McGregor Boyall announces major appointment
Greensmith has almost 25 years’ recruitment experience, predominately within Hudson’s IT and HR businesses which involved running five regional offices and the management of multi-disciplined recruitment teams.
Commenting on the appointment, Managing Director Laurie Boyall said, “We are delighted that someone of Sarah’s calibre has joined us – she is a highly experienced and extremely well networked business leader. Sarah is a key strategic hire for us and will lead the execution of our ambitious expansion plans for our commerce & industry and professional services divisions which include growing and leading a cross-sector human resources recruitment team.”
This is the latest hire in what has become a carefully managed headcount expansion over the last couple of years which has seen some big hitters joining from competitors such as Huxley, Aston Carter and Robert Half.
As Lucy Frost, director and head of talent management, points out, “I think we have a compelling proposition here. Growth and investment creates opportunities at all levels and for those with ambition and a genuine desire to succeed, this is a great time to be part of McGregor Boyall. We're also mindful of work life balance and the responsibilities people have outside of work, so we offer a mature and flexible environment to support this. This year, we are hiring across all our locations with a particularly strong focus on increasing headcount in London, especially at Consultant level, where we are growing our teams in newer areas such as HR & Procurement ,Professional Services, Marketing and Finance, as well as continuing to add value to established areas such as Banking Technology.“
