Blayze Group Continues with International Expansion

Blayze Group - the award-winning and fast growing recruitment consultancy based in the heart of the City of London - is expanding internationally and is looking for ambitious, talented people to help grow its presence in key markets across the globe.

Started in 2002 by Harvey Gretton, Blayze Group's professional approach and genuinely consultative process has seen it become the UK's leading recruitment and talent management consultancy in the property and construction sector. Based in London, with additional offices in Manchester and Exeter, Blayze Group is now planning rapid growth of its international business over the coming months and years.

John March, Head of Blayze Group InternationalThe International Division at Blayze Group has been making great progress under the leadership of John Murphy who joined a little over six months ago with a brief to expand Blayze Group's search, selection and talent programmes into new territories and markets.

John and his team have already added several new clients and Blayze Group International is currently working on securing talent for globally significant energy and infrastructure projects. With John's background in global infrastructure recruitment, Blayze Group International has access to an exclusive talent pool that has the experience and expertise to deliver multi-billion dollar mega-projects.

Bringing Blayze Group's rigorous search and selection processes to international markets has also seen significant wins in Europe, where the International Division is now working with some of the leading construction and engineering firms with global reach. The ambition is to take Blayze Group International's market expertise to carefully selected locations around the world.

John has big plans for Blayze Group's international expansion and he is already scouting several potential locations to establish a local presence. “This is an exciting time for Blayze Group as we push for further expansion in global markets. Building profitable relationships with the biggest and best construction and engineering companies across the globe is a key part of Blayze Group's growth strategy, and I’m delighted to be leading our fantastic International Division. Blayze Group operates with market leading recruitment processes and the latest technology but it's the people in the business that truly drive us forward. Surrounding ourselves with ambitious and driven individuals who share our cultural values is at the root of our success."

Harvey Gretton, Blayze Group MDHarvey Gretton, Blayze Group MD, said: "As we look to expand our presence on the global stage, we are adding to our experienced and knowledgeable International Division. John is leading the search for successful recruiters with management potential to join us at our London HQ to be trained to run and grow their own international branch. This is a unique opportunity for smart, ambitious recruiters to grow with an established business model that is already a leader in its sector."

Blayze Group is now actively hiring potential new country managers for several overseas locations including North America, Europe, the Middle East, South East Asia and Australia.

"This is an exciting opportunity at a time of rapid growth for Blayze Group", said John Murphy. "Of course we're looking for experienced recruiters with a successful track record, but most importantly we want entrepreneurial characters who can open markets and deliver new business within Blayze Group's values-led, professional approach. At Blayze Group we prioritise quality over quantity; we are experts in our field, working at pace with drive, ambition and a positive attitude. We have already built a significant international business and with the backing of an established brand like Blayze Group - and the right people on board - we are looking forward to continued success in the international arena."

I’m often asked by clients how big our database is, but with candidate selection it’s not the volume of a database that matters, it is simply the quality. We work with a pool of talent that is unrivalled in our industry.
