Glen Callum Associates celebrate ongoing successes with international recruitment


Date: 13-Dec-2019

As many businesses try to ensure that they are at the forefront of international trading opportunities, there has become a heightened need for overseas recruitment.  

Specialist Recruiters, Glen Callum Associates, are successfully assisting clients with their quest to expand their footprint into global markets, by either recruiting staff to work for their businesses’ overseas, or by recruiting staff with language skills to work within their teams in the UK.

Glen Callum Associates, a recently joined Service Member of the IAAF, have over 21 years of recruiting knowledge within the automotive aftermarket, engineering and industrial sectors and have specifically expanded their international candidate base over the last five years by successfully sourcing staff from across the globe, as far afield as Australasia and Asia, whilst also covering many parts of Europe.

Whilst companies have seen the threat of Brexit deplete their teams of international workers, Glen Callum Associates have been busy advising and recruiting to fill these roles.   The specialist recruitment consultancy has also seen a growth in requests from companies outside the UK wanting to work with a UK recruiter and have worked on vacancies for companies based in Germany, Hungary and Austria. Likewise, UK companies are keen to work with an already proven UK based recruiter to source overseas staff and thus Glen Callum Associates can offer required industry knowledge and competitive rates to ensure full client satisfaction.

“Just a short note to say thank you for the excellent job with recruitment for our European Sales Manager position. I was impressed that you managed to find such a high-calibre selection of candidates within just 3 weeks of briefing you on our recruitment. I was concerned that it might be difficult for a UK-based company to locate suitable persons for what was quite a specific role, but you and your team did a great job. The shortlist of candidates that we subsequently interviewed were all very suitable for the position and it was a challenge to select the best candidate as they all performed well in interview. Thanks for your support and advice in filling this key position in a short timescale and we are very pleased with the candidate we finally selected for the role.”
Greg Harris, Sales Director

The GCA team are keen to continue to work with further companies looking to expand into global markets and are currently working on roles within Germany, Hungary, Austria, Japan, Australia, Republic of Ireland, France, Italy as well as their traditional UK based roles.
