Simon Acres Group has taken on a new recruitment consultant, which the company says is in order to enhance the breadth of experience within the team as it continues to grow.
Katie Price was previously working in an in-house recruitment role with a large supplier of building materials to the UK's building and construction industry, operating a network of over 640 branches and 200 tool-hire outlets.
"Katie is a great addition to our company," said Aiden Cowell, head of recruitment at Simon Acres Group. "She has significant knowledge of the merchant sector and also brings an understanding of the client's perspective from her experience of working in-house."
Price said: "I am delighted to be joining such a progressive and dynamic company as Simon Acres Group. Their client-focused ethos is exceptional, which resonates with my own drive to excel, striving to exceed client expectations rather than meet their needs."
