About Us

A specialist recruiter with over 15 years experience in IT and Change Management

A reputation for successful recruitment

The cornerstone of our success is our candor, delivery and reputation. We build long standing relationships due to our high placement rate and enjoy significant opportunities from referrals. Based in San Francisco, we are independently owned and run by our founder and CEO Ian Smith.

Ian set up Brookfield Global in January 2015 after spending ten years in Europe and five years in the United States. He has worked for a variety of recruitment businesses including the global recruitment firm Hudson, boutique search firm Eaton HCS and the in-house recruitment function of a global technology consultancy, Cap Gemini.

He has taken the best of these diverse organisations and challenged the conventional recruitment process. Brookfield Global offers a unique, full life-cycle approach, tailored to our clients’ needs.

Full life cycle recruitment

We advise our clients and candidates throughout the process and provide support on the following:

  • Drafting job specifications and resumes.
  • Defining appropriate compensation.
  • Sourcing.
  • Managing the interview process.
  • Offer Negotiations.
  • Post-placement follow up.

We match the right candidates to the right jobs

Our excellent placement rate is built on:

  • Identifying candidates through our extensive network, referrals, media and headhunting.
  • Leveraging our technology expertise to screen and prepare candidates for every position we fill.
  • Taking time to understand the culture and values of an organization.

I can’t thank Brookfield enough for the insight, support and guidance given in my search for a more promising position. From the very onset I felt as if I was working with a good friend who had made my interests and goals their own.
