UK Operations Director, Denholm UK

We had a vacancy for a high profile General Manager to work on one of our biggest accounts in a 500,000 sqft Grocery Distribution Operation. After we had exhausted internal and direct hire options we partnered with Detail2Recruitment. I was presented with a shortlist of the highest quality candidates, that also impressed the client. The candidate we ended up appointing has added significant value beyond our expectations. We will continue to work with Detail2 in the future.
