Senior finance recruitment firm Rutherford Cross, has welcomed two new members of staff to join its team in response to continued business growth.

Amy Borthwick will be managing recruitment across the Tax & Treasury market in Scotland, whilst Georgina Millyard joins to start a new vertical for Rutherford Cross in Internal Audit, Risk and Compliance.

Amy worked for a FTSE 250 listed recruiter for seven years, initially in Scotland, before travelling with the firm to Australia and Canada. Amy returned to Scotland 18 months ago and already has an enviable reputation in the Tax & Treasury space.  Georgina worked for the same FTSE 250 listed recruiter for three years prior to joining Rutherford Cross and comes with great experience and established reputation in this market.

In addition to welcoming Amy and Georgina to the business, a number of other significant changes have been made internally.

In Edinburgh, Stephanie Livingston has moved from the Glasgow office to manage the Industry and Public Sector offering in the East of Scotland, whilst Derek Lauder, who has been managing the Edinburgh office for the last 12 months, now moves into a new role as Head of Interim across Scotland.   Angela McCann has expanded her remit from purely Financial Services into the Industry & Commerce market in Edinburgh.

Rutherford Cross, a part of the Livingston James Group, has experienced steady growth since its inception in 2013, and recently opened an office in Manchester in addition to its Glasgow and Edinburgh offices.

Commenting on the changes, Mark Lewis, who leads the Rutherford Cross business said: “By bringing on Amy and Georgina and creating new roles for some of our senior team, we have significantly strengthened the Rutherford Cross team in Scotland, which will enable us to further expand our business both locally and nationally.”

Livingston James Group Co-Founder Jamie Livingston, commented: “These changes to the Rutherford Cross team come at an exciting time for our business.  Our success in the senior finance market is largely down to our excellent staff and their unrivalled knowledge of and networks within the Scottish finance marketplace.

“We look forward to building yet more successful relationships as we continue on a path of growth and expansion for the business.”
