What we think
Working in executive recruitment gives us a unique vantage point. Our close involvement in such a diverse range of sectors enables us to offer interesting insights and asides. The information contained in this part of our site is constantly updated.
Organisations in almost every sector are dealing with economic uncertainty and digital transformation. For most, the complexion of the workforce is changing; employers are calling out for staff to fill critical roles – many related to digital capabilities – while other roles emerge, evolve and expire. Key to navigating this state of flux is Strategic Workforce Planning (SWP) and Kate Parker gives her view on how to make this work in Personnel Today.
This time last year, a Housing Today research piece showed that 58 councils had established housebuilding companies. At the same time, here at Berwick Partners, we were working with councils in Barking, Bexley and Havering as those authorities sought to use this type of model to move their own housing development piece forward. Fast forward a year and my belief is that the number of councils with such vehicles has at least doubled. Presently almost half of my work is directly linked to councils delivering new housing.

MIPIM, the world’s largest real estate expo, is on this week and presents a significant opportunity for public sector and placemaking leaders to highlight a destinations’ potential and capture investor attention. Yet, to be truly effective, mayors, ministers, ambassadors and those at the forefront of high-level discussions must also have the people-power behind them to recognise, react to and capitalise on investor interest. Marek Dobrowolski gives his opinion on how to maximise opportunities at MIPIM in the MJ.
'Adapting to Changing Consumer Expectations' with Ian Marshall & Gail Bojarski (aka Mr & Mrs Benefit) and David Walmsley of Future Plc
During a truly enjoyable evening with leaders from across beauty and lifestyle brands, we debated the current consumer landscape, changing behaviours and just how brands, old and new, can effectively compete in an increasingly fragmented consumer world. With representatives from brands such as KMI, Morphe, Black & Blum, Feelunique and Essity, we surmised a number of key learnings, our guiding principles to embracing a seamless consumer approach.
