Development Consultant

Louise is the best at what she does and stands out in her industry by a mile. Whether you’re looking to move, hire or you simply want some honest advice about the market I would recommend her without hesitation. An all round lovely person who genuinely cares about her candidates - I hope to stay in touch for the rest of my career in recruitment.

Insurance Recruiter

I dealt with Louise as a candidate at the end of 2017 and found her to be open, honest and communicative throughout all of our dealings. Louise took care to find out what my needs were in great detail, and only recommended roles that were in line with my requirements. The advice provided with Louise in regards to markets that I was not familiar with was invaluable. I really feel as though Louise has the best interests of her candidates at heart and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to engage with a knowledgeable and honest Rec2Rec consultant.


Business Development Director

Cheryl has been an absolutely integral part of my job move and a fantastic support throughout! I was looking to achieve two main objectives; move to London and move away from a conventional billing role. Both were big asks but Cheryl didn't shy away from the challenge and quickly got things moving for me. Within a couple of weeks, I had an offer with a great company in a role that I felt would really challenge me and keep me engaged! I honestly can't recommend Cheryl enough on both a personal and professional level she has just been wonderful.

Accounting and Finance Recruiter
Louise is one of the best consultants let alone rec2rec's I have had the pleasure of working with. She took time getting to know me as a person to understand my strengths and weaknesses before coming up with a tailored list of suitable firms rather than sending me out to interview anywhere and everywhere. Importantly she did the simple things well and has found me my perfect workplace. I cannot recommend Louise highly enough.
A&F Recruiter

Louise is somebody I cannot recommend highly enough to anyone looking for a rec2rec they can trust. Her friendly, gentle approach makes Louise an absolute pleasure to work with. She has always been happy to take time out and give me free, impartial advice whenever I need it, and has helped me enormously throughout my career.

A&F Recruiter

Louise is comfortably the best R2R consultant out there. If you are in recruitment and looking use her. She will find what you are looking for.



"The Go-To R2R!  When I decided to move to London, not having worked in recruitment there, I approached Cheryl for help and advice.  Cheryl is the most thorough, professional R2R I have ever met.  She knows her clients inside out, the culture, how they operate, the leadership team; her knowledge and experience is unmatched.  Cheryl presented me with various options and took the time to really get to know me. She guided me throughout the whole process and without her, it would have taken me a lot longer to find the perfect role.  Cheryl is the go-to R2R."

Consultant - Education

I am writing this with reference to Cheryl Wing and GSR2R

I have been in recruitment for the better part of 10 years but made a naïve decision to make a career change that didn’t work out as I had hoped. After six months out of recruitment I realised that I had made a mistake and wanted to find another recruitment position but I found this to be very difficult. I attended several interviews that I arranged myself but was turned down each time which really knocked my confidence

I decided to register with a Rec to Rec and Cheryl at GSR2R came to mind immediately. I had not spoken with Cheryl before but I knew about her and that she had a great reputation within the Recruitment Industry.

When I met with Cheryl, she immediately instilled me with renewed confidence and it was evident that she was a master in her field and excellent at her job.

What was most impressive was how thorough Cheryl was when finding out about my previous experience and what my strengths were.  As I was looking to change my area of recruitment she made sure that she found options for me that played to my strengths and previous experience.

Cheryl came up with several well thought out options for me and I was out for interviews just days after registering. Cheryl made sure that I was well prepared for each interview and would always make herself available to speak to me, sometimes late at night.

Within two weeks there was considerable interest in my CV and I was made a great offer by my first choice of employer which I gladly accepted.

I can’t recommend Cheryl and GSR2R strongly enough both for recruiters looking for new career opportunities and for businesses looking to take on quality staff

Education Recruiter

"I have known Cheryl for over 15 years and have used her services throughout this time. When looking for work she is always my first call and she really understands what I am looking for and the type of organisation that will be a good fit. She is very supportive throughout the interviewing process and provides honest feedback and advice. I highly recommend Cheryl."

