National corporate and public sector specialist recruitment company, Insight Executive Group (Members of the Institute of Recruiters – IOR), have announced the appointment of former Olympian, Robert Parker, as head of property and FM recruitment. Parker, who was a professional athlete for seven years, represented the Men’s Water Polo Team for GB in 2012 before embarking on a career in recruitment with former employer, Morgan Hunt. He progressed quickly; working up to management level in just three years within the sector.
Robert Parker, new head of property and FM recruitment, IEG, explains:
“Having worked as a professional athlete for seven years I wasn’t sure which direction I would take next. I attended an event run by Dame Kelly Holmes and was drawn to recruitment. It has been a fast paced three years but I have really enjoyed it. I felt it was time to move on and am delighted to be working with IEG at such an exciting time for the company in terms of growth and development. I was really drawn to the strong ethos and values of the company and feel I have a lot to bring to the table.”
Whilst Parker no longer has time to compete professionally at water polo, he continues his involvement in his spare time as a member of his local team.
Nick White, Director of FM Consulting added:
“We are really delighted to have Rob on board; he is a great fit for the team and brings along both an impressive track record in recruitment and strong values as a team player from his water polo days. As the company continues to grow we have focused on ensuring that we have the right people in place to support the values of the company. Rob encompasses all of this and we are pleased to have him on board.”
Insight Executive Group has experienced rapid growth in the last 18 months and has impressive expansion plans moving forward.
