Kelly Services, the leading workforce management company, has made two key appointments to the senior management team. Katie Ivie has been appointed HR Director and Nickie Battersby is returning to the company as Head of Kelly Educational Staffing (KES).
Katie joins the company with over 10 years HR experience and prior to joining Kelly Services was head of HR Integration at Adecco. She will be responsible for maintaining the culture of strong performance management as well as implementing a clear strategy to ensure that Kelly Services retains its talent and recruits the best people in the industry.
Nickie, who has previously worked for Kelly Services, joins with a wealth of experience in the education recruitment sector. Having spent the last three years at Capita Education Resourcing where she was responsible for managing five locations across the UK, Nickie is a strategic and important hire for Kelly Services. She will be focusing on building the Educational Staffing brand and expanding the division in the UK.
Andrew Cook, interim General Manager, Kelly Services for UK and Ireland commented: “We are delighted to welcome both Katie and Nickie to the senior team at Kelly Services. Consolidating and growing the KES brand is a priority for our business in the UK and Nickie is best placed to take on the challenge.”
