Red Diamond Executive Headhunters has announced ‘outstanding’ growth figures, paving the way for further expansion.

The agency is headquartered in Huddersfield, and specialises in placing business leaders and senior management in roles across the globe. 

Under the directorship of founder Emma Robinson and her husband Simon Robinson, Red Diamond has increased turnover by 56% compared with last year’s figures, which themselves were up by 30% on the previous year.

The company has grown throughout lockdown, with the team working remotely to make key appointments in a wide range of sectors, including aerospace, health and beauty, construction materials, modular housing and manufacturing.

Red Diamond is now poised to expand further, with plans in the pipeline to launch a new mid-market arm of the business to operate alongside the headhunting division over the summer.

Recent key placements include two technical directors in the electrical sector and a number of placements across Europe in the aerospace industry. Two sales directors, a financial director, an entire sales team for a growing aviation business and three director-level roles with a FTSE top 100 company have all been successfully appointed.

Emma said Red Diamond – which celebrates its 10th anniversary this year – had seen a rise in demand from organisations looking to bolster their senior teams.

She added that the business’s global portfolio had enabled it to continue working even at the height of the UK lockdown. “As an international business, parts of the world have been opening up faster than we have been in the UK, so we have experienced a year-round demand for talented senior leaders.

“This has helped us achieve outstanding results this year despite the global pandemic. And as the UK emerges from restrictions, some big hitters are already announcing their intention to recruit, which is really positive. The news that the economy grew by 2.1% in March is also cause for optimism that we are beginning to get back on track.

“The value of talented leaders has been evident throughout the pandemic and will be even more apparent as organisations look to rebuild and recover from the effects of Covid-19.”
