“Having worked in the world of sales recruitment as a Business Development Manager/Key Account Manager for the last 14 years in both the technology and construction/technical markets, I am both delighted and above all excited by the prospect of joining four of my previous colleagues in helping to accelerate the growth and market penetration of TalentTech Recruitment in my role as an Executive Recruiter.
My strengths and skillset are very much based on winning and maintaining long-term relationships with clients, and this is where my focus will be within the team. Being asked to be a part of the future direction of the business was an opportunity I could not afford to turn down. I am looking forward to bringing on board new members to the team and helping them grow and develop as individuals as we expand the business.
The current team have done a great job in building a stable base and, in joining John and Nick, I believe I have the backing and support of two of the best recruiters I have ever worked with. John was responsible for recruiting me into my previous business so I am looking forward to continuing that relationship in the future and learning from Nick whose skills lie in managing large Key/National accounts.
The working environment is professional, friendly and relaxed yet we all possess a huge amount of drive and hunger to make this a success. I’m sure there will be challenges over the coming years but, with the backing of the team here, who compliment each other perfectly in terms of their attributes, I believe we will build on the success of the last two years.
I would like to thank both John and Nick for the opportunity to play such a pivotal role in the growth and direction of the business. I am positive that we can achieve great things as a team.”
