What I look for in a recruitment agency are people that know my industry and have an interest in my business and want to understand its culture and aspirations, which HGA have done. They have an intimate knowledge of Construction, the businesses and the people working in it. When I need to find the right people for my company HGA are always there to help me.

HGA have always done an excellent job of recruiting for Dyer & Butler. They are not the normal run-of-the-mill recruiters. They listen to want you want and go out and find it for you without the usual sales talk that you have to listen to from most recruiters. They are professional and have excellent knowledge of construction & civil engineering markets. I would certainly recommend working with HGA if you are looking for a professional service from a company who know the sector and provide quality candidates.

Recruitment Manager, Dyer & Butler

Honest, reliable, straightforward and well considered service that brings results. A very good understanding of the industry and the needs of their clients. That's what we need and what we get!

Managing Director, Talbot Construction

I have always found HGA to be very knowledgeable and helpful when recruiting for me. They have listened to our requirements and only provided candidates that fit our needs.  The presentation of the cvs forwarded is well edited, meaning less time is spent trawling through unnecessary information. I would highly recommend their company and will continue to use them in the future.

“ We do not normally use recruitment consultants. This is partly because we have a very low staff turnover and, frankly, due to poor previous experiences. HGA were introduced to us recently, at a time when we needed to increase our numbers. Our initial reluctance to use their services was quickly dispelled. HGA took the time and trouble to gain a thorough understanding of our business, culture and personnel requirements. Their effort was reflected in the quality of candidates whom they put forward to us. It was clear that we were not simply being presented with a clutch of CV’s that happened to be on their system. The candidates who attended for interview had been well briefed, were a good match in terms our basic requirements and were well suited to the size and nature of our business. Their Consultant acted professionally throughout the process, dealing competently with the offer/acceptance process. HGA now act for us regularly and I have no hesitation in recommending them.”

 At the Austin Company we have a specific requirement for certain types of designer.

Whilst they must have relevant design experience within the fields of Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturing Industries they must also be suitable for working within a multidiscipline environment.
We have only been using the services of HGA for a short while but during that time Tony Wilcock has provided a number of CV’s which are close to meeting our requirements.
The type of candidates we look for are few and far between and Tony understands that he should not fire across every available CV on his books.
He looks closely at the candidates who are available and takes the time to match these as closely as he can to our requirements before sending any CV’s for our consideration.
As a result of this we have been successful in securing a new Mechanical Building Services designer who starts with our Company in a few weeks time.
We would certainly utilise HGA and Tony Wilcock in particular, when searching for any designers in the future.

HGA acted on my behalf in searching for a new role in the Construction Industry. They were extremely proactive and had a premier portfolio of Clients, who, despite the downturn in the economy, were able to offer a number of opportunities. Given the criteria for the role, they were able to present a realistic opportunity fitting my profile. Maintaining a close watching brief and providing good advice throughout the interview and negotiating period, both the Client and I were successful in reaching agreement and offer / acceptance was achieved. My thanks to HGA.

 I first used HGA just as the recession was beginning to bite, so there would have been many experienced Engineers and Surveyors in my position - looking for work!  Even so, I was always dealt with honestly and enthusiastically.  Their consultant demonstrated great professionalism when negotiating on my behalf and I was placed as Senior Engineer with an excellent specialist contractor in the water industry.  I would not hesitate in recommending HGA to other Engineers.

 HGA has found my last 2 positions, both with fantastic forward looking companies who invest in their staff.  They are clearly well connected with good employers and will take the time to get to know who you are and what you are looking for; thus marrying the right candidate to the right employer. The personal service made me feel as if I had known them 20 years.

HGA y provided expert advice, support and guidance when I decided to pursue a new challenge within the industry having previously only ever worked for the one main contractor throughout my entire professional career.
They took the time to understand my personality, background and long-term ambitions to enable them to source suitable contractors that fitted the profile of company and type of role that I was seeking.
Unlike many of their competitors, HGA provided regular dialogue and communication throughout the search process, and always kept me informed of which companies they were liaising with and updated me on a daily basis of any progress.   They always sought my permission before sending my CV to companies and I found their approach very open and honest.
They acted in a confidential, professional and discreet manner and produced some outstanding options in a very limited timescale which I set for them to work to.
I am delighted with the final outcome and to have secured a move to an outstanding main contractor.
