iSource Group, the IT, digital and change management recruitment specialist, has appointed Connor Astbury and Lorna Hardcastle as Delivery Consultants to meet with the growing demand from new and existing clients.
Previously working as a Trainer at Capita, Connor will take responsibility for finding and liaising with suitable candidates, identifying those that have the necessary skills and talent required by clients across a range of sectors.
He comments: “I have been looking for a new challenge and the role at iSource Group gave me that opportunity. Although I’m working in a new sector, the team have been great at answering my questions and showing me the ropes.
“I’m looking forward to learning new skills and to using the systems and processes we have in place to help more clients find the candidates they need to expand their own businesses.”
Previously working for Sky Connect as a Complaints Handler and as a Business Development Manager at a data centre, Lorna has worked alongside technical and digital specialists for some time and will bring her transferable skills and network of contacts to the role.
She will focus on identifying relevant candidates, arranging interviews, liaising with clients’ and managing relationships between prospects and the businesses that are relying on iSource Group to find the talent they are looking for.
Having heard good things about iSource Group, Lorna wanted to join a business that had a strong reputation for supporting and nurturing the careers of its employees.
She said: “I’m really looking forward to learning new skills and to developing my career in the recruitment sector. I like to challenge myself and know that this role will allow me to do that. I have a lot to learn but am already enjoying getting on the phones to clients and candidates.
“I had heard good things about iSource and wanted to join a business that would support my career progression. It’s important to me to be part of a strong team and given the welcome I’ve had from everyone I know that is the case here.”
Managing Director of iSource Group, Geoff Shepherd, said: “Both Connor and Lorna are great additions to our team and are already supporting candidates to find roles that meet with their career ambitions, while delivering the resource our growing list of clients require.
“We have had six months of sustainable growth at iSource Group, with extended briefs from existing clients and new customers coming on board too. We are looking forward to expanding our team further as we secure more business throughout 2022.”
