Are you looking to Recruit an HR Professional?Read what our clients say
Subsequently as a client (in the job that Paul had found for me), I was refreshed by his personal (and personable) approach to meeting my recruitment needs.
I would definitely recommend Grafton Haymes to both candidate and any employer seeking a HR professional.
Nathaniel Lichfield & Partners
I have had the pleasure of working with Paul for the last 8 years and always value his upmost professionalism, wealth of expertise and affable approach. Paul will be the first person I think of when seeking counsel and/or assistance in sourcing HR professionals.
Global Head of HR
Braemar AMC Shipping
We have always found Grafton Haymes to be professional and efficient and to provide honest opinion to help guide us on choices of candidate and to carefully manage our expectations.
Previously Head of HR
Gordon Ramsay Holdings
From our first conversation, to my first day at work, Christine was supportive, knowledgeable and utterly reliable. She took the time to understand the type of role I was looking for, found an appropriate vacancy and gave sound advice on the role and company throughout the recruitment process.
Learning & Development Specialist
The whole experience was really positive as Grafton Haymes were so good at keeping in touch and keeping me up to date as and when she heard anything. I also really appreciated how flexible they were, in coming all the way out to see me where I used to work, to explain the role in person, and also ringing me in the evening (in the initial stages) so I didn’t have to worry about hiding in a meeting room to take the call away from my colleagues during working hours! I was so apprehensive about making the right move, but Grafton Haymes really helped by explaining any concerns I had to the client which we were able to sort out. I really love the role I do now and the commute is so much easier, so thank you for helping me to make the right move.
Argenta Holdings Ltd
Paul Grafton helped us to find not one, but three, first-class Trainers who are currently delivering a Management Development Programme they wrote themselves. The reason I manage this team of top Trainers is because Paul recruited me into my position too!
Previously HR Organisational Development Manager
Southend University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust
Grafton Haymes supported me through the recruitment process for obtaining my first new role in nine years. They were able to understand the industry demands and specifics of both the role and company they were recruiting for as well as my experience and career aims as a candidate.
Saipem UK Ltd
Through working with Paul over several projects, he has been able to reflect individual facets of the team in the selection criteria for new members, supporting the development of a well rounded and effective team.
Previously Head of Resourcing and Organisational Development
Southend University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust
When I went to Paul as a candidate, he was honest, realistic and supportive providing sound advice on viable career options and an accurate picture of the HR market.
Previously HR Director
Grafton Haymes are without a doubt one of the best recruitment consultancy firms I have had the pleasure of working with to date. They recommended me for a Payroll Assistant role and were positively proactive throughout the recruitment process. I found this to be extremely useful in helping me to ultimately secure the position. I would recommend Grafton Haymes to everyone.
Unlike a lot of mainstream agencies, Grafton Haymes demonstrated a high degree of integrity. They weren’t just interested in placing someone, but genuinely interested in ensuring, that the ‘fit’ was a perfect one. Grafton Haymes fully understood her brief and set expectations at the beginning of all our conversations.
Previously HR Manager
Many thanks for your personalised and thoughtful candidate selection. It was clear that you had invested the time to really understand our requirements.
Nathaniel Lichfield & Partners
Paul was invaluable to me in securing my new role. He was pro-active, professional and knew the market I wanted to enter whilst being friendly and approachable – a perfect person to guide me through my move in-house.
Employment Law Consultant
During the years Grafton Haymes have proactively kept in touch with me and when I was looking for a new role, listened to my interests and needs, and gave advice on what was possible and where compromises may need to be made in the job search.
L&D Consultant & Coach
I have valued my relationship with Grafton Haymes in the capacity of both client and candidate over many years. They have a deep knowledge of the recruitment market and works with integrity to match candidate to both job role and organisational culture.
“Thank you so much for everything, I’ve really enjoyed working with you. Such a refreshing change from the huge recruitment factories that don’t treat anyone as an individual! If any of my HR friends mention that they are on the lookout for their next role, I will certainly refer them to you.”
I just wanted to say a big thank you for all your support. There are many out there who call themselves consultants/associates – but they wouldn’t make you a decent shadow! And I intend to be very vocal about Christine McCorry whenever the situation arises.
HRD Partner, Learning & Development
Rail Safety & Security Board
Paul is an excellent Consultant and PA have used him several times to help recruit for their HR Manager roles. He listens to what we want, and understands our culture and as a result we’ve recruited three HR Managers through him.
“I just wanted to take the opportunity to tell you, that during my job search, you have been the most professional and respectful recruiter I have worked with. I am very grateful and look forward to working with you on any future opportunities that arise.”
Grafton Haymes are truly professional and experts in their field. They are extremely prompt and courteous in making regular updates and giving feedback. They pay attention to both the small details and the bigger picture.
UK HR Manager
Paul Grafton’s knowledge of the industry, the people and the environment is second to none; he is professional, supportive and showed a high level of integrity, providing honest, well balanced advice and feedback every step of the way.
Previously International Learning & Development Specialist
They treat their candidates with respect, stay in regular contact and cares about making sure that they find the right opportunity. Their support during my job search was genuinely “consultative” and we have stayed in contact through a number of job changes.
