• A specialist recuitment agency for transport executives has been set up by Howard Packham and Associates (Consultants) Ltd, 292 High Holborn, London WC1.
Mr Philip Packham told CM recently that he and his colleagues had decided there was a real need for a specialized executive recruitment service to be operated as part of more general consultancy services. The market for transport executives—particularly in the higher echelons—was growing, he said, and a specialist recruitment agency run by people with operating and business experience was likely to succeed.
In particular, a consultant's experience could often be decisive in picking the right man out of two or three comparable applicants in, for example, the selection of a senior transport or distribution executive.
The HPA service calls for payment by results; if no appointment is made thc employer is out of pocket for the preliminar advertising expenses, but that is all. The fec charged to an employer who uses th( service is 10 per cent of the executive' salary, payable when the appointment h taken up, plus the advertising and tilt expenses involved in short-listed applicant! travelling for interviews.
Employers are asked to complete comprehensive job specification form, an arrangements can be made for the whoh initial advertising for staff to be conductet confidentially, without resort to boi numbers.
