11 year GCS veteran Chris Devonshire appointed Head of GCS Technology

11 year GCS veteran Chris Devonshire appointed Head of GCS Technology
 
New role created as a vital first step in expansion of leading recruiter
 
As a key step in the ambitious growth plan of GCS Recruitment Specialists, the company has appointed its first Head of a trading division.  Chris Devonshire, who has worked his way up through the ranks of GCS since joining as a resourcer in February 2000, has been appointed Head of GCS Technology, and has very clear goals. 
 
  My primary target is to get the Technology recruitment division within GCS generating a turnover in excess of 30 million. The companys overall highest annual turnover so far is just short of 30m, so setting this as a goal for a single division is ambitious, challenging and Im confident definitely achievable says Devonshire. I am going to be recruiting heavily to add to my team and focusing on professional development. Existing team members will have the opportunity to progress their careers quickly. I will also be looking to open a new regional office within the next few years. It is unquestionably going to be the defining period of my career.
 
  Devonshire, who thus far has single-handedly been responsible for generating an impressive 2.9 million in net fee income for GCS, became a manager in 2006 and has since grown his team steadily, mentoring a number of GCS many internal success stories along the way. This new role will see him overseeing 40 GCS employees and assuming responsibility for the P&L of GCS Technology, the companys flagship brand.
 
  We spent 18 years as an IT specialist says company founder Chris Bartlett and as we transition into becoming a multi-disciplined consultancy with the addition of several more brands, including Accountancy, Banking and Digital Media,  our aim is to continue to be one of the leading players in UK technology recruitment, whilst developing our reach into other recruitment markets.  Chris Devonshire has become one of the very best recruiters in the country and having him at the helm of the technology division fills me with confidence, excitement and a great deal of pride. Chris is a very inspirational figurehead for GCS Technology. Im certain that he will flourish in the role.
