Audeliss boosts team with the appointment of former CBI HR director Elaine Pearson as Delivery Consultant

Audeliss, the London based boutique executive search firm championing diversity in the workplace, has hired Elaine Pearson, former Director of HR at the Confederation of British Industry (CBI) and latterly of Corporate Research Forum.

Elaine will be joining the existing team of experienced Delivery Consultants, working towards partnering the highest quality executive candidates with firms looking to expand their executive teams.

Her appointment comes on the back of continued growth of the Audeliss team, which recently saw the company relocate to larger offices in the capital to accommodate its expanding team. Previously a Change Management Consultant and Director of HR for the Confederation of British Industry among other roles, Elaine will use her 20 years of experience to ensure that Audeliss continues to grow as an executive search firm whose mission is to champion the highest quality talent.

Jonathan Swain, Managing Director of Audeliss, says: “We are thrilled to be welcoming Elaine to our team. Her experience in change management, culture, HR and operational expertise will be invaluable to us, and will both complement and strengthen the team’s skills.

“At Audeliss we value people who are human, brilliant and loyal, and Elaine brings all of those qualities to the role. We’re really excited to see how she progresses in the role.”

Elaine adds: “This is a fantastic challenge for me and one I can’t wait to get started on. I have a huge amount of admiration and respect for the work the Audeliss team does, and I am proud to be joining a company with values that I hold dear.”

Audeliss was set up in 2011 by Suki Sandhu, who after working for a FTSE 250 recruitment company, decided that not enough was being done to care for candidates in the recruitment sector, or combat the lack of diversity and inclusion in the workplace.
