“Over the last few weeks things have been changing at short notice. Their commitment to the challenges and their ability to find positive outcomes has been notable: at every point one of the GBN team have stepped up and either fixed the issue or recommended an alternative that has worked out well.

I have been genuinely impressed with them all, and thought some feedback was long overdue.”

Kerry – Manufacturing company in Colchester

We are a busy food manufacturing facility that requires flexibility in our workforce.  Working with GBN allows us this, they offer an efficient and effective service delivering us the right people when we need them. Glen and the team have the ability to seek out suitable candidates – knowing exactly what we need.

They have taken on board our very specific recruitment requirements and understand our need to have staffed fully briefed on their roles before they arrive.

Their customer service is outstanding, we wouldn’t consider working with anyone else.

Our company has been using GBN Kiloforce since 2013. Their quick and dedicated service has played an important part in facilitating our company’s growth by increasing production.

Mid-way through 2014 we had to increase our workforce by 50% to facilitate a move to shift-working to satisfy our growing demand. At this time they were very responsive and mindful of our requirements, providing personnel to allow us to put the plan in place. In the times when we have needed to put a full double shift in place for short notice high-demand periods they have moved quickly to provide the staff to enable us to do so.”

We have been able to develop and grow some of the GBN agency staff for our mutual benefit. We have been able to offer fixed term contracts to a handful of staff and the same are due to be offered permanent contracts with us in the early part of 2016. Our current two shift team leaders are both former GBN agency staff.

Dear all, Just a quick note to say thank you for supplying the best seasonal workforce we have had to date.

Having worked with GBN for nearly two years now, we have found them to be a breath of fresh air for the recruitment industry. Not only are GBN able to quickly react to our companies ever-changing demands in a prompt, concise and understanding manner, they are able to provide us with a proactive approach to recruiting. This means that GBN come to us with potential problems they have identified and offer us solutions before an issue comes to a head. Such an approach allows us all to neatly avoid the catastrophes that can occur when recruitment decisions are made late or go wrong. GBN’s approach to recruiting has resulted in us considering them as a business partner rather than a just a supplier and we truly hope that the relationship continues to reap dividends for both parties.

Being responsible for ensuring all orders get to our customers quickly and efficiently, means that the team we have in place to do this are critical to the business. It is crucial that I work with an agency who are reliable and responsive and provide good quality team members.  In the past year I have found the individuals supplied by GBN to be of high quality and hard working. I have also found that should we be let down that GBN are quick to respond with a solution.

I would not hesitate to recommend GBN as an agency partner to other companies.

“We have been using GBN Kiloforce for a number of years providing us labour on construction sites. In our line of work, we have used a number of agencies in the past, but I can say honestly that GBN have offered us a first class service and would not use anyone else.

Their rates are  competitive and we often have to provide cleaners at very short notice. GBN have even helped us out after office hours , when other agencies are closed. All the staff they have provided have worked hard and we have also taken staff on from them once their requisite period has expired.  We would have no hesitation in recommending them.

We have been supplied with temps by the Colchester branch of GBN Kiloforce since April 2011 after several bad experiences with other agencies! From the very beginning of our relationship I have been impressed with the level of commitment and professionalism the guys have shown. Over the years I have become extremely confident and reliant in the people and the service that is provided by all and hope that our alliance grows even stronger in the future.

We are a successful window and door hardware manufacturer and have used GBN services for both temporary and permanent recruitment solutions for some years now. During that time we have always found the service exceptional, efficient and professional whilst remaining friendly and approachable. With ever decreasing lead times in manufacturing it is vital that we have some flexibility with our labour force at very short notice. GBN continually help us to maintain this at all times.

I have worked with GBN and Pyramid to fulfil our short term labour requirements for many years, through a long-standing relationship built on trust, excellent service delivery and good value. There are very few local providers who can match these strengths, and also many larger agency brands that fail to deliver across a full range of key performance indicators. We have built up a very good working relationship with GBN leading to more of a partnership rather than just a typical customer-supplier relationship, with both businesses successfully sharing the benefits of this approach.

In my role as GM I am responsible for all the recruitment of the business and this consists of using agencies at certain points of the year or when staff let me down! I decided to use a local recruitment agency and chose GBN of which I have been more than happy with over the past five years. Their staff are more than helpful in fulfilling our business needs and I feel the rates are fair.  I would have no hesitation recommending GBN to other businesses and I look forward to our continuing working relationship over the coming years.

Our company has been using the services of GBN Kiloforce for more than 8 years now and we cannot praise them highly enough. Their service is very good, competitive and tailor made. Our company feels that GBN is a reliable valued partner to our business and by providing personnel have helped us on numerous occasions to achieve our production targets. The staff at GBN are very friendly and helpful in responding to our needs very quickly providing skilled and unskilled workers whenever we need them to, sometimes on a very short lead-time. We can always rely that the personnel provided will meet our strict criteria. GBN is the first port of call when temporary labour is needed and when a permanent vacancy is opening. Our company has also employed numerous staff which were introduced to us by GBN.
