Phaidon International North America

Private Employment - Recruiting - Staffing 16 Active Jobs

Phaidon International is a global staffing group with 8 micro-specialist recruitment brands.

We help organisations identify, attract and secure the best talent for their requirements across 4 key market verticals; Financial Services, Energy, Technical and Professional Services.

Since Phaidon was established in 2004, the group has enjoyed a compound annual growth rate in excess of 30% year on year, achieving over a decade of profitable growth.

Since inception the business rationale has been to anticipate and then serve industry sectors which depend on and value rare talent. Adam Buck, CEO validated this concept with the group's first brand - Selby Jennings, then harnessed our working capital, proven reputation and culture to develop additional niche brands that serve complementary sectors.

In April 2016, we raised an £18m investment from Muzinich & Co and HSBC Bank Plc to support the group's next growth phase.

Today we are proud to deliver excellence to clients in over 60 countries through 8 niche brands who have won over 54 independent awards.
