Digital People Moves Report: Summer 2019

Digital People Moves Report: Summer 2019

There have been a noticeably high level of recent leadership moves as we approach mid-summer. The majority of these appointments are UK based, which speaks of just how buoyant the digital sector remains.

We see no signs of that slowing. It’s worth noting just how many moves are from across sectors, something that I have always been a champion of, when one considers how valuable perspective is and how people tend to learn fast.

We’re currently very busy with retained leadership searches. One of our live mandates is to appoint the new position of Chief Experience Officer for an international residential living business, a role that traverses the digital & physical environments. I expect we’ll see much more of this role and appointment and it’s been fascinating panning for gold here. If you’re interested in discussing the role, or any other leadership need that falls into our area of expertise, get in touch.

Anecdotally, one of our clients recently arranged a helicopter to bring a preferred candidate to final interview, at their holiday spot!

I think that is about as Bond as headhunting will ever get.
