We are delighted to be Signatories to the Voluntary Code to Improve Gender Balance in FTSE Leadership


HopkinsLongworth is delighted to be supporting the Hampton-Alexander Review, which builds on the excellent work of the Davies Review, to increase the number of women on FTSE boards and with a new focus to improve women's representation in senior leadership positions.

Although gender balance on FTSE Boards has undergone a significant shift in the last five years it is clear there is still more work to do and to sustain progress appointing more women in leadership roles below the Board, remains the longer-term challenge.

We are proud to have joined over 40 Executive Search Firms as signatories to the Voluntary Code of Conduct for Search Firms to support and encourage increasing female leadership. The full list is available to review by clicking through here

It is wonderful to see and be part of a fundamental cultural change taking place at the heart of British businesses however it is clear that we need to do more to harness the skills of women for the benefit of business and the UK economy.

HopkinsLongworth launches new Interim Practice - Specialising in HR


HopkinsLongworth has launched an Interim Practice to provide clients with highly skilled, experienced HR resources on an interim, contract or consultancy basis - often at very short notice.

Whether clients are looking for interim HR generalists or specialists in Resourcing, L&D, Change & Transformation, HopkinsLongworth can provide talented interim HR professionals, matched to the culture of an organisation, who can deliver results quickly and make an impact from the outset.

Sarah Hopkins, Director, HopkinsLongworth explains "We have an exceptional network of HR professionals and over recent months have increasingly been asked by clients to help them find talented interim HR experts to either supplement stretched in-house resources or provide temporary solution to cover for sick leave, parental leave or until a permanent candidate is able to start working in the business.

"Tapping into our network which we have built over many years and leveraging our HR sector expertise, we are able to source high calibre interim candidates quickly.  Our clients have been impressed by the speed, flexibility and cost-effectiveness of our interim offering.  Fuelled by our success and reflecting the increasingly VUCA world we are all operating in, we have decided to establish an Interim Practice at HopkinsLongworth to provide expert HR resources on a contract or consultancy basis.  We see this as a growing area of the business because HR teams are increasingly stretched."

HopkinsLongworth's Interim HR practice provides the same boutique, expert service as offered by its Executive Search team but with the focus on speed of delivery of candidates to provide additional resources to in-house HR teams.  Our HR interims are available for contracts ranging from weeks to months.

For further information please call Sarah Hopkins or Jane Longworth on 01952 771 121

Immigration policy post Brexit needs to meet business needs


The importance of the new immigration system is critical as the UK's flexible labour market is of huge benefit to our economy and any changes that will effect this will have major impact on the British economy. Much of this impact is being felt already.

A leaked draft paper has highlighted these concerns and re-enforced the need for evidence based system which meets the needs for 'low skilled' workers as shared in recent REC reports on 'Building the post-Brexit immigration system' which is an analysis of shortages, scenarios and choices and their 'Managing Migration in a way that supports labour market success' both published in June 2017.

'In all meetings with clients currently the impact of net migration is a major discussion point. Our clients are already feeling the negative impacts of Brexit with many of their employees already leaving their jobs and the UK and returning to their home country. Those EU workers that remain admit they that are left feeling 'unwelcome' to a degree and considering their future options which will generally mean a migration out of UK. Therefore businesses have major issues of engagement, staff turnover and ultimately recruitment for critical customer facing roles from a diminishing pool of candidates to address', commented Sarah Hopkins, Director HopkinsLongworth Executive Search.

As members of REC we are keen to see these issues addressed positively. For more details on the REC approach and activity please click through here
