Leanne was amazing throughout my time as a temp with Gray & Associates. Her communication was great always responding to queries so quickly and keeping me up to date with any contract extensions. Extremely professional and always made sure I felt valued by going the extra mile. Thank you. Camilla Nov 2023
After years of temping, I finally found an agency that really cares about me and what I need. I was going to type "cares about the employee" but that'd be a disservice to G&A, the whole team treat me as a person and have had my back when I needed it. I cannot stress enough how satisfied I have been working through G&A.
Leanne has really listened to my needs and asked the right questions at the right time to ensure I have been employed in two amazing placements this year at world renowned institutions, without an inconvenient lengthy gap or delay in pay. She has even advocated on my behalf to a hiring institution I was placed with to ensure I was given quarterly contract renewals rather than monthly, providing me with much needed stability. Make no mistake this is a person who gets things done, quickly and correctly every time.
Phillipa in Payroll is also incredible, I have no idea how she makes sure I'm paid on time even when I've made an unexpected request last minute. ( I am ever grateful!)
Sian is always there and ready to take care of anything I need in the moment, with a rapid solution and it's always a joy to speak with her on the phone.
It's great communicating with everyone at this agency, as I look back over the emails I have exchanged they are so polite, respectful, friendly, caring and packed with instances of them going out of their way to anticipate my needs. I know I am not alone in this opinion as I work with a number of other G&A temps in my office and this is the opinion across the whole group.
This is the type of agency where you know them by their names, and they know who I am when I call, what more could you ask for? Abbas Nov 2023
I want to say a huge thank you to Leanne at Gray & Associates for all the help over the last few years. Leanne is extremely responsive, and has always had a new role lined up for me when my current one is due to end. Rofiqul Nov 2023
I am so grateful to Leanne and Gray & Associates for giving me an opportunity to begin a new career path mid-pandemic. Leanne has been nothing but supportive throughout the years, her willingness to go the extra mile has made me feel truly valued. I have had valuable experiences, I have been able to learn and develop in the workplace. Thank you for everything. Ana Nov 2023
I am delighted to describe Grays and Associate as a exceptional and fast rising recruitment agency, who uphold professionalism and excellence in all they do. I would particular love to commend Leanne, who is the Associate Director as an extremely professional, kind, diligent and patient person; who genuinely cares about and nurtures the professional development of staff every step of the way from staying in the role to guiding through interview advice. I would particularly like to commend Leanne on the excellent way in which she continuously liaises between the professional clients and myself, making for an efficient and seamless working experience.
I appreciate how Leanne is exceptionally conscientious & meticulous in all she does. She is also extremely dedicated and constantly goes above and beyond to ensure the best possible outcome for me, as well as, all those under her supervision. She is constantly thinking of innovative ways to create new solutions to existing problems. The professional rapport and relationship between me and Leanne was easily developed, as her greatest strength is her ability to constantly communicate with all stakeholders and liaise seamlessly between the client and me.
She ensures that she finds roles which are best suited and matched to my strengths. During the entire process of finding a new role, I felt constantly reassured by Leanne's ongoing support in every conceivable way, for example; she suggested interview support, which allowed me to gain excellent roles, as well as providing me with fiscal advice, whilst in the role. I am currently really enjoying my role; which I have been in for the best part of 7 months, where I am provided with ample training opportunities, whilst I am also constantly exposed to ways for me to proactively learn and develop professionally at my own pace, which encourages me further to produce excellent work and provide great service, which I hope to develop even further with the help of Gray and Associates. I also really enjoy my new role as there are a lot of staff wellbeing activities which strengthen me to be better prepared to learn and evolve, where new industry regulations are set in place.
