Our product portfolio consists of both fibre cement and gypsum fibre building solutions, offered to the market under our James Hardie & Fermacell brands.

In 2012 Beaumont Wood was asked to recruit various specialist salespeople for Fermacell. This we did over a period of several years. Subsequently, Fermacell was purchased by James Hardie, and we were asked to recruit a new Managing Director for the UK. After an extensive search, the role was filled. Subsequent assignments have included more specialist salespeople – the latest in 2020 being a timber frame building expert based in Scotland.

The service offered ranges from vessel discharge to inland transportation via our in-house transport division.

Beaumont Wood recruited an Operations Director who then set about transforming the port with substantial investment. This is an example of a “start from scratch” recruitment assignment, as we had no knowledge of the pool of talent required, and thus conducted extensive research in order to successfully fill the vacancy.

Craig Frost, UK Sales Director said, “Jerry has successfully completed several recruitment assignments for me over the past 5 years. There is a reassuring human touch which he brings, alongside great preparation and attention to detail, which ensures the candidates he proposes are always on brief from both a skill set and cultural fit perspective. I would highly recommend him to anyone recruiting in the construction sectors.”
