Principal Consultant

Hi, What is your role at Concept?

I specialise in the business intelligence, analytics and statistics field within our Technology team. I focus on placing contractors into short to long term placements at some of the UK’s leading public sector organisations.

Tell us about your journey at Concept so far.

I started in August 2014 as a Candidate Manager and within my first year I was promoted to associate consultant within our Technology team delivering into the public sector. I worked alongside senior members of the team building up our delivery to our public sector clients and have since had further promotions up to principal consultant. Over the last 2 years I’ve  focused my niche into delivering to business intelligence, analytics and statistics requirements and have built long lasting relationships with clients in the sector.

Why do you love recruitment?

I love that recruitment grants opportunities to progress based on personal performance rather than longevity in a role. It’s been great to work in the graduate market of late and present opportunities to aspiring candidates within the data field, introducing new talent into the market.

Why Concept?

The opportunity to join a fast growing, independent agency in Concept, was a decision I am very happy with! The people make Concept a fantastic place to work. They offer a flexible, modern company culture and the organisation continually rewards hard work and success. 

What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?

I am a keen golfer much like many of my colleagues here, we often spend spare time at the driving range and I am hoping to reclaim the Concept invitational in 2021.

Finally, if you were a film character who would you be?

Not quite a film - but I'd be a combination of Chandler Bing / Ross Geller.
