Jamie Gardiner

//President- Vivid Resourcing LLC

I came to LA in 2016 to set up Vivid Resourcing’s US operation and fulfilled a dream to work abroad in doing so. I have fallen in love with California as a whole. The lifestyle is incredible and there is no better recruitment market to work in. We have had huge success across every market we’ve entered, breaking G2V records individually and as an office, as we’ve become the fastest growing office in the group’s history.

//Testimonials VIVID RESOURCING EMPLOYEE TESTIMONIALS

James McNulty

James McNulty

// Senior Sales Manager

I have worked for Vivid for just over 6 years and I can genuinely say it has been one of the most challenging yet rewarding experiences of my life. I joined when Vivid had 5 employees and have seen the company go from strength-to-strength through excellent hiring and training for all levels of staff. I have been heavily involved with Vivid’s overseas expansion; the first person I ever hired now runs our office in LA, and another one of my reports is heading up our Belgium operations. This serves as a true indication of just how serious Vivid is about investing in staff and allowing the company to continue to grow at such a rapid pace. I often get asked where I think Vivid will be in 5 years’ time and I think back to where we were when I started and can’t even begin to picture what this company may look like in 5 years’ time, but one thing I do know is I will still be here!”

My progression within these 18 months has been supported 100% from my colleagues, line managers and directors.

// Recruitment Consultant

“Vivid has supported my career goals since day one. They have helped me map out a realistic and ambitious career path, which could hopefully see me managing my own team and opening a new UK office in a few years’ time. The support structure is great, and they have managed to create a tenacious and gratifying office culture - one where hard work is genuinely rewarded. Determination doesn’t go unnoticed and if you have career goals, Vivid can help you reach them.”
