Four new starters at NSCG in Leeds

Doug Baird, CEO, New Street Consulting Group

People advisory firm New Street Consulting Group (NSCG) has made four new hires at its Leeds office as it continues to invest in growth.

Having relocated its Harrogate office to Wellington Place last year to accommodate an expanding team, the latest round of new recruits takes the firm’s headcount in Leeds to 27 professionals.

Katie Howard has joined the firm’s executive search team as a Director after relocating from working in Amsterdam for 12 years. Previous roles have seen Katie champion workplace Diversity and Inclusion (D&I), and support organisations in traditionally male-dominated industries to improve gender balance. Katie will draw on this experience in her new role as a D&I lead for executive search in the energy sector.

She comments: “The energy sector is evolving as it embraces renewable technologies. This is rapidly changing the world’s energy mix and brings with it demand for new skills, ways of working and thinking. It’s an opportune time to accelerate the positive change we’re already seeing in terms of the sector’s diversity and inclusion, and I’m particularly looking forward to working with organisations to further enrich D&I in senior leadership roles.”

Three new appointments have been made in NSCG’s talent intelligence team in Leeds including Senior Consultant Jack Evans, Data Analytics Consultant Christopher Dutoy and Researcher Georgia Cooper-Taylor. They’ll support the team in providing organisations with insights to make data-driven decisions about talent recruitment, retention, and management strategies.

Doug Baird, CEO, said: “We’re experiencing strong demand from leaders and organisations in Yorkshire who are addressing changing ways of working and finding recruitment and talent strategy increasingly competitive and employee-led.

“Expanding our team enables us to continue to meet this growing demand and our clients are already benefiting through the enhanced depth of expertise we have in-house. As we progress with our growth plans, we’ll continue to make strategic hires that strengthen and build on our offering.”
