SEARCH SETS ITS SIGHTS ON SCOTTISH FINANCIAL SERVICES SECTOR WITH DIRECTOR APPOINTMENT

 Search Consultancy today (25 July 2011) announced the appointment of Robert McGougan, who joins as associate director to lead Search’s inaugural push into the financial services sector in Scotland.

McGougan, who joins from global finance recruiter Robert Half International, will be responsible for launching and rolling out Search’s new financial services division across Scotland, developing its market presence and building on its extensive experience of providing financial services recruitment solutions across the UK.

In the new role McGougan, who has worked in recruitment for over 12 years, will also be responsible for managing the Scottish Accountancy and Finance, Sales and Marketing divisions, overseeing a team of around 20 consultants.

This appointment is the latest in a line of senior appointments made as part of Search’s Scottish expansion strategy, which is focused on increasing income and headcount by 20 per cent over the next year. In the last three months, three new associate directors have joined Search to lead specialist divisions and maximise the potential for growth.

Robert McGougan, associate director, said:

“This position represents a fantastic opportunity for me to further develop some of Search’s mature, market leading brands along with the thrilling prospect of launching the new financial services division – a first for Search in     Scotland.

“The priority will be to consolidate and develop our position in the Scottish market across all divisions to help us occupy market leading status in each sector, and I’m looking forward to working with the team at Search to expand our business even further.”

Simone Lockhart, managing director of Search Consultancy in Scotland said:

“The decision to target this new sector was based purely on the opportunities we knew existed in the burgeoning Scottish financial services market and we’re delighted to have Robert on board to develop this important area of our business.

“Search Consultancy has a strong background in delivering financial services recruitment solutions since the division was established in 1987, and we believe this experience, coupled with the expertise of our specialist team, will ensure we’re well placed to meet the recruitment needs of businesses in Scotland.”
