In today’s fast-paced world, GAN really stands out by providing fantastic service and genuine human connection which is very rare. Working with my consultant has been a real pleasure and a much personalised experience.
My Consultant at GAN was without a doubt the most helpful and proactive recruitment professional I dealt with during my search to find an attractive and stimulating role in London. This was by no means an easy task in a post-Brexit environment.
We embarked on an ambitious global ERP implementation. GAN were engaged to help us resource the finance project team. They quickly understood our requirements, which was key in a fast-paced, business critical programme. They provided high-calibre candidates, well suited to our needs, in very short order. I would happily recommend them.
GAN are always my first stop when I’m looking for new recruits as they are head and shoulders above the rest. I always know that I will receive exceptional service.
I have known my consultant at GAN for a number of years, working with him as both a client and a candidate in that time. He is a breath of fresh air; an honest, straightforward recruitment professional with exceptional market knowledge and a strong focus on customer needs.
Working with Global has been a very pleasant experience. They have been attentive and understood our brief with authoritative feedback. The candidates presented demonstrated this understanding and saved us a lot of time.
My consultant at GAN was not just a breath of fresh air, but a whirlwind of activity, that blew away my notions of what good looks like for a recruiter. We had a brace of no nonsense, candid conversations about the role that set me in good stead for the challenge ahead.
Global Accounting has been the best recruitment agency I have used over the last 5 years. They intelligently filter candidates and then support them through the recruitment process.
I have used Global Accounting Network as both a candidate and a client, finding the service excellent on each occasion. My contact was consultative and knowledgeable, avoiding the hard sell and delivering actual solutions where other agencies had struggled.
Global Accounting Network has been successful in placing a number of hard to fill roles at in our organisation over the last few years. They add real value as a trusted recruitment partner with their thorough, honest and quality focused approach.
Founding Partner & CEO
Adrian is a recruitment veteran with some twenty years of experience in the industry. Despite this tenure, and despite recruitment being an emotional rollercoaster, his love for the industry persists. Adrian is responsible for the strategic direction of the business, driving results and delivering the vision. He can still make the occasional placement too, apparently.
He says, “I have had a lot of fun and experienced a lot of highs in my recruitment career. I am really proud of what Global Accounting Network has become, but we have a long way to go. The recruitment industry takes a lot of stick, much of it deserved, which makes me all the happier that we have built a value adding, professional and fun company”.
Tessa is an incredibly motivated and driven member of the team, utilising all her experience of supporting rapid growth in a range of companies to aid the development at GAN, although with perhaps marginally less enthusiasm than she attacked her early role as Cake Tester (yes, really). Tessa runs the operations of the business with an unwavering determination but always with a smile, covering her proverbial iron fist with a fluffy glove. It helps that she is a former thai boxing and crossfit champion, which means if we annoy her she can not only catch us, but can also kick us.
Senior Consultant, Permanent Services
After a prestigious career in creative work, David moved into financial recruitment, helping top finance talent find great roles in both the UK and Aus. As a veteran of the industry, he joined GAN because of the mature, open and honest environment, quickly becoming an integral part of a very collaborative team. Those of you who know him will know he is truly individual, and so enjoys the flexibility in approach we encourage at GAN, along with the pride we take in solving candidate and client needs. Outside of work you will often see him enjoying a range of pale ales or the occasional motorbike ride. Just never at the same time.
Consultant, Interim Services
Camilla is another example of what someone with the right attitude, aptitude and skills can do if they leave the anonymity of large corporate recruitment firms and joins a high growth boutique. Attracted to us because of our mature and honest environment, Camilla has found that everyone at GAN has a voice and ideas are welcomed. She now loves to use her knowledge and skills to help clients and candidates, with the best moments coming when you tell a candidate they have been offered the job of their dreams. Camilla’s energy and positivity is infectious, whether in the office, in one of our many socials, or running through mud in some crazy team challenge.
Founding Partner & Search Specialist
As Founding Partner David has been instrumental in the vision, strategy and development of GAN since day one. He and Adrian have worked together since 2004 and his energy, positivity and unwavering commitment to results made him the perfect partner for the firm. He simply loves to recruit; an attitude that rubs off on all around him and gets him unparalleled feedback from his candidates. He now uses his expertise to help finance executives get the best career moves available and to deliver top talent to interesting clients, whilst also dJ’ing at top Techno venues worldwide.
Zane has a long and successful track record of taking care of demanding people, initially as a trainer and senior therapist for a luxury skin care business and latterly catering to the whims of recruiters and accountants. Over her years with GAN, Zane has become an invaluable member of the team, consistently looking for ways to improve things, and support the high performing consultants as they strive to help as many candidates and clients as possible. She runs the sales support function with the same military precision with which she manages her exercise and diet regimes, making her a champion for us as well as a champion body builder. We couldn’t do what we do as well as we do, without her.
Head of Permanent Services
Elliot is a fantastic example of a skilled and disciplined recruiter and recruitment leader, who get’s huge satisfaction out of helping colleagues, candidates and clients achieve their goals. After a number of years in large recruitment firms, Elliot wanted to be a larger part of a smaller business and joined GAN because he really saw his part in our vision. As Head of Perm, he leads and nurtures a high calibre team of recruiters and likes nothing more than to see them grow and develop. He says it’s the best job he ever had. Much better than the unnamed corporate recruitment firm we will simply call Michael Sage.
Matt joined Global Accounting Network at board level to work closely with Adrian in delivering UK and international growth. To be hired at this level in GAN, he had to have had a fantastic pedigree in a career littered with high performing teams, strong business results and delivering exceptional client and candidate solutions, and he will gladly regale you with this over a pint. Since joining Matt has added significant value to the team, strengthening the business and working with the board to deliver a really strong vision for the future.
He says, “Leaving a large, well-established business to join Global was a big decision and not one I took lightly, but the vision, attitudes and values I encountered when I met the board really did grab me. Now I am here, I genuinely believe we have something different from the competition and I am massively excited about the next phase of the journey.”

