Human Resources Recruitment

Our Human Resources Practice delivers a business focused approach to ensure the successful appointment of senior HR professionals across a range of industries. We seek to appreciate the challenges an organisation is facing, to absorb the culture and ethos, to understand the needs of the role and the likely background and personality of the appointed person.

We have a longstanding reputation for quality. We bring an intelligent and empathetic approach to our work and understand that processes we deliver can have a profound effect upon the organisations we work with.

The Changing Face of HR

Whether working in a large matrix or an SME, change and transformation is driving HR to add value and be more commercial. The growing emphasis on technology,social media, CSR, engagement, talent development and culture all now play a huge part in HR's impact across its multigenerational workforce.

These developments coupled with the added scrutiny of diversity and the gender pay gap has shifted the role for HR professionals, who are now more agile, innovative and consultative than ever before. We would welcome the opportunity to discuss these current trends with you and the challenges facing the sector.

"I have recently worked with Berwick Partners on the attraction and recruitment for a Head of HR. Throughout the process I found the team knowledgeable, thorough and highly responsive. Deadlines were met and we were presented with a quality shortlist, which made the selection of final candidate the most challenging aspect of the process. I gained the impression that they genuinely know the market and have a comprehensive network that they were able to leverage for our benefit." Tracey Orr, Client Services Director, Central England Cooperative

“I would like to highlight the excellent job Berwick Partners have done in finding us an HR Director for Aircelle UK in Burnley.The comprehension of our requirements, production of the candidate brief and subsequent search to produce a shortlist of very high calibre candidates was extremely impressive. In addition I would like to single out the attention to regular project updates, clear communication of progress and personal support throughout which made the process so much easier for us. As a result we have found an HR Director for Aircelle UK who is an excellent fit to our candidate brief.” Chris Plumb Managing Director, Aircelle Limited