Fashion & Retail Recruitment

Cheryl is, in my experience the most exceptional Rec to Rec consultant in London. From the moment you meet Cheryl she brings a smile to your face as her warm demeanour and boundless energy is contagious! She instills confidence immediately with her in depth market knowledge and obvious understanding of the market place.
Cheryl is dedicated, focussed and highly ethical. I can not recommend her enough and having placed me in my new job I can not thank her enough. Her after care contact is fantastic and she has been incredibly supportive throughout the process.

Associate Director

We recently instructed Louise on a very critical hire for the business and an extremely tough brief to join us in Hertfordshire on the Finance side.Louise had a great approach, talked me through a brilliant candidate and an offer was made very quickly and looks like we have secured an exceptional hire for the business.

Client, Accounting and Finance
Central London

Having had the pleasure of working with Louise I found her process to be extremely helpful from interview tips to finding the right company. Louise is extremely credible and will always be my first point of contact within the Rec2Rec space.

Miles, Recruiter
Temp support

I honestly cannot recommend working with Cheryl and the GSR2R team highly enough. Rec to Rec’s generally have a bad reputation in the market but I can safely say Cheryl and Imogen have been the most professional, friendly and flexible people I have dealt with.   Cheryl truly consulted me throughout the process; from our first meeting to offer stage and has been the most fantastic listener. Having started with my dream firm, Cheryl and Imogen are still checking all is going well and their commitment and care has been second-to-none. Thank you a million times over!   

Lille referral winner

“I cannot express to you how happy I am to have won the GSR2R referral scheme!!! Not only have my friend and my son obtained wonderful recruitment jobs through Cheryl and her team but I get to go to Lille with my partner and stay in a fabulous hotel.
Merci Beaucoup GSR2R!!!”

Veronica Wint

" Louise is one of those rare Rec2Recs that loves what she does and it is clearly visible in her work. I honestly cannot say anything about her that’s negative. She’s honest, down to earth and completely understanding when it comes to helping you with your job search. Throughout the entire process she has updated me on her progress, given me feedback and told me of her intentions. Even upon our first meeting she got to grips with my situation, what I wanted and the way and what the best course of action would be for me.

I will continue to work with GSR2R and Louise as I know that I am always going to be in safe and understanding hands. "


Accounting and Finance into Media

"Cheryl is a truly amazing consultant. I reached out to Cheryl having read her LinkedIn profile, and was astounded by the fact everything she says in her summary is true, if not a little modest! Cheryl is one of the best recruiters I have ever worked with, and I could write an essay on her brilliance! She was more than a consultant, and felt like a career coach and friend. I felt reassured throughout my whole search, knowing I had her advice, guidance and support. To say Cheryl goes above and beyond would not be strong enough! A truly exceptional, unique recruiter, it would be impossible to find better! Thank you so much for everything Cheryl!"


"Mike managed to secure me 5 interviews in under 24 hours.  I think this statement speaks for itself.  An excellent Rec-to-Rec agent who knows his market, knows his capabilities and knows his clients - this is Mike. Working with Mike has been a pleasure and I couldn’t have asked for better support from start to finish. Listening to what I wanted, giving me the best options and above all managing the overall process of job transition were impeccable. I am sure the best recruiters will cross Mike’s path and I am more than positive they will be given career opportunities they just can't say no to!"

Cheers Mike!

Senior Consultant
Secretarial Recruitment

"Cheryl is a master of rec2rec! Renowned for professionalism, amazing networks and always takes considerable time to understand a consultant's needs. I would highly recommend GSR2R to any London recruiter."

Mike Tulley

"Mike was a great help when I was looking for my next role within the Construction Recruitment industry. He took the time to listen to what I wanted and with the relationships and understanding of his clients he was able to help me get the job I wanted. It was a pleasure to work with him and would happily recommend anyone who is looking to for their next role to get in contact with Mike."

Recruitment Consultant

"I would highly recommend Mike as one of the best Rec to Rec Consultant’s in the market today. I first heard about Mike a couple of years ago from a number of friends and past colleagues who had used him. The feedback I received was very positive, not only did he place them in great ambitious companies, but they are all very happy and thriving as a result.

