In this episode of the #TogetherWeThrive Podcast, we meet Rob Shaw, the MD of Glu Recruit, a forward-thinking, high value-driven recruitment agency that shows no signs of slowing down, even in these uncertain times.
Four years ago, Rob started Glu Recruit in his garage and has grown the business to 10-staff and currently is looking to recruit two more.
Rob says his business success is due to his attention to detail, his genuine caring nature and that he steered away from the traditional smile and dial recruitment model.
