Ex-Kellan Group directors launch Hesketh James

Two former directors of multi-discipline recruiter Kellan Group have joined forces to launch a new hospitality recruitment agency.

Hesketh James, founded by Toby Holt, previously operations director at Kellan Group recruiter Berkeley Scott, and Amanda Hesketh, a former head of HR and recruitment at Kellan, has set up office in Manchester.

The firm plans to grow quickly before moving into other sectors but will initially focus on permanent, temporary and consultancy assignments within hospitality – first in Manchester, but also focusing on other geographies, such as the South-West.
