Finlay James expands Birmingham branch

National Executive Search firm Finlay James is looking to capitalise on growth in the technology market by expanding its Birmingham presence.

Specialists in IT senior sales, Finlay James moved into new bespoke offices, on Hagley Road, in October following a strong first year of growth. The Executive Search consultancy launched its third UK office in Birmingham in September 2010.

The Midlands branch is now looking to expand its head count in each of the next four quarters as it looks to grow on the back of emerging areas of technology.

Richard Gibbard, branch manager, said: “Things have gone better than expected in Birmingham. It was always going to be hard work establishing a new branch but we have brought in some key clients and now have an established base in the city.

“There are now more senior sales vacancies in the market with growth coming in software, especially financial software, as well as virtualisation and cloud businesses. With the market is going in the right direction, we are looking to add a couple of new heads each quarter.”

The Birmingham branch has already taken on two new starters. Pritesh Patel has been brought in as an executive search consultant after four years working with Emerald Technology. University of Nottingham law degree graduate Chris Brooks has also started as an account executive.

Gibbard said: “The new office has enabled us to bring in people of the calibre of Pritesh. Chris has also come in and been instrumental in establishing relationships with a number of big clients, encouraging them to take advantage of our new facilities. The new bespoke interview suites are already proving popular with clients and have so far produced a 100% successful rate for them.”

Finlay James is actively seeking to expand its Executive Search consultancy team in Birmingham and is offering £1000 for successful referrals.
