Our Manchester executive search and recruitment office serves clients and candidates in Birkenhead, Wallasey, Port Sunlight and right across Wirral and Merseyside.
Birkenhead has been a commercial hub for centuries, yet it was during the industrial revolution that the town really burst into life, serving as the base for two manufacturing giants. Established in the 1820’s, Cammell Laird shipyard would go on to launch many of England’s most famous ships, including HMS Ark Royal. And although operations have shrunk considerably, Cammell Laird is still a major employer here.
A couple of miles down the coast at Bromborough Pool, the two Lever brothers were planning their own manufacturing enterprise – a ‘start up’ that would grow to become one of the world’s greatest companies, Unilever. And the firm’s operations in Port Sunlight continue to attract leading talent from around the globe.
Although Birkenhead’s fortunes faltered in the late 20th century, the town’s proud industrial heritage remains highly visible – from the grand Birkenhead Park (the world’s first publicly funded civic park), to the village of Port Sunlight, built to provide Levers’ workers with good-quality housing, and testament to the value of good employee welfare.
Stone Executive headhunters work closely with employers and candidates across all commercial sectors and functional practices, helping employers in and around Birkenhead to hire talented senior managers and high-profile executives from across the UK and beyond.
