A final look at 2018

A Moment Of Reflection…

With the Christmas festivities just around the corner, office parties happening up and down the country and a general feeling of good cheer in the air, it’s sad to think that some people won’t be having such a good time of things.

Do you remember back in January? Resonate Search and Selection were invited by a client of ours, MHS Homes, to take part in a sponsored sleepout. The idea was to raise money for the Homeless and raise awareness. We worked with the Charity, Porchlight, to help raise their profile and also bring in money to help with food, toiletries and hostel accommodation.

With the weather sure to take a turn for the worse soon, we thought it was worth reminding our followers about this fantastic cause. If you want to learn more about Porchlight or arrange a similar event, please

We’ve Been Working With Some Superb New Clients…And Some Firm Favourites!

Moving on to business, 2018 has been kind to Resonate Search and Selection. We’ve enjoyed a great mix of high-level roles and made placements from Senior Manager through to Director and Chairman positions.

Our thorough search and selection process has ensured businesses we’ve worked with previously have all come back to instruct new assignments this year. Favourites of ours such as MHS Homes, Your Housing Group, Morrisons, Organix, Bibby Group, SMG Group and Culina are all firms that we’ve worked with before and we’ll take great delight in working with again and again.

New business generation and leveraging our excellent reputation has also been a priority in 2018. We’ve had the pleasure of working with new clients, including Orbit Housing and Juvela, on challenging and enjoyable senior search projects.

An Exciting Extra-Curricular Activity For Alison…

One of our founding Directors, Alison Cannon, has recently been appointed a Governor at SK College Group.

The fact she was asked is a great personal achievement and we’re all right behind her. In fact, we’re convinced that she will bring her energy and enthusiasm for work into this important new position.

SK College Group has a mission to transform lives through education and training. Alison’s experience of commercial activities and strategic direction is sure to help drive further performance improvements for the group.

A Merry Christmas And A Happy New Year

Finally, we’d like to sign the year off with a huge thank you to all of our clients, candidates and suppliers for working with us through 2018.

We’re very excited for the prospects 2019 will bring and we’re committed to continue providing the very best executive search service available.

For now, we wish you all a very merry Christmas and a happy and safe New Year.

Here’s to a successful 2019!


"Resonate conducted a search for BFFF after their own extensive efforts had failed to find a credible shortlist. They delivered a quality shortlist with 3 appointable candidates being found. Throughout the process Resonate kept us well informed and consulted effectively at every stage. I would have no hesitation in recommending their services or using them again".
