Next Ventures are excited to announce the appointment of Liz Mulhall-Brewer who joins the business as Head of Talent Acquisition. Liz joins NV with some great industry experience; initially starting her recruitment career as a Business Change Contracts recruiter, she then moved in-house to experience recruitment on the other side of the fence. After 2 years of working in-house, Liz moved to Cognitive Group as their Talent Manager where she was responsible for all internal hiring. After 3 successful years at CG she saw the headcount double and 95% of these hires were sourced directly.
When asked why Liz joined NV, she stated:
“What really drew me to NV was the opportunity they have to grow. NV has five niche practice areas; SAP – Data – Business Applications – Development & Integration – Cloud & Infrastructure. When you factor in that Next Ventures are building teams with geographic focus, each team is spilt into permanent and contract recruitment, they are built both locally and for their international offices, the volume of hires the business needs to make, to get strong market coverage, is much bigger than any opportunity I have had before.
In addition to the ambitious plans for growth, Next Ventures have a great story to tell. Their passion for quality, focusing always on building partnerships, never just short-term gains and nurturing creativity in their employees to go above and beyond is very refreshing. These values have attracted two recent superb hires of Nick Savage and Nick Gatenby, strengthening sales and internal employee training and development.
I have been genuinely impressed with all I’ve seen and can’t wait to add my contribution to this undoubtedly successful formula”
NV co-founder Darren Rosenfeld commented:
“Liz will be a real asset to our business, whilst her key focus is on talent attraction, she is really passionate about people development. She will enhance the great work already being done by Nick Gatenby in empowering NV staff, strengthening our position as the go-to niche technology agency in London for enthusiastic and talented recruiters."
