For the Corporates

Gidman & Co is a highly qualitative recruitment and career management consultancy, catering mainly for candidates from the professional sports world in terms of their transition into the commercial and corporate world.

We are not an ‘off the shelf’ standard High Street recruitment agency. If that is what you are looking for and need, in this saturated market, there are certainly plenty to choose from.

At Gidman & Co, we have three simple statements that sum up our proposition. If you are looking for:

  • A standard recruitment agency, you will find one.
  • An agency that will provide you with volume candidates, you will find one.
  • A highly qualitative career management consultancy that can offer you selected candidates that bring a new dynamic to your organisations, you have found one.

The Gidman & Co service model and proposition is not for everyone, we understand and accept that. However, the select clients we do work with enjoy a level of service that is unsurpassed in the industry. As you would expect from any ‘supplier’, what is vital to Gidman & Co is our relationship with you and understanding your specific needs.

Our first step with your organisation is to learn about your vision and values and what you represent, then naturally we would like to know more about the skills gaps you are seeking to fill and how Gidman & Co is best placed to cater for these.

You can be confident that each candidate that Gidman & Co represents will be thoroughly assessed and prepared for any meeting with you – no more wasted time with inappropriate candidates.

Clearly, we will be presenting individuals to you who have come from a sporting background and often their commercial experience, that is directly relevant, is perceived as lacking. The clients we serve best understand, accept and see beyond this, appreciating the impact value and/or contribution our candidates make in the workplace.

Whilst we would not like to be too prescriptive here, typically our candidates have the following transferable skills:


  • Leadership and Management
  • Strong empathy and situational awareness
  • Hugely competitive
  • Used to winning and losing
  • Able to overcome adversity
  • Tenacity and perseverance
  • Charisma
  • High levels of emotional intelligence
  • A ‘We’/ Us’ rather than ‘I’/‘Me’ perspective on the world
