The role of a researcher
Our business is centred upon people and we are often the relationship makers. Our primary role is to pinpoint the people who best fit the role profile. Finding this match is the challenge that makes every day different, every conversation stimulating and each successful appointment rewarding. Not many people have the chance to directly impact some of the most influential roles in the country – roles that directly affect every household and every family. Whether that’s those delivering healthcare or vital social services, policy makers, border protectors, regulators or fundraisers, we are often the first point of contact for potential applicants. We engage and influence, often persuading those who were unaware of the opportunity.
At GS, shaping society isn’t some lofty aspiration. It’s what we all do. Every day.
