This is a 360 recruitment consultant position

16 years ago, Phaidon International was a brand new company founded by a one-man band from his own bedroom in London. Today, we couldn't be more proud as we are able to finally announce we have hit the milestone of growing to 1000 staff globally.

From one flat in London we have grown into an international business with offices based in the UK, Europe, the United States and in Asia. Not only we are planning to open more offices every year, but we also managed to open our latest office in Los Angeles in 2020 in the middle of a pandemic.

How have we been able to do that is simple: thanks to every single person that makes this company. Ambitious graduates start with us every month around the world excited to be part of a fast growing company driven by its core values: ability, character and loyalty. Our CEO also started as a graduate just over 10 years ago, and we take pride in our organic growth model and strive to promote from within, whenever possible. We believe in providing a platform for people to progress internally within the organisation helping them achieve their personal & professional goals. Phaidon International offers the best platform to fuel your biggest ambitions, whether that be relocating internationally or progression into management.
