Gold Group is one of the largest independently owned technical recruitment companies in the UK. Since February 2000 we have specialised in providing professional staff to a number of highly technical industries:
Life Sciences, Technology, Engineering, and Construction.
Unlike many generalist recruitment companies who have only a general knowledge of the industries in which they work, our business depends on in depth knowledge and real expertise. We have to know the exact skills required for a particular role, as well as the personal qualities needed to operate effectively in very specific working environments, varying from army bases to off shore platforms.
We are extremely selective about the recruitment consultants we employ and being good communicators alone is not enough. Each consultant must have a detailed understanding of the industry in which they are working and we ensure that this is the case. The quality of the feedback we receive from both clients and candidates is testimony to the respect our consultants earn.
Key to building up detailed market knowledge is time. There is no substitute for gaining experience in a specific industry across a number of years. This makes it crucial for our business to retain and motivate our staff and we are proud of our excellent level of staff retention. We are a member of the REC and are committed to managing, training, developing and inspiring our staff on an ongoing basis.
As an independent company, we are not driven by a need to satisfy external investors who may be looking for short-term results. This is crucial to our philosophy of developing long term relationships, with our clients, our candidates, our staff and everyone else with whom we come into contact.
