f1 recruitment appoints director
Richards was introduced to f1 recruitment in 2014, when she consulted with the business, as part of a game-changing growth and development programme. In her own words “she loved the business so much that she joined it&hellip”
“It’s often that you come across a company that totally inspires you”, she says. “But, here was a team that, for me, stood out – and a key factor was seeing the opportunity that was presented to each member of the team from top to bottom across the business. A company that looks after its people in this way has enormous potential and a great team spirit that left me wanting to be part of its forward journey”.
Richards will be responsible for delivering sales growth, client relationship development and the establishment of high performing consultancy teams alongside Amanda Fone CEO.
Mark Fone, CFO, is focused on the business overall financial and growth strategy of which all aspects are already well underway. The team has just celebrated its best quarter in the company’s 11 year history, and is looking to hire five more consultants in the next six months.
f1 recruitment describes itself as a & lsquo;business with purpose’. Founded by Amanda Fone, who remains highly active within the business, it offers a high level of customer engagement and service.
The company is a strong advocate and driver of flexible working practices, as seen through its joint ownership with Starcom Media Group of the recently launched & lsquo;Back2Businesship’ initiative for 2015, which looks to increase the employability of candidates and help bridge the gap for individuals returning to work after a career gap.
Richards commented, “I am very excited to be part of a & lsquo;go-ahead’ team that is young, hungry to succeed and genuinely does things differently, through embracing new working techniques to fit with modern lifestyles.”
