Christopher Woodward

After my Bachelor’s degree in engineering at Coventry University and Konstanz University of Applied Science (FHS), I travelled and taught English to business managers.

My first position upon returning to London was at an engineering recruitment company before moving to Germany for seven years and building up a large IT contracting company.

In 2001, I moved to Zurich and again helped build up an IT contracting company, becoming the managing director for the last six years before it was sold.

At Hays, I am responsible for IT Contracting for the sectors Banking, IT Enterprise and Manufacturing.

I spent several years working in sales and therefore have experience in the areas of IT hardware and IT services. In November 2015, I joined Hays as a Key Account Manager in the IT Contracting area, where I supported our banking and insurance customers.

After working as a Senior Key Account Manager for a few years, I became a team leader in April 2019. Together with my team, I am in charge of the expansion of our temporary employment business in order to promote this field of activity.

After having completed my studies in economics at the University of Zurich, I started my career as a consultant for a small recruitment company for experts and executive managers specialising in IT, finance and banking in the Zug area in 2007.

In June 2007, I moved back to my home town Zurich where I expanded the business division of Hays that specialises in permanent employment in the IT area. In the following years, I was responsible for further employees specialising in IT infrastructure and operations as well as in interface positions between IT and business activities. Since summer 2019, I have also been in charge of our financial services unit for German-speaking Switzerland.
