HRC Recruitment appoints operations director
HRC Recruitment has appointed Steven Ross as its operations director.
Ross has more than 20 years’ experience working across a variety of disciplines at a global and national level, including recruitment, HR, and business transformation. In his new role, he will be responsible for managing HRC Recruitment’s business support functions, ranging from marketing to HR.
Ross joins HRC Recruitment from the London office of management consultancy Lee Hecht Harrison Penna, where he spent nearly 11 years. He began his time at the business as a regional operations manager, rising to UK innovation director.
Prior to his various roles with Lee Hecht Harrison Penna, Ross was a senior managing consultant at Talascend and, in 2003, established his own technology recruitment company, Jobsorter.
This latest senior appointment for HRC Recruitment comes as the company aims to build on a milestone year. During 2018 it launched a new office in Dundee and expanded its presence in Edinburgh, while also relocating to a larger office at 180 St Vincent Street in Glasgow.
Ross (pictured) said, “HRC Recruitment has an outstanding reputation in its markets for being one of the top recruitment consultancies – that was one of the big attractions of joining the company. Having worked across the many different stages of the talent lifecycle during my career, I’m looking forward to utilising that experience and contributing to HRC Recruitment’s ambitious growth plans across Scotland, in what is a very exciting time for the business.”
Hilary Roberts, founder and chief executive of HRC Recruitment, added, “Steven’s appointment is a real coup – he brings with him in-depth experience of working with big, global businesses and solid experience of working with every part of the recruitment and people development process. He will be an integral part of our plans for this year, as we look to build on a highly successful 2018.”
