IAG Cargo has appointed Caroline Andrews as chief people officer to develop the division’s “talent strategy”.

Andrews joined the business at the start of May from DHL Express where she was vice president of HR, UK and Ireland. Previously she also served as group head of HR at Carphone Warehouse.

Andrews will focus on developing IAG Cargo’s talent strategy globally, overseeing employee experience for a growing global workforce across 2,250 colleagues.

The appointment comes as IAG Cargo recently kicked off its largest ever recruitment drive, “looking to hire 500 new employees across the business as part of growth plans”.

“Caroline’s role and experience are more crucial than ever as the business drives forward its ambition to become an employer of choice,” the business said.

Andrews said: “It’s an exciting time of transformation for the business, and I am looking forward to working with the senior leadership to put in place long-term strategies that unlock the potential of our growing workforce across the globe and drives a culture that make IAG Cargo an employer of choice.”
