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”.
Founding Partner & Search Specialist
David Leslie, or DL as he is ubiquitously known in the company, might very well be the hardest working man in recruitment. Relentlessly positive, incredibly results focused and with a love of making placements, David has built a phenomenal career recruiting solely in the finance space. The praise he gets from his candidates and clients alike illustrate his value.
He says, “We knew starting a recruitment company in a recession was going to be a real challenge, but we found people were really receptive to the candidate focused model we developed. We always said if we built a company we were proud of, that people enjoyed working for and with, and that really focused on delivering solutions, we’d have something special. We’ve done that and now we want more of it.”
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.”
Business Manager, Perm Services
Andrew joined GAN as an intern, post law degree, and very quickly showed great natural ability as a recruiter. The inquiring mind from his law degree, combined with his genuine pride in delivering a great service, means Andrew has always been able to differentiate himself from the recruitment hordes. He is now Business Manager on our Permanent Division, working solely across senior and leadership positions.
He says, “Since joining the company, I've progressed from Intern to Resourcer to Consultant and now Business Manager. I've seen my role and responsibilities grow and develop each year, and it's been a brilliant environment to constantly challenge myself and to pull me outside of my comfort zone. Now coming up to my fourth year with the company, I’ve learnt huge amounts and have personally developed massively in that time.”
Director, Interim Services
Hugh is a relationship builder like no-one we have ever seen. He spent a number of years in LA, running a film financing and production business, driving around in a convertible in the sun, living the dream, and he gave it all up to become a recruitment consultant. Yes, we know… He joined GAN as a trainee and within 3 years progressed to run our high growth interim division.
He says, “I’d never considered recruitment, never really even thought about anything outside of the film industry, so when someone I trusted referred me to GAN, I went along out of curiosity. I have to say I’ve never looked back. I’ve progressed really quickly and absolutely love the company and the team. I don’t miss LA at all…”
Non-Exec Director and Founder
Marcus and Adrian have been friends and business associates for over 10 years, collaborating on numerous projects. A trained Corporate Financier by trade, Marcus launched Adoreum Partners in 2009, with the aim of connecting HNW and UNHW with investment opportunities, luxury brands and growth businesses. As our self-proclaimed best business winner, Marcus brings a phenomenal network to GAN, whist also providing key business advice.
Marcus says, “When Adrian told me he was launching GAN, I had no hesitation in investing and becoming part of the business. Since then, the team have helped loads of my contacts find finance talent and it’s been a lot of fun being part of the company.”
