Dean Bruce has been appointed managing director of Business Daily Group’s railbusinessdaily.com.
RBD Stride enjoys an exclusive and unique partnership with recruitment company Stride Resourcing. The combined contacts and data of RBD Stride and Stride Resourcing include more than 300,000 potential candidates which, linked to Stride Resourcing’s experience and expertise in searching and selecting candidates, and BDG’s railbusinessdaily.com profiling capability, makes RBD Stride the ideal recruitment partner. railbusinessdaily.com enjoys four million visitors each year (updated to 6 million in February 2021) while 50,000 rail professionals read its daily newsletter.
The RBD Stride team also includes internal talent acquisition, engineering programme, professional services, and procurement and supply chain specialists. This team is supported by BDG’s significant strength in communications, media and marketing. The team has already established a very strong track record when it comes to recruiting industry leaders, specialists, managers and operatives.
David McLoughlin, Chief Executive Officer of Business Daily Group, welcomed the launch of RBD Stride and believes that it signals a transformation in the way that industry considers recruitment.
He said: “RBD Stride is a significant and important development for Business Daily Group and for those who will benefit from the recruitment services offered.
“To put it simply, railbusinessdaily.com is the most powerful recruitment partnership for the industry in the UK, is the industry’s leading media and profile raising service, and is the biggest online rail community in the UK. The addition of RBD Stride allows us to provide a recruitment service that works for business. This is the way forward for recruitment.”
