Quality only becomes meaningful when it can be repeated – helping a candidate with their long-term career, or filling role-after-role for our clients. Our clients have the confidence that we will deliver – built on our strong relationships and focus on results.
We do the right thing – for our candidates’ careers and our clients’ long-term prospects. In fact, our entire business is built on lasting relationships and implicit trust, allowing us to reach further and deliver more.
With no external investors, we are judged by only two measures: the roles we find for our candidates, and the value we add to each client’s business. They define everything we do: at every turn we work to deliver excellent service, through the quality of our consultants and our transparent processes.
When we established Global Jobs Network, we wanted to be viewed as a Trusted Partner. So we set about building a very different kind of team.
We’re specialist recruiters
Our business is made up of strong, sector-specific teams. Our teams have extensive real world experience in their area of specialism, which informs everything they do. We give our people the space to find their areas of specialist interest, then support them to succeed.
We make promises we can keep
Reputation matters – to clients, to candidates and to us. We are motivated to always do the right thing and we make sure everyone involved knows what to expect from the process – with clear guidance on what we’ll do.
We focus entirely on recruiting permanent talent – something we achieve through a genuinely consultative approach. Our consultants listen to what is important, offer guidance on how to achieve it and work together with our clients and candidates to find the best fit for everyone.
We turn down the volume, and turn up the quality
To compile a list of candidates or career opportunities, we carefully sift from a broader pool. Whether you are a candidate or a client, you will receive a shortlist of options that is genuinely short. We are firm on this point: we see it as our role to streamline the process on your behalf.
We know our strengths
We are happy to take on assignments where we can bring our expertise to bear. We’ve worked hard to build our capability over many years, so we only accept assignments if we know we can add real value and deliver the required result for all concerned.
Focussed. Determined. Driven. These are the qualities that set our people apart. We then work with them to achieve the best performances and earnings of their career.
However, even this is only part of what makes us unique.
From the beginning, we have defined our own path – and set our own standards. All our growth has been organic and carefully planned, giving us the freedom to best serve our team, clients and candidates.
‘Good at life, good at work’ is at the very core of our business – we firmly believe each is interdependent on the other. We would go even further: achieving balance between career and personal life is the key to being successful.
That is why we have created a supportive and flexible environment, including executive development for all our people. This covers many areas, including:
All this is bolstered by coaching and support from the senior management team. And it carries through to the way we work every day – bringing a mature, collaborative approach to everything we do.
Don't just take our word for it. Hear from the people that really matter.
"Although I was approached as a target candidate and not a fee paying client, Gordon certainly made me feel like a valued client. I am always sensitive to people's level of focus on client service. In that regard, I found Gordon always courteous, a great listener, attentive and highly responsive with a quick and accurate turn around. Qualities we all aspire to have and wish to receive from any counterpart. Gordon clearly understood his client's needs very well and worked hard to help them achieve those needs. I found the whole process transparent, fair and efficient with Gordon navigating the sometimes conflicting needs and views in equitable and reconciliatory ways that ensured success."
I met Gordon 6 years ago when I was looking for international opportunities. Since then, he has been my trusted executive search advisor and has helped me to relocate to 2 international locations. When recruiting for my own team, I have found easiness and a fast response from Gordon as he possesses in-depth knowledge of the Big 4 and the international consulting way of working. His impressive portfolio of the senior relationships across many countries, combined with the personal and focused approach provide the outstanding recruitment service. Even in case of the countries or clients he has no direct relationships, Gordon, through extensive research and consistent pursuit was able fast to establish new liaisons and successfully deliver assigned to him.
It is a real pleasure to work with Gordon
I first met Gordon when he approached me about the potential role and later also worked with him when looking for members of my team. He was a great intermediary in the negotiation process, made the process easy and was able to match the needs and expectations of both sides. He understood the needs of the business, identified top talent within the market and ensured that the interview process run smoothly. He has good connections within various markets Globally, is able to provide a compelling preposition to initiate the first interview and makes sure the needs of the business are matched with skills of the candidate.
Before starting the search, Gordon invested a lot of time and energy in understanding our business and strategy. Working with him was easy; I felt we spoke the same language.
