Introducing the Speciality Chemicals specialists

​Over the past few months, Eleven Recruitment has made some strategic hires within the company, significantly growing the Speciality Chemicals team. The growth of this team is a direct reflection of the market and we can't help but share the excitement that surrounds this expanding sector.

Introducing our new team members:

David Hoggart – Divisional Manager
David brings with him 8 years of technical recruitment and management experience of engineering, scientific and manaufacturing disciplines in the chemicals industry. He has been brought in to develop and grow the team, as well as our overall client offering.
David said: “I decided to make the move as I really bought into Eleven’s commitment to candidate and client service, as well as the fact that they survey their unplaced candidates! I thought this was genius. As obviously the candidates you place think you’ve done a great job! But surveying unplaced candidates is a real indicator that you have delivered the same great service throughout the process and with every candidate. Whether I place a candidate or not, I would want them to think of me the next time they are looking move.”

Danielle McConnell – Account Manager
Dani comes with technical engineering recruitment experience across the high hazardous industries both in the UK and Internationally, from a delivery and account management perspective. Joining us at the beginning of the year, she has really hit the ground running, already developing relationships with candidates and clients, that have led to plenty of interviews in a really difficult time.
