Like most people I fell into the world of recruitment. I grew up in Buckinghamshire, with a few years living in Jamaica, before heading up to Yorkshire for University and eventually settling down in Ilkley.
My career began with a start-up internet firm during the end of the .com boom, before finding myself being drawn to the world of IT recruitment early in 2001. After spending a number of years moving between IT recruitment and Executive Search I entered the world of Talent Research, a rapidly evolving market being driven by the growth of strategic in-house talent acquisition functions.
In January 2018 I founded my own firm, focussed on delivering high value talent sourcing solutions to support in-house recruitment teams with their senior and niche hiring. Since then, we have built partnerships with some of the largest brands in the world as well as a number of high-growth PE back firms. While the organisation has expanded and evolved over the years our values have remained un-changed and reflect how we work as a business, but also how we act as individuals. It is what I am most proud of and is why we have an amazing client retention rate.
Outside of work I am heavily involved in local grassroots sport, coaching my son’s rugby and daughter’s football teams. I also enjoy exploring the amazing countryside of Yorkshire with my family and Buddy – our dog and also the Head of Office Entertainment!
