About The GBN Group

Providing recruitment solutions in Essex since 1989

Since 1989 The GBN Group has operated as four separate companies Pyramid Recruitment Services Ltd, GBN-Kiloforce Ltd, People Recruitment Solutions Ltd and GBN Associates Ltd all trading in different sectors of the recruitment industry. The group has been going from strength to strength in recent years and all of our companies have now been merged together under one trading style, The GBN Group Ltd.

The employment of both temporary and permanent staff has entered a new era, where success depends more than ever before upon efficiency, flexibility and reliability. Advertising or looking for vacancies in traditional mediums has become less dependable, with increased demand for quality staff. Furthermore, competition between employers for the best candidates available means that organisations must face the impact of increased recruitment costs.

The GBN Group is one of Colchester’s leading employment agencies, offering recruitment solutions on both a temporary and permanent basis. Maintaining a competitive edge in an uncertain world is now, more than ever before, dependant on spreading the recruitment net as wide as possible. Our team of highly experienced recruitment consultants work with companies to ensure that their staff requirements are met with people who are experienced in the skills required, at the right time, in the right place and at the right price.

The company is proud of the fact that it is one of only 5% of recruitment agencies operating in the UK to have achieved Investor in People recognition, which demonstrates a well-equipped and highly trained work force available with skills and training to cope with all of our client’s needs. We are also members of the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC) and maintain high standards in all aspects of our business. It takes professional people to provide an individually tailored recruitment solution, people who understand your specific needs and are as committed to your future as we are to our own. At the GBN Group we believe that knowing our market inside out is essential and that means expertise right through our organisation.
