Goodman Masson

Established in

About us

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

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.

We feel privileged that we help companies grow by finding great people and helping others find new and exciting opportunities. Challenging conventional wisdom, we want to be known as the first recruitment company to help its clients keep their people by sharing our knowledge of the modern workplace.

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

As a response to this, for many of our clients we are asked to not just do their recruitment but advise on their working environment, employer brand and talent mapping, either for large transformation projects or in totality as an out-sourced solution. Our RPO business was set up exactly for this and has helped make many companies more compelling during the attraction of talent and more engaging as a working experience for the retention of talent.

And of course we remain true to our origins. Our recruiters know what they are doing and time and time again we believe show that they are unrivaled.

What employees say

There are too many little things that contribute to Goodman Massons culture to list and that’s because there’s a clear attitude towards individualising everyones experience, so we can thrive at work AND at home. You feel supported to pursue success at work but there’s also lots of encouragement to enjoy life outside of it, whether that’s through the exotic holiday fund or, closer to home, drinks and events. They really embrace work/life balance and it’s this that allows you to feel like you’re not just working with colleagues but with friends.

We remain fascinated with the modern workplace and are committed to workplace change. We believe it has to be a place that challenges, engages and inspires and the four pillars of The Experience® (WORK, GROW, REWARD and CONNECT) ensures it does exactly that.

What inspires us


Our promise to provide our people with the right tools and infrastructure to be able to do a great job.

We’ve built a market leading client base, we’re proud of the strength of our candidate portfolio and we regard our business support teams as the very best.


Our promise to our people that they will continue to evolve and have the opportunity to professionally develop.

We have a dedicated internal Learning & Development team who run monthly training programmes ranging from graduate hires all the way to senior leaders.


Our Benefits Boutique®, was created by considering the modern day challenges our people face.

Our benefits reflect these challenges and include our Mortgage Fund, Knowledge Fund, Student Loan Fund, Home Improvement Loan, Exotic Holiday Fund and a New Parent Loan.


Free breakfast every day, a weekly visit from a masseuse, a day off on your birthday, an annual subsidised ski trip, an office barber and beauty therapist, our chill out room – just a few of the many benefits that ensure we create an environment that our people want to be a part of and don’t want to leave…and not to mention the 3:30 finish on a Friday.

Action highlights

Recently we have appointed a Head of People to consolidate L&D, Internal Recruitment and our HR function to make sure that our people have a solid HR support network across the business.

All our people are also given the opportunity to review their own performance and have input within their own teams at 6 monthly review meetings, ensuring that proper guidance is given no matter your position.

We also encourage our people to spend time building work around their lives, not the other way around. Which is why everybody at Goodman Masson has access to our working from home and flexible hours scheme.

Word from the top

Going to work 20 years ago: In for 7:30am, home for 9pm, no lunch (or a disguised five-minute sandwich at my desk), no phone calls to home, friends secondary, a rapid decline in fitness and wellness and a complete neglect of anything other than my job. I would go back in time and change all of this. I hold the belief that the single biggest challenge facing any business is the retention & engagement of talent and the creation of unique working environments...the reason we place this challenge at the centre of everything we do.
