Glasford International is committed to the highest standards of quality of service. Prior to undertaking a search, we carry out careful preparations to ensure that we have all the necessary information. In the course of the search, we are thorough and meticulous in our coverage of the market and in our assessment of candidates. We work quickly and efficiently, but never superficially. We allocate the necessary resources to a search so that speed and quality of delivery are never compromised. Nothing is left to chance; everything is done to ensure the best possible result.
Experience and commitment
We owe our success to the many years that have been spent building and maintaining a strong business network, to a close and highly personalized relationships we enjoy with both clients and candidates and to the heart and soul commitment which we bring to every new project. For optimum results, a senior project manager is assigned to each project, so that our clients have a single point of contact who is accessible at all times.
By appointing a dedicated consultant to each assignment, we ensure that the client is regularly kept informed of progress. Through information sharing and close interaction with the client at every stage in the search process, we ensure that the search is fully on track and on schedule to be completed within the agreed timeframe.
We work on assignments on an exclusive retained basis. This enables us to dedicate the necessary time and resources to each assignment; and to maintain the level of professionalism which our clients have the right to expect. The principle of exclusivity ensures that we work with our clients as partners and avoids the risk that potential candidates will be approached by different search firms for the same position – a situation that does not reflect well on the client.
Short term actions
long term results
We understand that clients expect quick results to meet their immediate needs. And we can respond to that requirement rapidly and efficiently. But we also understand that the true measure of our success is our ability to contribute to the long term business results of our clients, by finding high potential candidates who will grow and flourish in our clients’ organizations. That is why we come back to our clients and candidates, to evaluate progress and opportunities. And that is why many of our client and candidate relationships have developed into long term partnerships.
We devote considerable resources to developing our people through sharing knowledge and experiences. . Our professional back-office systems incorporate state of the art technology to maximise the benefits of cross border synergies and knowledge management. We have a flat management structure allowing easy access to senior management. Glasford is not bound by any remote head office rigid philosophy. Consequently each Glasford office is able to customize and execute a search plan that is specific to the demands of each customer, taking regional and local needs into account.
