Glen Manners

Glen always has a cheery demeanour and is happy to go the extra mile. He understands the importance of a "good hire", especially in light of the challenging climate that so many membership organisations face. He prides himself on getting under the skin of each vacancy, carefully matching the needs of his clients with those of his candidates.

Glen has volunteered with numerous charities that are close to his heart, engaging with diverse groups including children, older persons, the homeless and those suffering from addiction issues.

Aside from 20 years recruitment experience, Glen maintains his youthful outlook by writing, singing and performing with his own rock band. An avid vinyl collector, Glen is always on the lookout for new music. Make sure you ask him for podcast recommendations too!

Testimonials
  • ​I am more than pleased to recommend Glen who successfully recruited an Executive Director for us recently. He managed the process very professionally and efficiently, taking time to find out about our Charity and what we were looking for. He searched effectively and offered us a long list of highly suitable potential candidates. He helped us a great deal with process and selection and provided central London interview facilities. We are indebted to him for an intelligent, friendly, diplomatic and effective service, keeping us up to date at all times and working with us closely to completion. All in all, a very positive experience.

  • ​Glen is like a breath of fresh air in the recruitment world. He listens to the organisation, their ethos and the role requirements. Brings his expert knowledge into the sourcing. In our recent sourcing, he went over and beyond. I did not feel hassled, but rather supported. Glen only brought top quality candidates that he had sourced from beyond the usual methods, which meant it was a pleasure to pay for the right candidate.

  • ​Glen, has been a consistent source of high quality interview candidates. He takes time to understand a business's needs, and the particulars of a role. Then he sifts through his contact to provide candidates that fit the bill. As a recruiter it is refreshing to find someone who takes the time and care to sort the wheat from the chaff rather than just flooding your inbox with CVs. It makes shortlisting so much quicker and easier. On top of all that, he's just a really nice guy.
