“The first time I reviewed Insight Executive Group, the company was new and still developing. By the second time we spoke, the organisation had grown massively. I couldn’t wait to get started.”
The growth of Insight Executive Group in the past few years has been truly remarkable, especially considering the challenging times faced globally. Experienced Recruitment Manager, Amir Islam has witnessed this growth from outside of the organisation, and now, we are delighted to announce, he has become part of the growth from the inside as he joins Andrew Pyman’s Procurement and Commercial team.
Amir brings with him seventeen years of recruitment experience, the majority of which is in the public sector with seven of those years specialising in the procurement market.
He first noticed IEG several years ago – several procurement candidates that he was in touch with spoke positively about working with Andrew Pyman’s team, so it was clear there was a lot of crossover in the work that he and I were doing.
Fast forward a few years and, by coincidence in the small world of recruitment, Amir was approached by Cheryl Wing, a rec2rec consultant that works closely with IEG, who suggested setting up an initial conversation with Andrew.
Amir and Andrew met for an informal chat and it became clear there was even more crossover within their networks than either had anticipated, with over a thousand shared connections on LinkedIn. Hearing about Insight Executive Group’s rapid growth over the years and future plans from Andrew was music to Amir’s ears, and he was keen to join the leading procurement team.
Amir joined IEG two months ago as Recruitment Manager, Procurement and Commercial team, and has felt welcomed by the friendly, supportive environment.
“What matters most is the flexibility to fit work around family commitments and the freedom and to steer my role in the way that suits me. Everyone here is very like-minded, regardless of age or background, which has made me feel very at home”
Having seen Insight’s continued growth, Amir wants to contribute with his own management style on the Procurement team – with a big aim for every consultant to become specialists in their chosen areas.
Building a team of specialists is key to growing a strong team, Amir is clear in his commitment to ensuring that everyone in his team understands the roles they are recruiting for inside out, which in turn, he validates, allows them to tailor the best possible range of services to our trusted network.
And what next? Amir has his sights set on further expansion, by growing his team and their knowledge to break into new markets… watch this space!
