3 new consultants join Digby Morgan
In an exciting move, the company is delighted to welcome back a familiar face. Alister Jenkins left Digby Morgan to join RBS as an in-house resourcing consultant.
Following a successful initial period in that role he moved into a project management position in RBS’ International Banking Division focusing on performance management.
Alister has now rejoined Digby Morgan as a managing consultant in the team looking after senior permanent positions in the financial services sector. Commenting on his return to the company he said: “without doubt the time spent at RBS was a great experience and I learnt a lot about how an in-house recruitment function works and is changing – especially in the LinkedIn era - and also a huge amount about wider project management.
“I had a great four years at Digby Morgan before I went to RBS and, to be honest, I missed the cut and thrust of recruitment consultancy life. And I love having the opportunity to work and partner with a variety of different businesses and senior candidates on a one-to-one, personal level.”
In a further key appointment the company is delighted to welcome a new associate director who joins the team looking after senior interim based HR professionals.
A psychology Masters graduate, Rebecca McColley is a highly experienced consultant who spent over 10 years with the leading international specialist recruitment consultancy, Witan Jardine. She was responsible for recruiting finance interims and, subsequently, for developing interim and permanent teams across multiple sectors. Latterly, she was a director at Mackenzie Jones, a marketing recruitment business.
Charlotte Farleigh has joined Digby Morgan as a consultant in the team looking after the more junior to mid level permanent HR hires. A Politics with Eastern European Studies graduate from UCL, Charlotte is also a law graduate who started her legal career with magic circle law firm, Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer. Sensing her true vocation she moved into legal recruitment at Macrae Roxburgh Appleby, a boutique legal search & selection agency. She spent two years headhunting lawyers from the top 50 UK and US law firms for a variety of clients before moving into HR recruitment with Michael Page and now Digby Morgan.
Digby Morgan CEO, Alistair Cook, is understandably delighted with these new hires and the continuing prospects for the second half of 2014 and beyond. “We had a good end to last year which has continued into 2014 and this continued expansion simply reflects that success. We are cautiously optimistic that this will continue throughout the remainder of 2014 as we see a steady growth in confidence in the HR recruitment sector as organisations look to add new skills, build their HR teams and add value to their businesses,” explained Alistair.
