Recruitment veteran Searle joins Hiring Hub

Peter Searle

Recruitment industry veteran Peter Searle (pictured) has been appointed chairman of Manchester-headquartered technology company Hiring Hub.

Led by founder and CEO Simon Swan, Hiring Hub’s recruitment agency marketplace connects employers to a network of vetted, independent, specialist recruitment agencies. Late last year, Hiring Hub raised a further round of investment from existing investors Maven Capital Partners, VentureFounders and Manchester Tech Trust Angels.

Searle was the CEO of Adecco UK & Ireland for more than 10 years and is the current executive chairman of energy recruitment firm Airswift. He also is a non-executive director of fellow Manchester-based recruitment tech company Broadstone. 

Searle joins former N Brown boss Angela Luger and Ian Brookes, ex-MD of IT recruiter Lorien, on Hiring Hub’s board. A company statement said the firm is looking to use the recruitment sector’s Covid-accelerated transition to cloud-based recruitment platforms to its advantage.
