As an experienced recruiter myself, I have almost, without exception, been totally unimpressed with the search services delivered by what is known in the trade as the "rec-to-rec" firms. However, my views were totally turned around by Peter Cobley and his team at Grosvenor Human Capital. We gave Peter the mandate to find us a new Research Associate for our leading Global Energy Practice, based in London. Peter seemed to understand exactly what we were looking for and was able to access a strong pool of very good people in what at the time was a very hot market for research talent. From the strong shortlist he provided within a very short period, we have hired one of the best researchers available on the market. The individual hired did not have energy knowledge or experience but a significant proven track record in research within the pharmaceutical sector and the interpersonal skills and team working style we were looking for. Looking back, this has turned out to be one of the best hires we have made.
I therefore have no hesitation in recommending Peter to other prospective customers and am happy to provide a personal reference if necessary.

“I have used Grosvenor Human Capital in general and Peter Cobley in particular, for some time. As one of the UK's largest and leading search firms, we only trust and use a very limited number of people to help man out business. Peter is one of those recruiters and in that service, his selection of candidates, the process and his aftercare, have all been exemplary”.

“In a market where the best you seem to get is mediocrity, it is refreshing to find a recruitment to recruitment consultant who takes such a professional and thorough approach. I have been impressed by Peter’s breadth of network, lateral ideas and ability to close”.
Susie Hall, Head of Research & Development, Principal Search, London.
“I wanted to write and say thank you for your help in my recent search for a new job. I really enjoyed working with you and found your support and professionalism a refreshing change from other recruitment consultants that I worked with during my search.
Your honesty and integrity really does make you stand out in your industry, where I found other Consultants in other organisations to be unreliable, untrustworthy and sometimes dishonest. I would, without hesitation, recommend both yourself and the Grosvenor Human Capital team to other candidates and clients alike”.
Thank you and best wishes

“Rarely seen in the Recruitment to Recruitment industry, Peter truly took the time to understand what I was looking for and only discussed suitable positions rather than making a quick placement. He is professional, efficient, always kept me up to date and I would have no hesitation to recommending him”.

It was a pleasure to experience such a professional partner on my side."
Miss I. B. (Rice & Dore, New York)
I'd like to thank you and your colleagues at Grosvenor Human Capital for your assistance during my job search. I found your service consultative, advisory and informed. The preparation and briefings for interview were first class. I even learned a few new things myself! I will have no hesitation in recommending you to other candidates or hiring managers. Thank you for a professional service and for your efforts”.

“Peter Cobley identified and presented a senior career opportunity for me in Asia. Throughout the process Peter was available, engaged, highly professional and knowledgeable. His communication has been (and continues to be) professional, open and honest. I can highly recommend Peter’s abilities to any search professional looking for career advice”.
Mr T. K. (MRI, Singapore)
I have experienced an excellent service, invaluable advice, a very good placement and good after-care from Peter, something only rarely found with Recruitment to Recruitment agencies.
