Gilbert Meher Celebrates Ten Years in Industry

03 Sep 2021

A momentous milestone we are proud to share with you.

We’ve been in this game a decade, working hard to match the industry's best talent with world renowned organisations in the market. That’s a decade of building lasting relationships with clients; and a decade that the people we placed have been making a difference in the lives of tens of thousands across the globe.

We’ve built something admirable, but it wasn’t all Guinness and Go-karts. We’ve had many challenges and milestones along the way.

A little backstory

Ten years ago, our CEO Jonathan had an epiphany. What if recruitment didn't have to be so cut-throat? And he set out to prove that quality outweighed quantity.

In the beginning, it was just him and a laptop in the back bedroom of his home, but six months later, he opened the first office in Bramham.

Jonathan found himself humbled by the number of altruistic people he was helping, people who could easily earn a fortune in the private sector but who chose to work in Health & Social Care in-stead. For him, the knowledge that he worked with people who genuinely cared about what they did was the motivation he needed to keep going.

New blood

By 2013 Graeme and Jonny had joined the team, and they brought a fun and competitive spirit with them — a spirit that has come to define our office life and makes us who we are.

And that’s how we presented ourselves. We were just three guys, actually talking to people, and building meaningful relationships with our clients. Something we continue to do to this day.

We couldn’t have been this successful without our people around us. We’ve always tried to make it a fun place to work. No one is bigger than the team, we believe that. We strive to make Gilbert Me-her somewhere that people genuinely want to come to work.

The team grew from strength to strength, we had to change offices four times to grow with it. We opened new departments in Medical Devices, Life Sciences, Contract Division and IT. And of course, in 2015 we opened an office in Zurich. All of this to better serve the needs of our clients.

Looking back

The company has grown and evolved over the years, and still is, but who we are will always be at the heart of it.
