The Wadenhoe Associates

Finding The Best Talent... Everytime!
As clients and regular readers will know, our Wadenhoe focus is first-and-foremost on identifying and developing talent from within the organisation. However, sometimes new strategies demand new capabilities and there's a need to look outside. Also, every external recruitment provides the opportunity to bring in new talent with further potential for internal development later.

We are very pleased to announce our new association with XECUTIVE SEARCH, who have an exceptional track record in this area. XECUTIVE SEARCH HR is a Human Resources Consultancy, working with Directors and key senior executives in General Management, Sales, Marketing, Operations, Finance, Human Resources and Supply Chain Management functions. Their activities are focused in specialist industry sectors: Property/Construction, Energy, Multi Site Distribution, Automotive, Wholesale, Retail, and Manufacturing.
