Gareth Edwards completes recruitment for 4 Contract Directors

Gareth Edwards at Mantaray Executive has successfully completed the recruitment campaigns for FOUR new Contract Director’s with top 30 UK Universities, on behalf of a leading contract catering company.
Mantaray were retained to assist with role identification and profiling for the new Contract Directors, who will lead on all catering and soft services management.
Gareth Edwards conducted a search campaign that involved mapping of the market and competitor landscape, identifying a long list of potentially suitable candidates, confidentially approaching those individuals and then in a process of ‘positive deselection’ and against an agreed framework of profiling criteria, removing candidates until only a shortlist of the 4 strongest, most relevant candidates in the market remained. These were then presented for interview, from which one was appointed for each role.
