The 1st day of Xmas…a multi-sector HR Director in a pear tree!

As the festive season begins we’re pleased to introduce a new ‘goodwill’ initiative to showcase among the strongest senior HR and Business Transformation talent active in the market.

Over the next 12 days we’ll run our own version of the ‘Twelve Days of Xmas’ and publish the profile of individuals we are actively working with whom we consider to be exceptional in their respective field. We would then like to encourage any prospective employers (some might say astute!) to get in touch with us if they’d like to engage further with this individual. As a goodwill gesture this introduction would come with NO FEE obligation.

Yes that’s right, you can speak to a proven high performer with a view to hiring them or engaging them for a contract/consulting role and not have paid a penny. All you need to do is contact us and we can set the wheels in motion if both parties feel it would be appropriate to proceed.

Are you ready? Here we go…..
