With my experience of building performance marketing infrastructures, increasing conversion and growth through fresh initiatives, I am confident we can surpass the targets we have set for ourselves in 2022 and beyond.”
The business recently hosted round table panel discussion at KPMG’s Headquarters in Manchester with some of the region’s thought leaders in recruitment including KPMG, TalkTalk, Summize and App Learn to discuss the findings from its Great Renegotiation research report looking into the recruitment challenges facing organisations in today’s market.