I approached Mike in August 2015 when I made the decision to progress my career in recruitment. He was very understanding of what I was looking to achieve and what my push buttons were. He quickly advised me on numerous companies he felt I would be suited to and as a result set up numerous interviews to accommodate me. He kept in constant contact throughout and was on hand to help with any questions I had. He shared valuable interview hints and tips with me from his extensive knowledge of the industry.

I started with my new company mid September and am extremely happy as a result. Mike is still in constant communication and is interested in how things are going and is always on hand to help.

Excellent service, highly recommend."

Senior Consultant

"Mike and GSR2R were extremely professional throughout the entire process and really understood my motivations in making the next move in my recruitment career from the initial meeting. Throughout the entire process Mike was there providing vital preparation in giving his years of industry experience and providing his own thoughts on the right company/fit for me. I can certainly say now that the experience that Mike and GSR2R have will certainly result in finding the right company for you."

Senior Consultant

I would massively recommend GSR2R as they have helped me through a tough time that I was experiencing. Listened to everything I wanted in a role and came back to me with multiple opportunities that were ideal.
I am currently 5 months into my new role and couldn't be any happier!
A massive thank you to Mike Kennedy for all your hard work!

Senior Consultant
Construction & Property

I approached Mike and enlisted him with the task of finding a suitable role that ticked all of my boxes.
I was looking for a progressive role where I could have a major impact on the business at the same time as keeping a sensible work/life balance. Mike took the time to get to know me and understand me and because I ruled out venturing into London, Mike had to proactively source relevant roles for me on the South Coast. It only took him a few days to come back with some options and line up interviews... the rest is history.

Mike maintained contact throughout the whole process. Even though I have 10 years industry experience myself his input was invaluable. No doubt in the future I will enlist Mike with the task of building my team.

Mike knows his marketplace and has excellent insights into his clients businesses and their suitability to each individual candidate. A trusted Rec2Rec.

Principal Consultant
Audit & Finance Recruiter

"Louise is a nice lady and a great rec2rec.
She invested good time to meet with me and discuss my career needs. Within a short space she was able to line up several interviews giving me a good choice of work options, securing me my current role.
I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a career in recruitment as she is knowledgeable, connected and ethical to work with. "

Accounting & Finance Recruiter

"Louise is an absolute pleasure to work with. She is honest, genuine and hard working. Therefore she has great clients and will give you a genuine understanding of businesses she recruits for.

"I reached out to GSR2R when I was looking for a new role in recruitment; my main point of contact was Louise. Unlike most rec2rec consultants I've met, Louise genuinely took the time to listen to what I was looking for and, within a matter of days, she managed to set up several interviews with some very impressive companies, including my current employer. Louise was extremely efficient in being able to guide me through the process in great detail, including assisting me with my interview preparation. For anyone looking to make an all-important career move in Finance Recruitment, Louise is the rec2rec to go to!”


Recruitment Consultant – Asset Management

"Cheryl is great! She’s professional and friendly and took time to get to know and understand me. She then presented me with some interesting roles and companies which suited my experience and interests. In the end I decided to hold off on changing jobs, however I won’t hesitate to recommend Cheryl to anyone in the recruitment industry looking for a move. She will also be the first and only consultant I contact again in the future."

Recruitment Consultant

"Louise is a pleasure to work with and provides a tailored and honest approach to the search process. This allows the process to run smoothly and efficiently. I highly recommend working with Louise for a consultant looking to move into the financial recruitment space and GSR2R as a company for the fantastic service they provide to candidates and clients."

Jake C

I can gush more if neccessary....

I was laid off, completely out of the blue by the recruitment company I had spent over ten and a half years with.  I was completely in shock and felt like I'd been kicked in the stomach, my confidence was at an all time low. Having known Cheryl for over 15 years, it was no surprise that she was the first call I made.  She instantly put me at ease, invited me in for a lenghty chat the very next day and reassured me that there was light at the end of the tunnel.  Within a few days, Cheryl had set up some really good interviews for me, all with Companies that suited me personally and with roles that really interested me.  I am happy to say that yesterday I accepted a great offer from my first choice and I start in a fortnight.  Not only did Cheryl set up the interviews and gave me lots of advice and information before the interviews, she fully de-briefed me after and gave me tips on how to improve my interview skills.

