About Gleeson Recruitment Group

Gleeson Recruitment Group provide recruitment services to organisations including SMEs to large organisations across a wide range of sectors.

Gleeson Recruitment Group was set up in Birmingham by three directors in 2011; with over 50 years of combined experience, the Gleeson management team is one of the most established and well-regarded recruitment teams in the UK.

Originally as qualified accountants, they set out to use their existing links within the industry to build a business founded on three simple values: Trust; Transparency; and Integrity - everything they felt the recruitment industry lacked.

The organisation has seen rapid growth, going from just five to now over 70 employees. Obtaining talented, experienced staff, who embody the same values as they do is at the core of their approach. They measure consultants on their ability to build and maintain close relationships with clients and candidates.

Their offices are state of the art, with quirky meeting rooms, chill out spaces, the obligatory table tennis table and an on-site gym; not forgetting their four and a half day working week.
