“James at Giant Recruitment couldn't have been more helpful. I was looking for my first GP job after finishing training and relocating 180 miles, so it was a daunting prospect. I felt that I was listened to and he respected my views as to what I was looking for, rather than sending any old job in my direction. He was helpful and took all of the legwork out of finding the right job. James assisted right through the entire process, giving me interview and new job advice along the way, and making sure once I was in post, I was settled. I really valued his personable approach and would happily ask for his help again should I come to need it in future, but he has done such a good job at finding the right match between me and the practice, I don't expect I’ll need to!”

“James has been patient and listened to what I have been looking for and found me the right practice that I have now settled in and happy as a salaried Doctor. He regularly kept me up to date throughout the process of me looking for a suitable role and settling in the practice. He even gave me a follow up call after 4 weeks of me settling in to the role to find out if everything is going to my expectations.
I have dealt with other agencies before and they did not offer me the same level of professionalism or understanding of the GP market.”

“I recently returned to work after a break on maternity leave and feel very lucky to have landed a role as a salaried GP in a welcoming practice in Sussex. This is all down to James from Giant Recruitment who made contact via a colleague (which I had consented to). James was efficient at getting in touch, following up calls when he said he would but at no point did I feel hassled or pressured into applying. He listened to my hopes and job requirements and made realistic recommendations, avoiding jobs that were too far away or in practices that did not sound suitable.
When it came to arranging the interview this was done efficiently and he was very helpful in giving some advice prior to the meeting. He followed up the interview and helpfully kept me informed of progress.
I am very happy in this job which I feel James was able to direct me to, as he was well informed about the nature of the post and the kind of person the surgery were looking for. I would definitely recommend him if you are looking for work but not quite sure of what's out there.”

“I also just wanted to say thank you for all your help in finding me a job. This was the first time I'd spoken to anyone from a recruitment agency. I was somewhat nervous about this and you talked me through what to expect and really seem to have endeavoured to match me to a suitable practice and vice versa. You have kept me informed about things throughout proceedings and I really appreciate the extra time you have spent and help you have given me. You have changed my opinion of recruiting agencies significantly for the better.”

“James was my recruitment agent for my first permanent GP job. In his role, he was a consummate professional from start to finish. He had a good knowledge of the practice that I would go on to join, and at every step of the way was supportive and helpful without being overbearing or pushy. I would recommend him highly to any GP considering using him for their own job finding process.”
