My background in recruitment

I have now worked in Recruitment for over 10 years and have specialised in Engineering / Technical Recruitment since 2011. I have worked with a vast cross section of the UK Manufacturing Industry helping both SME’s and Blue-Chip organisations achieve their recruitment goals.

My role has evolved over the years and I now focus on leading our sales team in the winning and development of new and existing clients, I also play a key part in the creation and execution on the company’s sales strategy.

My team specialise in recruiting for Engineering / Technical Contractors, and within the business we can support you with any Engineering / Technical needs you have on a Permanent, Contract or Temp to Perm basis both regionally and nationally.

We try and be a one stop shop for our clients, helping them fill roles at all levels in their Engineering, Projects, Maintenance, Manufacturing & Production teams. This is done across a range of sectors including Automation, Robotics, FMCG, Logistics, SPM, Process, Automotive and Aerospace.

The best part of my job

I’m a people person and love the day to day interactions with my colleagues and clients. I enjoy building and growing long lasting business relationships with my clients and I get a huge amount of satisfaction from developing and helping my colleagues improve through training and coaching.

What I do when I'm not in the office

I am a coach at the local Grassroots Football Club where my son plays, I am a keen golfer who likes to get out on the course whenever possible, and lastly, I play the Drums in a band.


“Thank you for supporting Fedex in sourcing a contractor for our daily maintenance shift.  The use of your new ATA Connect system to allow for initial vetting of candidates saved all parties a great deal of time in the hiring process.  This is a very useful tool to support the CV that is traditionally supplied for candidates and allows your clients to directly witness the initial screening interview held with the agency rather than relying on a verbal account afterwards.  This virtual interview also solidly supports Fedex in meeting our safety requirements for reducing face to face contact during the current covid-19 crisis.  I look forward to making further use of the system for future recruitment needs.”

Their staff ensure that the recruitment process runs smoothly and efficiently from start to finish, meeting our recruitment needs for shop floor positions. We look forward to continuing our business partnership in the future”
