January 2017 Newsletter

Welcome Back

2017 has started with a bang as the jobs keep coming…

It’s fair to say that 2016 was a solid year recruitment-wise as the world survived Brexit-vote, Trump-vote and a string of high profile deaths, more than seems “usual”. The demand for candidates is definitely outweighing the supply as clients are constantly looking for the “upper quartile” talent.

We are confident our market knowledge and breadth of offering (from AP/AR to Finance Director and everything in between) keeps us well stocked to support any opportunities that require your attention. Whether you are a client, a candidate or both in 2017 – rest assured; you will find your financial recruitment, expertly handled.

2017 Salary Guide

For those of you who are curious as to the state of the market, please take a look at our updated Salary Guide. We feel this is fair guidance and comes from a number of research sources, coupled with our extensive experience in the market.

A big development for greenwellgleeson is the inaugural inclusion of our salary guide for Transactional/Shared Service professionals. The development of our Transactional recruitment division has really diversified the greenwellgleeson service offering over the last 3 years. The salary guide reflects our experience in the market and research into the wider Midlands market.

Come and get involved

As you can see from the below, people are at the heart of greenwellgleeson’s service offering and we repay those fantastic people with opportunities that they’ll enjoy and thrive from in a fast paced, friendly and rewarding environment.

As we continue to enjoy year on year growth and success, we are now looking to add to our ranks internally. If you are interested in a career in recruitment, or feel you know somebody with a relevant skillset, we would be keen to hear more. Please send details to our Managing Director Rob Lawton, or call through on 0121 233 9911.

Ryan Giggs eat your heart out…

Many of you may know our “one club man” Duncan Wise through your dealings with greenwellgleeson, as a client, as a candidate or just as an urban myth. Having been here for over 19 years now, he bleeds the familiar Navy Blue of greenwellgleeson and knows the organisation, her dealings and her reputation in the business community right to the core.

With these credentials, it comes as no surprise that Duncan has been given a specialist opportunity to drive our exposure in the market, in his new capacity as Business Development Director. Not only does this allow Duncan to thrive off of his strengths, it presents an opportunity to bring in fresh blood to the fold at greenwellgleeson (see above).

Managing Director; Rob Lawton had this to say about the change:

“As owner I am absolutely thrilled Duncan is taking up the role of Business Development Director for greenwellgleeson. Duncan is the longest serving member of out tight-knit team and in each of his 20 years here has married the highest levels of integrity with effort and passion. This in turn has materially enhanced both the performance and reputation of the business and its brand.

His retained knowledge of thousands of finance professionals that we have engaged with is truly market leading. Going forward, the freedom he will enjoy to solely focus on business development will allow him to engage with even more professionals in both the accountancy & wider business community. I am certain this will directly benefit the careers and business interests of many, many more stakeholders for years to come.”

I’m sure you’ll join all of us in wishing Duncan well on his new adventure.

GG Social 2017

2016 saw the launch of our GG Social events and we are pleased to report that we are back in 2017 with a bang, with plans to make our events bigger and better than before. A pick of last year’s events are below. We plan to replicate these in a big way, as well as add to our offering.

– Cheltenham Gold Cup Day
– Aegon Tennis
– England vs Pakistan Test @ Edgbaston
– Comedy nights @ The Glee Club
– Darts @ The Wolverhampton Civic
– Casino Night
– The Full Monty @ The Birmingham Hippodrome
– Birmingham Christmas Markets

We are in the process of putting together a calendar of events for 2017 to include similar events to last year but also looking to add on new ideas too. Obviously we only have limited spaces on all of our events and interest was very high last year.

If you would like to be included on our GG Social correspondence please let us know which types of events you would be interested in. We also welcome suggestions for new events.

As a great opportunity to network in a relaxed and informal environment, these events fill up fast, so register your interest early.

Thank you to all who joined us on one or several of the above events last year. We hope to see you again this year with some new faces…
