I have worked with Leanne on and off since 2016 (if not longer), and really value how Leanne operates more as a mentor, helping to identify strengths in my skills and experiences, and competencies. Very responsive and empathic, Leanne is always on hand to provide impartial advice and solutions. As such, if I ever require short-term work, I always email Leanne as my preferred agency. Nadja July 2022
I have received outstanding support, advice and professional service from Leanne during my time at Grays. Always available and approachable, thinking out of the box and finding solutions for any issue which may arise during a mission with a client. I have used many recruitment agencies in the past, Gray Agency being the best on the market for higher education roles and I was very impressed, from application to placement, timesheet processing, payment, etc. I have now secured a permanent role which was originally a placement with Grays, so I am grateful to Leanne for all her hard work and dedication, and the positive change and outcome it had in my personal life and career. I highly recommend! Lucie June 2022
I have actually worked with a few different recruitment agencies and each time, I myself, would be doing all the chasing for timesheets, payments, information, waiting for them to reply back to my emails and calls and basically everything else. Amani was/is my recruitment advisor, though I don't doubt anyone who works here is helpful. The level of service I received from Amani was outstanding. I have never worked with a recruitment agency where someone has; not only answered all my questions and explained everything to me, but given me their complete and absolute time and focus. From day one she explained everything to me, all processes and procedures and in thorough detail, leaving me with no questions at all to ask. Any questions I did have, I would call and email Amani and I would, without delay, always receive a 'quick' reply or call back. This company's service is tailored to give each individual the time, focus and attention they deserve and this is why I said I have never received this level of service from any other recruitment company before. They are also professional, patient and respectful, which is not something I have experienced with other recruitment agencies I have worked with in the past. I believe that, though at present Gray & Associates Recruitment Services are a small, independent company, herein lies their Greatest Strength, as this has enabled them to give each individual they work with their undivided time and attention. 'Thank you Amani', your service to me has been nothing short of ‘amazing’ (honestly) and to all those at this company who have helped me, very quickly, every-single time, thank you. Shaheen June 2022
As someone who has used a variety of agents I found Gray & Associates Recruitment Services and Sian in particular to be thorough professionals. Compared to other agencies they kept me informed promptly of any developments and managed to find me a role within a week of joining! Simon June 2022
From our first conversation Leanne was brilliant in introducing me to Grays and higher education. She engaged proactively, kept me aprised at every stage even whilst going on leave, she made sure I was looked after by the team.
During the job search, I spoke to plenty of agencies but Leanne and the team surpassed them all!
The candidate portal to onboard is super simple - all round great service. Also loving my new role!! 👍 Thank you Leanne!! Kianna May 2022
Christina professionalism is outstanding; Christina is caring to each one of her clients. I would highly recommend using her services. If you want five star services look no further. Harinder May 2022
This is the first time I've temped for Gray Agency and from the first interview with Amani, I felt welcomed and valued as an individual. Amani always followed up with a friendly message and made a point of checking-in to see how things are going. I really appreciate Amani's help in finding me a temp role and would definitely recommend her and Gray Agency to other job seekers. Celine May 2022
I had the pleasure of working with Leanne whilst doing temporary work with Grays. I don’t think I could’ve asked for a better manager than Leanne, who brought me on to Grays two years ago and immediately found me a great role in higher education. I was constantly amazed by her energy, work ethic and efficient approach to communication. And I will certainly miss working with her and the rest of the Grays. I wholeheartedly recommend Leanne and I think anyone would be fortunate for the opportunity to work with her at Grays. Christiana May 2022
Five star service! Leanne has worked tirelessly to find the perfect candidate, each time, for my department. She is professional and efficient in her handling of the assignments and the candidates/agency workers! Gemma May 2022
Leanne's quick action to help us recruit a temporary role holder saved us from what could have been a painful period of vacancy. Leanne clearly has a good understanding of the Higher Education sector and quickly grasped the role we were recruiting for and understood the type of person that would be needed to fill such a complex role. I felt like I did very little of the work, which is so appreciated.
I wouldn't hesitate for a second to work with Leanne again. Many thanks to her and the team at Gray & Associates Recruitment Services. Vivien May 2022
I have nothing but good things to say about Leanne Sangster and the team at Gray and Associates. Having temped for nearly six years and having worked with several agencies, my experience with Grays has definitely been the best of the lot.
Processes and the pay structures are transparent and easy to understand. With some agencies I've worked with, pay slips often left me confused: never being able to completely understand the logic behind the amount of deductions being made. Gray's pay slips, on the other hand, are clear, and I never was in doubt about what amount of pay would be going into my account each week.
