CIPD Qualified Recruiter Joins JVP Group as Head of Client Support


Following strong growth in the first half of 2019, recruitment marketing specialists JVP Group have announced the appointment of Natalie Wood as Head of Client Support.

Natalie said

“I’ve been familiar with JVP’s unique approach to recruitment marketing for many years, and with my background working within a recruitment agency and as an in-house recruiter and HR professional – it’s been no surprise to see the success of the business to date and the prestigious client base developed so far.

“I’ve experienced first-hand the challenges that employers face when it comes to attracting talent, with the skills shortage being a real concern across many industries. For me, joining JVP and being able to provide effective and efficient solutions and work closely with employers to transform their recruitment strategies, is truly rewarding because I know how much of a difference it can make. Far from the recruitment agency approach, I’m delighted that for JVP clients I can be an advocate for the identities of the amazing employers recruiting, which in turn helps those employers attract the very best people on the market by showcasing their employer brand.”

The award winning JVP Group has built a reputation for successfully working with employers across the UK to deliver effective in-house recruitment strategies, enabling their clients to directly attract talent whilst saving thousands of pounds by not having to use recruitment agencies.

We’re delighted to have her on board as we enter a crucial phase in our growth plan.”

“In our 6th year of trading, strong growth has enabled us to recently invest into brand new high-tech offices and superb facilities which we’ll soon be moving to, cutting-edge technology, and team growth and development – and in addition to Natalie joining us we’re currently looking to take on a graduate who we can develop for the long term and join us on our exciting journey.”
