10 Year Anniversary Newsletter
It gives me great pleasure to welcome you all to the ten year anniversary Global Career Newsletter.
I can’t quite believe that it was ten years ago, on 22nd October 2002 that Sarah Roe and I launched Global Career Company from our home 642-832 office in London. On the day of our launch we signed a graduate recruitment campaign for East, West and Central Africa, the first Global Career Company Summit took place the following April with 7 companies and an amazing 2,500 candidates applying to attend.
Fast forward ten years and we now have over 40 team members based in our London offices with associates in Europe, Asia and across Africa. We hold an average of 15 recruitment summits per year and have recruited internationally for over 400 companies across the globe. Each of our team members is passionate about what we do here at Global Career Company, we over 20 languages spoken in the office and their local market knowledge is incredible.
‘It is extremely interesting to note how the global economic crisis has left Africa and Asia mainly unscathed. The markets have emerged stronger than ever in these continents and we have noticed an uplift in interest from our Russian 642-902 and Central and Eastern European clients, with our services once more being requested and used in these areas.’
We have teams travelling ‘in market’ every month of the year, visiting clients and candidates, making presentations to universities, associations and business schools and building up our globalised network that now stands at over 230,000 contacts.
I am now looking to grow the business exponentially and we are recruiting aggressively for talent that can help build Global Career Company internationally. In the next year we are looking to open offices in South Africa and Hong Kong, growing the business by 30 – 40%.
Lastly, I would like to thank our clients and our candidates, who have been with Global Career Company every step of the way. We hope that we have provided a standard of service to you that we pride ourselves on and that will help you build either a fantastic career or will drive your business forward making you an employer of choice.
