Our Yorkshire executive search and recruitment office serves clients and candidates in York, Selby, Harrogate, Scarborough and right across the North Yorkshire region.
York’s economy is dominated by the service sector, with education, financial services and healthcare all major employers in the city, together with tourism, which provides more than 10% of local jobs. Yet though York boasts a strong and positive brand which helps to attract skilled professionals and executives to the city, local businesses have not been insulated from the prolonged sluggish economic growth in the north. And local leaders have been searching for innovative ways to kick-start the economy.
In March 2019, York City Council gave the green light to a radical new project designed to do precisely that – a £155 million, 15-year project called York Central, which aims to develop a derelict 110-acre site just outside the medieval city walls.
It is a bold plan with equally ambitious objectives – to create 6,500 jobs, 2,500 new homes, plus retail and commercial space, and ultimately to boost the York economy by 20% - establishing York as a key hub within the Northern Powerhouse.
Stone Executive headhunters work closely with employers and candidates across all commercial sectors and functional practices, helping employers in and around York to recruit talented senior managers and high-profile executives.