Before Cheryl had even told me about the offer,  she had negotiated a great package for me and an added bonus of some flexibility as I am a mother of two.  Cheryl placed me in my last company where I worked for over a decade.  The company I am now working with is such a great fit, I am hopeful that this will be another long term role for me.  I did contact three other rec to rec companies that, quite frankly, were dreadful.  Two didn't even get back to me (despite having over 17 years solid experience within the industry) and one was more interested in finding out where GSR2R were sending me so they could nick Clients, rather than supporting me in my job search.
I cannot recommend Cheryl and her team enough. They are warm, friendly, supportive and personable.  They really get to know you and what you want and this really shows in the companies that you are introduced to.  The knowledge that Cheryl has about her Clients is second to none and she gets the match right every time.
After being knocked down, I have my confidence and self belief back and am looking forward to starting my new career with a great company, all thanks to Cheryl.  I cannot thank GSR2R enough!


Education Consultant

"Cheryl restored my faith in Rec to Rec from the word go!  She was very professional, honest and upfront from the beginning and had me an interview lined up within days.  Cheryl is the first and only Rec to Rec to ever have listened to what I was looking for in my next career move and what was important to me in a company.  She kept in regular contact throughout the whole process and made sure I was fully prepared for my interview.  I would highly recommend her to any consultant looking for their next move in recruitment."

Specialist Recruiter - Asset Management & Property Services

"Louise was the consultant who initiated the process which ultimately led to me finding my dream position.

She was always always on hand to provide support and advice and although we saw it best for me to focus on another industry she still remained in contact and made sure that I got the support needed to find my ideal role.

I can not recommend her enough, she is a true professional and supports you through every step of the process."

Accountancy and Finance

"Cheryl is one of the best Rec2Recs I have had the pleasure of working with. She listened to my expectations, talked over a few companies out of which I was only interested in one, which she also favoured. Cheryl is extremely thorough and is great at finding consultants their ideal next role. I would happily recommend Cheryl to anyone who is looking!"

Charity Recruitment

"Thank you so so much Cheryl, I was a broken woman when I got in touch with you and you have boosted my confidence and got me a brilliant job - once again.

 I've just put some bubbly on ice - I am chuffed to bits!"


"Nice to hear from you. I'm doing really well thanks, I have smashed all my targets set and am earning decent commission at last. 

Couldn't be happier, I love my office/team. 

Thanks again for placing me."

Construction Consultant

"I approached Mike early this year after I had moved to a new firm in January which unfortunately didn't work out and sought for Mike's help.

I found Mike to be an expert in finding the right role at the right time for me. Matching my skill set and personality to fit the right culture. Therefore my only recommendation would be go to Mike and his team of experts. Again, thank you Mike.
All the very best for the future."


"Sarah was a great consultant to deal with as it can be very hard trying to please other consultants. She understood what I was looking for and presented me with some great companies to interview with and secured me a great opportunity with Preferred Choice. I can highly recommend her as she actually listens to what you are looking for."

Recruitment Consultant, Civil Engineering

"Mike helped me secure my current role; he has an excellent reputation within the Rec2Rec industry and took into account everything I was looking for to develop my career and I've never been happier! I highly recommend Mike; he is very approachable and frankly I'd never use anyone else! "

Legal Consultant and Client

"I have known Cheryl since 2002, but had, until recently, never used her services as a candidate. I have to say how impressed I am with her and GSR2R. Cheryl was very thorough and professional throughout the entire process, provided excellent inside knowledge of the hiring firm and was nothing but supportive during the final stage negotiations. Highly recommended."

