LinkedIn Profile

From a small town in Essex, I went straight into a plumbing and electrical apprenticeship from school at 16. After 5 years of changing lightbulbs, I decided to pack it all in to travel around the world, which was amazingly fun!

On return to the sunny shores of Essex, I made the conscious decision to move into recruitment (fell into it, of course, nothing conscious about it…) and started working in the Digital and Front-End Tech space, when Orbis was just a toddler. 

I’ve now spent over 5 years at Orbis and watched the company grow and go from strength to strength, which has been awesome to be a part of.

I'm the host of Orbis Connect's Code & Create lunchtime workshops and webinars! Check out my featured section for previous episodes and get in touch if you want to be a guest. 

I work with Frontend Developers, UX/UI Designers and Project/Program Managers, working across Digital Technology in London & Europe, helping clients across FinTech, InsurTech, HealthTech & a few other SomethingTech's.

Love dogs, football, seeing new places and a good night out - usually involving beer/rum. I’m also the reigning Orbis Table Tennis Champion, since the tournament began and I'm still waiting for someone to come in and test me ;-)

The first box is for the title ('what they say'), the second box is for the testimonial. You need to select a full block of text as 'block quote' (the symbol with the quotes in the edit menu) to make it an independent testimonial. Bold text is used to write the name of the author of the quote.

Joe is an effective recruiter. He comes across as honest, grounded and gives you support throughout the entire recruitment process, so you're never left wondering. I wish more recruiters were like him!

    Senior Product Designer
  • Joe has to be the most attentive and respectful recruiter I have ever had the pleasure of working with. From beginning to end, he was constantly checking in with me whether to update me or for reassurance during the quiet times of the recruitment process then once I was in the new position to check in and see how the new role was going. Joe has stood out for me through his authentic attention, care and professionalism. He's great at what he does and it shows! It was a pleasure to have his in my corner as a recruiter and I hope to work with him again in the future
