Claire Sofield appointed managing director at Four Recruitment

Claire Sofield has taken on the managing director role at Four Recruitment, the business she founded with brother Phil in 2008.

Claire will now focus on the growth of the business whilst Phil, as operations director, will focus on training, development and day-to-day operations.

The management restructure will allow the finance, executive and HR search specialist to explore new growth opportunities and revenue streams.

Claire said: "The past year has forced us to really think about our current business structure. Covid19 encouraged us to develop new areas such as our business support division, adapt our sales and marketing strategy and launch new products specific to what our clients now require.

"The continued growth and strength of our management team and promotion of key directors for each division has enabled us to focus more strategically on the future of Four which has led to the change in our management structure. There are many unique and diverse opportunities we are looking to pursue and my change in role will enable me to really focus on this."

Co-owner Phil Sofield added: "2020 was a challenging year but a year that has really enabled us to focus on the future of Four.

“There are more challenges to face during the first part of this year with a new lockdown, but there are some fantastic positives to take. In November we achieved one of our highest revenues in our 13-year history.

"Recruitment is still very much happening, and we want to ensure we take advantage of all the opportunities that are out there, Claire will ensure that happens."