Constrution Recruitment Consultant

"Mike Kennedy at GSR2R is an amazing recruiter to deal with, he took the time to find out exactly what my needs were for my next role and set me up with a wide selection of interviews all relevant to my needs, I was really impressed with the clients he put me forward to. He kept me fully informed throughout the process, offered excellent interview advice and was very professional and friendly. He placed me in my current role with an amazing company and I can’t thank him enough. I highly recommend Mike and GSR2R if you are looking for your next role in recruitment."

HR Consultant

"Cheryl was fantastic to work with. She is highly knowledgable about the HR market where crucially, personality fit and culture are all important. She convinced me to consider a change of sector from finance and within a very short space of time secured me a role with a superb organisation that have exceeded my expectations. She was in constant communication and the service I received from GSR2R was second to none. I would strongly recommend using Cheryl from both a candidate and client perspective."

FM Support Services

"I take great pleasure in recommending Mike Kennedy as a highly credible Recruitment to Recruitment specialist. He approached me through a trusted contact and made the successful introduction to my current company. He took the time to understand my requirements and aspirations and matched these to the role I currently hold. I have been in this role for nearly 12 months now and have never been happier. The company proved to be all that Mike said they would be.

I have no hesitation in recommending him to any recruitment professional that is looking for genuine consultative support."

Education Consultant

"Cheryl looked after me from day one at our meeting in Waterloo, listening to my requirements and not just wanting to place me in any job but something that I genuinely wanted to do. The contact was kept throughout the whole process and even up till now 2 months in still checking up to make sure I am happy, settled and enjoying my job. I feel with cheryl she genuinely cares as a person about your career and to make sure it is what you want to do. I have been with my new company for 2 months and can honestly say I love my job and  I am so happy I made the move and listened to Cheryl. She clearly knows what she is talking about  but as well on a personal level makes you feel comfortable and at ease.
Thanks for finding me a job that I love!"

Production and Technical Account Manager

"Mike helped me to get the RIGHT job for me. We met and spoke in detail of my skills and experience and discussed the right companies that are suitable for me. His knowledge of the market and his calm approach really helped ease my nerves and made me a lot less anxious. Within 2 day I had over 5 interviews lined up with leading construction recruitment firms.

He helped me through the interview stage sending me as much infrmationo and talking through who I will be meeting at each stage.

Needless to say I have found a new role and I couldn't be happier. He has stayed in contact with me throughout and continues to give me feedback from my current employers!!
I would recommend Mike to anyone that is looking for a new recruitment opportunity and once again thank you very much mate!!"

I'm super excited and can't wait to start and be a success ;-)

Thank you Cheryl for all your help.  You've been amazing.  You really understand my needs and put me forward to the right agencies that fit me best.  You really do get it and that's something you can't be trained at.  No wonder you are a success and have been going for the time you have. 

I will highly recommend you to all my recruitment friends.

Media Consultant
Temp Controller, Secretarial

It’s rare to find a Rec 2 Rec that firstly actually meets you and secondly that sits down with you, understands and achieves your career goals and aspirations.

My initial contact was with Louise Coxon.  Knowledgeable, friendly, helpful.  I was dubious at first to go with another rec to rec as I have had a few experiences some good some bad.  On this occasion I wasn’t quite the right fit for the roles Louise was recruiting for.  My experience would tell me that that’s the end of that conversation, but no!  Louise referred me to another great, friendly and knowledgeable consultant Cheryl Wing (director of GSR2R)!


This is where the second part of my journey began……..


I met with Cheryl and totally put my trust in her from the minute I sat down.  An empathetic and understanding approach to my situation.  We mutually agreed my next role had to be right one and discussed the A to Z of my future and what it will look in the companies moving forward.

I would firstly like to mention this was not a gimmick to make a quick fee for the company it was literally as genuine as genuine can get! I have been sent on so many interviews in the past, but this time it was different. Much different.

Cheryl was personable and used a professional approach. We had 4 interviews across a couple of weeks.  All interviews were tailored around my schedule and working day.  All of which I had been prepped and had relevant company knowledge to excel in the interviews.  All interviews were in the same remit (office support) with a culture that would marry myself and the companies.  This just shows that my experience was noted and that GSR2R have a duty of care to both their clients and candidates.

