The business require somebody outstanding and ready for a challenge. Commercial interest and outlook is vital in this ever expanding SME business.

This role is a rarely found opportunity to be a part of something big in an exciting, fast paced fashion environment. Working for inspirational leaders and seeing a business really develop, this could be an excellent move for your career.

At Macmillan Davies we take our responsibilities seriously, as we’re guardians of both our clients’ brands and our candidates’ careers.

How we deliver is just as important to us as what we provide – and the reason so many of our clients and candidates return for our advice again and again. 

Supporting your HR career every step of the way
We’re a long-term career partner to many of our candidates, supporting them as they progress from HR Assistant jobs to HR Director levels. All of which is made possible by our specialist practices. If you’re looking for a senior HR role, our Executive Resourcing practice is a specialist in the field.
