About RG

RG: The Finance Recruitment Experts

RG Consultancy was established in 2009 by Eric Redfern. Eric has worked in the finance recruitment industry for over 20 years, gaining a reputation for building successful business in most major Cities in the UK. In 2009 he decided it was time he did this for himself.

Eric Says:Over the last 20 years the industry has changed beyond recognition and technology now plays a significant part in attracting candidates for roles. However, the core principles of a good recruitment business remain the same.”

“Success is based in knowing the ambitions and motivations of your candidate and understanding your client’s needs. It is essential that the reason for the move is fully satisfied, if it is not then the move just won’t be fulfilling in the longer term.”

“Most of the candidates we meet are either studying or are qualified accountants or accounting technicians my team understand that it is important to them that their career offers the opportunity to learn and to grow within the role.”

“The people we deal with invest a lot in their careers and we take great personal pride in finding individuals the right role and watching their careers develop.”

“RG have a record of success in filling roles within the SME market and having been a director of a number of companies, I understand the connection between getting the right match and the overall success of the organisation. Filling key roles is our speciality and these are often positions that won’t come up again for a long time.”

What our Clients & Candidates say…

” We are a small manufacturing business with low staff turnover, so when we do recruit it is vital that we not only get an individual who is technically capable but also someone who is a good fit to the business. “

” What impressed me about RG Consultancy was the time they took to understand our business and send candidates who covered both these aspects. “

” Whenever we have used RG the process has been quick, efficient and has produced great results for the company. “

” I would highly recommend RG Consultancy to anyone wanting a local business who knows and understands the market and will source high quality candidates that are right for your business. ”

” We are delighted with our recruitee and I would definitely use RG Consultancy again if the need arose ( which I hope it won’t). ”

” …I would just like to add that you and team at RG have been excellent throughout this whole process. Thank you! We would definitely work with your team again. ”

” If I could just say though that you and Eric have been fantastic, and I thank you for that. A completely different experience than I get with literally any other recruiter I have used. Keep doing what you do! ”

” I was looking to find a new challenge and role locally, I approached Eric regarding a role he was advertising and he managed to secure an interview within days. Everything was organised smoothly and efficiently and Eric was fully supportive throughout the whole interview process, giving me sound advice and information at all times. “

” He is highly professional and free of the superficiality that many other recruitment consultants provide. I would not hesitate to recommend him and would certainly use him as a client in the future. “

Who’s Who At RG

Eric Redfern

Eric Redfern - RG Consultancy

Managing Director

I have been in recruitment for all my life, starting as a junior in my uncle’s firm. I won’t tell you the date! At home we have a large family, with 6 grown children and our family dog Sweep, so it can be quite busy at home. I escape by running or by travelling whenever the business allows.

It has been great to see the business grow in recent years and I am really proud to work with such a wide range of professionals.

Sam Green-Redfern

Commercial Director

I began my recruitment journey in 1997 and apart from a short spell as a primary school teacher, have continued to work in the industry. Outside of work I enjoy walking with friends and am an avid reader. As Commercial Director my role is to oversee the RG brand and to ensure that systems and procedures are in place.

I consider myself profoundly lucky to work with such a committed team; people with an ethical and consultative approach do well here. It has been great to see the business, led by Eric, go from strength to strength in recent years and I am excited about where the coming years will take us.

Gemma Iannantuoni

Senior Consultant

I joined RG in 2022 after 14 years in Retail. I have 7 years experience behind me, as a manager and a big part of my role was recruitment. I absolutely loved getting to know new people, interviewing them and being the person who would offer them a new role.

I feel here at RG I can use my past experience and skills to really focus on recruitment as a main role and help people find their perfect job. I enjoy hiking and travelling around the UK and abroad. I’m half Italian and one of my favourite place to visit is Italy. I’m currently learning the language to become fluent in Italian. I enjoy experiencing new cultures, trying new food and I’m always looking for new places to visit.

Owen Vernon

Recruitment Consultant

I started my recruitment career in early 2022 and have loved every second of my journey so far! Coming from a sales background I imagined recruitment as being a walk in the park, oh boy was I wrong…

In pushing myself through a challenging learning curve, I have learned tonnes of new skills both in my day-to-day life and in my working life.

I love staying active outside of work mainly going to the gym and running. I am a massive sports fan in general and if I do give you a call try not to mention the word ‘football’, or it will be a lengthy discussion…
