Russam GMS provided a perfectly appropriate and highly appreciated service, firstly both seeking and filtering candidates, using a good understanding of our organisation accurately gleaned by interview from key staff and board members, then in assisting during the final interview stage and being on-hand to ensure even-handedness and fair assessment. The outcome was not just the right candidate, but also confidence that the process had been both comprehensive and fair.

Charity Chair

I have worked with Russam GMS as a client and a candidate. I am very impressed with the company. Russam GMS is a 'one in a million' recruitment firm! Over the past thirty years, our executive team trained, coached, hired and worked with 100's of recruiters internationally. From our perspective, Russam GMS has passion, integrity and professionalism which are a real credit to the recruitment profession.
