MM Search, Scotland’s fastest-growing Executive Search firm, places a Finance Director and HR Director, for Scottish Veteran’s charity Erskine.


Erskine, which provides support to Veterans and their spouses in Scotland, through care homes and a Veterans Village, appointed MM Search to seek two key senior positions to boost its executive team.


Following a targeted search, MM Search has placed Gregor McKellar in the new Strategic Finance and Business Planning Director role and Sarah Bickerstaff in the Human Resources and Organisational Development Director position.

We would have no hesitation in recommending MM Search’s services to any organisation in finding their recruitment needs moving forward.”
