Sandra McKinnon joins Harvey John as Head of Operations.
Harvey John is delighted to announce the appointment of Sandra McKinnon in the newly created role of Head of Operations. Sandra brings with her 15 years of management experience in specialist finance & professional services recruitment across the UK.
David Waddell, Managing Director of Harvey John says:
"Introducing a Head of Operations to the business was high on the priority list for 2021, I'm delighted that Sandra fits the bill perfectly!
"Not only will she fit seamlessly into the team, her knowledge of the recruitment industry, as well as the sectors we operate in, will be invaluable.
"Having previously played a successful role in a growth focussed recruitment business, it goes without saying that Sandra brings a lot to the table. Working as part of the Leadership Team and working closely with the Board, Sandra will be tasked to deliver growth to the business centered around five key identified areas.
"We're excited. She's excited. Let's do this!"
Alex Mann, Director & Head of Tax Recruitment, adds:
"With the growth plans that we've put in place over the next five years, a lot hinged on appointing the right Head of Operations.
"As a small business, we're very selective when recruiting at Harvey John, so it wasn't just about identifying someone who can steer the ship, but someone who shares our values, engages effectively with every pocket of the business, and uses their platform to bring the out the best in the team. Sandra brings all of this into the mix, and more!
"We're delighted to welcome her to the team and I, for one, can't wait to start working closely with Sandra on the next stage of growth for Harvey John."
And Sandra is relishing the new challenge:
"I feel lucky to have found such a great team whose values and approach to recruitment so closely align with my own. I am delighted to be taking on this new strategic role to help grow the business and, together with the leadership team, we see many opportunities to grow successfully over the coming months and years."
As Head of Operations, Sandra will be responsible for driving the growth strategy for the firm and ensuring that our clients and candidates have a seamless, high-touch experience.
She is also responsible for the recruitment, induction and development of our team and one of her first priorities is to attract a highly regarded Head of Temporary Services to lead our regional interim practice.
If you are an experienced temp recruiter with vision and ambition and would like to find out more about how we can support your career development, then please do get in touch with Sandra.
Good luck Sandra!
