A HEAD-HUNTING firm has been launched in the Hartlepool area to respond to to a worldwide shortage of talent.

Watson Lily, at Wynyard Park, is being run by Clare Fenwick from Hartlepool with support from her sister Toni Fenwick, who is also an experienced recruitment consultant.

The aim is quality not quantity for the firm which will be recruiting top-level staff for the international oil and gas, renewable energy and process sectors.

Clare said Watson Lily’s aim was to work in partnership with a small number of client organisations to provide a depth and breadth of service that guarantees success.

Clare worked as an international head-hunter for almost a decade before returning to the North East in 2007.

She added: “We don’t advertise roles or keep a database of candidates, but we are keen to build relationships with senior personnel within the oil and gas, renewable energy and process sectors. Building a relationship with an experienced, professional and knowledgeable head-hunter is essential to your long-term career success.”

Clare is a mum of six-year-old son Marley. She left Hartlepool at 18 to go to university. She graduated with a law degree and subsequently became a legal head-hunter.

She said: “As a firm committed to providing clients with a five-star quality service, we wanted to base ourselves at a five-star location and Wynyard Park is just that.

“It is an exceptional place to work and everyone who comes here is impressed by the surroundings.”

The company’s name comes from the names of Clare and Toni’s grandmother and an aunt of their late father, Peter, who worked offshore on oil rigs.

Wynyard Park facilities and estates manager Claire Tallon said Watson Lily was a great fit for Wynyard Park and they were a welcome addition to Wynyard.
