About Gleeson Recruitment Group

About us

Gleeson Recruitment Group was set up by the three Directors in 2011, with the vision of creating a business founded on trust, transparency and integrity – everything they felt the industry lacked.

Since then we have grown with our success, and have branched out by obtaining talented and experienced staff who embody the same values around customer service. We now cover Accountancy & Finance, Built Environment, Engineering & Manufacturing, Human Resources, IT, Marketing, Office Support, Procurement & Supply Chain, Transformation and Executive Search, as well as offering a range of HR services such as psychometric testing and profiling and outplacement provision. The business has grown to be a true talent partner.

Our ultimate aim is, and always has been, the development of mutually beneficial, long-lasting relationships and we have a genuine conviction to deliver the right result.

- Average 11 years' industry experience
- Genuinely consultative, we won't try and sell you something you don't need!

I have a long-term working relationship with Gleeson’s Engineering & Manufacturing and Procurement & Supply Chain divisions. Over the course of the last 5 years this has evolved into a relationship with a range of discipline-specific leaders and recruiters across Finance & Accounting, Human Resources and Information Technology.

Gleeson have provided a consistent service level across their areas of specialism, reflecting their strategy to hire only the best, most experienced consultants in the region.
