Supply chain and transport consultancy George Henderson Recruitment, starts 2008 with the launch of a new public sector practice.
The practice will provide central and local government, public transport operators and transport planning and engineering professional services with a dedicated resourcing and recruitment solution.
Spearheading the new business will be managing director, Jason Vallint. Aged 36 and from Buckinghamshire, Jason joins George Henderson with significant consultancy and policy development experience, having spent the last three years leading the transport programme management business at the energy and environmental consultancy, AEA Plc and the previous six years with the world famous Transport Research Laboratory.
“Jason's extensive experience will add real value to the George Henderson team,” comments Henderson's Chairman and industry statesman, Jim Cleary. “We are delighted that we have secured his services, as he brings industry recognition and a broad network of contacts that complement our existing business areas. This new business forms part of our strategy to become the leading recruitment service for the transport and supply chain industries,” comments Jim.
Jason added “As transport has risen up the political agenda, so too has the demand for transport professionals within the public sector. In recognition of this trend, the George Henderson team is well placed to extend its expertise to both public sector transport employers and practitioners. I am therefore committed to working with clients to find the right people that can make a real difference to transport issues and raising the profile of the public sector as a career choice for transport professionals”.
