Red Recruitment, the specialist accountancy, contact centre and office support recruiter, has announced a major shake-up of its board.

Following the resignation of director and shareholder Neil Lewis, who left the business last week, the company that has offices in Cardiff and Bristol announced the appointment of two new board members. 

The company says, effective from Monday 23 December, Helen Warhurst (bottom right) and Jessica Taylor (bottom left) will be joining the board as finance director and operations director respectively, both having been promoted from their current senior leadership roles with Red.

Commenting on the appointments, Katy Forsyth (top left), founding director of Red with Simon Penn (top right), said: “We are absolutely delighted that Helen and Jess are joining the board at this exciting time for Red’s growth. Both bring with them a wealth of experience that will absolutely benefit Red as it continues its ambitious growth strategy and further develops itself as a leading contact centre and professional services recruitment provider throughout the UK.”
