New Directions Holdings Ltd welcomes Sophie Cecil
New Directions Holdings Ltd is pleased to welcome Sophie Cecil as Group Human Resources Director. Sophie joins the team from the MITIE group of companies – a UK FTSE 250 business that has been running for over 23 years.
Sophie’s role within New Directions will involve reviewing and responding to current policies and procedures and employee engagement. Sophie comments “My mission is to ensure that the company is one that all employees want to work for. We believe in succession planning, and offering a comprehensive CPD programme to all of our staff. As the company grows from strength to strength we have to adapt and evolve to ensure our most important resource is equipped”.
New Directions Holdings Ltd has recently received accreditation for their management development programme through the Institute of Leadership and Management. Sophie and colleague Victoria Deane, Group Learning and Development Manager have mapped the programme with the University of Glamorgan.
It is anticipated that the programme will be offered to staff from April 2012.
