I’m an experienced recruiter; hiring for developers since 2005, I’ve viewed in excess of 20,000 CVs, had over 1,000 people out on interview and successfully filled 100’s of roles in banks, FinTechs, Software Houses, eCommerce, Retailers, Dating and more.
I host my own events, attend other events and generally network for developers to make sure that my clients get a superior service.  I also tell the truth; if your desired person doesn’t exist I won’t go off on a wild goose chase.
I blog.  Admittedly not as much as I should, but I write about the recruitment industry and how I see if from this side of the fence.  I’m a featured blogger on ‘The Undercover Recruiter’ and also blog on the ABrecruit website.


I work hard to source only the best developers in London (and the Home counties).  Using a combination of over 10 years’ experience and a great network I’m not just a ‘job board recruiter’ which is sadly all too usual.

As our events are for people who have migrated to the UK, I interact with people from different backgrounds, getting a rare chance to talk to them about the type of role that would get them excited. When I speak to a company looking for exactly that I get in touch!

RPO  (Recruitment Process Outsourcing) is my preferred method of work; I value time inside an organisation far higher than generating massive one off fees; I help companies to build teams I’m not just a ‘quick fix’.  I’m in it for the long run!

I do also source on contingency, but only if I have enough time and I’m not one of 30 agencies on a requirement.  If I get your commitment I’m happy and so will you be.  No commitment = massive fail in hiring top talent.


The IDinLondon events are my brainchild; we host developers from around the world who have moved to London.  They meet with likeminded people from home and converse on various IT related topics.

We are agnostic in terms of development skills, and have seen a broad range of technical skills from C# developers to Java developers, C++ Developers, Database Engineers, Mobile developers and so on.  As long as you are a development professional we are delighted to have you at our meetups!

It’s difficult enough settling into a new city, so finding someone who you can talk to about their experiences in relocating is beneficial. Whilst recruitment isn’t anywhere on the agenda, if needed we can help you to find a job here in London with your well-honed development skills.





Due to the success of the blogs mentioned above I get a lot of calls and emails about starting a recruitment business; if this is why you’re here then I’ve set up a infographic explaining the process.

It’s no walk in the park starting a recruitment agency; you’ll need plenty of experience, capital, a market understanding and most importantly a phone!

If you need anything I work on a consultancy basis helping aspiring entrepreneurs break down the barriers of employment and become your own boss.  Ethical recruitment taught by an ethical recruiter.
