Barker Ross appoints MD and operations director
The Barker Ross Group has appointed Eliot Davies as the new managing director at Barker Ross Recruitment and Helen Clark as operations director for Barker Ross Health and Social Care.
Davies has worked in construction, property and engineering recruitment for over 22 years for Hays plc, ending his career there as senior operations director. He said, "The construction sector is now booming again after seven or eight years of tough markets and there has never been a better time to be recruiting in this sector. My aim is to grow the business organically, investing in the existing locations. In the longer term, I plan to look to expand our perm recruitment offering, open new locations and move into new sectors."
Before joining Barker Ross, Clark was with Reed Health and Care. She commented, "I'm really excited about being part of taking the Barker Ross Health & Care business to the next level. Health and social care is a very demanding area to recruit in as good candidates can pick and choose who they work for. Compared to other companies in the sector, Barker Ross's commitment to safeguarding, robust process and training impressed me; along with their commitment to giving candidates a good experience, I think it's the recipe for success."
Paul Ross, founder and CEO of the Barker Ross Group, said, "Recruitment is a people business and our success depends on being able to attract the best and the brightest. I'm really pleased to welcome Eliot and Helen to the business and think their track record demonstrates their experience and capability."
