I’ve worked in recruitment since 1999, initially starting as a trainee consultant in education and then gradually working my way up, taking on my first Directorship in 2011.
I’ve been involved in several businesses where we have achieved some pretty special things in a short space of time, but to me my biggest achievement is looking around the sector and seeing quite a few Managers and fellow Directors who started out with me as raw trainees in the beginning. It’s nice to know you’ve been a positive influence on others. I still keep in contact with most.
Why RT Group:
I ran my own Education recruitment business for almost 4 years and I’d reached a point where I just wasn’t enjoying it anymore. It wasn’t doing badly but I wanted to “come back into the fold” with a larger company. I’d missed the team spirit you can generate in a big team. Luckily Sarah and I crossed paths in January 2019 and I was won over by her enthusiasm and positive vision for the future. The rest as they say is history and it was definitely the right decision.
I am a qualified Swimming Teacher but have never taught a single minute.
You in three words:
Determined. Calm. Fair. (These have changed a lot since becoming a father!)
