Our Bristol executive search and recruitment office serves clients and candidates in Newport, Cwmbran , Chepstow, and across Gwent and the rest of South Wales
Like many British towns that once relied on traditional heavy industries, Newport suffered from a slow decline in the post-war years. Workers who had served the steel and coal firms so well found they lacked the transferrable skills required by a new generation of high-tech employers, and as a result, economic growth faltered.
Thanks to an indomitable local spirit plus a clear framework for future development, the Newport economy proved more resilient than some had feared. And today, the town is home to Airbus Defence and Space - world leaders in cybersecurity and communications. While other big employers include blue-chip insurers and innovative online aggregator GoCompare.
Yet Newport is perhaps most famous for hosting the headquarters of two of the UK’s most eminent public sector organisations, the Office for National Statistic, and the United Kingdom Intellectual Property Office (formerly the Patent Office), who compete alongside Newport’s private sector firms for the region’s brightest talent.
Stone Executive headhunters work closely with employers and candidates across all commercial sectors and functional practices, helping employers in and around Newport to hire talented senior managers and high-profile executives from across Wales, the rest of the UK and beyond.
