Build a Career with GCS Associates

If you’re considering or have ever considered becoming a recruiter, and have experience in industry, there has never been a better time to get on board. GCS Associates has continued to grow over our 15-year history. We now operate in 2 regional offices and have the largest network and geographical coverage of any recruitment company in the Building Supplies and Merchant sector. So, we think we’ve got a fairly good idea about what it takes to be a success in the recruitment world.

The right attitude and personality is a crucial consideration when taking on an employee in any role, and this is especially true in recruitment. Ours is a challenging yet hugely rewarding industry, and what you get out of it is wholly dependent upon what you put in. Work hard and you’ll be rewarded but adopt a half-hearted approach and you can only expect to enjoy limited success.

We hire based on personal strengths and potential, rather than your CV, experience, or background. We believe that ambition, being passionate about people and a desire to be successful are the only prerequisites – everything else, we can teach you.
