Acorn appoints technical and engineering manager
Acorn has appointed Debbie Cole (pictured, left) as its technical and engineering manager.
Cole, who has worked for the company since 2003, moves up from her previous role as branch manager in Bristol to take on the position within Acorn.
As part of her new challenge, Acorn says Cole will continue to develop Acorn’s technical and engineering division by providing key strategy support, staff development planning and specialist recruitment services for a range of leading companies within the engineering, automotive, aerospace, manufacturing, pharmaceutical, nuclear, biotechnology and food and drink fields.
Speaking about her promotion, Cole said, “I’ve worked in recruitment for over 20 years and have a thorough understanding of what businesses need from their recruitment partner, particularly within the technical and engineering industry.
“During my career I have developed some fantastic relationships with technical employers, professional engineers, technicians and programmers looking for their next career move. These successful relationships have grown purely on the basis of the way I work; I understand the industry, I get to know the company and professional to ensure the best recruitment match, for both skills and personality, and I keep everyone updated throughout the whole process.
“Acorn has already established a sound reputation for providing an expert recruitment service within these specialist sectors across Wales and the South West, which has provided me with a great platform to continue to retain these relationships and develop long-term strategic partnerships with businesses across the M4 corridor. I also plan to develop Acorn’s offering into the Midlands.”
Maria Larcombe, director of operations (South) (pictured, right), commented, “I have worked with Debbie for over ten years at Acorn, and it’s great to be able to offer her this opportunity. We share Acorn’s company vision in that everything we deliver will ultimately bring value to all our customers, so she’s not just going to play a key role in Acorn’s growth, she’ll also have a significant role to play in the success of the businesses she works with.
“Debbie has an excellent reputation based on her strong history in technical and engineering recruitment and I have no doubt she’ll deliver outstanding results for all.”
