Gattaca Solutions Appoints New Head, Theresa Gear | Gattaca Solutions
Gattaca Solutions announced today the appointment of Theresa Gear (she/her) in the position of Head of Solutions Operations and Business Improvement.
Theresa comes to the role from an internal position at Gattaca Group as Head of Business Improvement and brings with her over 23 years of experience within global recruitment.
We caught up with Theresa to talk about the past year – and the past two decades – as well as what she’s excited for next:
Q: Hi Theresa, thanks for sitting down with us! Can you tell us a little bit a about your previous role here at Gattaca as Head of Business Improvement?
Theresa Gear (TG): My remit was to deliver a business improvement programme across Gattaca PLC supporting operational best practice, a culture of continuous improvement and learning in order to deliver overall strategic objectives. This programme involves working to support our clients, contractors & our people; taking ownership to process design, implement & execute as well as review processes & tools seeking continuous improvement. This to date has involved applying lean process techniques to improve efficiencies and quality to deliver best-in-class regulatory and operational processes.
Integral to my role is working across the group building good relationships with a diverse set of stakeholders across the Gattaca group of companies to support on local projects which will enable us to collectively be more successful.
Q: And you’re only an impressive 8 months in before being asked to step into the role of Head of Solutions Operations and Business Improvement - what did you do prior to your career at Gattaca?
TG: Prior to this I worked in recruitment for 23 years for a global based business & was lucky enough to work in a variety of roles. These included the creation & set up of their central delivery function supporting key clients & working as part of the strategic account’s function supporting MSP clients.
In the last few years, I was lucky enough to work on a number of strategic projects such as the creation & running of their Mid Office – a function dedicated to a right first-time approach as well as leading from the front in the growth of our Offshore teams through expanding our Mid Office in two locations in India. Other strategic initiatives included driving efficiencies through converting the business to online timesheets & supporting on the simplification of UK entities.
The variety in roles gave me great exposure to challenges facing a sales business and I love finding solutions or a streamlined way of working - that’s meant I have continued my journey down the path of continuous improvement…All the way to Gattaca Solutions!
Q: Can you tell us a bit about Gattaca Solutions and the work they’re doing?
TG: Gattaca Solutions was created from our wider group’s heritage within Engineering and Technology and in response to an increasing client need for workforce solutions.
We have evolved in the last 20+ years are now providing workforce solutions that engage effective programme management, whilst also delivering solutions that are driven by our group’s recruitment expertise in delivering high-quality STEM talent.
You couldn’t find a more qualified team of professionals; I’m delighted to say I’m joining a very strong team.
Q: That’s great to hear! So, what do you get up to when you’re not leading up incredible teams?
TG: I love people watching, holidays, weekends away with friends and too often a night out where I can be found dancing on the tables at 3am goading everyone into a singalong!
