Ravi at Gatehouse was a pleasure to work with. From my initial email to him he had set up a meeting within a few days to discuss my options and from there he was always quick to provide updates and liaise between my now employer and I. Highly recommend!



Jess and Grace are absolute legends. They found me the perfect role without me even asking. I was down and out in luck due to Covid and attended so many interviews getting absolutely no where. Jess and Grace suddenly popped into my life arranged me an interview and within one month contract was signed for employment.

Super efficient, super fast and even negotiated the salary I was after. A++

What a team.

To find the right fit for me, John approached one of his trusted contacts from a reputable firm. While the firm was not actively recruiting, I was invited to an interview and a role was created for me. The entire process took just a few weeks.

This opportunity has accelerated my career development. I am so grateful to John for helping me find a firm where I plan to stay long term.
