I have known Chris for over 4 years and have recruited for and partnered with him at various organisations / projects. He is a highly intelligent and motivated individual who builds an excellent relationship with his clients. He has a strong grasp of technologies and service lines. Along with all of that, he's a great guy to work with.

Chris is a conscientious professional who has proved himself to be passionate about providing the right people for the right situations who is very easy to do business with. He's an innovative and tenacious recruitment specialist and can be proud of his achievements, particularly in the recruitment of top class field sales personnel. I would unreservedly recommend him

Hilary Fitzsimons
Head of Sales and Services
South Division - EDF Energy

Hilary Fitzsimons

I worked with Chris for a couple of years within the Energy Field Services HR function. Chris had a successful career within EDF Energy in Resourcing, and took the opportunity through a restructure to branch into an HR generalist role. Chris picked up things exceedingly quickly and was able to support case meetings immediately with only very little support. He managed the closure of one of our functions the Metering Calibration Centre ensuring proper consultation and redeployment of all possible employees whilst liaising with senior management within the organisation to ensure agreement on salary protection etc with the senior Trade Union representative. I would highly recommend Chris for either a senior resourcing role, or to develop into an HRBP role - he learns quickly, communicates at all levels successfully and would be an asset to any team.
