Clayton Recruitment appoints new operations director

Preston-based Clayton Recruitment has appointed Martin Delahoyde as operation director as part of its growth strategy.

Martin has a wealth of experience in the corporate recruitment industry, having led teams and businesses at Hays, Reed Global, and more recently managed the growth at Search.

He has been appointed to drive the future growth in both the legal and commercial brands as the Clayton Group continues to develop these markets across the UK and globally.

CEO of Clayton, Lynn Sedgwick, CEO of Clayton, said: "It is an exciting time for the business and despite the impact of COVID on many businesses including ours, we are seeing our brand continue to thrive as we pivot and invest.

"As businesses see the real value of partnering with a consultancy which specialises in attracting the right talent and more recently new skills to their business as they pivot and develop their strategies in response to COVID and continue to drive growth, we have gone from strength to strength."

Martin said: "What stood out for me was Clayton’s commitment to investment in continuous improvement and aiming to be the best in class by heavily investing in their people, their products, and their processes.

"The energy and drive within the business to serve is infectious and being on that journey proved irresistible."
