I help clients find the key talent they need for their businesses or divisions to succeed. I do this quickly, discreetly and professionally.  

I have over 18 years experience recruiting core talent, having recruited roles from Finance Director in the Falklands, to Telecoms engineers in Central Europe, to a VP of sales and marketing for a property developer in Qatar. I have also recruited extensively throughout the UK.  

Between 2007 and 2013 I became an expert in renewable technology and sustainable business. Starting and growing a renewable energy installation business from scratch to £6.4m turnover, winning many awards along the way. I was also Vice-Chair of the Renewable Energy Association trade body (REA) and a member of PRASEG (Parliamentary Renewable And Sustainable Energy Group). I also sat on the Low Carbon Economy Board for the Liverpool City Region LEP, a post I still hold. 

 I have spoken about business and the economy on ITN News, BBC Radio 4 and BBC Radio 5 Live, and in the Financial Times.  

I have also spoken specifically about renewable energy on BBC Radio 4, BBC Radio Merseyside, BBC Radio Cumbria, City Talk radio, and had various articles, papers and opinion pieces published in places as diverse as, The Independent, Sunday Times, Mail on Sunday, Sunday Telegraph, The Guardian, FTadvisor, regional press and various national and international trade publications.
