SFHA Chairs’ Conference sponsor focus: Aspen People
Aspen People Ltd is a UK executive search firm that works in partnership with a broad range of private and public sector organisations to help them to attract the highest calibre individuals.
SFHA would like to thank Aspen People for sponsoring its Chairs’ Conference, which is taking place on Friday 31 January and Saturday 1 February.
Aspen’s task is to bring best practice to both its clients and candidates. This means moving its skills and advice beyond the ‘commodity-led’ recruitment agencies who will tell a client “this is how we do it”. It works in partnership with all key stakeholders in client organisations to ensure that it fully understands what outcomes are expected of everyone in the process; and it truly believes its bespoke solution to search is what sets it apart.
Aspen is proud to be regarded as the ‘go to’ executive search firm within social housing. This is a result of its sound industry knowledge and complete dedication to clients’ interests, delivering exactly what they need – high calibre candidates, totally in tune with clients’ aims and aspirations and capable of making a positive, lasting contribution to their organisation. Aspen is committed to building close, productive relationships with all its clients in order that they can benefit from its skilled professional team, specialist experience across a wide range of industry sectors, a wealth of connections, and a creative, flexible recruitment process. Championing this partnership ethos, enables it to gain genuine insight into their corporate culture and a true view of their needs.
Its strong reputation within the social housing sector highlights the unique service and high-quality Aspen delivers as a team. Its networks, grown through public, private and third sectors, place Aspen in a unique position where it is able to attract candidates from a number of different locations and sectors. Specifically, its housing clients have benefitted from the wide reach it has when it comes to finding the right person.
Nigel Fortnum, Director of Aspen People, said: “Aspen are delighted to be the main sponsor for this year’s SFHA Chairs’ Conference.
“We hope you enjoy conference. My team and I will be around for the duration and happy to have a chat with you around any thoughts you might have for your organisation and the future succession plan.”
Mr Fortnum will lead a session at the conference, on Friday 31 January, on succession planning. He will look at senior staff recruitment, in particular, and will present examples of approaches from within the sector.
