Digital People Moves Report: Autumn / Winter 2019

Digital People Moves Report: Autumn / Winter 2019

Between August and mid-November these individuals have started new positions – a very encouraging read on how buoyant the digital executive job market in the UK economy is currently, with no signs of that slowing from where we stand.

It’s also really encouraging to read of people moving across sectors and to witness executive boards and their investors looking to employ executives in key leadership roles from completely different sectors. I put so much value in fresh perspective, no assumptions and the power afforded to incoming appointments getting to ask all the basic questions of the remit and business. So vital in my view if the hires are expected to make a big impact on how things are to be done better, smarter and often simpler.

We’re all fortunate to work in one of the most vibrant spaces in both the local and global economy regardless of what role you play within Digital, Technology, Innovation, Growth Start-Up’s and Transformation.

If we can help you with your leadership hiring needs across our area of expertise, be it permanent, interim, or non-exec appointments, get in touch.
