2 more major signings for Norrie Johnston Recruitment
Rex Cridland, who joins NJR as Recruitment Director, has over 20 years of recruitment experience. He has worked at the highest level within global consultancies, major online recruiters, start-ups and search & selection specialists. During his career he has helped blue-chips such as Apple, Sega, Network Rail, Royal Mail, G4S, Dalkia, TATA, Diageo, XL Insurance and Premier Foods source their senior talent.
He has also provided permanent and interim managers, executives and directors to clients on a global basis. This blue chip international experience is a strong fit for NJR which earlier this month appointed Ex KPMG Managing partner, Graham Oates, to drive its international operations.
Rex Cridland says: “The NJR vision plus the scope of its ambition were major factors in my decision to join the firm. You can just feel the momentum that’s building within the business I wanted to be a part of that.”
Norrie Johnston Recruitment fills senior interim and permanent £70,000 to £250,000 roles, using experienced recruiters combined with the latest online recruitment techniques. This online capability has also been further strengthened with the appointment of Daniel Rackham.
Over the past six years Daniel Rackham, who has been appointed senior recruitment consultant, has carved a reputation as a major online recruitment specialist. With a combination of experience spanning both mainstream IT and recruitment, for some time Daniel has been using online tools to search the deeper web, to fill senior roles globally, across various sectors such as logistics, FMCG, food production, oil & gas, automotive and industrial manufacturing.
Norrie Johnston, the e-recruitment pioneer and company founder, explains the rationale behind the appointments: “We combine traditional, expert search with the very latest online recruitment techniques. I don’t simply mean using LinkedIn our people can work deep in the web. Similarly when I talk senior experienced recruiters we mean people who have also worked at a senior level in the corporate world, people who understand the pressures clients face. When you have that combination of online expertise and senior people, the end result is incredibly powerful.”
According to NJR, the mix of technology-enabled, top recruiters means the agency can provide hand-picked short lists perfectly matched, senior interim candidates within 4 days while for permanent roles, the timeframe from brief to short list is 21 days. Indeed, Johnston is so convinced by the power of his recruitment model that on sole agency briefs he is promoting a 99% success rate.
