MorePeople strengthens team with three new recruits

MorePeople is delighted to welcome three new members to the team as it continues to grow its portfolio of clients and build its expert industry knowledge.

Laura Parham brings a wealth of experience of the fresh produce supply chain, having worked in both procurement and technical roles for Sainsbury’s and Tesco before moving into the food manufacturing sector itself with Hain Daniels. Laura will be using her expertise of both Technical and Commercial to work on vacancies across the whole supply chain. She has made an immediate impact at MorePeople with her expertise, passion and pedigree immediately adding value, particularly with retail clients.

Harriet Blamire joined the team last summer, having graduated from Sheffield Hallam with an English degree and worked for a PR agency in London. As part of MorePeople’s growing Operations team, Harriet focuses on operational roles in the food sector including production, warehouse, engineering, farm and harvest management. Harriet has also hit the ground running quickly and made several quality placements with some key clients.

Claire Smith started in November as Marketing Manager and will lead on marketing initiatives and increasing brand awareness. Claire has a CIM Postgraduate Diploma in Marketing and spent ten years working in e-commerce before moving to a more general marketing role for a skills brokerage, encouraging businesses to engage with schools to inform and inspire young people about future careers.

Andrew Fitzmaurice, Managing Director of MorePeople, said: “We are really pleased to add this broad range of high-calibre experience to our team as we continue to grow our business and support clients with their recruitment challenges.”

“We are now a team of 16, which includes a mixture of career recruiters and ex-industry professionals. What makes us different is that we are all passionate about our sectors and helping our candidates and clients to find the best people for the right jobs, be it at junior manager or senior board director level.”

MorePeople is based in Stamford, Lincolnshire, but deals with clients and candidates both nationally and internationally. Working with most of the UK’s major multiple retailers and their suppliers across the fresh produce, horticulture, food, agriculture and garden & leisure sectors, MorePeople’s focus is on supermarket supply chains, from ‘own label’ suppliers to blue chip brands.
