Successful Projects

  • Most recently, I contracted Jo Thompson Recruitment to help with our Sales Force Excellence Workshops. JTR developed a 4 day development workshop consisting of set up, content management, group exercises, facilitation and additional 1-2-1 feedback sessions for each individual on our sales team. This programme has been invaluable to provide all our sales employees with a detailed 12 month development plan. Great work Jo!’

  • Jo Thompson Recruitment recruited three senior managers – HR Director, Finance Director and Sales Director to join our Executive Management Team within a six month period. JTR instituted CEB SHL Talent Measurement tools, including a multi-constructive assessment of knowledge, skills, ability, judgement and personality, to give us a fair and structured approach to selection decisions, and to also maintain brand integrity. Also, they made significant improvements to the candidate experience with concise and open communication and developing a clearly defined recruitment process.
