Oliver Hayes

                    I am Oliver Hayes and I am the Director of Chicago & the Midwest for Phaidon International. I graduated from LJMU with a BSc Hons Forensic Science & Biological Anthropology and have been with the company for 7 years where I have worked in 3 different locations (London, NYC and Chicago). I started my career at Selby Jennings and have worked across a number of industries including Investment Banking, Transaction Banking and Private Equity. After two successful years in London, I was lucky enough to have been one of the first members of the business on the ground in the US and to assist in its rapid growth. I now oversee multiple brands covering the Midwest region as a Director, where I am a strategic leader and expert micro-specialist recruiter across many verticals.

I have covered both contingency and retained recruitment searches, and I offer our clients an industry leading marketing driven operations, as well as a search and selection service to ensure Phaidon accesses the best and most relevant pool of candidates for every assignment. My team consists of experienced, specialist consultants and a dedicated research team that have excellent coverage across the geographical region.

I have deep expertise running all types of searches from entry level all the way through to business leaders, which has given me the knowledge to advise both candidates and clients at the highest level. I have built a very extensive network of diverse clients that are now some of our US key accounts, which has given me great reach into the markets that we cover in the Midwest.