Although Cheryl is a very busy individual, responding to me was not 4 hours later it was literally up to 30 minutes tops or acknowledgement of when best to speak mutually.  Each time you call the office the professionalism and standard was outstanding.  To hear a chirpy and cheerful "Good morning/Good afternoon GSR2R" instantly makes you feel welcome and further more if the person you need to speak to is not available the team will do their best to help or have your consultant respond asap. GREAT SERVICE!

I would recommend any recruiters looking to change to get in touch with the team, your career will be looked after in a professional and consultative manner.

Insurance Recruitment Consultant

"I recently had the pleasure of working with Louise during a continuous interview process of which she was instrumental in me achieving my appointment with a leading International recruiter. I was thoroughly impressed with Louise’s energy and dedication and I would have no hesitation in recommending her strong recruitment to recruitment capabilities."

Jamie France
Upfront & Personnel

Following a well-structured sales call, Mark took the time to visit our Head Office based in Southampton.  From the start he was at all times professional and clearly invested in ensuring he had an in-depth understanding of our ‘niche’ sales delivery to the ‘New Home Developer’ sector.

Having taken a detailed brief he re-qualified the urgency of the position, re-visited key aspects of the role and set a clear agenda moving forward.

We never felt at any stage of our integration with Mark that our time was wasted. Of the three candidates presented to me directly, we have hired what I believe to be a high quality candidate that has clearly met all of our search criteria.

It has been refreshing to work with such a detailed and professional recruiter and I have no hesitation in recommending Mark.

Eamonn, Recruitment Director

"I highly recommend Cheryl who has recently helped me to find my current role. She is professional, approachable and a specialist in her sector. Cheryl has a unique style of recruitment and gave me so many different options that  helped me to make the right decision. She has great clients and an outstanding reputation with them. Cheryl and her specialist, professional and friendly team are the best recruitment agency I have worked with."

Negah, Recruitment Consultant Charity

"I was finding it tough gaining the right role when I was looking at the end of last year, but Louise took the time to assist me, look at what was important to me and setup some strong interviews with good companies within the Accountancy recruitment market.
I am very happy in my new role, and it really shows how finding the right culture fit is really important.
I would highly recommend Louise if you were looking for a new role in financial recruitment."

Kris - Interim Accountancy and Finance Recruiter

After deciding to start my search in December 2013 for a new role I had a number of consultants contact me however after speaking with Louise I felt extremely confident that placing my trust in her would prove to be extremely rewarding. Louise managed to secure me a role in the space of 10 days which allowed me to have a relaxed Christmas knowing that come January 2014 I would have a fantastic new role to get stuck in too. Personally I could not recommend Louise highly enough, If you are looking to secure your next move then look no further than Louise Coxon. Fantastic consultant and first class communication skills.

Tom, Transactional Finance Consultant

After passing Mike a referral he personally dropped off the IPad, Vouchers and cash after the 3 month probation period as promised! This was a welcome bonus for the start of the new year and I will happily refer many more candidates to Mike and GSR2R as they offer great referral gifts and promptly deliver!

Construction Consultant
Property Consulatant

I was lucky enough to have been represented by Mike in successfully finding a new role. Mike was always efficient, informative and very professional throughout the process. Mike laid out options and offered advice based on my wants and needs removing stress from the procedure. I would highly recommend Mikes services.

Rob Johnston
Construction Recruitment Consultant

I was lucky enough to be represented by Mike earlier this year. He was fantastic in all aspects of his role, offering me support and advice throughout the recruitment process and most importantly he delivered on everything he said he would and at no stage over promised and under delivered. I have no hesitation what so ever in recommending Mike to any recruiter looking for their next career move or if you are a hiring manager looking to grow your team.

Propery Consultant

Over the past 10 years, Mike at GSR2R has assisted me twice in securing new roles, both in the UK and overseas. Mike has always worked hard to understand my motives and personality in order to ensure the right move both culturally and for my career progression. He has very strong client relationships and is well known in the industry. Mike is a professional who you can trust and I would not hesitate in recommending him to anybody who is looking for a new role in Recruitment.