The Grays website is user-friendly, easy to navigate, and it's always up to date. Unlike the websites of many agencies, jobs that are no longer available are removed from the site.
I would not hesitate to accept the chance of working with Grays again in the future. Kevin May 2022
I have worked with Gray and Associates Recruitment Services for 18 months and have been very happy with the range of professional services temporary positions which have given me the opportunity to learn new skills. Leanne is a consummate professional: friendly, motivating, approachable and considerate. She responds to queries in a timely manner and always puts one at ease. I would highly recommend Leanne and her team for recruitment purposes, as the team are simply fantastic! It has been a pleasure working with Grays. Gillian Mar 2022
From the off, Christina and her team were proactive and professional in their approach. Both Christina and Leanne gave me excellent advice and they matched me quickly to a suitable temporary role. I would highly recommend Christina and her team to both candidates and recruiters! Christine Feb 2022
A great 'thank you' Leanne for your professionalism and support during my recent job search. The online recruitment market has become increasingly tough and impersonal. Finding a new role, as we all know, is hard work. It has been very reassuring having a direct contact and an interested team at Gray & Associates working on my behalf and making an exceptional effort. Best wishes to you all Bernice Feb 2022
In the five years I've been temping I've encountered some agencies whose practices, should I say, were a tad questionable in order to land you that assignment. If you're in-between roles or just like the idea of temping because it suits your work/lifestyle balance, I can't recommend Gray & Associates Recruitment Services highly enough. They're not huge and that's what I love about them; you speak to the same person regularly, you receive a reply if not almost immediately, at the very least on the same day, plus they don't BS you when it comes to putting you forward for roles thereby wasting your time. Leanne Sangster has been my go to person at Gray's and she does the agency proud - professionalism, support, empathy and understanding personified. In the nicest possible way I hope never to have to use them again but if I do find myself unemployed again, they'll be the first agency I'll turn to. Thank you Gray's for steering me right and for all your hard work on my behalf! Regina Feb 2022
I can definitely recommend Gray & Associates... I'd know cos I'm still enjoying their services, even through the rockiest of times we have managed to rise above and achieve heights not thought possible.. I still vividly remember when I stepped into their office to talk with Leanne Sangster back then, and how quickly I got sorted out into a role in record time till now. She's always there to lend a listening ear with a dedication to always fighting the course if her employees.. they run an envious, seamless lean team.. Kudo to the team and their passion to achieving success!!! Emeka Jan 2022
I had been registered with Gray and Associates for just over two years and had received a high level of service from Leanne throughout this time. If I had a query, I would receive a response within an hour on almost every occasion. Where else can you receive such a high level of customer service! It was exceptional. It was clear that Leanne had a person centred approach and would always ensure that my needs were met as best as possible, whilst always providing clear explanations where this was not possible. I was also extremely impressed by her emphasis on well-being particularly through the initial stages of Covid with lots of support provided and was very touched to receive a gift from Gray and Associates after the passing of my grandmother during this time. I would highly recommend Leanne and the whole Gray and Associates team. Khiera Jan 2022
Grays is the best agency I have worked through after many years of working through 'bigger' agencies. Leanne at Grays is excellent and clearly does her best for both candidates and clients. I'm always impressed at the consistently friendly, genuine and five star service with fast responses to any queries. I have always been matched to the roles which are right for me and have always been paid on time. Highly recommended. Matt Jan 2022
For me Gray and Associates have been my work family. The whole team works together to make it so much more than a recruitment agency. They have supported me in applying for the right roles. They helped me expand my career prospects by helping me understand the full value of my skillset and experience. They are always available if you need them and have been extremely supportive in uncertain times like the pandemic. Leanne is and has been simply the best! I can't thank her enough for helping me build the confidence to seek more senior positions and the best fit for me and my quirky self. She has been instrumental in building myself a new life filled with positive experiences and learning.
Gray's has a well-earned impeccable reputation for their professionalism and an ethical approach to work.
Whether you are starting your career, returning after a break or looking for your next adventure, they are the best agency around. I recommend them wholeheartedly. You will be in good hands and don't ever need to feel like "just another temp" :). Sabah Dec 2021
Gray & Associates is one of the best recruitment agencies I have worked with. Throughout the years working on temporary assignments, I found that Leanne has been a friendly, professional, and knowledgeable Senior Manager. who is always on hand to provide an excellent service, and answer any queries for her temps.
I would like to say a big thank you to everyone at Gray & Associates, and I would highly recommend Leanne, Christina and the rest of the team to anyone seeking new opportunities in the future. Suzanne Aug 2021
