“I would like to recommend Matt to anyone looking for work. Aside from finding me a position very fast, his approach was honest and personable. Unlike other recruitment consultants that I have encountered, Matt identifies and appreciates that you are making a life changing decision that will impact you and your family for years to come and does not evade the truth with nonsense, but delivers a direct and comprehensive strategy. Thanks again Matt.”
James Cox, Randall Simmonds LLP
“During the time that Sophie worked with us, we found her to be extremely professional and rigorous, continually striving to understand the varying project roles and responsibilities that we required and promoting candidates that were not only suitable, but of the best possible standard. Where candidates were unsuccessful in their application, she worked hard on their behalf to procure precise, constructive feedback, assisting both her and the candidate in how best to direct their efforts. Sophie also brings a personable approach to her work that is hugely refreshing, valuable and very much appreciated. We look forward to working with her again in the future.”
Chris McCurtin, Corstorphine and Wright
“Working with Abi has been an absolute pleasure. She has gone above and beyond in making the process of finding a job as stress-free and enjoyable as a job search can be. Abi provided clear and regular communication, which helped build up a level of trust and sense of ease that made this process an enjoyable experience. I would happily work with Abi again.”
“It has been an absolute pleasure working with Patrick, he’s very responsive and laid back so you feel relaxed and comfortable when talking to him, it made it easier to be clear about what I was looking for. Something that stuck out to me about Patrick is how hard he worked to reassure me in gloomy situations which allayed any of my fears going forward. There’s an air of calm and easiness when you speak to him, this is testimony of his confidence at what he does. He is someone I’d definitely recommend working with, especially when you’re looking to change positions.”

They were able to answer all the queries the group had, de-mystifying agency work and leaving a real 'buzz' in the room after they had left! Several of the group are now keen to work with RGB Recruitment Ltd."

Patrick is very talented and hard working! After our first conversation, he immediately booked me some interviews and worked really hard to find me a job! As a graduate I didn't have experience but Patrick helped me overcome the difficulties and finally I was able to get a job only at the second interview!
Vicky Karavatsi - Structural Engineer
Patrick has now successfully assisted us with several appointments which have been instrumental to the growth of our business. He has always provided excellent levels service and is able to tune into requirements with the minimal prompting resulting in him being able to offer us access to excellent candidates. His after sales service has also been exemplary with him making sure that the candidates settle in properly and generally keeping in touch at every step of the process. I would have no reservation in recommending Patrick to both candidates and employers.
Michael Humphreys, KB2
I have been working with Patrick now for several years and he has helped me find my current position and some very good candidates at other companies within the Exeter area. I have always found Patrick very easy to talk to and works very hard to find exactly what you want and need. I can't fault the man he does what he says he will do, and more.

Sam has helped me recruit MEP and Sustainability Engineers for our SDS Bristol office. We’ve had at least four, all successful, recruits through Sam over the last two to three years. Each candidate is personally vetted by Sam to make sure their qualifications, experiences, personality and overall ability to fit in and succeed at SDS are aligned with our highest requirements. Sam has been exceptional and he is strongly recommended by me.
Alan Watson, Service Design Solutions (SDS)
Sam has been brilliant in helping me to start my new adventure. He is very encouraging and always there to give support and advice when needed. He kept in touch regularly with updates on my application. You can tell that Sam genuinely loves what he does and this is shown through his enthusiasm to help people find their perfect roles. Thank you so much Sam!

We have a fantastic success rate and still get a real buzz from hearing how the person we placed not only fits with your culture but is also helping make a positive difference to your business.
We’re a little bit obsessed with making sure we’re doing a great job and regularly sense-check our service levels – this way, it flags up if we need to make any improvements, but, importantly, also allows us to praise our stellar team.
Over the past few years our company has been recognised for our ability to consistently recruit in the sector, so much so we’re having to get a bigger cabinet to display all of our shiny trophies.
We build long lasting relationships with our clients which means we build a stronger understanding of their business which in turn means we place the right candidates. Our team tend to stick around too, meaning you’ll have plenty of familiar faces to work with.
We pride ourselves on employing only the best and have a rigorous selection process. We take our time to recruit the right fit for our business and our staff development programme means you’ll experience quality no matter who you deal with.
Nearly two decades of experience working with the construction sector means we have become one of the most trusted, established and respected recruitment agencies in the UK, attracting some of the biggest names in the industry and the best talent around.
At RGB, we have always adopted a community focused culture – be it through sponsoring an industry or charity event, putting on our lycra to take part in a cycling event or baking cakes to help raise vital funds, one thing’s for sure, the whole team approach every activity or initiative with enthusiasm.
For the last 2 years we have been raising money for Force Cancer Charity, as well as taking part in Movember 2022 which helps many mens health charities. In 2022 we raised £6,405.75 for Force Cancer Charity!
In addition to putting on our own fundraising events, we are also keen supporters of other businesses and individuals doing great things in the community. In 202 we will be continuing to sponsor a Exeter Chiefs Player and we remain committed to supporting The Exeter Chiefs and Exeter City Football Club.
We are also very active within our own industry, with staff taking positions in the Women in Property networking group and Constructing Excellence, something we are very proud of. RGB also host free CV workshops for those seeking employment in construction and regularly attend schools and colleges to host CV workshops and mock interviews.
We are proud of our fantastic partners and to be part of the Pertemps Network Group.
