Futurestep opens the doors of European Talent Delivery Centre in Manchester
March 22, 2017
Location selected based on area’s growth as an international commercial hub
Manchester, 22 March, 2017 – The Futurestep division of Korn Ferry (NYSE:KFY), the preeminent global people and organisational advisory firm, has today opened the doors of its new Talent Delivery Centre (TDC). The new facility will complement Futurestep’s existing hubs and will take a lead role in the company’s regional delivery of senior and specialist recruitment services.
Located in central Manchester and based in an existing office of Korn Ferry, the Talent Delivery Centre staff will be responsible for ensuring high levels of customer satisfaction through seamless delivery and candidate management directly to clients, including GlaxoSmithKline (GSK). In a desire to better respond to business requirements and to help prepare for future recruitment demand, the pharmaceutical giant recently partnered with Futurestep to assist with hiring across its Consumer Healthcare, Global Functions and Pharmaceutical business units.
Futurestep also has plans for the deployment of consultants exclusively dedicated to its Professional Search services, delivering single and multiple professional search level hires, to complement the client solutions on offer.
“We’re proud to open up our new Talent Delivery Centre in Manchester. This will be a core capability for our European recruitment solutions,” said Jonathan Brown, Managing Director, Talent Acquisition Solutions EMEA at Futurestep. “Manchester is a thriving area, full of creativity, talent and commercial vibrancy. Reflecting a north-shoring trend, a number of high profile businesses have made the move there in recent times, cementing its position as a leading commercial hub, not just in the UK, but on the international stage. We’re excited by the prospect of seeing our company grow here and being part of Manchester’s continued growth.”
Futurestep’s operations are based in multiple locations around the world, providing technology infrastructure, industry-leading intellectual property, sourcing strategy and end-to-end recruiting resources, plus processes to support its global service delivery model. The launch of the eighth Futurestep TDC follows those already established in Texas, Buenos Aires, Warsaw, Bangalore, Manila, Shanghai and Auckland.
“The Manchester Talent Delivery Centre is a critical piece of our European and global structure,” said Kay Cooper, Vice President Key Accounts at Korn Ferry Futurestep. “Our clients are increasingly looking for more sophisticated solutions to address talent challenges. The new European hub in Manchester reflects our ambition to support clients with their evolving needs through our broader portfolio of solutions - no matter what area of the talent strategy the challenge comes from.”
