In 2021, we began a recruitment partnership with PaintWell with the aim to provide the extra support needed to recruit key personnel for their branch expansion plans.

Dan Peacock, Commercial Director at PaintWell Comments; “We engaged with GCS on a retained basis through a Managed Service Agreement, to primarily oversee the recruitment and talent attraction for our extensive branch opening project, as well as handling other recruitment projects. 

They have been responsive, communicative, and effective, taking the time to understand our business and sector.  There is a lot going on within our business right now and it is great to know GCS are here to handle all things recruitment.”

In that time GCS have recruited a number of critical roles for PaintWell, have streamlined their recruitment processes & are producing key assets which will future proof PaintWells recruitment strategy.

Michael Parry, Managing Director, GCS Associates comments; “PaintWell are a fantastic business, and we are proud to partner with them to help them scale up during their expansion. Working together on a Recruitment Process Outsourced (RPO) basis has meant we’ve been able to allocate significant resource to ensure they the right people in place to open new branches.

We’re also supporting for the future by creating a new careers website, candidate packs and video to help attract new talent into the business.”
