Our Manchester executive search and recruitment office serves clients and candidates in Preston, Blackburn, Burnley and right across Lancashire.
Preston was one of the birthplaces of the industrial revolution, yet as the UK moved towards a post-industrial economy, the region struggled to adapt. And despite the presence of major employers in aerospace, power generation, transport and telecommunications, the post-millennium period saw Preston suffering from high unemployment and widespread poverty.
In 2011, prompted by diverse socio-economic challenges, Preston Council committed to a co-operative initiative for economic development. And in a ground-breaking initiative led by the thinktank Centre for Local Economic Strategies (CLES), local employers have since been encouraged to anchor a greater part of their spending within the region.
The programme has proved very successful, and further initiatives include the establishment of the Preston Co-operative Network, led by experts from the University of Central Lancashire. In fact this innovative strategy to tackling post-industrial economic challenges has gained such momentum that the approach has become known as The Preston Model.
Stone Executive headhunters work closely with employers and candidates in all commercial sectors and functional practices, helping Preston employers to recruit talented managers and high-calibre senior executives from across Lancashire, the rest of the UK and beyond.
