“Having been in the Manufacturing Operations Management and Lead environment for twenty years, I have never met another group of individuals that truly understand the voice of the client better than TS Grale. Following a recent urgent requirement for an interim operations head at a client, Jason and Paul Were able to short-list and provide a very high calibre group of individuals who all (in different ways) matched my clients requirements. The placement has been a huge success, and I would genuinely say that TS grale will always be my first and only port of call for any type of operations management recruitment. The biggest difference for me was Jason’s understanding of the voice of the client. truly understanding the organisation, the industry and the requirement. TS Grale are clear professionals in every way.”

A role profile was defined, a timeline agreed upon and a search conducted and delivered. Overall we were delighted with the service and the strength of the shortlist provided. It was clear that they had fully understood the brief and had assessed the relevant candidates thoroughly. One of our Non-Exec Directors commented, that it was “the best shortlist he had seen”.

“I just wanted to say a personal thank you to Jason for the time you afforded me whilst looking for work. After meeting with you and taking on board your feedback, I left with a greater self-belief in myself, and also a confidence when in a one to one interview situation. It was shortly after this that I found myself in an interview and had the belief that I was the right person for the role, and was able to call upon our meeting and your pointers to good effect. I honestly believe this helped me secure the role I now have as Director for Scotland. I am hoping, in a nice way, that this means I don’t need to call on your services from a personal perspective in the future, but will be more than happy to ensure anyone who is looking for a quality executive recruitment consultant is sent in your direction.”
