Market Update – December 2013

Christmas parties have now been and gone (ours was a luxurious affair in the picturesque setting of the New Forest) and the leaves have deserted the trees, which means it must be time for our final market update of 2013.

December has seen a late flurry of activity here at Chilworth and Venture as everyone tries to tie up their recruitment exercises before the new year.  2014 itself is looking very positive – we are already consulting regarding two interim year end projects, and also regarding an acquisition and systems integration project, and the forecast for January is very positive, with market liquidity expected to increase as 2014 progresses.

Instructions in December included assisting a rapidly-growing pharmaceuticals business in setting up their commercial finance team, the placement of both interim and permanent managers at a blue chip vehicle leasing company and a the successful placement of a senior interim finance manager with a major defence business in the Thames Valley.  For details of all the roles we’re currently handling, check out the jobs pages of both the Chilworth Partnership website and the Venture Recruitment Partners website, or find us on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.

Following the success of our business breakfast event in October – Building High Performance Teams – we will be celebrating the successful launch of Venture Recruitment Partners with a drinks and canapés reception in the New Year.  Guests have previously described our events as “very informative and… very entertaining”, “inspiring” and “captivating”, so email peter@chilworthpartnership.co.uk to avoid disappointment, and to book your place for Venture Recruitment Partners: The Launch Party.
