After completing her degree in Law, Noreen decided to focus her career within recruitment. She dedicated the first nine years in sourcing appropriate candidates for highly skilled IT roles across a wide range of sectors, building up fundamental search and selection skills working in both smaller start-up practices and well established firms.
Noreen subsequently identified that her specialism would be best put to use within HR recruitment, operating with a strong focus on consulting and building client relationships,
She spent the following 10 years honing her skills and successfully placing HR leaders in high-profile organisations in the North West and beyond, with industries ranging from manufacturing and consumer to travel and technology. Noreen has become a reliable partner to a number of highly successful enterprises; her candour, honesty and track record of delivery have solidified her reputation as a trusted advisor.
Noreen joined Howgate Sable in 2017 with the intention of working over multiple functional specialisms in support of our Consumer, Aviation and EMI Practice Areas.
Barry and Clare are a dream team on a mission. They are connected, personable and full of integrity. Barry has managed to fulfil roles that others have failed to recruit and with A-class candidates.
Throw a hard mandate at them and see them deliver.
” Mandy worked with me as a retained advisor on a board level assignment to recruit an HR Director and a Governance Director. I found the process deployed to be very efficient and Mandy demonstrated excellent knowledge of the sector and ultimately assisted me in securing talented appointments. Mandy’s approach is very thorough and professional, but importantly she also commits to making each element of the task run smoothly and supports the client at all times.”
The EMI Practice at Howgate Sable really took the time to understand our situation and find exceptional candidates who could fulfil challenging international leadership assignments for a truly global company with a history that spans well over 200 years.
It was a first class experience and positive outcome on many levels.
I have worked with the Howgate Sable team on several occasions whilst hiring mission-critical executives. Partnership is the byword for this organisation – they act as an extension of my team and work hard to support me not only in the technical solution, but in the sense of a deep understanding of my specific requirements. Delivery is the key measure of our talent partners and Howgate Sable have always achieved what was asked of them.
I was headhunted by Howgate Sable for the CEO appointment at Welspun UK (Christy) Limited, a new product sector for me and one I would not have naturally considered. It turned out to be the best career move I have ever made. Since taking the role I have worked closely with Barry and his team to build a high-performance team, and this has been achieved through his taking the time to understand our industry sector and our company culture intimately. I cannot recommend Howgate Sable highly enough for anyone wishing to make a career move or build a team.
Having worked with Howgate Sable as a client and as a candidate I can confidently say their ability to deliver on complex searches is second to none. They not only have a detailed knowledge of the marketplace but also understand the importance of cultural fit.
I was particularly impressed with Howgate Sable’s knowledge and network in the aviation sector, the quality of the candidates provided at shortlist and the availability of Nick and the team to provide us with advice and guidance on candidates when required. Nick was particularly effective in understanding our needs as a Company and being flexible in adapting requirements and plans.
I have recently worked with Nick from Howgate Sable to recruit a new Head of Aircraft Operations for Thomson Airways. I was particularly impressed by the wide-reaching search undertaken and the quality of the candidates put forward. The skills match to the brief was excellent and I am delighted with the individual we selected.
From their initial call to me the Aviation practice team at Howgate Sable demonstrated a significant difference. Straightforward and to the point, the extent of their network and deep insight into the industry was immediately evident. The added value I have received as a candidate is tangible. An almost instant rapport quickly developed into a focused business relationship which is open, honest, respectful and above all trustworthy.
