Our reputation for sourcing qualified, skilled professionals that accurately fit your requirements is second to none so we really get to know all our extremely talented candidates before we place them.

Finding the right candidate is time consuming and difficult. Especially if you’re trawling the many job boards, databases and candidate lists. At Graham Rose it’s our job to make the important task of finding the right candidate as easy and stress free as possible for you.

Our rigorous selection and screening process guarantees selected candidates will closely match the position needing to be filled. We take pride in matching the best talent to the role available.

Each and every applicant will undergo a structured interview covering skills, qualifications, work history and career preferences.

Detailed written and where possible, verbal references, will be obtained. Then our specialist consultants will fully brief the candidates to give them a detailed understanding of the position as well as any career development opportunities.

We also offer a range of recruitment options that include Advertised Campaigns, Managed Campaigns for volume recruitment and Retained Assignments for Executive and Management positions.


The recession may not be quite over but we’re definitely seeing signs of recovery. As ever in a recovery period there is an increasing demand for contract or freelance staff.

Because we know the industry inside out we are in a position to deliver the best contract or fixed term staffing solutions to suit you. Whether that’s for short or long-term needs or temporary skills shortages.

Even if the position is a temporary one we’ll work just as hard to fill it. No fobbing you off with second best. Because we have detailed knowledge of all our candidates we can get the right people to you very quickly with the required references and skills.

References are crucial as contractors often have to undertake roles without supervision. We’ll ensure we supply at least two detailed verbal references from previous line managers along with copies of relevant qualifications that we hold on file.

We consider our candidates as part of the Graham Rose family and we like to use people we’ve worked with in the past.


In this business it’s all about who you know. Because the Graham Rose team has more experience than you can shake a stick at, especially in effective face-to-face networking, we know a lot of people.

The success of any organisation or project rests on getting the right management in place. All our candidates have to become part of our team before we recommend them to be part of your team. This means any potential candidate we put forward has the values, personality, skills and aptitude to help drive your organisation forward.

Contact us for advice, information or a confidential chat and we’ll be more than happy to discuss how Graham Rose can help.
