A major development in the growth of DHL International was to establish a start-up airline in the UK to be called DHL Air Limited
We needed a reliable business partner to manage the entire recruitment and selection process, beginning with a team of directors and extending to pilots and ground crew at both managerial and operational grades.
We selected Walton Churchill to handle this extensive assignment because they were known to a senior DHL manager as thorough and quality driven company who would ‘grasp the nettle’ and appoint key personnel needed to get our new airline ‘off the ground’!
The initiative shown by Walton Churchill’s team of consultants allowed our senior managers to focus their time and energies on the regulatory and strategic issues critical to our business. Walton Churchill also provided interim Human Resource management for 6 months prior to the recruitment of our own HR team. We quickly grew to have the utmost confidence in the selection process established by Walton Churchill which included both an executive search and advertised approach. The result is an integrated team who have been successful in growing the business to its current level of 150 people.
The maturity and breadth of experience of Walton Churchill’s personnel and the commitment and depth of involvement shown by the consultants was first class and I would recommend them, unreservedly, above some of the more ‘household’ names in the HR and Recruitment Consultancy market.
