Jackson Hogg targets offshore market with Scottish expansion

Jackson Hogg Recruitment, one of the largest specialist technical recruiters in the North East of England, has expanded into Scotland with the appointment of an experienced consultant.

In a move that gives Jackson Hogg better access to its Scottish clients, many of which are in the offshore energy sectors, it has appointed Katrina Simpson, a consultant with 17 years’ experience in both Scotland and the North East, to run its operation from Falkirk.

Through Jackson Hogg Katrina is able to find candidates for companies in sectors including subsea oil and gas, renewables and complex technology.

Richard Hogg, Managing Director of Jackson Hogg Recruitment, said: “This expansion into Scotland shows our commitment to our clients there and our confidence in the future of Scottish industry. We work with clients and candidates around the globe and this close access to the Scottish market will help us bring the best engineering and managerial talent to the nation.”

Katrina Simpson said: “I’m delighted to have joined Jackson Hogg Recruitment, its new office brings its relationship-based approach to recruitment and global reach to Scotland, which can add a competitive edge to companies here. While Jackson Hogg has worked extensively with Scottish companies in the past, this raises its operation here to a new level.”
