RECRUITMENT – HR – TRAINING
To JDM Talent
JDM Talent was founded to address the need for a more holistic approach
After several years leading in-house recruitment functions it became clear that attracting and hiring good people was just one piece of a larger puzzle. To hire good people you need to become good at attraction, selection, onboarding, retention and engagement otherwise you lose your talent somewhere along the way. Follow me on Linkedin.
JDM Talent addresses these needs by providing training to HR, Talent Acquisition, Recruitment Firms and Hiring Managers on attraction, selection, onboarding and retention. Within attraction there is a heavy emphasis on branding and EVP with specific training on helping organisations utilise LinkedIn to its maximum.
To complement the training, JDM Talent provides recruitment services for a variety of industries, sectors and levels of seniority. Clients include Private Equity, Medical Device, Pharmaceutical and Aerospace companies, recruiting positions across the globe with focus on the UK, US and Europe.
MY EXPERIENCE AND SKILLS
John David Morley is a seasoned recruitment expert having spent time in executive search and then in-house, leading Global Talent Acquisition teams.
John graduated in 2000 with a BSc Environmental Science degree and worked as an Analytical Chemist for the chemical company, Johnson Matthey. After completing their future leaders course John left the business to gain sales experience with a life science consumables business called Sarstedt. In 2005 he combined his science and sales experience and joined Remtec Search & Selection, a boutique headhunting firm for the medical device sector. After 6 years he was made a Director, concentrating on senior appointments for the MedTech sector across Europe. In 2012, ConvaTec, a major medical device company, appointed John as their first in-house recruiter and he went on to lead the Global Talent Acquisition function for 5 years. Following ConvaTec, John entered the pharmaceutical sector, again leading in-house recruitment teams for Vertex Pharmaceuticals and then Astra Zeneca. At the end of 2017, JDM Talent was born and continues to operate in the core life science sectors as well as diversifying into Aerospace & Defence, Private Equity and a host of other industries.
Always doing the right thing
Building strong & lasting relationships
An open and straight-forward approach
Results focussed over profits
John supported us at a pivotal moment in the development of the commercial capabilities of the MedTrade Products Ltd business; we tasked him with a series of very specialist searches for high calibre sales leaders, with some very specialist skills to supplement and take our commercial teams to a new level. During the process, John challenged the established requirements and helped us develop a much clearer view of exactly what type of individual would be successful for us. This was a very successful process and John is a pleasure to work with.
CEO MedTrade Products Ltd
John was my Head of Talent acquisition in my last company and is now an independent consultant. When we were faced with our own challenges, I put John on retainer with Excelitas. He was instrumental in ‘upskilling’ the HR Team as we went all in with Linkedin as well as handling multiple critical searches. He is super effective and a cost effective solution for short-medium term talent acquisition challenges. He comes with my highest recommendation.
EVP HR Excelitas
John approached me with the role I now occupy. He is professional, thorough and I have greatly enjoyed his thoughts and interactions in making sure I was both correct for the role and that the company ethos fitted my requirements too. He has continued to keep in touch to build our relationship and has taken an active interest in how the role has been progressing, an interest often forgotten about as soon as a recruiter has filled a place. I strongly recommend him both to companies looking for an expert recruiter and for those using his expertise to find that next step
