Ryan Sullivan

Ryan joined Gravitas in 2015 straight from University as a Recruitment Consultant. He is incredibly proud to have become Gravitas’ first home grown Global TA Manager within 6 years of being with the company, and growing a TA team across the UK and Asia to support Gravitas' growth plans. Other highlights include speaking at the Gravitas’ AGM 2019 about his journey in Gravitas.

In his role today as ​​Global Talent Acquisition Manager he is responsible for all internal hiring and running the Global Talent Acquisition Team. This includes attracting candidates to come and work for Gravitas (from entry level and graduates, right up to headhunting experienced recruitment managers and directors who want to kick start their career with Gravitas), and managing the entire interview process right up to offer and onboarding stage.

Ryan finds recruitment unique in that it extends across nearly every industry imaginable. Recruiters can cover sectors from healthcare, engineering, technology, insurance, education and beyond – and because of this, recruiters can have a global reach in being able to educate others and make an impact on society. Ryan believes that one of the biggest responsibilities of someone working in recruitment is the impact they can make on Diversity & Inclusion – educating candidates and clients about the advantages of having a diverse workforce can slowly start to benefit society and make the world a better place. Ryan saw this first hand as a member of the LGBTQ+ community, he found it obvious that when he first started in recruitment, people who were similar to him were few and far between (or if they were, then they struggled to live as their authentic selves).

When Ryan isn’t socialising, travelling or exploring the London food scene, you’ll normally find him in the gym or pounding the pavements (on the rare occasion the great British weather allows it!). He is also a proud advocate for LGBTQ+ causes – from social clubs to charity fundraising.​
