Two new senior appointments at Barker Ross


Eliot Davies, new Managing Director at Barker Ross Recruitment and Helen Clark joins as Operations Director for Barker Ross Health and Social Care

The Barker Ross Group has made two new senior appointments, with Eliot Davies becoming the new Managing Director at Barker Ross Recruitment and Helen Clark joining as Operations Director for Barker Ross Health and Social Care.

Eliot Davies has worked in construction, property and engineering recruitment for over 22 years for Hays plc, ending his career there as Senior Operations Director.

Davies says: “The construction sector is now booming again after 7 or 8 years of tough markets and there has never been a better time to be recruiting in this sector. My aim is to grow the business organically, investing in the existing locations.  In the longer term, I plan to look to expand our perm recruitment offering, open new locations and move into new sectors.”

Helen Clark has joined Barker Ross Health and Social Care as Operations Director.  Clark was with Reed Health and Care and in her previous role, managing nine branches.  In the immediate future, Barker Ross Health and Social Care will be focusing on expanding recruitment for qualified social workers.

Clark says: “I’m really excited about being part of taking the Barker Ross Health & Care business to the next level.   Health and social care is a very demanding area to recruit in as good candidates can pick and choose who they work for.  Compared to other companies in the sector, Barker Ross’s commitment to safeguarding, robust process and training impressed me; along with their commitment to giving candidates a good experience, I think it’s the recipe for success.”

Barker Ross Health & Social Care will be recruiting across the nursing, allied health, residential care and social work sectors. It will cover permanent, temporary and contract roles in both the public and private sector.

Paul Ross, founder and CEO of the Barker Ross Group said: “Recruitment is a people business and our success depends on being able to attract the best and the brightest. I’m really pleased to welcome Eliot and Helen to the business and think their track record demonstrates their experience and capability.”
