Why work with us
Glasford International thinks, breathes and delivers quality. In our work, we make extremely careful distinctions. Prior to a search, we ensure we have got all the details right and we address all key issues: level of the position we are required to fill; team composition; scarcity of possible candidates; competencies needed; openness in which we can operate; our client's direct and indirect competitors; and the companies' strategy and forecasts.
We delve down deep, far beyond the surface. So with us, it’s never just 'someone' we happen to know. After all, you do not want mediocre or average; you want the best candidates in the market. Targeted, screened and tested for the right knowledge, experience and behaviour, and guaranteed by us.
Working exclusively on an assignment makes it possible to really dig into each and every project, from job definition, search and selection, to the final decision on who is hired and the implementation afterwards.
Would your best new manager not prefer to be contacted and interviewed by a consultant who has full knowledge of the position available, rather than just a recruiter who might be able to introduce him to some client?
We apply a systematic management consulting approach to all assignments, ensuring that qualified candidates are introduced to our clients within agreed timeframes. No matter how internationally dispersed a client might be, or how complex a cross-border assignment is, you will always be supported by your local client manager, who will ensure quality of service and that deadlines are met. We will also keep you continually informed of our progress, findings and results, from start to finish. This means total transparency and regular updates.
Experienced and committed
We are successful, thanks to the many years building and maintaining a strong business network, a close business relationship with clients and candidates, and a deep commitment to every new project. For optimum results, each project is assigned to a senior project manager, a single point of contact for you as a client.
Short term actions, long term results
For us, it is not just about filling a position; it is about creating success for our client, making teams stronger and offering amazing opportunities to candidates. So, although we are able to complete projects in a short space of time, it is all about the long-term success. That is why we always do a follow up to evaluate progress and opportunities with client and candidate.
We devote considerable effort in developing our own people through shared knowledge and experiences so that our clients can benefit from all of this. Our professional back-office systems are dynamic and resourceful. We have a flat management structure allowing easy, no-fuss access to senior management. Glasford is not bound by any remote, head-office, rigid philosophy. Consequently, each Glasford office is able to customise and execute a search plan that is specific to the unique demands of each customer, taking regional and local needs specifically into account.
International candidate database
In addition to all local networks and databases, we share one common international database enabling us to get in touch with a dispersed and scarce international pool of experienced managers.
