International tech recruitment specialist Global Resourcing has announced its move to become part of Global Resourcing Group, latterly headed by Greg Harris as CEO, who bought the business in 2012.
In addition to the already highly successful 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 firm’s longstanding recruitment expertise in technology, to now formally include a wider corporate services delivery capability and has also led to the appointment of multiple new directors to strengthen its leadership team.
Rob Johnson, recently promoted into the position of managing director, leads the team of over 30 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 specialist, 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-focused company within the Group.
Rob Johnson, Managing Director at Global Resourcing, said: “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.”
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.
