Premier Farnell

Premier Farnell logoPremier Farnell plc is a leading, high service, multi-channel distribution group supporting millions of engineers and purchasing professionals globally through its Group companies. Their products range from electronic components to industrial products from over 3,500 leading suppliers.  Strategically they are targeting for 70% of their business to ultimately come from ecommerce channels.   In addition they are internationalising their model to take advantage of the long term potential in the growing emerging markets.

These strategic growth initiatives inevitably impact on people resourcing issues.  Premier Farnell turns to Wickland Westcott to provide global career transition support to their HR departments when restructuring results in redundancies.  We have been able to provide consistent support at all levels, and across all geographies, despite the differing requirements and expectations dictated by local custom and practice.  Individual programmes have covered the spectrum of re-employment options – a return to a career corporate role, a move into self employment, portfolio working including non executive roles, a complete career change and even decisions not to work in a salaried role again. Whatever the situation we provide tailored support to help people take the right next step in their careers.

"Wickland Westcott, as BPI group’s UK partner, is a highly professional, supportive and approachable organisation. They are always ready to go the extra mile to provide exceptional service that meets our sometimes very challenging needs".
