Announcing a new Head of People

Explore Group is very excited to announce the appointment of Sian Owen, as Group Head of People.

In the past 18 months, Explore Group has undergone a review which has culminated in a major rebrand and the creation of a new vision and strategy.  This strategy includes an exciting 5 year growth plan which will enable us to grow to 5 x our size within that period.

A key ingredient for our success will be the continued development and strengthening of our recruitment strategy and training programmes.  In order to facilitate exceptional growth and to ensure that all new trainees receive the best in class support and training we resolved that finding the right person to lead it was an absolute priority.

We spent six months interviewing various high level experienced leaders determined to find the person who could help facilitate our vision - and we are glad to announce that we have found that person in Sian.

Sian joins the group with a similar outlook and aspiration - to be part of a growing specialist recruitment firm - having spent 8 years in the industry working with major brands who’ve experienced rapid growth and enormous financial success.  She will head up the Internal Recruitment team (driving the acquisition of highly talented new recruitment consultants) while developing our established training programme for graduate hires and further improving the leadership, coaching, support and training programmes. 

We wish Sian well in her early weeks as she gets to know the Explore Group culture and processes and are thrilled to have a strategic thinking, highly talented senior leader on board!
