Alan Crockert has joined Scottish-based recruitment specialist, Two Rivers Recruitment, as a senior advisor to the board.

Eddie Finnigan, Two Rivers founder and managing director, said: “Alan is a man I have wanted to appoint to our advisory board for a number of years. He has extensive experience of overseeing successful decision-making in rapidly growing recruitment companies.

“Handling rapid growth is a quality business challenge to have to cope with, but it needs to be tempered by experience and wise counsel and with Alan’s insight and expertise I believe the business will benefit hugely.”

A well-known figure in the UK recruitment industry and a main board director over thirty years of a series of Scotland-based recruitment companies, all of which prospered under his guidance, Alan’s focus is in working with business owners who need additional, objective support in developing themselves and their organisations.

As an active mentor and advisor to business owners and boards across a range of sectors, he is now involved with Two Rivers at a crucial stage of its development where his role will be to provide strategic, operational and personal development support to the board and employees.

He said, ” Eddie’s background in HR brings a different perspective to the business, which includes an unwavering set of values, communicated clearly and maintained throughout the business, and I’m delighted to be on board at this exciting time of growth. The business is now positioned to attract new talent to satisfy its growth plans over the next 12 months.”

The company’s newest member brings valuable additional skills to the agency. The new appointment comes as the firm continues its expansion both at home and abroad and follows the recent appointment to the Two Rivers advisory board of career human resources executive Jim Drain as a non-executive director.

Set up at the start of 2018, Two Rivers provides both permanent and temporary staffing solutions across the engineering, aerospace and business support sectors.

A finalist in the “Best Newcomer” category of the s1jobs Recruitment Awards in 2019, its clients include leading organisations in the fields of civil engineering, aerospace, renewables, and business support services.
