High Growth Recruiter La Fosse names Andy Meikle as Non Executive Director

21/03/2019 By James Parker
La Fosse was founded on the premise that treating people well isn't just the right thing to do, it's the best way to grow a great business. Their impressive growth over the past 18 months has demonstrated that this practice drives results, allowing the business to scale sustainably, and at pace. The appointment of Andy Meikle as Non-Executive Director, represents a further investment in La Fosse's core mission: to prove that care is an accelerant to growth.
 
This starts with care for the La Fosse team, so a substantial investment in the HR and L&D function is central to the firm's approach. Their L&D team has been recognised as the best in the industry (2018). Meikle will primarily be helping La Fosse to maintain this, along with a tight focus on culture, as they scale.  
 
More specifically, he will be helping develop a world-class offering in talent acquisition, learning, management and leadership development, employee engagement and HR. 
 
La Fosse leadership and management team will have the opportunity to learn from Meikle's extensive track record in driving people strategy in high-growth tech businesses. As the former Chief People Officer of JustGiving and UniDays, he is currently the COO at HelloSelf, as well as holding advisory and investment positions at several tech scale-ups. 
 
La Fosse CEO James Parker says:
 
"Our mission is to drive a step change in the levels of candidate care in our industry by leading by example when it comes to treating people well. And we can't ask our team to treat people well with any integrity if we don't treat them well in the first place. Bringing in expertise at this level is the next step towards making this mission a reality: Andy combines a grounding in our sector with current best practice from tech scale-ups when it comes to accelerating careers, coaching managers, and recruiting the best people. While he brings both experience and expertise, the critical thing to us is that he also shares our values, and I can't wait to see how our team and strategy will benefit from his guidance."
 
“I’m excited by La Fosse,” said Meikle. “They are committed to building a world-class, values-led business with people at its heart, and are disrupting a people-led industry with a genuinely people-centric business model. I’m looking forward to helping the team retain their unique culture while continuing to grow."
 
Founded in 2007, La Fosse Associates has since grown rapidly, increasing year-on-year turnover on average by 40%. The business expanded its headcount from 150 to nearly 200 over the course of 2018, with revenues exceeding £100 million. They are also one of only three companies in the UK to come in the top 40 of the ‘Best Companies to Work For’ the last seven years in a row.
