Global boost management team
International recruitment specialist Global Resourcing, announces its move to become part of Global Resourcing Group, latterly headed by Greg Harris as CEO, who bought the business in 2012. The formation of the Group follows the established strategy of having a niche focus, by delivering a broad range of recruitment solutions via independent specialist entities.
In addition to the already highly successful technology recruiter Global Resourcing, the Group includes two new specialist companies, ComRisk Associates, focusing on compliance and risk, and ForbesHunt, specialising in accountancy and finance. This growth widens the longstanding recruitment expertise in technology, to now formally include a wider corporate services delivery capability and has meant the appointment of multiple new Directors to strengthen its leadership team.
Based in the heart of Croydon’s urban regeneration district and the fast-growing Croydon Tech City cluster, Global Resourcing was founded 21 years ago and is a specialist in the vendor, digital, data and tech sectors. A key factor behind the firm’s success is its track record in recruiting highly specialised digital and vendor technology candidates to a global client base.
Rob Johnson, recently promoted into the position of Managing Director, leads the team of over thirty specialist consultants at Global Resourcing. Rob joined the company in 2013 as Sales Director, with over a decade of success in the recruitment industry, as part of a major growth and change initiative.
To further strengthen Global Resourcing’s leadership, Sarah Luxford, a founding member of the Tech Talent Charter, co-founder of Tech London Advocates’ Women in Tech advocacy group and Croydon Tech City, joins the company as a Director. Sarah was previously a search specialist and diversity advisor, working with clients to identify and source the most diverse talent possible to resolve their emergent technology challenges.
Global Resourcing is also pleased to welcome Phil Walsh to the Board in the role of Sales Director. Phil was previously Head of Contract Recruitment and originally joined Global Resourcing as a trainee over a decade ago, where he has built a global reputation as a leading technology recruiter, whilst supporting wider growth and change across the business.
Complementing the tech specialist recruiter, is ForbesHunt, the group’s accountancy and finance recruitment business, based in St Albans and headed by Jack Cole. Jack was most recently a Managing Consultant at leading recruiter Robert Walters and brings a wealth of recruitment and management experience, not only to ForbesHunt but the wider Group.
ComRisk Associates, the group’s London based compliance and risk management specialists, is now headed by former Global Resourcing Senior Manager, Matthew Vesty. Following a successful period at Global Resourcing, Matthew is now using his expertise and knowledge to develop this new and niche focussed company within the Group.
As a Group, Global Resourcing prides itself on being a supportive business and the company enjoys particularly high staff retention rates, with tenures commonly in excess of 10 years. It will continue to offer support and opportunity to those working for them now or in the future, through a tailored personal development programme with the potential to lead to a Senior Management or Director level role. All of the businesses within the Group are growing and Greg is seeking likeminded individuals to join him on this journey.
“The foundation of the Group is to afford opportunity to individuals within our businesses and to empower them to achieve their goals within the recruitment industry. We do this by offering a supportive and collaborative peer group, which has a wealth of collective knowledge, drive and ambition. We have a great team of expert recruitment and business professionals within the group and I am proud of their achievements to date and excited about what we can achieve in the future,” says Greg Harris, CEO at Global Resourcing Group.
“We have always concentrated on supporting clients with skills in areas where the demand for top talent out-strips supply and it’s the global talent pools that our consultants have that differentiate us. Whether it’s access to a specialist technology skillset or the largest collaborative group of women in tech, our networks give us the ability to solve an array of recruitment problems. I truly believe that this is the reason our clients have come back to us again and again over the years,” says Rob Johnson, Managing Director at Global Resourcing.
