The global chemicals sector is facing ongoing challenges; increase cost of raw materials, value chains moving East and strong competition from both natural competitors and adjacent industries. As a consequence, identifying the right strategy in this new environment is top of every chemical business agenda. Given our international presence, market intelligence and track record in the industry, our Chemical Associates are well positioned to track, review and attract top talent, ensuring our clients bring in to the business, candidates capable of adding both strategic and financial value.

We have a dedicated team of specialist Associates that have expertise and experience in the varied chemical segments and carry out retained searches internationally. Our clients are able to utilise our unrivalled networks to attract talent that can add lasting value to their business and play an important part in the strategic and financial direction of their organisation.

The most sought after talent in this industry is not actively looking for new challenges. Using our 6 Stage Process and our Direct Search methodology, we confidentially promote the opportunity to and attract these valuable individuals. This identification, approach and assessment offers our clients the opportunity to select from a shortlist comprised of only top performers.

It has been a pleasure to partner with the team at Hamden for our Digital Inks hiring requirement.
