PRLog (Press Release) – Nov 06, 2009 – Belton, UK -- Martin Brown, the former high profile managing director of fresh produce supplier The Greenery UK, has launched a new business of his own.

Henderson Brown brings Martin Brown together with recruitment expert Steven Henderson in a new company that aims to liven up the world of food recruitment and fresh produce recruitment.

The company’s services will help clients fill posts in commercial, buying, technical, engineering, supply chain, quality assurance, NPD, production and operations functions with salaries from £18,000 per year upwards.

Henderson Brown will ‘headhunt’ candidates for senior roles where other approaches to recruitment may be less than successful – often because the high achievers who businesses wish to recruit are too focused with their current employer to be actively seeking another role. These people need a personal approach to enthuse them to explore a new opportunity.

However, Henderson Brown also aims to help clients attract individuals who are actively seeking food jobs and fresh produce jobs using well worded, targeted advertisements in the appropriate media. It is also aiming swiftly to build an extensive database of job-seekers with a proven track record from which it can (with the knowledge and consent of the candidates) offer client companies a selection of excellent individuals.

Martin Brown said: “We could write reams about what Henderson Brown’s values are and what we stand for but we maintain the belief that recruitment is a simple process which others make very complicated!

“I have always said that recruitment is one of those jobs which is simple yet is done badly. Having been on the client side – as well as being headhunted as a candidate – I have seen the pitfalls from both sides. I really think we can offer something better than is out there currently.

“Our business experience and understanding of recruitment from both a client and candidate perspective means we value candidates as highly as clients. We will be totally open and honest with both ‘sides’ and we will always respond when we have said we will do so - even if it is to say there is no news yet.”

Steven Henderson said: “We are doing this because we have spotted an opportunity to offer a no-nonsense, no-frills approach to recruitment where we will stick to basic common sense values of good communication and good judgement and sound business sense.”
