Global Staffing Agencies
Global Recruitment Specialists Founded in 1993.
Global Recruitment Specialists (GRS) was founded in 1993 by Patrick Shields as an independent recruitment firm providing personalized, customized, comprehensive, human resource services for non-governmental organizations with international operations in developing countries.
Over recent decades we have seen the world become a true global village. GRS receives calls from international organizations around the world in need of experienced, upper-level, professional assistance.
These requests range from assembling dozens of disaster relief experts with just 72 hours notice, to hiring a senior administrator, to implementing a $12 million agribusiness project. The needs have become more prevalent and the required time frames have become increasingly accelerated.
To tackle these tough recruiting challenges, international organizations are turning to Global Recruitment Specialists for high-quality, experienced, international applicant sourcing. Addressing such complex staffing needs requires access to highly skilled professionals - and the background and knowledge to fill positions at every level of our client organizations.
GRS has successfully demonstrated the ability to bring job seekers and clients together.
The strength of GRS is in our personalized service and our access to the "unadvertised" international development job market. The Client List of GRS is comprised of major international organizations. (See Client List) GRS recruiters know and speak with the hiring managers in these major international agencies and the senior agency staff who make strategic decisions about future directions and staffing needs.
Our recruiters have international work experience, and a good understanding of international issues. We understand the applicant side of the human resources paradigm. We have firsthand knowledge of the difficulty of finding an ideal position and we can assist you in identifying assignments that will make the best use of your skills and experience
