Hi, what is your role at Concept?
I am the director of the IT contract business across the public sector and the private sector. I have over the years assisted in some of the governments largest and most complicated transformation programmes and delivered strategic outcomes into these workstreams to help delivery. I understand technology and how it all fits together having spent some of my career working for a Microsoft partner.
Tell us about your journey at Concept so far.
I am early into my journey at Concept but it is under difficult conditions such as Covid-19. I am working to galvanise the team and work with our public sector customers guiding them through this difficult time.
Why do you love recruitment?
I love the buzz of making a difference to a government initiative and seeing real impactful change due to the work we have done. I enjoy the team spirit and helping develop and mentor my staff. I've been recruiting for 17 years and originally started as a resourcer in 2004 working my way up to Director after a raft of promotions. I have managed multi million pound businesses and managed multiple P&Ls with large and expansive teams.
Concept were always a business I was aware of due to their footprint in the market. They are a mature and professional organisation who offer a unique approach to helping candidates and clients in their recruitment needs.
What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?
I am an avid boxing fan and having competed myself I still like to attend grassroots events right the way through to world champion boxing. I also love spending time with my family and friends.
Finally, if you were a film character who would you be?
Terminator, he, like me, just gets things done.
Martin is a great professional to work with; we have worked together where he has helped me to get roles and also helped me when I needed to recruit true specialist knowledge and expertise. He always makes it easy to work together and goes out of his way when you ask for some help and guidance. Martin certainly knows his way around people, and is good with clients and does whatever it takes to help you and gets things done. He is always quick to respond, available when needed and does not hesitate to share his market knowledge. I definitely recommend Martin to anyone in a hiring capacity or to anyone hunting for their next role
