Global agency Red Diamond Executive Headhunters is continuing to expand, with the appointment of a marketing lead and a general manager for the mid-market recruitment arm of the business.

Shannon Liu joins the Huddersfield-based team from the Roxor Group. Her remit includes co-ordinating digital marketing and social media activities.

Carol Mosby has been appointed general manager for the recently established Red Diamond Recruitment, that also operates from head office with clients in a wide range of sectors, including manufacturing, financial services, construction products and electronics. Carol will use her 20 years’ experience of recruiting and executive search to bridge the gap between recruitment and headhunting.

Red Diamond founder and director Emma Robinson said further appointments were in the pipeline, with at least two further recruits expected to be brought in by end of year.

Emma confirmed that both sides of the business were experiencing high demand, with some clients looking to recruit entire teams to fill posts left vacant as a result of the pandemic and Brexit.

Emma said: “This quarter, we have experienced a notable increase in demand for our services. Where clients may have asked us to look at one position, in some cases we are now being asked to recruit whole teams.

“Lockdown has given people a chance to reflect on their work life balance and this has resulted in some deciding they want a change in direction, start a lifestyle business or simply to retire and spend more time with their family.

“This in turn is prompting chief executives to consider how they will future-proof their businesses, to think about type of candidates they will need going forward, to identify potential skills gaps – and whether or not some roles will even be relevant in the future.”

Shannon commented: “This is an exciting time to join the Red Diamond team and I’m looking forward to helping to drive the business forward.”

Carol added: “I am delighted to be heading up Red Diamond Recruitment, the newest addition to the Red Diamond family. With a great team and the latest technology, we are bridging the gap between headhunting and recruiting, becoming the trusted partner of choice for our clients.”

Red Diamond Executive Headhunters was founded in 2011 and has enjoyed a raft of recent client wins across the aerospace, health and beauty and construction products sectors. For further information, visit
