Tilney has hired Catherine Davies to the newly created role of head of talent.
The role is aimed to help the firm attract, assess, recruit, induct and develop current and future stuff.
Based in the company’s Mayfair office, Davies will report to Gaynor Gillespie, the group’s HR director.
Davies began her career as a branch manager for Abbey National prior to moving into media relations for the bank.
She subsequently took up a post in recruitment consultancy and then became the HR director of an SME.
‘Tilney has cemented itself as one of the leading wealth managers in the industry and is fully committed to investing in our employees,’ said Gillespie.
‘Their development, technical expertise and career progression are critical to our continued growth, so I am delighted to augment our HR team capability with Catherine’s experience specifically in the talent and resourcing areas.
'This will allow us to focus on making Tilney a great place to work for those employed by us now and those who we want to attract to join the business for the future.’
The appointment comes hot on the heels of the launch of Tilney's new office in Maidstone, which opened for business last week.
