Jackson Hogg Recruitment, one of the North East’s largest specialist engineering recruiters, has marked a major move in the export of services by successfully headhunting three USA-based sales directors for a German-headquartered multinational.
The global search was spearheaded by Jackson Hogg’s Director Anthony Broadhead on behalf of the American arm of Bender Group, which creates new technologies for safe handling of electrical power; to ensure the protection of people and the safe operation of machines, systems and manufacturing plants.
The recruitment process took several months and resulted in the appointment of three sales directors in the East Coast and the Southern regions, including Texas.
Wallsend-based firm Jackson Hogg, which was founded by engineer turned industry recruitment expert Richard Hogg, and has grown from two to seven employees in the last twelve months, won the international contract on top of the work it does in the UK and the North East, finding professionals for top engineering companies.
Anthony Broadhead said: “The completion of this contract marks Jackson Hogg’s largest step yet into the world of international recruitment. While we have worked on overseas searches before, the placement of three directors across the United States in one campaign is a great example of the capabilities of our rapidly expanding firm. Global opportunities like this are hugely important to growing businesses in the North East.
Steve Mason (CEO Bender US) said: “Having worked with Anthony on UK searches in the past I had every confidence that he would deliver exceptional people for us here in the US too. Along with a robust, thorough and transparent search process, Anthony’s professional yet personal approach to his work is unrivalled. One of the main drivers for using Anthony is a genuine belief that he has the interests of the organisation for whom he represents as well as the candidates he works with at the forefront of everything he does. Seeking a win-win outcome on every project leaves all parties satisfied with the outcome which, in my experience, is a unique but incredibly effective approach”
Anthony Broadhead added: “At Jackson Hogg we know that companies, and not just those in the UK technology, engineering and manufacturing sectors, see the benefits of a trust and relationship-based approach to recruitment, especially when it comes to professional and senior appointments.”
