Market Update – August 2013

Although August is typically a quiet month in the recruitment world, Chilworth Partnership made a number of successful interim and permanent placements within the education, manufacturing, retail and financial services sectors.

Looking forward, we are excited to announce the forthcoming launch of Venture Recruitment Partners. Our new division, due to  be launched at the end of September will focus on qualified financial recruitment for the mid-market £35-60k salary range across the South. Client demand made the launch of the new business inevitable and it will be led by Managing Consultant Ian Brown with David Hodges stepping up from his position as Resourcing and Marketing Associate at Chilworth Partnership to become a Recruitment Consultant with Venture. We wish them both the very best in their new Venture which we are sure will be a success.

These impending promotions have created the need to appoint a new Resourcing and Marketing Associate. We are pleased to welcome Peter Ward, a recent graduate from the University of Southampton to this role. Peter’s main responsibilities will be to support both Venture and Chilworth Partnership in the delivery of high quality shortlists on retained assignments and for managing stakeholders involved in marketing initiatives and events.

To mark both the third anniversay of Chilworth Partnership and the recent launch of Venture Recruitment Partners we wil be holidng a business breakfast event on Tuesday 22nd October  featuring one of the UK’s top business speakers, Jeff Grout. See the Events page for more details.

Market Update – July 2013

Chilworth Partnership made a number of successful introductions in July across a variety of sectors including business services, financial services and manufacturing.

Due to business expansion and the imminent launch of a new division (watch this space for further details) we are delighted to announce the hire of a new researcher, who joins us in September.

Market Update – June 2013

Although this time of year typically marks the start of the seasonal slow-down in recruitment activity, June saw The Chilworth Partnership secure a number of notable placements. These include:

  • A European Commercial Finance Manager for a world-leading manufacturing company based in Fareham.
  • A Business Analyst for a global FMCG business based in North Hampshire
  • An Interim Financial Reporting Manager for a leading business services organisation based in Portsmouth

On the basis of another successful year of trading and a strong first quarter we are now looking to appoint a further graduate researcher. Responsibilities will include improving the success of the consulting team (through effective social networking, information management and project management) and increasing Chilworth Partnership’s market knowledge. We’d be pleased to hear from you if you have any recommendations.

Market Update – May 2013

Chilworth Partnership was delighted to hold a Business Breakfast event featuring guest speaker Dennis Turner, the former Chief Economist at the HSBC. The event was a huge success with Dennis being as irreverent, informative and witty as ever, providing us with a pragmatic and relatively optimistic outlook for the British economy.

Dennis’ positive outlook of an up-turn in the market reflected what we have been seeing over the last month. From the beginning of May there has been a growing confidence in the market from both our clients and candidates and this has resulted in Chilworth Partnership securing a number of successful appointments for the month.

These have included:

  • Senior Finance Business Partner for a financial services organisation based in Bournemouth
  • Chief Financial Officer for a marketing business in Andover
  • Interim Systems Specialist for a media business based in central Southampton

Our Autumn and Winter events program will be announced here very shortly.
