“A business that makes nothing but money is a poor business”

Henry Ford, News Journal [Mansfield, Ohio] (3 August 1965)

Back in 2012 Dan Perrett, Simon Laver and Patrick McDonald began work on an idea close to their hearts. Perrett Laver is a global executive search firm with a large Higher Education practice, specialising in academic and research leadership appointments.

Watching university recruitment costs spiral, and wanting to create a sustainable mechanism to fund international research, they turned to their own industry, recruitment, and began to build the first truly global online academic jobs board; Global Academy Jobs.com (GAJobs). Early on they invited the international university research alliances to partner in the endeavour. Worldwide University Network (WUN) joined them and helped design the service, followed quickly by Universitas 21 (U21).

GAJobs is now one of the largest online academic jobs boards. Our websites, regular emails and international academic jobs board reach over 100,000 academics and researchers around the world each week and we share revenue with our university alliance partners.

We work with universities across the world; continents, countries and universities share equal status both on our website and within our network. We are as proud to be working with some of the world’s newest universities as with the older, established centres of Higher Education. Our member universities understand how we help them cut their recruitment advertising costs, build their international reputation and attract the best international research and academic candidates wherever they are in the world.

Can you work internationally if you only speak English?