GSR2R is the only recruitment to recruitment company I use; Cheryl the founder is personable, professional and honest. She goes out of her way to seek out candidates for me that fit our company culture and that go on to stay with us long term. Most importantly, she always operates with absolute integrity.

I couldn’t recommend her more highly from a candidate or a clients perspective.

Chevy, Compensation, Benefits and Rewards Consultant

Let’s face it, being a recruitment consultant isn’t rocket science! However, there are a lot out there that make this role tough for themselves, by offering a service that just doesn’t adhere with good customer service, common manners, persistence and commitment.

Louise stands out when it comes to all of these, and I truly felt she was on my team when searching for a new role.  Louise provided consistent lines of communication, consistent plans of action, consistent ideas, consistent energy and just generally a consistent service that does what it says on the tin.  Louise acted as a consultant to help me secure my role and I cannot recommend her enough.

Digital Client

Hey Sarah,  Just thought you should know, your recent placement with us is an absolute machine – best placement you have made here – she is exceptional.  One of the best natural recruiters I have met.  Brilliant.

You guys really have been head and shoulders above the other R2R's.

A quick note to say we are delighted that ... will be joining us!  And we are really pleased with all of the work that Sarah and GSR2R have done.


Let's hope that this is the first of many hires with us!


Since you guys placed me I've been doing really well, so thanks to you (Cheryl) and Mike for finding me the right job :)


Just a quick email to say thank you for all your help in securing my next career move, I couldn't have asked for a more professional service from you and GSR2R. I am very impressed with the attention to detail and only offering me roles that suited my wants and needs. I will of course keep in touch and look forward to working with you again in the future for my new company's recruitment needs.


Thank you so much for your support in finding my new role of Global Resourcing Manager.

Without a doubt you're the best recruiter I've worked with.

I'll be in touch to plan and catch up for celebratory lunch drinks.

Thanks again.


Thanks for the lovely message, enroute to a surprise engagement party!! Will keep in touch via linkedin you never know when I might be back and I might have a candidate referral for you at some point I'm sure!!! Thank you so much for all of your help, by far you were the most professional and dedicated recruiter I have dealt with, very impressed by the fact you never gave up even when it looked like you really couldn't help me any further. Have a wonderful Easter & enjoy the break you deserve it!!!!


"Sarah is literally THE only rec to rec I would recommend to anyone...I worked with a few recruiters when I was looking for my next move and she was the only one that stood out.  Everyone else didn't seem to listen to what I wanted out of my move, and kept putting me in touch with the same types of companies.  Sarah understood what I loved about my job and that I had a real interest in the digital market, and managed to get me in front of some really good people.  I had all the details I needed about these companies, mainly from her deep understanding about them and what they needed, ensuring I was matched the right company.  I definitely made the right choice with Digital Gurus, and can't thank her enough! She also got me a G&T to celebrate.. perfect!"

Oil & Gas Client and Candidate

"I’ve known Mike at GSR2R for a number of years, and he has always given honest, direct and sound advice.

There are many rec to rec organisations in the market and I always turn to Mike for new staff or on the rare occasion I have been looking for myself. He represents one of the rare recruiters who will tell a client the truth, and presents it in a no nonsense way. He understands and makes an effort to understand our requirements and most importantly - delivers!"

Doctors Consultant

"Cheryl was one of the best Rec2Recs I could have been approached by. She discussed all of the possible options with me and matched me to companies brilliantly. I was out interviewing at 5 different companies and had an offer within a week! The way recruitment should be done! Her expert knowledge and Industry experience secured me a position with a great company where I can see myself having a career. I would highly recommend Cheryl’s expertise to anyone in the recruitment industry looking for a new role."

Energy Consultant

"Thanks for the call... I’ve got to say, that was possibly the best headhunt call I’ve had in months! Didn’t let me tell you to p*ss off in the first 30 seconds and stopped me in my tracks with your hook! Whilst being discreet enough and not asking question I obviously couldn't answer!"

Secretarial Consultant

"I'm absolutely loving everything about it, seriously wouldn't change a thing!"

