Acorn expands its North West division with two industry experts

Acorn, one of the UK’s leading recruitment and training agencies, has recently announced two new appointments across its North West division.

Anna Thomas-Holland, 45, joins the Hanley branch, bringing with her over 12 years of experience in the recruitment industry as well as number of years’ experience in a variety of other sectors.

Anna said: “Having worked with Acorn and it’s Stoke branch for over two months now, I’m looking forward to continuing its success by setting a good example and providing a good working environment.

“My aim is to support the existing staff, to gain a loyal pool of agency workers in the branch and to provide a service based on quality to all our clients.”

Hayley McDonough joins Acorn’s Wrexham branch as a recruitment consultant specialising in permanent, contract and temporary recruitment across a number of sectors.

Hayley, who has previous experience within the commercial, financial and account management sectors, is keen to contribute to the growth and development of similar industries across the North West and North Wales areas.

She said: “I am passionate about my own career and I am looking forward to assisting talented individuals in developing theirs. I’m really excited to be starting with such an established and well known company, and believe that I will contribute to the continuing growth of Acorn.”

Alison Birse, Head of Operations in the North of England and Wales said: “We are excited to welcome both Anna and Hayley to our North West division; Acorn is well known in the area for delivering the reliable and hardworking staff that our clients look for. Both of our new appointments are ambitious individuals and they will undoubtedly contribute greatly to the growth of the business.”
