What’s Been Going On at Think Global Recruitment?



Abigail is on Tour!

Our Managing Director Abigail is back on the road again, taking her wealth of knowledge (20 years in the industry!) with her. She has been forging new partnerships with businesses and expanding the Think Global Recruitment network across the globe with visits to London, Dubai, Australia and New Zealand.

“The main purpose of the trip is to strengthen our relationships with some of the world’s biggest accountancy firms to ensure that we deliver the best opportunities for our accountants.” – Abigail

Abigail has also been catching up with some of the accountants that we placed as far back as ten years ago! As one of the world’s longest running specialist recruitment agencies, we find it important to stay in contact with our accountants to find out how their move has improved their lives. We will be posting some of those people’s stories in future blog posts so make sure to keep an eye out!

If you’re a chartered accountant in Australia or New Zealand and would like to discuss your options about moving abroad you can get in contact with Abigail by emailing astevens@thinkgr.com.

Think Global Recruitment says Happy 10th Birthday to Edinburgh University’s eClub!

 Our Operations Director, Cramond, was delighted to attend a morning’s seminar at the eClub Start-up Festival last week.
“There was a fantastic turnout and it was great to see and hear from all those involved including  the legend that is Pete Irvine
who is responsible, for amongst other things, the best travel guide book ever written, Scotland the Best! 
(new edition out next month)” – Cramond
Peter Irvine’s company, Unique Event’s, was responsible for organising all of the punk, mod and new wave bands in Edinburgh in the late 70s and 1980s via Regular Music (thanks for all the memories!). The seminar also had, among other eminent speakers, Simon from Frisky Yoghurt, Scotland’s original frozen yogurt brand, and Alan Mahon from Social Bite who served George Clooney as the main course at the Scottish Business Awards event last year.
 People Searching for a Land Down Under
Jill, Henrica and Peter all got a chance to attend Down Under Live in Glasgow to talk to people wanting to make the big move to Australia and New Zealand. From families to graduates, the sheer range and numbers of all those drawn south of the equator is a trend that does not seem to be slowing down.
“It’s a Saturday morning and it’s raining really heavily outside, you would of thought it would put people off but there seems to be a really big appetite for working overseas, especially in Australia and New Zealand!” – Peter
 The event had stalls to assist with all the essentials of moving abroad and featured some useful talks on the visa processes, job markets and costs of living. There was also events held in Birmingham and London.
