March 24, 2015 – U.K. recruitment firm Acorn has launched its new senior executive search division in response to the increasing demand it has been experiencing. The firm has appointed senior recruitment specialist Paul Bennett to head up the new division. Mr. Bennett has 25 years’ experience in the senior recruitment market, including 10 years running his own business. The senior executive search division will be based in Acorn’s head office in Newport, with assignments already being worked on U.K.-wide. The new division will work closely with its Acorn Global arm, which was launched in 2013 in order to place senior professionals internationally. “For many years Acorn has been an industry leader in many areas of recruitment including specialist areas like IT and digital, engineering and commercial; this new division will develop our business further as we support clients with their senior appointments across a range of leadership and management functions,” said Mr. Bennett. With 23 years in the business, Acorn operates from 39 branches across Wales and the South West, North West, South East and Australia.
