The BRS Team
Our research teams come from a wide variety of industry backgrounds. All of our staff come from abroad or have travelled extensively. This multilingual and diverse team has the innate ability to relate with candidates from around the world. Individual research experience within the business varies from 2 to 12 years and assignments are handled across teams dependent on skill-sets and abilities required.
Having spent several years in recruitment and seeing the value passive candidates can bring to an assignment, I started BRS Global in 2000. At that time we were based in central London and our clients were almost exclusively executive search firms, which we provided support for senior recruitment projects they had won. By 2004, the internal recruitment market had developed significantly and since then we have been providing recruitment research and talent pipelining solutions to end hiring organisations. We relocated the business to Brighton in 2006, where I am supported by a loyal, trusted and close-knit team, most of whom I have now been working with for many years. Whilst the team do a sterling job of delivering the research, I spend my time with clients and focus on developing the business, however when we are particularly busy I do still like to keep my hand in and help deliver assignments!
Now firmly settled on the South Coast, I’m married and have a growing family. Outside of day to day work, I give my time as a trustee for a charity which works with women and children who are affected by substance misuse. Spare time is at a premium, however, not infrequently, I can be found sailing my scary catamaran off Brighton beach!