I have learnt so much in the duration I have been with Gray and Associates, all of which could not be possible without Leanne's support. I will always be forever grateful to Leanne for interviewing me to be a part of Gray and Associates. Leanne was almost immediately able to identify where I am most adept and used this excellent synthesising of knowledge to land me into the most suitable role for me, where I work with delightful and friendly people. I have become even more proactive and that is all thanks to knowing that in every stride I take to develop and grow professionally, I am supported by Leanne and other wonderful and amazing members at Gray and Associates. Leanne's aptitude at all she does is unparalleled and she is an exceptional member of Gray and Associates, we are all lucky to have her brilliance and outstanding nature contributing so much, and leading us to greater heights. Words do not do her character justice and I wish her all the best of luck in life". Haleemat Oct 2023
I have nothing but the utmost praise for Leanne. Having registered with many recruitment agencies over the years and from my own personal experience, I would say it has been a bit of a mixed bag – some have been good, some bad. Leanne is an exception though as she demonstrates real professionalism when it comes to supporting you throughout the recruitment process.
You can be sure if a role comes in that is tailored to your skills and experience, she will notify you in the first instance and will keep you informed every step of the way from start to finish so you are not left waiting and wondering if you have secured an interview or indeed a job.
She is a real people person with exceptional communication skills and has proved to be invaluable.
I cannot recommend her highly enough! Paul Oct 2023
I have had the pleasure of working with Leanne Sangster as my recruiter at Grays Agency, and I cannot speak highly enough of her dedication and professionalism. In an industry where personal attention and commitment can sometimes be lacking, Leanne truly stands out.
Unlike most recruitment agencies, Leanne goes above and beyond to ensure her clients find the perfect roles. She invested significant time and effort into understanding my skills, goals, and aspirations, which translated into tailored job opportunities that matched my profile perfectly.
What truly sets Leanne apart is her exceptional communication skills. She is incredibly responsive to emails and calls, always ensuring that I was informed and supported throughout the recruitment process. Her ability to address any concerns or questions promptly is a testament to her commitment to her clients' success.
Leanne Sangster's genuine dedication to helping her clients succeed is truly commendable. She takes the time to understand your needs and works tirelessly to connect you with the right opportunities. If you are seeking a recruiter and are struggling to find a role short term/long term , Leanne Sangster is the ideal choice.
I am immensely grateful for Leanne's assistance in helping me secure my current role, and I wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone in search of a dedicated and effective recruiter. Taneen Sept 2023
Had the pleasure and honour to work with Leanne when I was looking for new role in Libraries. New to contracting and agency work I am endlessly grateful to Leanne for her patience, knowledge, gentle encouragement and genuine kindness. Really couldn't ask for a better recruitment consultant. She was promoted to associate director during the year I worked with her and it was well deserved. To anyone looking for a new role, definitely go with Gray Associates and also put a reminder in your phone so your timesheets are on time! Claire Sept 2023
Leanne has been very responsive and provided us with very good candidates. Leanne understands requirements, listens carefully and comes back with actions and solutions straight away. Leanne is professional and very approachable, providing suitable solutions to meet strict deadlines. I will have no reservation in working with Leanne again.

Leanne was extremely helpful in helping me find a position while I was searching for job opportunities. She responded to my emails and queries very promptly and was always professional and friendly.
I would highly recommend Leanne and Gray and Associates Recruitment Services if you are looking for new job opportunities! Ciaran Jul 2023
Thanks to Sian for turning around my temp role at the Alan Turing Institute so quickly – couldn’t ask for a more friendly and high quality experience than I had! Cheryl Jul 2023
I've had such a positive experience since I signed up with Grays in April 2023. My contact, Sian Griffiths, one of the Talent Acquisition Team, was brilliant with getting me started on completing the registration process, then helping to find jobs in this sector. She has been very professional and easy to talk to whenever I had a query. You never felt like you were being pressured into accepting something you were not really interested in. Within a very short time, I had been offered a role and was back in employment after having taken some time away from work. Great, quick turnaround. Would highly recommend signing up with Grays if the education sector is what you're interested in. Stephanie June 2023
I am writing to recommend Gray & Associates Recruitment Services to anyone who is looking for a new job. I had the pleasure of working with Sian from G&A to find a new role, and I was very impressed with her service. The first thing that I noticed about Sian and G&A was their professionalism. They were very responsive to my enquiries, and they always kept me up-to-date on the status of my application. They also took the time to understand my needs and goals, and they made sure to match me with roles that were a good fit for me. Another thing that I appreciated was their personal touch. They weren't just interested in filling a job opening; they were interested in helping me find a role that would make me happy. They took the time to get to know me, and they were always there to answer my questions and provide me with support. I am happy to say that I was eventually offered a job through G&A, and I am now very happy in my new role. I would definitely recommend Sian and G&A to anyone who is looking for a new job. They are a professional and personal agency that is committed to helping their clients find the right fit. Here are some specific things that I appreciated about G&A:
