RGF, Recruit Group’s International Recruitment Business, a powerful search engine

RGF Executive Search (RGF ES) is a powerful search engine that is constantly revving up the leadership talent of the Country.

It was born out of a vision laid out by the Japanese Group, Recruit Holdings Co to move beyond existing Asian markets and discover India specifically as the next frontier of growth in pursuit of international diversification.

Along with CDS in Japan and Bo Le in China, it is arguably one of the largest search platforms in Asia. RGF ES was started in India in the year 2011 with offices initially in Bangalore and Delhi and then subsequently in Mumbai in 2012.

In the year 2013 RGF ES acquired the then Stanton Chase India operations in a landmark deal. This strategic acquisition was after careful due diligence of the synergy the Firm brought in to RGF’s growth path. Both the Consultant teams have come together under the umbrella of brand RGF ES and have subsequently grown to a nationwide team of 40 Consultants across 6 offices.


RGF ES aims to provide job opportunities to top candidates regardless of language, race or culture. At the same time, the Firm provides innovative top level human resource solutions to clients regardless of the industry or size of the operations.
