HIRING HUB APPOINTS RECRUITMENT INDUSTRY VETERAN, PETER SEARLE, AS CHAIRMAN

Recruitment platform, Hiring Hub, has appointed industry veteren Peter Searle as Chairman.

With over 30 years’ experience in the recruitment sector, Searle was the CEO of Adecco (UK & Ireland) for more than ten years, and Spring Group in between 2006 and 2009.

In addition to Hiring Hub, Searle is the Executive Chairman of Airswift and a Non-Executive Director of fellow Manchester-based recruitment tech company, Broadstone.

Hiring Hub is ranked among the UK’s top companies in the recruitment sector by independent review site Trustpilot. The marketplace is used by over 500 employers, including Deliveroo, Dyson and SSE, who use Hiring Hub’s network of vetted, rated and reviewed recruitment agencies to find quality candidates for hard-to-fill roles.

Based in Manchester’s Northern Quarter, Hiring Hub raised a further round of investment from existing investors Maven Capital Partners, VentureFounders, and Manchester Tech Trust Angels late last year, and is led by Founder and CEO, Simon Swan.

Swan said: “Peter is excited by our vision to place transparency and trust at the heart of recruitment. Our goal has always been to champion the value of recruitment agencies while using technology to facilitate better relationships between them and employers. Peter is right behind our mission, validating Hiring Hub’s ambition to make people feel good about recruitment.”

“Peter’s knowledge of both the recruitment industry and scaling companies is exceptional,” continued Swan. “He joins Hiring Hub at an exciting time. It has weathered the pandemic well and Peter supports the company’s plan to expand its products and services to further grow what is an enviable client base and recruiter community, capitalising on employers’ shift to web-based platforms.”

Searle, joins former N Brown boss Angela Luger and the ex-MD of Lorien PLC, Ian Brookes, on Hiring Hub’s Board as the company looks to use the recruitment sector’s Covid-accelerated transition to cloud-based recruitment platforms to its advantage.
