He joins from strategic outsourcing firm Mitie after almost 10 years of service, most recently as head of talent for its client services offering.

Commenting on the appointment, Friday's chief executive Alex Wright said: "Robinson has a strong track record in driving organisational learning and development and sustaining vibrant, high-performing culture.

“He demonstrates deep expertise, great ambition for the people of Friday and a touch of playful irreverence – a perfect fit for our leadership team."

Robinson asserted that he was looking forward to “diving into” his new role, to help attract and develop “world-class talent”.

Friday has recently bolstered its senior team, bringing in Huge’s managing director Alex Mecklenburg as client partner. The consultancy has also brought onboard Eldelman’s Liz Keller as head of strategy, whilst Mike Horwath has taken on the role of delivery director.
