Hire Power: Use strategic resourcing to sharpen your competitive edge


John Wallace has worked in the recruitment business for over twenty years. He started his recruitment career with an independent consultancy in Scotland, and went on to work in resourcing leadership and senior HR roles with RBS, Tesco and Barclays. Since 2015 he has consulted with a variety of businesses providing diagnosis for problems and insight for solutions.

Over the years, John has been responsible for the recruitment of tens of thousands of people, developed innovative hiring processes, created award-winning campaigns, driven change and delivered recruitment that delivered results for businesses. His experience has been across the globe, and working through the arc of resourcing activity.

He has written Hire Power: Use strategic resourcing to sharpen your competitive edge which explores many of the most dangerous challenges to businesses of all sizes.

The (barely) fictional scenarios of Lothian Bank allow the reader to make connections between their own organisation’s challenges and threats and the strategic insight and methodology John proposes.

Strategic resourcing is not a quick-fix, quick-win technique. It is a comprehensive mind-set and methodology that brings stability to erratic elements of business. It also enables the broader growth agenda to be achieved through strong, systemic changes to the recruitment, training and retention functions.
