Recruiter invests in L&D as growth continues

develop spurs growth with further expansion in learning and development.

Specialist software engineering recruitment agency develop is preparing for further global growth with the strategic appointment of Megan Cohen as Head of Learning and Development.

The hire comes as the company reported record revenues for 2021 with further growth expected over the course of the next 12 months. This is being driven by the significant expansion within the US tech sector, as well as continued progress in the UK and Germany.

Previously Head of Learning and Development at G2 Recruitment, Megan joins the London headquartered develop team with a decade of learning and development experience in hypergrowth businesses. Formerly working in agencies that have doubled in headcount or revenue, Megan’s experience, and expertise will be an invaluable asset to the develop team.

Past roles for Megan have involved implementing new training plans, taking ownership of the development of all consultants, and evaluating the impact; Megan will be setting the strategy for the learning and development of the sales teams imparting knowledge and experience to the team. With a proven record of reducing the time taken for junior consultants to successfully place candidates, develop can’t wait to see the influence she has on the team.

Speaking on the appointment of Megan Cohen, founder and CEO of develop, Kevin Hammond, said: “We are truly delighted to welcome Megan to the develop team as we continue our global growth plans.

“She joins us at an exciting time for the business and her extensive experience in developing teams will prove to be invaluable as develop seeks to build on its strength across our core areas of the UK, German, and American marketplace.”

Megan commented: “Joining the team is a great opportunity for me to continue my career with an organisation that has aggressive growth plans, a lot of genuine USP’s and a really strong commitment to supporting their Consultants. Ultimately it was a no brainer, and an easy decision.

“It’s fantastic to be working with professionals who are experts in their chosen market and don’t venture outside of that. I’m looking forward to building on the strong foundations that Joey and Kevin have set.”

Joey Tait, founder and managing director, at develop, adds: “We have ambitious plans for the next five years, and Megan joins develop at a key time for us a business. We want to ensure that our consultants are continuously learning and developing their skills to guarantee we’re providing the best service to our clients and candidates. Megan will help to future-proof our team and I’m excited to see the impact she makes at develop.”
