"" Madeline Greenwood
Unlike a lot of mainstream agencies, Christine demonstrated a high degree of integrity. She wasn’t just interested in placing someone, but genuinely interested in ensuring, that the ‘fit’ was a perfect one. Christine fully understood her brief and set expectations at the beginning of all our conversations.
Previously HR Manager
"" Jacqueline Beasley
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.
"" Kate Nicholls
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.

Christine is consummate professional with integrity and high level capability I have now worked with her for several years and always found her level of knowledge in her field invaluable to myself when making key strategic career decisions.

During the years she has 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.

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.

Christine supported me through the recruitment process for obtaining my first new role in nine years. She was able to understand the industry demands and specifics of both the role and company she was recruiting for as well as my experience and career aims as a candidate.

"" Paul Stone
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.

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.

I would definitely recommend Christine to both candidate and any employer seeking a HR professional.
Nathaniel Lichfield & Partners

"" Simon Hickie
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
"" Elizabeth Clayton
“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.”
"" Dave Melling
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

"" Liam Slattery
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.

"" Clair O'Brien
“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.”
"" Katie Bradford
The whole experience was really positive as Christine was so good at keeping in touch and keeping me up to date as and when she heard anything. I also really appreciated how flexible she was, 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 Christine 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 Christine for helping me to make the right move
Argenta Holdings Ltd
"" Yvette Kay
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
"" Jackie Hammond
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

Many thanks for your personalised and thoughtful candidate selection. It was clear that you had invested the time to really understand our requirements.

"" Markeida Paul
Christine is without a doubt one of the best recruitment consultants I have had the pleasure of working with to date. She recommended me for a Payroll Assistant role and was 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.
"" Lynne Cornell
I have valued my relationship with Christine in the capacity of both client and candidate over many years. She has a deep knowledge of the recruitment market and works with integrity to match candidate to both job role and organisational culture.
