  • We retained Change to make a strategic appointment of a Finance Director. Working across the relevant people in our senior team, our consultant had a thorough knowledge of the role needs, and delivered an incredible shortlist of candidates. We were able to move to the final stage of a very professional and smooth process and appointed a stellar candidate.

    Leading Aquaculture Industry Supplier

  • Over the last two decades we have transitioned a number of key functions to our Glasgow base. These transitions have had a massive "people" impact in terms of establishing and shaping our functions, and during this time we have worked incredibly closely with Change to provide our business with not only local labour market insight, but more importantly an excellent flow of candidates.
