Hammerson: retail & real estate, values & culture

Brightsparks & Hammerson

“Brightsparks has supported Hammerson since 2014, consulting on both permanent and contract positions where they have focussed predominantly on Graduate and Young Professional vacancies. They have dedicated time to exploring each new role with the respective hiring manger to establish strong relationships and ensure they fully understand the requirement and how best to approach it. The team at Brightsparks have worked hard to thoroughly understand our wider business needs and culture, which has been crucial to the success of our partnership to date.”

Leonie Rumble, HR Business Partner at Hammerson PLC.

The Need
Hammerson wanted to look outside of the traditional Real Estate talent pool to find people equally as suited to the Retail Industry as Property. Their culture and values are embedded within the business and finding people who embody these is central to delivering on their strategic objectives.

Brightsparks – Providing Property Graduate Jobs

The Solution
Brightsparks spent the time and effort to get under the skin of the Hammerson culture and values to truly understand the people who will best fit. It was important not only at the organisation level, but also within each individual team into which Brightsparks is engaged to find people. Armed with this, we are able to reach out to the wider Brightsparks network of graduates and emerging talent. We engage with and attract those best suited to the roles based on shared values and culture fit in addition to any required skills and experience, whether it be for permanent or contract positions.

The Outcome
Happy employees, happy employers and a partnership between Hammerson and Brightsparks that continues to flourish.
