Estates, Facilities and Maintenance recruitment specialist, Thorn Baker Group, has welcomed back previous Branch Manager Richard Carey, to its Nottingham office. Taking up the role of Principal Consultant within the Estates, Facilities and Maintenance brand, Richard has returned to Thorn Baker following an 18 month period away from the business.
As Principal Consultant for the Estates, Facilities and Maintenance brand Richard has a passion for making sure that the right people are in the right positions and will be responsible for recruiting senior candidates into management level roles and building long lasting relationships within the facilities and building services markets. Typical placements will include Facilities Managers, Regional Managers, Contracts Manager and Operations Managers around the UK.
On returning to the Thorn Baker Group, Richard Carey said: “The chance to work with the team at Thorn Baker again is a really exciting one. As a Group, Thorn Baker has a great reputation within the market and the Estates, Facilities and Maintenance team is well established within the building maintenance and services sector. Being given the opportunity to put my 10 years of recruitment experience into practice with the best candidates and clients in the EFM market was too big of a draw to resist.”
Joanne Crampton, Head of Estates, Facilities and Maintenance at Thorn Baker added: “I am absolutely delighted to have Richard back with us in the Thorn Baker EFM brand – having known and worked with Richard for many years now, I am confident that he will strengthen our position in the senior placement market within Facilities and Property Management. Richard brings with him a wealth of knowledge and contacts throughout the industry, and an excellent reputation for matching management level candidates to the right roles.”
Based at Thorn Baker’s Nottingham headquarters, with the opportunity for remote working from his home in Southwell, Richard is excited about the prospects ahead, adding: “As a father of two, the ability to work remotely and from within the Nottingham office gives me greater flexibility and helps enormously with getting the right work/life balance. The culture of delivering a great employee experience and a customer focused service from the CEO down is even more evident today and as someone that places great emphasis on great service this is another great reason to be back here.”
Thorn Baker Group now manages the recruitment needs of companies across the UK, placing over 30,000 candidates in jobs each year.
