The world of work is changing rapidly. Organisations are leaner, looser, more fast-paced and increasingly virtual. Work is less routine and continually evolving. Engagement with a diverse, global workforce, often through non-traditional employment models, is ever more crucial. Technology is challenging established people-management practices, but also providing exciting opportunities. The HR function has to embrace, champion and deliver this new world, whilst retaining its responsibility as steward of the organisational values, and increasingly, the employer brand.

Our years of working in executive search, leadership development and board evaluation with global businesses, SMEs, PE Houses and public sector organisations has given us a unique insight into how the very best HR people add value. They bring a rare blend of vision, influence and commerciality. Wickland Westcott has an excellent track record in recruiting Board level HR Directors, heads of function, and senior specialist roles including resourcing, learning and development, talent, reward, organisational effectiveness, shared services, employee relations and engagement. We invite you to walk with Wickland Westcott.
