Jonathan Sanderson to Chair APSCo Yorkshire Business Forum
Jonathan Sanderson, Managing Director at Corecom Consulting, has been selected to Chair the Association of Professional Staffing Companies’ (APSCo), Yorkshire Business Forum from 27 June 2019.
APSCo, the distinctive voice of the professional recruitment sector and trusted badge of quality, provides expert support for recruitment companies committed to excellence. The Yorkshire Business Forum, one of the trade body’s professional networking events, provides an opportunity for its members to network with their peers, discussing prominent topics affecting the recruitment and employment sector on a regional, national and international basis. APSCo has selected leading recruitment experts to chair each Forum.
Nick Bowles, Chair Liaison at APSCo said:
“APSCo hosts hundreds of specialist events every year and our sector meetings and forums are at the very heart of this. The Chair of each group is essential to our success. They must be engaged and passionate about APSCo and the sector and respected by their peers.
“Jonathan is the embodiment of this and when I spoke to a number of members in the Yorkshire region, Jonathan’s name was in all of the conversations. Corecom is an excellent business and truly reflects APSCo’s values. We look working with Jonathan and making this Forum a major success.”
Jonathan Sanderson’s background is in IT recruitment. He began his career working in a graduate role for SThree thirteen years ago. In 2008, he founded IT recruitment company, Corecom Consulting. The company, now an award-winning Goldman Sachs recognised growth business, has been shortlisted for 16 awards over the last 12 months.
Jonathan is ‘Business Advisor and patriot’ to the Moonlight Trust; a charity that provides food, shelter and more to refugees across the globe. He was recently presented with the ‘Excellence in Business Award’ by MPs as recognition of his work for the charity. He has been named ‘Recruitment Boss of the Year’ finalist at the Marketing and Digital Recruitment Awards (MARA) for four years running, described by the Master of Ceremonies at the awards evening as: “not just a boss, but a mentor too, exerting sheer passion for his team, his role within his business, the industry and for employability” when he won the award in 2017.
Jonathan Sanderson said:
“Corecom Consulting has been an APSCo member for seven years now, benefiting from the professional training, expert advice, guides, toolkits and resources that the trade body provides.
“It is a real honour to be selected as the new Chair of the Yorkshire Business Forum. I’ve got some big shoes to fill, taking the reins from Howard Greenwood at Larson Group, who is very well known and respected in the industry.
“I am committed to growing the relatively new Forum, attracting new members and discussing some prominent and current industry topics in order to provide maximum business value to fellow recruitment companies.”
