Ex-Lingarden boss Martin Brown forms recruitment company

Former managing director of flower company Lingarden Martin Brown has launched a new recruitment business, Henderson Brown.

Brown and recruitment consultant Steven Henderson will aim to fill commercial, buying, technical, engineering, supply chain, quality assurance, new product development, production and operations functions with salaries from £18,000 per year upwards.

Henderson Brown will headhunt candidates for senior roles.

However, Henderson Brown aims to help clients attract individuals who are actively seeking employment using "well-worded, targeted advertisements in the appropriate media".

Brown said: "We could write reams about what Henderson Brown's values are and what we stand for, but we maintain the belief that recruitment is a simple process that others make very complicated.

"I have always said that recruitment is one of those jobs that is simple, yet is done badly. Having been on the client side — as well as being headhunted as a candidate — I have seen the pitfalls on both sides. I really think we can offer something better than is out there currently.

 "Our business experience and understanding of recruitment from both a client and candidate perspective means we value candidates as highly as clients. We will be totally open and honest with both ‘sides' and we will always respond when we have said we will do so — even if it is to say there is no news yet."
