A Career in Recruitment

We believe that servicing our clients and candidates is not about meeting expectations. It's about exceeding them.

We know our people are our greatest asset and our business leaders of tomorrow. Did you know our CEO, Harry Youtan, started out as a graduate? Not everyone’s definition of success is the same, but we can help you define what success looks like to you. Alongside like-minded individuals, you can forge your path and the future of the business. We consistently invest in your ability to ensure you have the tools needed to achieve your career goals. We understand that sometimes what you studied doesn’t have to be the path you follow.

    ​What I love most about working at Phaidon is that you get as much out as you put in. I wasn’t sure what exactly I wanted to do after I graduated, but I always knew I wanted to do something that would allow me to be in complete control of my own success.After I interviewed here back in September 2017, I could tell Phaidon would provide me with that, but now I can proudly say it’s given me so much more. In less than 2 years, Phaidon International has given me the platform and training to become a trusted consultant to Executive Business Leaders within Fortune 500 organizations to fill business-critical roles within their teams.

    ​I initially joined Phaidon International as an Associate Consultant in our London office. In under two years, I was promoted from an Associate Consultant to Consultant, to Principal Consultant, and then selected to relocate across the globe to assist with launching our Hong Kong office.Since then, I’ve been heavily involved in building out the Selby Jennings brand and have witnessed our team grow from four to forty people. I’m now responsible for leading the Selby Jennings business in Hong Kong to its next milestone. Whether you’re motivated by career progression, International relocation or an enterprising working environment, the opportunities available to those at Phaidon International are endless.

    I joined Phaidon by accident as I had just moved to New York and was frantically trying to get a job. I received three missed calls from a random number and finally answered the fourth time. Since making the decision to pick up the phone and interview – I have made so many friends, went on the Summer incentive trip, and have exceeded all of my goals for my first year which included getting promoted. The opportunities Phaidon can give you at the age of 23 are unlike any other entry level job!

    I joined Phaidon International in October 2018 as a learning & development consultant. After just fourth months, I was given the incredible opportunity to move to Berlin to support our German and Swiss offices. A year after joining, I now oversee the full development process of all consultants for these regions, from their induction and on-boarding on their first day, to management training and coaching at Director level.  One year ago, I was in a different career, in a different company, in a different country. The support and opportunities afforded to me since joining are second to none, and I genuinely can’t wait to see what the future brings working here.

The chance to not only become a good recruiter, but to also be able to grow my own business, all based upon my own performance.I joined the contracts division of Glocomms, a Phaidon International brand, in September 2014. Since joining I have had the chance to be involved in the development of the contracts department and have witnessed the office grow from 90 people to over 200.

    ​I was already an expat living in Berlin when I joined Phaidon International in March; I was thrilled to find a company with people in a similar boat to me. The sense of community I felt, since the beginning of theinterview process, really got me excited about joining the team. Working here has enabled me to take control of my career – my hard work is directly rewarded in a very tangible way; both with the unrivalled commission scheme and through merit-based promotions. It makes me feel appreciated whilst highlighting the value I am adding on a daily basis."

    ​The reason I joined Phaidon International was because of the culture. When I first met with the team, the energy and enthusiasm they had for the job and the business inspired me so much. Everyone here is motivated and supportive of each other. We all have a common goal; we want to succeed, individually and as a team. That common goal brings all of us together as a family. The culture is something that I really cherish about working here.

    I had worked in sales at university, but never had the opportunity to be rewarded for how hard I worked. I had always wanted to work in a people based job, where I could interact with different people on a daily basis. When I came across Phaidon International, they offered me the chance to control my progression and potential.

    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.

    ​As soon as I walked into the office of Phaidon International for my first interview after graduating from Notre Dame University, I could feel the fast paced energy in the room and knew immediately that there was something special about the company. This fast pace is not only limited to the energy in the office, but is also reflected in the rapid growth opportunities offered at Phaidon International. With a strong leadership training program and dedicated senior staff, I’ve been given consistent support that allowed me to progress quickly within the business. For me, that fast paced growth has given me the opportunity to manage a growing team, help people achieve their professional and personal goals, and to relocate to expand my brand on the West Coast.
