Birmingham is booming, from business to culture to high end restaurants, the massive investment into this centrally located city over the last 4 years has made it a fabulous place to live.
Birmingham’s culinary scene is immense. From Michelin starred fine dining to award winning street food and nationally renowned Indian cuisine (Brum invented the Balti, did you know?). Birmingham’s culinary prowess is becoming world famous – G2v even have our annual super lunch at Purnells this year!
And the bars! Gin cocktails served in a bathtub? Check. More craft beer than you could ever drink in your lifetime? Check. Funky decor and hidden entrances? Check. For those cocktail enthusiasts and craft beer fanatics it’s be rude not to enjoy a tipple or two

Two of the key problems facing our clients is the shortage of highly skilled design staff and the lack of recruiters with a genuine specialisation in a sector. To counteract this, consultants are tasked with a narrow, vertical market and set them the gauntlet of becoming an expert in their field. This involves going to various trade shows and exhibitions and following up every placement with a site-visit.
We understand that recruitment is often less than 5% of a hiring manager’s job description. Our process removes the stress and pain from the recruitment process by setting clear parameters and set times to catch up so that our clients can manage their diaries without the fear of being chased.
Working at G2V is hard work but very rewarding. You are surrounded by likeminded individuals who all have a will to succeed. You can expect a loud, vibrant working environment with a solid team helping do develop and guide you on the road to becoming a great recruiter.
