HR Director – Manufacturing
Our Client is a food processing and packaging company going through a period of rapid growth. This has necessitated a need to identify and attract an exceptionally talented HR Director to lead all HR activities across the group. We needed to appoint an individual who could bring an increased level of rigour, discipline and commercial focus as the business scaled, without diluting the entrepreneurial approach, which had originally made the business successful.
To ensure Wickland Westcott could appoint the very best candidate for the role, our Research team methodically and swiftly mapped the market and simultaneously networked extensively to identify hidden talent. This resulted in numerous recommendations and ultimately a shortlist of highly suitable and engaged candidates.
Wickland Westcott enabled the client to hire an impressive HR Director. The client was delighted with the outcome and since joining, the candidate has made a hugely positive impact and we continue to work with the Board and HR Director on their people agenda.
Wickland Westcott have adopted the Voluntary Code of Conduct for Executive Search Firms which, amongst other things, sets a minimum expectation level for gender diversity for each search assignment.