After 10 years of film financing and production, Hugh decided that he needed more glamour in his life, joining GAN to recruit interim finance professionals. After many years in the business, his network develops daily by referrals and recommendations, a compliment to his knowledge and the results he delivers. He revels in the variety of the people he gets to help and the ability to solve genuine business problems, often with really innovative solutions.

Andrew is one of the most diligent and professional recruiters we have ever worked with, taking a huge amount of pleasure and satisfaction from doing a fantastic job. Andrew joined us as an intern, not even really knowing what recruitment was. He has now been an integral part of helping the company grow from 5 people to a highly renowned international firm, getting several promotions in the process. Andrew now uses his expertise and knowledge to help finance leaders and executives find great career opportunities, a development that is testament to his dedication.
Senior Consultant, Interim Services
Christian came to GAN after a year in South Africa as a Commodities Trader, referred to Adrian for both his rugby skills and his potential in recruitment. When he joined the business, we were 6 people round one bank of desks and Chris’s dedication, hard work and drive to deliver has played a key part in helping us grow consistently every year. Chris is a relationship builder, taking the time to get to know his clients and candidates well-enough to offer genuine solutions to real problems. He loves the buzz and urgency of interim recruitment and you’ll often find him in the office late at night because his client needs someone “yesterday”.
Consultant, Permanent Services
Sports enthusiast and qualified personal trainer Jason came to us after enjoying success in transactional finance recruitment. It’s no surprise given his background, that he was able to turn the discipline and drive needed for high level sports training into a recipe for success in recruitment, and he has been able to carve out a really strong network in the mid to senior finance talent pool. Jason is the perfect choice of consultant for anyone looking for a proactive recruiter who will go out and help you achieve your career goals. Just don’t arm wrestle.
Head of Interim Services
Seasoned recruiter and interim services expert Alex has a strong background building slick, customer-centric contract recruitment businesses. The breadth of his experience prior to GAN made him a great choice for taking our interim division to the next level, a vision he really bought into. He is now setting about channelling the phenomenal energy and dedication of the team to build out our capability. Outside of work he has a number of children and spends his time corralling and leading them. Recruitment must be a home from home.
Consultant, Permanent Services
With a Masters in Engineering, Bradley is almost too intelligent to be a recruiter. Almost. He joined us after a number of years in a large corporate recruitment firm, ostensibly because we offer free beer, but in reality because of the strong collaborative culture which pulls together to find the best solutions for even the most challenging candidates and clients. He also specified the supportive and experienced management team and strong training, but we think this might be because it was them he was giving this bio to. Bradley works with some really interesting clients, with a particularly strong network in property and construction.
Tabitha recently joined GAN as a Non-Exec Director, bringing a wealth of PLC experience to our rapidly growing business.

Semi-professional cricketer Luke came to GAN after a successful period recruiting into Insolvency and Restructuring roles. He was attracted by the professionalism and calibre of the team, along with the diversity of clients and roles. Specialising in mid-level roles offering significant career development opportunities, Luke has quickly found his feet and thankfully he is much better at recruitment than he ever was at cricket.
