Headcount increases at Hortor as business continues to expand

Ryan Jones

Hortor, the resourcing and managed service consultancy headquartered in Leeds, has appointed Ryan Jones as strategic development manager and Patrick Barrow as recruitment resource associate.

Previously a business account manager for an online retail company, Ryan is no stranger to working with multiple clients on complex briefs, a skill he will be transferring to his new role.

His responsibilities at Hortor will include building a network of relevant contacts, both client side and candidates. He will also identify vacancies and support organisations within the FinTech sector to appoint candidates that support their longer-term growth strategies.

Ryan said: “When I first noticed the job at Hortor it sounded like a great opportunity. I followed this up by speaking to two members of the team and was convinced that it was right for me and my career ambitions.”

“I’m looking forward to working in Leeds city centre and to starting a new challenge in a new role. Learning new skills and about the FinTech sector makes this all the more exciting.”

Patrick will join Hortor on a year-long placement from university. His responsibilities will include gathering marketing insight, developing e-shots and assisting the wider team with client pitches. He will also approach prospective clients and identify any opportunities there may be to work together.

He said: “This is a great opportunity for me. Not only do I get to expand my professional experience and work for a fast-paced and growing company, I also get access to opportunities that I simply wouldn’t be able to as a student.

“I’m looking forward to getting to know the team better and to having some nights out with them. It’s great to know that the culture at the business really promotes that balance of working hard and having some fun.”

Chief operating officer at Hortor, Andy Roe, said: “We would like to welcome Jack and Patrick to the team. It’s great to see that we are continuing to expand the business and that the experiences and professional backgrounds of all of our colleagues differ so much. It is important to us that we continue to attract leading talent and that our culture remains to work really hard but to recognise that our colleagues will be rewarded for their efforts.”
