BarrettClark Executive Search is pleased to announce that Amanda Bell has joined the Morleys Stores Group as their new Buying Director, Home. Amanda joins after a very successful career spanning 14 years with the Fenwick Group.

David Hordle, Managing Director for Morleys said, “We instructed Matt Drewell and Dewi Jones at BarrettClark Executive Search on a new Buying Director role for the Morleys Stores Group. We were very impressed with the level of understanding about the role and what we needed, but also the level of research, detail and communication during the process. With regular weekly update calls we were always aware of what stage of the process we were at and how the timescales were tracking. We interviewed a very impressive shortlist and appointed a great candidate into the role. I would highly recommend Matt, Dewi and the team at BarrettClark and will be using them again”


Amanda Bell said, “From the first point of contact about the role, right through to offer and contract management Matt was nothing but professional, friendly and supportive.  Above all, his communication at all stages of the process was consistent and prompt – which I felt made the whole process easier. I have had experience with a number of recruiters over the last four and half months but found Matt to be so much more focused on ensuring the fit was right for both the client and myself.  I felt he had got a really good understanding of the role, why it has come about and what the client was looking for.  I got useful feedback and advice throughout the process and given detail as to what expect at each stage so I could go in fully prepared. I always felt that Matt was at the end of the phone if I had a question or he would touch base even if there was not much to update on.  I would certainly work with Matt again, either when I am in the market for a new role or if I am in a position that I need to recruit myself”.

Partner Matt Drewell led the search for the Buying Director for Morleys.
