Capita has appointed Nicola McQueen as executive director of its workplace services division, which includes all of Capita’s HR and recruitment businesses.
McQueen has been managing director of Capita Resourcing since 2010 and her promotion is effective from 1st June 2016. She has also been appointed to Capita’s executive management board.
In her new role, McQueen will be responsible for the Recruiting Partnering Project, Capita’s partnership with the MOD to recruit officers and soldiers into the British Army and Army Reserve. The company says she will also oversee several other large scale recruitment contracts in central and local government, as well as nuclear and financial services.
Dawn Marriott-Sims, Capita’s joint chief operating officer, commented, “Nicola’s progression through the business and new role as executive director of workplace services division recognises her passion, talent and dedication to the group.
“She has successfully grown her businesses and created excellent teams. She has a real passion for delivering an outstanding service to clients. Her promotion is a great example of the opportunities available to all within Capita, based on individual merit.
“I and my fellow group board colleagues are delighted to recognise her talent with this well-deserved promotion.”
McQueen said, “Capita’s expertise and experience in the recruitment sector is fantastic, and our businesses continue to go from strength to strength. Working in such a diverse business has really opened my eyes up to the possibilities we can create by bringing together complementary services.
“As we move into the second half of the year, I’m really excited about the opportunities we can offer our clients drawing not only on our existing experience in HR and recruitment and our new employer brand capabilities but also across wider Capita services.”
