One of the North East’s oldest recruitment companies has announced a strategic appointment to the team.

Genesis Personnel, which operates from premises in Peterhead, Aberdeen and Dunblane, has appointed Leigh Reid to the new role of Marine & Offshore Manager.

The move will further underline the company’s position in these significant sectors and spearhead further diversification into new sectors and geographies, balanced with continued ongoing growth and sustainability in traditionally fruitful marketplaces.

Educated at Aberdeen College, Leigh brings to the job more than a decade of experience gained in a range of oil and marine industry roles, including logistics and personnel. Her broad experience in this specialised field, coupled with a sound understanding of overseas personnel requirements, are seen as being correctly in step with Genesis Personnel’s domestic and overseas growth ambitions.

Commenting on her new role Leigh said: “I am delighted to join Genesis Personnel and look forward to playing a part in the future of this very well-known and highly-regarded company.”

Welcoming Leigh to the team, Genesis Personnel Managing Director Wendy Marr added: “Leigh’s addition to our team demonstrates our confidence in the industry and she will be central to furthering our foothold in our chosen marketplaces by augmenting our presence in a number of fields including surveying and ROV personnel.”
