Event Details


In the current employment climate, attracting the highest calibre candidates can be challenging at the best of times. Brand names are not enough anymore, the likes of Google and Ticketmaster setting up offices that look better than a playground to a child and benefits schemes becoming larger and larger, competing for a voice requires innovation, thought leadership and determination.

Our latest event will explore the best ways to attract talent with views from every angle of the hiring industry. Our panel is made up of recruitment industry leaders including; Andy Wire – Seneca Search, Cairene Gilbert - BNP Paribas, Mark Saunders – Owlstone & Undo and David Mills - Mills & Reeve aiming to provide insight on how to lead your organisation to victory.

Cairene Gilbert, Head of HR, BNP Paribas

Blending cultures and Recruitment Strategy

Cairene has over 10 years’ experience in Human Resources. Her current role as Head of HR provides her with the opportunity to influence and build relationships with Senior Executives in order to shape and prioritise the HR agenda at board level. Cairene truly believes that an organisation's best asset is its people and is most fulfilled when helping people to grow professionally.

Cairene believe it is important to keep learning professionally and personally and has recently started a qualification in Executive Coaching and Mentoring. When Cairene is not taking part in Les Mills classes at the gym, walking or trying new restaurants with her partner Jason she enjoys spending time with family and friends at home.

Mark Saunders, Independent Recruiter, Owlstone and Undo (Interim)

Recruitment Infrastructure

Mark has worked with recruitment for over 25 years and in this time has lead recruitment strategies within large SMEs to small start-up and tech businesses. Mark has great knowledge across the Cambridge tech and SME markets and works with various businesses at stakeholder and CEO level to come up with effective recruitment strategies that focuses on attracting and retaining the best talent. Mark has worked on global recruitment strategies, trained internal teams and delivered recruitment solutions whilst maintaining his vast network.

Above all Mark still loves the buzz of recruitment and attracting some of the most inspirational and highly regarded professionals into the organisations and the customers he is representing.

David Mills, Employment Lawyer, Mills & Reeve

Lawyer and Business Owner

David is the Head of Mills & Reeve’s national Employment practice, with overall responsibility for its Employment Law offering across their six offices. Based in Cambridge, David is one of only two employment lawyers in Rank 1 of Chambers (with “noted expertise in the technology and manufacturing sectors”) and was voted Best Client Partner 2014 in Legal Week’s UK annual client satisfaction survey.

As well as leading the development and significant growth and success of the firm’s employment group, David works with many of the region’s leading businesses on all manner of employment issues. David’s aim is to help organisations take steps to avoid disputes arising and to provide solutions to the spectrum of issues that arise whilst saving time and cost. As a business owner David is acutely aware of the challenges of recruitment and retention and can talk of his experience of Mills & Reeve being in the Sunday Times 100 Best Companies to Work For for the 15th year, a record for any law firm in the UK and one he and his colleagues are very proud of.
