Promotions and seasoned hires at Change
Brian Burnett has been promoted, from financial controller to head of finance. With eight years at Change, and 15 in the recruitment sector, Brain is well placed to drive the firm’s commercial and financial focus under the revised senior management structure.
Dean Durrant has been promoted, from senior consultant to principal consultant. Mr Durrant has been a high performing consultant within the group for a number of years, playing a key role in the organisation’s success with high profile corporate clients and senior candidates.
Lynne Strang has been appointed managing consultant, following 14 years with a global recruitment brand in a standalone role managing its pharmaceutical and business support specialisms in Scotland and the North East. Ms Strang is a highly motivated and experienced recruiter who will manage and develop the existing business support team in Glasgow supporting key accounts and challenging new business.
Clare Brennan has also been appointed managing consultant. Leaving behind 16 years with Hays, she brings with her a wealth of knowledge and experience in accountancy and finance recruitment. Ms Brennan will head Change’s Glasgow based accountancy and finance team.
Mark McFall, group managing director (pictured), said: “This year our focus is about growth and transformation and guaranteeing a better client and candidate experience. We are positioned as the listening partner our clients turn to time and again as they return to growth.
“Our client’s main concerns are quality and trust, and the experienced team we have gathered together is enviably placed when it comes to delivering the candidates they need in the timeframe required. Change Recruitment Group is in a better place now than it has ever been.”
These newly created positions mark another milestone in an evolutionary year for Change which will see headcount grow by 20-25% across the 65-strong group, spread between Glasgow and Edinburgh.
The business will also move its expanding Edinburgh team to new premises, launch specialisms and reach into new markets – all moves dictated by market upturn, and heightened demand.
