Phaidon International in the USA

Phaidon International expanded from our London Headquarters to New York City in early 2013 under the guidance of, then Director and now CEO, Harry Youtan. 

Under Harry’s guidance, the business grew from just 7 employees in New York to a company listed as a Top 4 Fastest-Growing Staffing Firm across the Nation in 2015 and 2016. The organization expanded faster than any other British Recruitment company had in recent US history growing out teams across all 5 recruitment brands in the Phaidon International group, including Selby Jennings, DSJ Global, EPM Scientific, Glocomms, and LVI Associates.  

Following this exponential success, Harry was promoted to CEO and named as one of the Top 100 most influential people in the North American Staffing in late 2016, at the age of 30.

Today, the USA operations follow the leadership of Kieran Behan, Managing Director, and have expanded across 5 further offices in Boston, Chicago, Dallas, San Francisco, and Charlotte, in just over 5 years since launching in the US. 

Approximately 300 people now work across the USA within all 5 of the Phaidon International brands, and we have been repeatedly named a National Best and Brightest Company to Work For. As we continue to grow, there are a number of opportunities to join any of our 6 offices, and to become a part of the Phaidon International story. Whatever your background, if you're driven, and ambitious, and excited by the thought of working in a buzzing office surrounded by your peers, there's a place here for you.

Meet Brandon Garber - Principle Consultant

Since joining about a year and a half ago, my experience at Phaidon International has been fantastic.

Being part of a supportive, yet competitive culture where I am surrounded by like-minded, driven individuals, constantly pushes me to be better both professionally and personally.

It is for these very reasons that I have been so successful over the past year and have earned the opportunity to grow and build new business ventures within the firm.

Meet Abbey Challgren - Internal Recruiter

β€œA year after graduating from university I made a career move into recruitment and fell in love with the job, more specifically with Phaidon International, immediately. From the first meeting I’ve felt welcomed, supported and most importantly, challenged by peers and management.

Aside from the amazing culture, the potential for career progression here - be it a vertical or horizontal move – makes it clear that you can enjoy a successful career here whichever role you perform, and one that you can be extremely proud of.  

I’ve since moved to our Internal Recruitment team to help grow Phaidon and cannot wait to share our unique place in the industry with entry-level candidates looking for their first role, all the way to experienced individuals looking for a better platform for their career!”
