Our Retained Executive Division offers exclusive access to mainly unadvertised and confidential roles for those in the £100,000 – £500,000+ bracket. As a leading name in headhunting we differ from some of the larger, more general recruiters by offering a specialist, targeted and consultative approach to partnering select clients who share the same values around diversity, inclusion and opportunity.
We have formed close and successful working relationships with a broad range of firms, from established national organisations to entrepreneurial operators. As a result, we are able to draw on these relationships and make contact with the very best in the market and not just those candidates simply on the market.
We have always believed that it is worth the investment, and sometimes the wait, to appoint the highest calibre of person who, in turn, will attract other talented individuals. At Thomas Gray, we have been instrumental in changing the fortunes and culture of many organisations through the introduction of key people and bring value, intelligence and a pre-selection skill to the companies we have represented over many years which has helped us build our reputation, knowledge and develop long lasting business relationships.
HEAD OF CONSTRUCTION
I have known and enjoyed working with both Ian and his team for over twenty years. Having positioned me as Group M.D of Miller Homes, Ian helped me rebuild the business by sourcing both Regional and Divisional Board talent across all disciplines throughout the country. At Antler Homes, a smaller niche player, Ian was once again my go to consultant to source the necessary talent required to rebuild the business. Having set up Sigma Homes, Ian and his well trained team have sourced all of the key managers including that of a newly appointed Group Land Director. In summary I can say with certainty that Thomas Gray deserve the reputation for being the most connected and trusted name in housing sector recruitment.
Over the past year we have engaged with Thomas Gray to fill 7 roles across various disciplines including Commercial, Land, Technical and Construction. They quickly understood Octagons particular needs and the specific skills we were looking for. Only high quality and relevant potential employees were presented to us which enabled this important process to be completed in a timely and efficient way, thank you.
