Chairman Paul Macildowie commented The appointment of Helen Reynolds to this role is the further significant marker in RIDAs commitment to the Recruitment Industry. Helen brings a wealth of recruitment expertise as well as practical hands on expertise gained through her role at the REC. Her experience of providing mentorship, coaching and training to SMEs is of course an excellent addition to the existing talent stable
Reynolds commented further At a time when the whole planet is feeling the effects of the worsening economic climate, it is important that businesses have a visible support provider. RIDAs objectives are to ensure that businesses not only survive these tough times but also continue to grow and develop. Research has proved that the businesses that gained sound advice and support in the last recession gained larger market share and profile when the upturn came. RIDA has been able to demonstrate how growth can still be achieved in such times through its development programmes. The company strapline of develop, evolve, and prosper has perhaps never been so apt
