Testimonials

  • We’ve just made a successful offer to a Divisional Manager. This role had been live for over a year and was a difficult one to fill as we couldn’t compromise on experience and culture fit. Hazel had worked tirelessly to support us with this key hire and we interviewed a number of strong people over a 6 month period.

    Each time I went back to Hazel with feedback (and no offer), she was gracious in accepting the feedback and tweaked her search based on our needs and wants. I know it can’t be tiresome recruiting for a role for such a long time ..., however, Hazel was relentless. More importantly, she was proactive. Throughout the entire recruitment process Hazel was open and kept me updated at all times which allowed me to manage the recruitment process in the most effective way from my end. A brilliant result and I can’t wait for our new colleague to join us.

  • Having been sceptical about the Rec to Rec in the past, we decided we needed some traction with securing our future talent, I was very impressed with the approach taken by the team at GPS. They felt more aligned to our own approach and recognised the talent and cultural fit for Aspen. Having taken the time to understand our business, the candidates they introduced to us understood our journey and how we operate.

    I would have no hesitation in recommending you meet GPS and discuss your business requirements. It will be a good investment of your time if you want to grow your business. As long as we still get first refusal on talent I am sure there are more to go around!

  • 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. 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 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 GPS.
