Learning & Development Headhunters

In an increasingly competitive world, businesses are realising the importance of learning and development initiatives, and by aligning with a clear business strategy, can help ensure their employees are more motivated, more productive and better skilled to provide their business with a market leading edge.

By investing in learning and development, businesses can improve their staff retention rates, and thereby significantly reducing costs across the board. A 2014 CIPD survey highlighted that the number of organisations measuring return on investment from learning and development practices has increased from 26% to 48%, with over 50% saying business knowledge and commercial awareness is critical to success in learning and development.

But it's not always easy to find the right calibre individual who can bring an understanding of both the commercial awareness and the business strategy. We know how important it is to get the right balance of skills to ensure your business will see a return on investment. Some of the roles we have successfully recruited for previously in this sector include:

  • HR Director
  • Head of Talent
  • Senior Talent Manager
  • Senior Learning and Development Manager
