Kevin Norris


With over 30 years experience in the recruitment market, Kevin has been continually successful. After being a HGV driver, Kevin moved to recruitment and established GBN Associates in 1989. Kevin has managed sustained growth over recent years and continues to be an integral part of the day to day operations of the company.

Established in 1989 and still owned by one of the original directors, we’re a highly experienced recruitment consultancy operating successful branches in Grays and Basildon.

We provide local candidates with relevant training and guidance, before finding roles to suit their qualifications and experience. We work with businesses across Essex, including major national supply chain companies, clothing distribution centres, parcel delivery companies, hospitals, retail outlets, and an array of production/assembly operations.

Our friendly, highly qualified team actively recruits across the Industrial, Commercial, Driving and Care sectors, and has a reputation for delivering an exceptional and professional service. With all our consultants possessing an in-depth knowledge of these sectors, we are well-equipped to advise clients and candidates alike. We also have specialist consultants who are recognised for their expertise in a particular sector. So, whether you’re a business or a candidate, we can tailor our services to suit your requirements.

Bill Coomer

Area Manager

Bill started with us in 2004 and over the last ten years has supplied thousands of applicants to hundreds of companies all across Thurrock and into the east end of London.

Bill has supplied staff into the Industrial and driving sectors as well as overseeing our Commercial and Care divisions. Bill has and still supplies many local blue chip companies with internationally recognisable names

Of the many unusual requests for staff, the stand out one was for a temporary operative to guard the gate of a client based in the countryside, to stop wild horses entering the premises.
