Gleeson Recruitment Group was set up in Birmingham by three Directors in 2011; with over 50 years of combined experience, the Gleeson management team is one of the most established and well-regarded recruitment teams in the UK. Originally Qualified Accountants, they set out to use their existing links within the industry to build a business founded on three simple values – Trust, Transparency and Integrity – everything they felt the recruitment industry lacked.
Over the last seven years, we’ve grown from 5 employees to over 70. We have expanded our range of divisions to ensure that clients and their wider business needs are supported, all the while endeavouring to keep our boutique-level service intact. Obtaining talented, experienced staff, who embody the same values as we do, is at the core of our approach. We measure consultants on their ability to build and maintain close relationships with clients and candidates – which means no cold calls, no unsolicited CVs and no beatings with the infamous KPI stick.
In many respects, you only need to look at the partnerships we’ve formed over the years to define who we are and what we care about. We’re interested in real people who value integrity as a basis for creating lasting relationships, and we’ve worked hard over the years to earn the respect of clients and candidates alike. Thanks to this and the dedication of our industry-leading team of consultants, we have developed an extensive network of loyal contacts.
Where Gleeson are headed...
Where the landscape for recruiting and retaining talented employees is increasingly competitive, and high-profile companies are fighting hard for top talent, it is vital to work with a partner that is proactive and innovative.
We are still on a journey. We have expanded our service offering in order to further support our clients with their wider business needs. The service you receive from each of our divisions feels like a boutique, but we have grown to become a major player in the Midlands and Thames Valley.
Our aim for the future is to continue to launch new service lines that have the same high quality and ethical standard that the rest of the business has – enabling us to deliver more services to both present and future clients.
