Outsource UK has today announced that Paul Jezzard is appointed as their new Chief Financial Officer with immediate effect; having initially joined the business in an interim capacity in November 2018.
His appointment follows over 10 years in the recruitment industry as a qualified accountant. Paul started his finance career at Summit Therapeutics before moving to join Capita Resourcing where he spent eight years in a variety of senior roles. Paul has a wealth of experience in merger and acquisition activity and more recently successfully secured private equity funding to lead a MBO and divestment of the Education, Social Care and Healthcare resourcing divisions from Capita plc. The business was successfully sold in October 2018.
Paul joins Outsource UK at an exciting time in its history, having seen its fifth year of consecutive growth and a 17% uplift in CAGR over this period. The company remains committed to further organic growth along with exploring acquisition opportunities.
