Where We Have Come From
Blayze Group is the parent company of five award-winning recruitment brands covering Property & Construction, Design, Automotive & Manufacturing, FMCG and Life Sciences in the UK and beyond.
We specialise in the following areas: Accounting & Finance, Architecture & Design, Business Support, Consultancy, Engineering & Contracting, General Practice Surveying, HR, IT & Digital, Land & Planning, Legal, Procurement, Residential Development and Supply Chain Operations.
Founded in 2002 by Harvey Gretton, his vision from the very beginning was to become the chosen recruiter for many top companies. Based in London and Manchester, our teams work to shape and deliver strategic advantage.
Today, Blayze Group is a leading recruitment partner working with esteemed organisations within Accounting & Finance, Architecture & Design, Business Support, Consultancy, Engineering & Contracting, General Practice Surveying, HR, IT & Digital, Land & Planning, Legal, Procurement, Residential Development and Supply Chain Operations.
We count leading residential and commercial developers, construction firms and real estate consultancies among our client base.
As a values-based Recruitment Consultancy, positivity, pace and perseverance is at the heart of our organic culture. Whilst we have experienced agile growth, one value has remained consistent: appreciating people as the most valuable asset to a business. This is something we driven internally as well as externally, as evidenced by our Gold Standard in Investors in People.
Over the years we have built loyal relationships with both clients and candidates; we acknowledge not just their business and strategic objectives, but also their organisational structures and working cultures. We focus on finding the right person for the right role in the right company – we don’t rush to fill a gap.
As a response to this our clients have asked us not to just do their recruitment, but to become their recruitment right-hand. As a result, Blayze Leadership Consultancy was born. Great companies don’t hire skills, people and motivate them – they hire already motivated people and inspire them. In a world where less than 10% of leaders have the essential skills to lead successful transformation change, clearly getting it right isn’t easy.
We opportunely place high-calibre individuals nationwide and internationally. To ensure we maintain personable relationships with our partners, we have strategically located offices in London and Manchester.
Our international search brand is thriving in its global market; as we continue to identify and drive first-rate talent across the globe to mirror our clients’ ambitions, we intend to open a new international office in 2018.
