GTS, from start-up
GTS was founded on the idea of having a personal relationship with clients. After having her second daughter, Andrea decided to capitalize on her good relationships with her existing clients and strike it out on her own. Demonstrating a go-getter attitude that served her so well throughout her career, she cut out the middleman and started a new business from her bedroom.
By necessity, the business started small but with the intent to grow and adapt to the changing market. The focus on quality was a priority as was that personal touch. GTS was always going to be a personalised service that would stand out from the myriad of IT recruitment agencies.
It was a simple concept, work closely with clients and candidates and be a partner, not just another recruitment agency. Building on feedback provided by clients, GTS became a company that made everyone feel special and appreciated.
While juggling raising two children (including a newborn) and running a business proved challenging, it was incredibly rewarding. Andrea is the first to admit she was overwhelmed at times and could have used more help, but it all worked out in the end. After they got onto the PSL with a major player in the IT industry, the business really took off. The clients were incredibly happy with the quality of the candidates GTS put forth.
Not many large clients would have taken a chance on a new technical recruitment agency, but it’s clear the ones who decided to use Global Technology Solutions’ services saw great potential in the fledgling company. Their trust definitely paid off, and the rest is history.
