About Us


Founded in 1993 by Paul Goodman, as a response to what he felt was a failing by the industry to put their people first, our principles and the way we work has remained the same. 

Goodman Masson might be the chosen recruiter for many top companies, in London, Dusseldorf and most recently New York, but we are also so much more than that. 

We feel privileged to help others find new and exciting opportunities and we want to be known as the first recruitment company to help its clients keep their people. We focus on pairing the right person to the right role, not just rushing to fill a gap. 

Recognitions like our 5th consecutive year being voted ‘Best Company to work for’ help us to smash that goal again and again, proving that if we can do it here, we can do it anywhere. 

As a response to this, over the years our clients have asked us many times to not just do their recruitment but become their recruitment, either for large transformation projects or in totality as an out-sourced solution encompassing all their recruitment needs. Our RPO/solutions business was set up exactly for this and we are currently on-site with organisations across Banking & Financial Services, Public Sector & Not-for-Profit, Professional Services and Industry & Commerce.

The New York team currently operate within Technology across all sectors.  Our recruiters are specialists in their fields and their commitment to keeping up-to-date with movements in the market is unrivalled.

Welcome to our first in a series of workplace films. We aim to use video to inspire and challenge people to first think and then act differently in the workplace. The film is designed to give you a window into our thinking and view of the world.

In this first film, we ask you to think back to being a child and remember some of the dreams and aspirations we all held about our future. Sadly the workplace for too many has been a place where dreams are lost and not found. With 50% of people stating they are unhappy at work, we think it’s time for a change.  

We follow three characters whom all faced and overcame unique and different challenges in the workplace.



The Experience™ was born around six years ago. At the time, most people would have called it an employee engagement strategy. (But oooh, language like that is so not us).

Back then it was a reality that The Experience™ was internally focused, known only to team members within the business. However, that was then.

Over these past years, The Experience™ has evolved, morphed and today is the very blueprint for how we do business. It defines the approach to how we look after our people better than any other. It provides a visual reminder for our brand and a focal point for our teams, partners and increasingly our customers.

The four pillars of The Experience™ have become some of the most potent drivers helping to increase profit, grow our business, attract and retain the right people and work with the best clients and candidates.

It's a wonderfully simple equation; provide the right tools + growth opportunities + professional development + support in an inspiring environment = happy team members.