1. Their responsiveness: They were always quick to respond to my emails and calls.
2. Their understanding of my needs: They took the time to understand my skills, experience, and goals.
3. Their personal touch: They weren't just interested in filling a job opening; they were interested in helping me find a role that would make me happy.
4. Their commitment to their clients: They were always there to answer my questions and provide me with support.
Overall, I had a very positive experience with Sian and G&A. I would definitely recommend them to anyone who is looking for a new job. Michael June 2023
I first started temping with Gray & Associates around 4 years ago and I can honestly say that they're the best agency I've dealt with. I've been temping for almost 20 years now and have been signed up with some of the big agencies, but none of those provide anywhere near as good a service as Gray & Associates. From 2019-2021, they kept me consistently in back to back roles at UCL. When one contract ended, they already had another one lined up for me so I was never out of work. Many of my roles were also extended, with one that was meant to be 6 weeks becoming an 18 month booking. Everyone in the team is really friendly, professional and helpful and I can always count on them to get whatever I need done and resolve the very few issues that come up very quickly. I took a fixed term contract and stopped temping for 15 months, but as soon as I notified them I was available for work again, they had secured a new temp postion for me in 3 days! Honestly couldn't ask for more and couldn't be happier with the service I receive and I would highly recommend to anyone! Gina June 2023
I found Leanne when looking for temp roles at UCL University. Even though I was not under employment with Leanne and Gray Recruitment, Leanne took a good amount of time speaking to me both initially and afterwards, to advise me on my rights as a temp worker. Leanne advised and supported me on a couple of difficult points that cropped up, regarding holiday pay and gave me some excellent advice on how to handle and problem solve the obstacles. I am very grateful, as she was willing to do this even though I was not employed by Gray's agency at the time. Leanne also takes time to find out what you are after jobwise and what you are interested in, as well as your experience, and goes above and beyond, to enquire more information from employers, so that I was able to make a solid decision. I have just finished a long continually extended temp role at UCL, which was made extra successful, with Leanne's advice, so thank you Leanne. I hope to work via Gray Recruiment sometime. I fully recommend Leanne, her willingness to share knowledge for tricky times, was invaluable. Thank you. Abigail June 2023
I thoroughly recommend Gray & Associates. They spent time to help me prepare for my interviews and have been very supportive throughout my temporary employment. Thank you for being so brilliant! Karen Apr 2023
I have had a wonderful experience working with Christina over the past 3 years and have experienced tremendous personal and professional growth in various areas such as leadership, communication skills and relational skills. The team at Gray & Associates was always very proactive. Leanne was an absolute star as well.
Christina was always there and ready if I needed any support or have any questions that needed answer. The amount of support that I received from Christina during the COVID-19 and to bring my family to join me in the UK goes without saying. The level of attention, caring and kindness was excellent.
I wish you and the entire team at Gray & Associates Recruitment Services continued success. Job Apr 2023
Leanne is an absolutely outstanding recruiter. I have been thoroughly impressed with her professionalism and integrity, which have undoubtedly contributed to her success in the field.
One of the key qualities that I appreciate about her is her honesty. She is always upfront and transparent about the recruitment process, ensuring that both the client and the candidate are fully informed and aware of what to expect. She has an excellent understanding of the market and can quickly identify the right candidate for the right job.
I must also commend her for the way she treats candidates with respect and dignity. She understands that the recruitment process can be a challenging and stressful time for candidates, and she goes out of her way to make them feel valued and supported.
I wholeheartedly endorse Leanne to anyone in search of an excellent recruitment professional. She is a true asset to the industry and sets the bar high for others to follow. Sonia Apr 2023

I have been registered to a few agencies before but this has definitely been the smoothest and most professional one by far, I highly recommend them! Sara March 2023