Construction Client

"Mike Kennedy has consistently provided highly relevant candidates for our business in a tight and competitive market.  Mike has invested time to comprehensively understand the construction and engineering marketplace and the type of candidate who add value to Amida.  In all dealings with Mike he has maintained high levels of professionalism, communication and follow through to delivery.  I very much look forward to working with Mike again in the near future."

Medical Consultant

"Cheryl is undoubtedly the best rec-to-rec I have come across. She took the time to get to know me and to fully understand exactly what I wanted out of my next role. She is so lovely and personable and really took a genuine interst in finding me the perfect role to suit all my needs and goals.
She has a real skill of being able to know exactly what company will work best for you and your personaily. Cheryl kept in touch with me every day and lined me up 5 interviews with great companies and ultimatly helped me get placed at my first choice company.

I would strongly recommend cheryl as she is an absolute please to work with throughout the whole process of finding a job!"

"I came to Mike with 7 months experience looking for a new start, he listened to what I was looking for and provided me with interviews to companies that fitted me well, all in all i was in a new job within 2 weeks which I'm very happy with."

Marketing Consultant

"Sarah has been great since the beginning of my search in finding a new role. Coming from a recruitment and sales background I was looking for a new career in the social media and marketing industry and whilst this wasn't an area Sarah normally works across, it was great to hear one of her clients were looking for an in house marketing person and she thought of me. From the very start Sarah called me and briefed me on both the role and the company, keeping in regular contact to help throughout the process and gave great advice. She is fantastic at what she does and I can't recommend her high enough. Within less than a few days of contacting me about the role, Sarah got me an interview and kept in touch every step of the way. When I was offered the position at October Recruitment I couldn't stop beaming. Out of all the recruiters I had worked with in the past, Sarah by far stood out the most. Thank you Sarah!"

Property Client

"I just wanted to pass on a few words to express my thanks in finding James and your continued support in this sector when it comes to finding talent. I don’t think I have come across a more networked and knowledgeable person in the Property and Construction Rec to rec space. Passion, tenacity and candid assessment of situations has made the hiring process very straightforward. The way you have gone out to market to sell Investigo as an employer of choice has also been much appreciated. Please feel free to use my name as a reference should any other future clients be looking for endorsements. I would, without hesitation, recommend you and your business."

Digital Consultant

"I have always heard good things about GSR2R but was really impressed with the help and service Sarah provided. Sarah was really approachable, honest and nothing was too much hassle! Sarah helped me find the best agencies to meet with and offered advice every step of the way. I would recommend Sarah to any of my friends and often do."

Construction Candidate

"From the moment I contacted Mike Kennedy I knew I was in safe hands. He took the time to meet with me to fully understand my needs and experience within the world of recruitment.Through his various contacts he was able to secure a number of interviews for me which resulted in 2 offers being placed on the table. At each stage of the process I found Mike to be thorough, informative, constantly in contact and outstanding in his hard work and dedication. He prepared me for every interview and was extremely quick with the interview feedback. Mike stood out as a consultant who continually exceeds expectations."

Creative Consultant

"Sarah has been so helpful in placing me with the right company. She has such an open and honest approach and really understood where I was in my current role and where I could use the skills I had aquired over the last few years and what I would be best suited to. I would be more than happy to use Sarah again in the future for any of my recruitment needs."

Construction Client

"I have been working with Mike for many years now and he has always stood out from all other agencies I have dealt with. He takes the time to understand your business and build relationships so that when you receive applicants you know they are almost guaranteed to fit the business. This then leads to a high level of trust from both parties in managing the candidates through the process and also to a more successful conclusion. The fact that Mike specializes in our market also ensures a quality of service that sees the flow of market intelligence both ways and I have no doubt that we will continue to work together for many years to come."


"It was really lovely meeting Sarah on Wednesday, I really enjoyed the registration.  She made me feel really at ease and definitely felt that she understood my situation and predicament well."

Construction Consultant

"There are many rec to rec organisations in the market and I always turn to Mike for new staff or on the rare occasion I have been looking for myself.
