Gold Group is a long established recruitment consultancy founded by Richard Leman (Chairman) and Tom Puffett (Managing Director). Having been in recruitment for many successful years together they felt it was time to start their own company. The 23rd February 2000 signified the creation of Gold Group. The company has fought through several recessions to continue operating competitively. We have changed our specialisms to match that of the changing industry and remain competitive.
The name was generated from Richard Leman's success at the Olympics where he won a Gold Medal (Seoul, 1988) and a Bronze Medal (Los Angeles, 1984) as part of the British Men’s field hockey team. The word Gold can be seen as the anchor within the logo. It was important to integrate this within the logo to set the benchmark for future success.
The team today:
The team of professionals working at Gold Group has significantly grown since the 23rd February 2000 from Richard and Tom to over 50 in-house members. We have also developed six different niches providing technical and professional recruitment worldwide. There is also a dedicated back office team of professionals. This support team ensures our consultants have every resource they require to provide an excellent service to both clients and candidates.
Our team of like-minded professionals continue to set the standard high for the industry. These very employees continue to make Gold Group what it is today. The relationship between Richard and Tom remains strong as their ties strengthen with the organisation.
