November, 2016

Second Talent Delivery Centre launched in Europe brings global total to eight

London, 7 November, 2016 – The Futurestep division of Korn Ferry (NYSE:KFY), the preeminent global people and organisational advisory firm, has announced the launch of a new European Talent Delivery Centre based in Manchester, UK. Bringing the global total to eight, the centre is responsible for delivering excellence in high volume, professional and senior level hires, and will further enhance Futurestep’s current European business growth.

“Our Talent Delivery Centres around the world are a critical and valued part of the Futurestep infrastructure. The capabilities and expertise collated in these centres allow us to provide sophisticated, flexible and efficient recruitment solutions that deliver real impact to our clients.” said Jonathan Brown, Managing Director, Talent Acquisition Solutions EMEA. “Recognised as the number one Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) provider in 2016’s Baker’s Dozen list, the Manchester centre supports our other delivery centres in reinforcing the truly global recruitment capability that drives Futurestep’s leadership in its industry.”

Futurestep’s delivery centres are based in multiple locations around the world, providing technology infrastructure, research, sourcing and end to end recruiting resources, plus best-practice processes to support Futurestep’s global service delivery model. The launch of the eighth Talent Delivery Centre follows those already established in Texas, Buenos Aires, Warsaw, Bangalore, Manila, Shanghai and Auckland.

Teams within the centre will be responsible for ensuring high levels of customer satisfaction through seamless delivery and candidate management to both onsite Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) team as well as directly to the clients. The centre will provide new career opportunities across Executive Search, RPO and support roles and is scheduled to open early next year. Futurestep is already recruiting for a number of Recruiter positions, a ‘Recruitment Delivery Manager’ plus other opportunities in the sourcing and learning space. Those interested are encouraged to apply through the Futurestep website’s careers section.

The Talent Delivery Centres have enabled Futurestep to build a deeper capability for its recruitment solutions and to establish proactive relationships with candidates in markets around the world. One of the key advantages to the model is its ability to scale operations quickly in response to growing client needs.

“Futurestep’s Manchester Talent Delivery Centre plays a key role in our ability to deliver world-class solutions to clients in the United Kingdom and throughout the European region,” said Kay Cooper VP Key Accounts, EMEA. “With a continuing strong demand for talent across Europe, this opening not only strengthens our services and capabilities in Europe, but also caters to our present and future clients’ need for relevant resources and expertise.”
