Our Manchester executive search and recruitment office serves clients and candidates in Blackburn, Accrington, Rossendale and right across Lancashire.
Blackburn once sat at the forefront of manufacturing innovation – its thriving textile companies setting new standards in quality and productivity. However, like many towns that experienced great commercial success in the pre-war years, growth began to falter as Britain shifted to a more service-based economy.
But Blackburn learned to evolve, and the town’s manufacturing firms now look very different to the cotton mills that closed down during the 1960’s and 1970’s. And the town’s high-tech capability is epitomised by BAE Systems’ Military Air and Information advanced manufacturing and technology facility, based at the Samlesbury Aerodrome - a genuinely world-leading operation.
Yet despite remaining an important asset in the region, manufacturing is now dwarfed by other sectors, with public services, retail, construction and healthcare providing the bulk of the town’s employment opportunities. And as TfNT’s vision for pan-Northern strategic transport enhancements are rolled out, improved links to Manchester and the surrounding towns will help fuel the Northern Powerhouse.
Stone Executive headhunters work closely with employers and candidates in all commercial sectors and functional practices, helping Blackburn employers to recruit talented managers and high-calibre senior executives from across Lancashire, the rest of the UK and beyond.
