Gleeson Recruitment is collaborative in nature.

KPI's…they're not really our thing.

We like to stick to an absolute MAXIMUM of one: the target of how many meetings you make. There is no counting cold calls or totting up how many CVs have been sent out to clients. You don't have to believe us, but we're telling the truth.

When we meet a client, who's looking for to fill role regardless of sector, we'll introduce them to all divisions (we don't just fling them randomly from branch to branch like hot potatoes). More of an active listening to their needs/using our expert knowledge kind of deal.

But how - we hear you ask in alarm - could this be? A recruitment firm without KPI's? What kind of a depraved establishment are you running? What next? NO DESKS? NO CLOTHES? Easy…we've got oodles of desks, and the clothing policy is smart/casual (just to stress this: no clothes in the office is way, WAY too casual).

Has this done us a disservice? Well, you tell us. Other than our team reporting some curious side-effects - weird talk of being happy at work, that sort of stuff - we've placed with roundabout 400 companies over the last year. We've also just won the Downtown in Business Recruitment Company of the Year Award *insert casual hair flip* but you know, whatever. It's cool. We didn't all literally weep with joy, or anything.

Anyhow, enough waffle - you've got the gist, we hope. Let's talk being a Recruitment Leader/Recruitment Manager for The Gleeson Group.

Whilst our established Finance and Pharmaceuticals are fully functional with sector leading teams, we are now expanding our functional to mirror leading functions within our Birmingham office.

We are interested in meeting experienced recruiters / team leaders with entrepreneurial qualities and networks in the following Thames Valley / South East markets:

  • Marketing & Digital
  • Built Environment
  • Engineering
  • Manufacturing
  • IT/Technology
  • Procurement & Supply Chain
  • Human Resources
  • Executive Search (any sector considered)

This is not a cold start up opportunity but an extension to established division and an opportunity to be grow your team as part of a rapidly expanding and exciting business

So why is it worth applying?

Brand - Gleeson was set up with the vision of creating a business founded on trust, transparency, and integrity.

Culture & Environment - Our people have built a unique culture based upon support and trust, flexibility and collaboration and being family-oriented and fun! Because of this we can attract the best people to our business, who want to work in an adult environment and have a good time whilst doing so. The offices are modern, with top of the range facilities with a great view of the prestige Forbury Gardens!

Autonomy - We typically recruit experienced recruiters who don't need to be measured by KPIs like call times, CVs etc and are looking for the respect and autonomy to run their own pods.

Support - we have started an incredible journey and keen for people to be part of that. We are passionate about recruiting and about developing people and helping them to be the best they can be.

Experience - We've done this before! All our new divisions have been started by experienced recruiters looking for a new 'home' where they can grow something special.

Referrals - To date more than 80% of our workforce (now up to 70) have come through recommendation to come and work here which says a lot.

Of course, we appreciate you may be in a 'safe place' right now, however, rarely is there a chance to build something special which you can make your own with the backing, investment and support from experienced leaders.
