Global Tech Collective was formed with one goal in mind – to provide the absolute best in technology recruitment services to clients and candidates. John Hawker is the innovator behind GTC, after taking the leap from working long term in the recruitment sector, he decided to take the challenge of starting his own business in September last year.

John Hawker
Global Tech Collective Founder and Lead Recruiter – John Hawker

“I had always been an advocate for remote working and was fortunate to have a space at home that I quickly set about turning into a home office. It soon became apparent that the reality of working from home with my then 18-month-old son, a Labradoodle that thinks he’s a Rottweiler and a procession of deliveries dropped off by drivers with levels of persistence akin to bailiffs, was not exactly what I had imagined.”

John managed to work from home for a grand total of 4 weeks.

Cue space282.

“I had walked past space282’s Leigh Road site a number of times, often using the reflective glass to check my hair or make sure I didn’t have anything in my teeth but wasn’t aware it was a co-working space until I jumped on Google and quickly found their number in the search results. After a 15-minute chat with the team there, who took the time to answer a fairly comprehensive list of questions, I was viewing the space within the hour and had signed up for a permanent desk the very same day.”

This is what space282 prides itself on, finding a solution for the individual based on their needs. We want to help that person develop their business and improve their growth, to ultimately succeed. We asked John if he found that to be the case?

“It’s not too much of a stretch to say that Space 282 has played an integral part in the success of Global Tech Collective. It’s not only given me a dedicated space to get work done and be more productive, but I’ve also been fortunate enough to join a community of likeminded people who genuinely support each other. From the moment I stepped into the office I was made to feel welcome, not just by the team there, but by everyone using the space”.

Since John took a permanent desk with us in October 2019, he’s gone from strength to strength making friends and contacts, winning work, and receiving recommendations for other services that have greatly benefited by the business.

John’s company, Global Tech Collective, is the perfect choice when looking for the best tech talent to fill a role or simply searching for that role yourself. You can choose from the many options available such as candidate services, client services, SAP collective, recruitment services, register your CV, live jobs, and much more. GTC is refreshingly different from rival agencies due to their personal approach and type of quality given. Hence why their reputation is strong in the industry, just check their testimonials….

GTC support organisations that understand the value of working with a true recruitment partner. It’s their investment of time, effort, and energy into learning everything there is to know about the client’s business and their focus on creating strong, exclusive relationships that really sets them apart. When supporting candidates, they take time to learn about their aspirations, ambitions, and goals, as well as their technical skills and experience, to really understand what makes them tick. John and the team at GTC are passionate about finding people the right job in the right organisation.

It’s John’s hard work that grew his business to succeed, we just provide the environment, comfort, and encouragement at space282 to do so.

“I can’t thank them enough” says John.

We do love a happy ending.
