Heathrow Airport Holdings Ltd formerly BAA Limited, is the Spanish-owned operator of five British airports (including Heathrow Airport) and Naples Airport in Italy, making the company one of the largest transport companies in the world.
Harcourt Matthews were invited to support BAA during a specific recruitment drive and also in subsequent resourcing for talented candidates across 3 airports in the South East - Heathrow, Gatwick and Stansted.
During a period of business transformation, BAA required Harcourt Matthews to resource high-calibre individuals to take on commercially focused finance roles and work closely with the airport senior management team to support decision-making processes. BAA had historically used a Preferred Supplier List (PSL), which had proven unsuccessful in recruiting suitable individuals for their commercial finance jobs & vacancies.
