Intro to Phaidon International

Who are we?

Phaidon International is a global recruitment company that was established in 2004 in London. Our Founder and then-CEO, started the business in his bedroom, beginning what would become an exciting story of international growth. Since then, Phaidon International has come to be recognised globally as an industry leader in delivering micro-specialist talent solutions to some of the largest, most innovative and prominent institutions in the world. That means we matchmake rare and incredibly talented people with world-leading organisations.

Phaidon International is the parent company of six leading specialist recruitment agencies that operate across six key market verticals.

What do recruiters do?

Recruitment is like matchmaking - but for careers! We help people and companies find each other and grow. We focus on providing this service to exceptional professionals, who have spent years honing their skills and experience, and to world-leading organisations looking for specialist talent. As a full-desk recruiter, you’ll work directly with our clients and candidates to manage the entire talent acquisition process for both parties.

​What if I have no recruitment experience?

Phaidon's Learning & Development department is one that we are proud of. Starting from day 1, you will be supported with one-to-one coaching throughout your career with us. We put a great deal of effort into developing our junior staff of today into our leaders of tomorrow. Whether you want to have a career that takes you international, gives you a quick route to management or funds the lifestyle that you've always dreamed of, we offer the best platform to fuel your biggest ambitions.
