About Mark

Mark has over 20 years’ recruitment experience within the Professional Services market. He started his career in Edinburgh with a leading nationwide consultancy specialising in recruiting senior interims, before being approached by a new start-up looking to establish a national presence out of their Head Office in London. He took the plunge, moved to the capital and began to play a leading part in the company’s rapid growth and success.

On the back of this success, he was tasked with opening their Manchester office and establishing a regional presence within the North West. He was integral in developing multiple teams, including HR, Finance and Procurement, specifically within the public sector. With Mark’s leadership, he helped the business grow to become the company’s best performing office. Most recently Mark was appointed by a highly reputable North West based consultancy to help them set up and grow a brand new HR division, covering both the private and public sectors.
