Phaidon International in the UK

Opening in London in 2004, Phaidon International launched the Selby Jennings brand, which recruits exclusively within the Financial Services.

Following the success of Selby Jennings, the UK HQ expanded quickly and opened three new brand offerings. DSJ Global launched in 2008 to service Corporate Leadership recruitment within STEM organisations. In 2012, EPM Scientific launched to offer recruitment solutions across the Life Sciences industry. Glocomms swiftly followed in 2013, specialising in Technology recruitment. Our newest addition, LVI Associates, covering the Infrastructure sector, opened in 2016. 

In little over a decade, the London business has grown to 5 brands and approximately 250 employees. As the largest office, our UK consultants cover markets and industries around the world. 

We have won many accolades for our work, including The Sunday Times Best Companies to Work For (2016), the prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade (2017) and the Most Innovative Recruitment Company in the UK (2018).

As we continue to grow internationally, the London office will remain a vital part of the Phaidon International story.

"Phaidon International has been instrumental to me in terms of my personal growth and career path since joining in 2016. Through a strong and supportive leadership team and mentors, my financial skill set and competence have developed each year. I'm responsible for the Management Accounts for our European offices. The mixture of studying for the ACCA and the exposure to all financial aspects of the business means I can see a long-term career pathway for me here at Phaidon."

Meet Alex Hayes Associate Director

“I joined Phaidon International five years ago. In such a short time, I have progressed from a Graduate Consultant to an Associate Director. 

I truly believe I was only able to achieve such fast career progression because of the training and support provided on a daily basis. It has allowed me to drive my career to suit my strengths. 

In my new role, I can mentor consultants with what I have learned to help them be even more successful.”





Meet Bethan Williams - Sales Manager

“When leaving university I had never heard of recruitment. What really drew me to the industry was that your career and development were in your hands. I was able to take control of my future from day one.

There are no limitations if you are willing to learn, get your head down and work hard; the management team will trust your decisions.

I have been given the chance to build an area, which is now one of the highest performing teams in the business and has tripled in size since I started it. This is why I came to Phaidon International.”
