Over the last eight years, Berwick Partners has built a strong reputation amongst senior HR professionals, which has been achieved through the work of both the HR team, and colleagues in other practice areas.
Our HR Practice until recently had three fee-earners; Basil leRoux, Jane Firth and Milly Black. Basil joined us in early 2017 as Head of Practice and is based in Manchester, Jane joined in 2016 and sits in London; and Milly joined in January 2019. Jane has recently been offered an opportunity to move internally into the HR Practice at Odgers Berndtson. We now seek to replace her role by recruiting an established consultant to join the team. The successful candidate will be an experienced professional, with the confidence to win and transact retained business.
Examples of recent assignments:

Thus, we challenge the brief, the role profile, and ensure the remuneration package is built to secure the right hire at the right level. There will be a focus on developing clients in order to win and transact assignments nationally. This individual will work closely with regional colleagues, Partners in the firm's HR Practice and the Odgers Berndtson, Berwick and Interim teams generally to network and develop opportunities. This role has a national remit and could be based from any of our offices. It will report into Basil leRoux, Partner and Head of HR Practice.
