CATHCART Associates has announced three senior promotions as the business continues to see rapid expansion in the tech and energy recruitment industries across the globe.

Rhona Kennedy has been promoted from Senior Recruitment Consultant to Principal Consultant. She specialises in sourcing software developers to support Scotland’s thriving tech sector, and will be responsible for leading the Scottish division of the specialist IT recruitment firm’s operations to help address Scotland’s tech sector skills shortage.

In her new role as Principal Consultant and Lead for Germany, Austria & Switzerland (DACH) with the organisation’s renewable energy division, Cathcart Energy, Sabrina Hickl drives recruitment for C-Level positions in this sector. Having already seen great success as the first European consultant within the company’s energy division, Sabrina will continue to grow her existing team to extend Cathcart’s reach in the lucrative German, Austrian and Swiss renewable energy markets.

Sigrid Carstairs has also been appointed as Senior Recruitment Consultant for Scandinavia with Cathcart Energy. Integral in the early development of the company’s presence in Northern Europe, Sigrid will further the Scandinavian expansion of Cathcart’s renewable energy business, offering a full contract and permanent recruitment service across the region.

Sam Wason co-founder and Joint Managing Director at Cathcart Group, said: “It’s fantastic to see both our IT and renewable energy divisions thriving, and 2020 is shaping up to be very exciting for us as we continue meet growing demand for our bespoke recruitment services.

“We are very proud of the team that we have built since we launched the company a decade ago. We are delighted to announce the promotions of these three key members of staff, all of whom have delivered exceptional results for our clients and helped to drive our expansion.

Sam Wason continued: “Both the tech and renewable energy sectors are flourishing, and demand for our specialist services as high-calibre recruiters in both industries is growing fast. These promotions will help us support our expanding client base, helping even more organisations find the best people for the job.”
