  1. Tell us a little bit about yourself…

Before starting my career in Recruitment, I worked as a Building Services Engineer for five years and also attended Northumbria University on a part time basis. After completing my HND in 2010, I decided I was read for a career change and have been in Recruitment ever since.

Having had experience in an engineering and construction environment, I believe I have a better understanding of the industries I now recruit for.

Outside of work I have a wife and two kids and enjoy (sometimes) following Newcastle United.

  1. Which office do you work from?

Newcastle.

  1. What is your job title and do you focus on a specific sector(s)?

I am a Senior Recruitment Consultant and I focus on construction and engineering sectors.

  1. How long have you worked with Solutions Recruitment?

Just over four years now, since August 2013.

  1. What do you like most about working Solutions Recruitment and why?

I really enjoy the flexibility of my work as it allows me to have a good work-life balance.

  1. What’s the most challenging part of your role?

There are a number of challenging aspects, however I would say the main challenges are skills shortages in some of the trades and also geographical factors such as availability of staff in certain areas, as a lot of my work is spread around different parts of the UK.

  1. How does it feel to be recognised as Consultant of the Month?

It’s always nice to see your hard work is being recognised and rewarded, especially as a lot of my work is done outside of working hours.
