Collingwood welcomes new member to the team

Due to the continued success and subsequent growth of Collingwood’s Building Product and Construction Practice, we are pleased to announce the appointment of Catherine Priestley to the team as Resource Associate.

Catherine’s arrival will further strengthen the work and relationships Collingwood has developed in the building product sector over the last 11 years - helping clients maintain their competitive advantage through the appointment of senior leadership and business critical roles.  In particular, over the last 12 months, we’ve seen an impressive growth of 11 %, coming as a result of both new client partnerships and repeat business.

Catherine brings with her 15 years’ experience in the recruitment industry largely in the finance sector, having partnered clients with a wide range of assignments from junior and graduate roles through to senior and board level positions. She is well versed in establishing key relationships with a broad spectrum of individuals.  Catherine worked for Hays Accountancy and Finance for 3 years before making the move to a privately owned recruitment consultancy where she spent 10 years involved in contingency and retained assignments, executive headhunting, market mapping and research assignments.

“I am delighted to welcome Catherine to the team. Her extensive experience will help us enhance our valued client relationships.  In particular Catherine’s research expertise will allow us to add yet more value to our clients through in-depth, intelligence-led headhunting.  This, in turn, will enrich the management information we provide to clients throughout our service delivery.” Mark Goldsmith, Head of Building Products and Construction.

“The appeal of Collingwood for me was the very apparent commitment to clients in delivering solutions, Collingwood has a very clear vision to become trusted advisors to businesses who engage with them and promotes a working ethos which is very rare in the executive search sector.  I am excited to be joining an organisation that values those client relationships above all and encourages partnership and participation in their strategic development.” Catherine Priestley.

Collingwood’s expansion doesn’t stop there. As our recruitment and leadership consultancy work increases so does the need for talented specialists to join our growing team, watch this space for future announcements.
