My background in recruitment

I am now in my 19th year at ATA having started as a trainee recruitment consultant in 2004.

I head up our permanent recruitment team in the North, focusing primarily on recruiting maintenance and field service engineers in the Yorkshire and the Northwest.

I can help you with

I am an experienced engineering recruiter of 19 and a bit years.

I have trained and developed a team of recruiters who specialise in the maintenance engineering sector in Yorkshire and the Northwest of England.

If you are a company in the North of England that is looking for an expert that understands every industry sector, and can credibly assess an engineer technically, and also understands their motivations and aspirations, then get in touch.

If you are a candidate looking for a new role and want to work with someone who can give you a real insight into what potential roles are out there, and someone who has access to a wide range of different companies then give me a call.

The best part of my job

I still enjoy being on the tools and speaking to candidates and clients, but my role has developed over the last few years into building and developing a team of recruiters and I have to admit I get real buzz from watching them improve every day.

What I do when I'm not in the office

I’m normally out with the family or walking our blue Staffie Gizmo.

 I have being doing CrossFit for the last 5 years so even though I’m going (gone) grey I’m still learning new skills and enjoying the competitive side of fitness.

"I have worked with Andy at ATA for a few years now. He has helped my career progress to new higher roles from engineering into management, he recently helped me find my first official maintenance supervisory level role whilst also helped me recruit a new engineer for my new team within a short turn around period. He understands what Is required from a company when searching out a new role and for a candidate. He is my first port of call for a recruiter."
