Removing the moniker of client or candidate, Global Resourcing treats every professional who engages with the team as a valued customer, with a talent solution tailored to their need. The team invests heavily in being the most customer centric business in their market, offering a highly consultative approach that’s set up for long-term success.
Whether it’s for customers or for the team, the culture of the organisation is uniquely designed to bring opportunities to all, offering flexible, bespoke solutions, advice and continuous learning, and insights that enable people to thrive in their careers.
How would you describe the culture you're aspiring to build?
We are on a mission to create the kind of customer-centric culture that is unfortunately all too rare a thing in our industry. Whether it is removing the distinction between clients and candidates, or treating our colleagues as customers, putting others at the very heart of what we do is our most fundamental principle. This helps to drive working practices and values that are totally inclusive, providing equality of opportunity and positive experiences for all.
We have created a community of like-minded professionals without the hierarchy - just a flat structure populated with mutual trust and commitment to both individual and collective outcomes. People in the Global Resourcing family have complete autonomy over their roles and are trusted to create fantastic solutions for our customers while constantly striving for continuous improvement. Unlike other recruitment companies, we aren’t focused on KPIs, working hours, or micro-managing; we treat everyone like adults and put our customers first, which supports a high-performing culture that has honesty and respect at its core.
Individual and collective learning and development have also always been at the heart of our culture, we encourage the team to read, watch, and listen, before sharing new learnings as a collective. Equity, diversity, and inclusion also matter to us just as much as they matter to our clients, meaning our track record in these areas is unsurpassed. We don’t always publicise the work that we do, but our delivery in these areas and the growing diversity of our own team are testaments to this.
We love the work that we do in partnerships with our fantastic clients and our passion is palpable. We will always strive to go further for both our customers and our people - because without feeling both totally and utterly valued, we would cease to exist.
Above all, we work hard to ensure that our people feel trusted and proud of their work. They are empowered to make their own decisions but encouraged to work communicatively and collaboratively. It is imperative that the team know that they have the support and top cover when it’s needed, allowing them to push themselves without fear of mistakes. This drives our constant advancement as a business through creativity and innovation. As business owners, we don’t have all the answers, but as a team, there is a very good chance that we do.
What makes Global Resourcing a special place to work?
What sets us apart as an exceptional workplace is a powerful combination of factors. Our robust reward structure, a testament to our success, is made possible by the presence of the right individuals in our team and their belonging to a group that feels more like a family than a business. The synergy of talent, dedication, and drive has propelled us to incredible success, as our customers very quickly understand how seriously we take their needs and feelings.
In our unique workplace, trust forms the cornerstone of our environment. We empower our team with the autonomy to excel without a focus on KPIs and micro-management, allowing each individual to thrive without the burden of constant KPI monitoring. This dynamic blend of factors makes our company a special place to work, and our commitment to diversity and inclusion ensures that every member of our "work family" feels valued, respected, and supported.
The type of people who thrive at Global Resourcing are professionals who always put the customer first through unwavering industry-leading service standards. Our successful team is highly self-motivated, honest, and collaborative, and never afraid to ask for help and support as soon as it is needed.
We don’t shy away from mistakes, as long as we learn from them; we have a real family feel so those joining us should feel like they’re part of something different - a place where we genuinely care about our people, our business, and our customers.
