LinkedIn Profile

Originally from Newcastle Upon Tyne, I studied at Cambridge University, came back to Newcastle after I graduated in 2016, and have been in IT recruitment ever since.

Having been in recruitment now for nearly four years, I can say for certain that I have found my calling. I enjoy the people-facing aspect of the job and it is certainly rewarding to help people land their dream job.

At Orbis I recruit in the Cloud space - particularly in Microsoft Azure in the UK and wider Cloud across Europe.

Outside of work, I follow my beloved Newcastle United (hopefully better times to come with new ownership), play snooker when I get the chance, hit the gym, drink a few beers... and down a few shots!

Fun Fact: I am a fully qualified FA Referee

Please get in touch if you would like to learn more about what I do at Orbis or if you just want to have a general chat.

  • Richard has been an outstanding recruiter. 13 years of experience in the UK and 70+ recruiters that I had to deal with qualify me to judge this accurately.  A person that knows the client, the recruitment processes and has an open mind and a very professional and creative approach when it comes to problem solving. Needless to say, recruitment processes can change suddenly and without notice and having someone that can quickly adapt and adopt a pro-active approach rather than reactive is indeed more than welcome. The client had a unique hiring method and I was glad I was working with Richard on my application as he talked me through each part from the CCAT all the way through to the face-to-face interview. He was mostly accurate about every step of the process and knew it by heart. I do appreciate that Richard conducts his research on the interview and the clients overall accurately and with great detail. You will never feel like improvising when working with Richard. I would be happy to recommend Richard down the line to any of my 700+ connections as I believe he is one of the top recruiters in the industry. He takes absolute care of the candidates - progress, status, happiness levels, concerns - and checks on them very often. Without knowing the accurate figure, I am willing to bet that Richard's success percentage is indeed very high. Only time and effort will give you that and Richard definitely puts the time to make the most of it.
