruitment to recruitment specialists
Gillespie People Solutions use our experience, our insight, our integrity and our passion for the industry to support and provide specialist recruitment businesses with the skilled people you need to build your own business success.
We do this by building relationships – with candidates and clients - and in constantly striving to understand what makes you different and the key challenges your business faces each and every day.
When we commit, we engage wholeheartedly, whether it’s a one-off project, or working to develop and implement a longer-term recruitment strategy. We're passionate about our industry and about helping our clients and our candidates in acheiving success. It all begins with a conversation. So, lets get started.
We are focussed on career navigation and working together with both our clients and candidates to deliver a recruitment service which truly exceeds expectations.
Finding that key person that could really make a difference to your recruitment business isn’t easy. It takes time and contacts. Thankfully, we’ve got both.
I have been working with Hazel and Caron for some time now and find them both to be a pleasure to deal with; Honest, pleasant, helpful and very understanding of the type of recruiters we look for at Head Medical. We have hired four Recruiters in the last six months from Gillespie People Solutions and they are all fantastic and doing really well in their roles here. I would definitely recommend Hazel and Caron as recruiters who understand their market, have great networks, go the extra mile to find people, are always ethical, honest and straightforward, and only provide quality and committed candidates to us for consideration.
I had the pleasure of working with Caron Kinnaird and Hazel Gillespie at Gillespie people solutions. As a company they were extremely professional and very helpful in my search for a new role in recruitment. Working primarily with Caron I always felt that I was kept updated regularly with any developments. There was always an open line of communication. Caron listened carefully to what I was looking for and presented appropriate roles to suit my circumstances. I am currently in a fantastic new role helped enormously by the hard work and time that Caron and the team put in. I would certainly work with them again and would strongly recommend anyone who is looking to move recruitment roles to contact them.
Hazel Gillespie made my career move very simple, she has a very good market knowledge and understands the match at all levels. Each opportunity was qualified with great detail. I am now very content in a position that I wouldn’t have found without her help. Throughout the process she kept me “up to speed. A great company to deal with.
When I spoke to both Hazel and Caron at Gillespie’s, it was clear from the start that they were looking out for my best interests, not just a placement fee. By listening intently to my requirements and asking the right questions in order to get to know more about the person rather than the CV, they identified the ideal position based on my specifications and assisted me through each stage of my interview processes. Conversations always felt warm and genuine and should you ever find yourself looking for a change then I would highly recommend seeing what Gillespie People Solutions could do for you.
Hazel made my recent job search experience a pleasure, taking the time to really work out what sort of company would best suit me, presenting me with a carefully thought out shortlist, and then supporting my decisions rather than pushing. She is an outstanding rec to rec with an encyclopaedic knowledge of her market and I am happy to recommend her.
Think Global Recruitment is expanding and as a result, we rely on Gillespie People Solutions to assist us, by working with us on internal recruitment, to drive our business forward. We have been working with Hazel and Caron from Gillespie People Solutions since March 2015 and made a number of hires via the firm since. They have taken the time to get to know our organisation and what works for us and identify very good profiles. I particularly like the way that they do not inundate us with people who are not relevant and always ensure their candidates are motivated to join us before submitting them. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Gillespie People Solutions to anyone looking for a decent Rec to Rec agency.
We approached GPS to help us with recruitment of Consultants and/or Trainees in 2 of our locations where we were looking for growth. After an in depth meeting with Caron I was confident she had a good idea of what we were looking for. Straight away Caron started to meet potential Consultants for us and I was delighted that she was meeting the candidates face to face. Caron would then call me and talk to me about the candidate prior to sending the CV which was great as she was really getting to know the candidates, their drivers and whether or not they would be right for us. We have since made 3 offers, all of which have been accepted and I'm delighted with all candidates. Should I need to add to my headcount in the future I would definitely engage GPS as I genuinely believe Caron was only able to make these placements because she took the time to fully understand our business and requirements.
We have engaged with Gillespie People Solutions for a number of years now as we have grown our business. MBN Solutions are a unique organisation, and we look for our partners to understand our sourcing challenges completely in order to identify and locate the very best quality candidates in a challenging market. Gillespie People Solutions do just that, and we are delighted with the work they have done for us.
I've worked with various agencies over the years and I've never been entirely satisfied and always felt the consultants were very driven to just filling a vacancy with a body.... anyone would do. From the first consultation with Hazel and Caron, I was immediately filled with confidence that they understood our company, culture and the role (even though the boundaries weren't quite set). Candidates were vetted excellently and very professional. Someone was appointed to the role quickly and on signing the contract also commented about the professionalism and care he received from Caron. This is an agency like no other.
Brightwork have used GPS to help with our recruitment for our growing teams. They have taken time to understand our culture and make sure the candidates fit every time.
