"Granite Search knows our business and our people so well, we don't have to worry about the fit of the candidates they recommend."
Chris Anderson - ISG Agility
"Recruiting the best talent at the right time for our growth is our greatest challenge, but with Granite Search they listened and took the time to drill into the detail of our specific requirements, skills, and work to match the right candidate. The most recent candidate placed by Granite Search has been exactly what was specified and is now a valuable asset to our team. I would recommend Granite Search to anyone looking for a recruitment firm that listens to their clients’ requirements."
Dave Andrews, Epiphany
"I have been very happy with the Granite team, so far in our search for staff at the business. I have used them previously at other companies and hence you build a relationship with their company/ brand based on them putting forward the calibre of candidates that we need."
Mike Bragg, Myco Contracts
"There’s no doubt Granite Search has their finger on the pulse of construction in London. It always feels like they have the most current intel on an enormous database of contacts, and as a result provide the most suitable candidates. That’s why I always come to Granite Search. "
Dave Westwood, Make One
"Granite Search are probably the Number 1 agency in the construction and fit-out industry who fully understands it; They have a friendly, 'no-pressure' approach to their candidates."
David Ashcroft, Corley + Woolley Limited
"I have worked with the Granite team for many years, they really make the effort and take the time to find out what you need, get the people who match you as a business culture and operational needs without wasting your time."
Darran Brand, ISG Agility
I have used the services of Granite for a number of years now, mainly for the purpose of permanent construction roles. I have also used them for some freelance roles too.I believe they have a very tough remit to full fill, especially with a business that’s so particular as we are at Collins Construction. To me though what has set them apart, is their hunger to really get to know what I do and don’t like in terms of the personnel we warm to.I believe they understand the nuances of our business and are not afraid to admit when they can’t service a need. This means a lot to me and helps to build trust, that is often missing between contractors and recruitment companies.Finally, I have felt for a long while that Toni Camisotti really has his ear to the ground. It gives me confidence that he knows what’s going on in our market, and who the movers and shakers are.I highly recommend Granite to anyone in the construction industry.Stuart Johnson – Director - Collins Construction

I have used Granite over the past 5 years and they have consistently delivered for us. Some of our key talent growing through as well as our Operational Leaders have been introduced by Granite and I would happily recommend them.
Frank Nefs, ISG plc
Granite Search had worked sporadically with us for years and a proactive approach from their Executive arm led to a meeting to discuss a new Board Appointment. Following an initial consultation we established a detailed specification and programme opting for their exclusive 2 stage retained Search product. Then we added their I3 profiling product which enabled us to build a psychometric profile for our ideal candidate. Within 16 weeks we had identified and secured our man and I can with confidence and enthusiasm endorse Granite Executives efforts.

I would just like to say that I was extremely impressed with the calibre of all of the guys & that you hit the brief I gave you.
Adam Quinn BAH Projects Ltd
Granite had been on our radar for years due to their reputaton so when we were seeking a new Construction Director we approached the business for help. The Executive division moved deftly to consult with us and establish a specification and programme which we agreed to and signed off, adopting their exclusive 2 stage Search product. We found the process smooth and effective with both specification and programme delivered efficiently. We are happy with the result and would recommend Granite Executive for Leadership Appointments.

Granite has partnered with myself and Corley + Woolley on a number of TSM assignments in the last year and has always supplied us with a strong shortlist of ideal candidates, of which we have employed the services of 3. Their approach, manor and levels of professionalism throughout the recruitment process have been of the highest level and I can honestly say it has been a pleasure to deal with Granite. I will without hesitation engage with the Granite team again for my next appointments.
David Rice Corley + Woolley
Granite were courteous, professional and well informed. It was a pleasure to work with them and it felt as though they genuinely cared about finding the correct placement rather than chasing commission. I have had some negative experiences in the past attending interviews that were not positions or employers that were suited to my requirements, but Granite listened to what I wanted and did their best to find positions and projects that was a good fit all round. Granite offered a proactive attitude to securing a placement and were always on hand to offer guidance and feedback. For any future recruitment requirements my first port of call will be Granite.

Granite Search have been working with us for around 4 years and during that time we have made a number of hires from them. They know the business well and have a good understanding of United Living’s ethos and values which they take in to consideration when forwarding candidates. They are a supply chain partner that we trust and regularly use, and we wish to main this relationship in the future. Their professional and honest approach with us has made them stand out and they have shown a genuine effort in providing a quality service to us.

I used Granite during the recruitment process for my site in Orpington on a number of roles. During the recruitment period Granite gave an excellent service, was honest in relation to the candidates they sent over and always kept us updated. The benefit with Granite was that they interviewed and referenced every candidate they sent over and made sure that they would be a good fit for my team and the Berkeley Group. I would be happy to use Granite again for future recruitment needs.

Just reaching out to express my thanks at the courtesy call you gave me after an interview I had with you over the phone in mid September 2019. You said I was 'looking for the next step' and that you were sure I would find something. This message gave me a real lift at a difficult time where I was deep in the midst of a very challenging job hunt, and very much stuck in the experience trap! I have since found 'the next step', working on the operational/ account managing / technical side of a fintech startup and am really enjoying it. No doubt this kind of integrity has served you well and will continue to serve you well in the future. All the very best, James
