Our Team

Just like your business, the success of your recruitment strategy is fundamentally driven by the talent and expertise of the people behind it.

We have delivered successful recruitment solutions for more than three decades and are passionate about delivering outcomes that positively impact your business.

Our leadership team are waiting to share the benefit of our experience, knowledge and proven track record in talent acquisition and outsourced resourcing.

 

Leanne Chambers

Managing Director

Leanne is responsible for the strategic and operational direction of the business. With almost two decades of recruitment experience, Leanne is an expert in the design and delivery of RPO solutions.

Leanne is married with two children and a 2-year-old Cavapoochon called Buddy. Her weekends revolve around football – whether it’s her football-mad husband cheering on his team or being Soccer Mum with both children playing for local teams, she still finds time for Prosecco!

Louise Reed

Director of Client Solutions

Louise has 20+ years’ experience in the recruitment industry with particular expertise in RPO. She works with businesses to unpick their talent acquisition challenges and designs tailored solutions that deliver long term value.

Originally from Cumbria, Louise loves walking in the Lake District with her husband and Boo the yellow Labrador. When she’s not up a mountain you’ll find her down the Ouseburn watching a band and sampling the finest craft beer.

Kerri Rankin

Head of Flexible Workforce Management

Kerri has over 14 years’ recruitment account management experience specialising in the design, implementation & operational delivery of volume recruitment through flexible workforce management solutions.

Kerri is married with two adorable daughters who make regular guest appearances on Teams calls on the days she is working from home.

Julie Mordue

Head of Client Marketing

Julie is responsible for the creating and delivery of effective recruitment marketing campaigns on behalf of our clients. She also runs our business engagement activities such as Talking Talent and Contact Centre Careers.

Julie has recently become a Glam-ma and proud as punch! She’s even joined the gym to keep herself young and takes part in regular challenges for charity. Stories of her progress combined with her ‘lack of filter’ keep us highly amused.

Matt Lazenby

Senior Talent Acquisition Partner

Matt has over 10 years’ experience in Contact Centre recruitment and is responsible for connecting companies with the best Senior and Specialist talent across the UK.

Originally from the Ribble Valley, Matt met a Geordie lass and now lives in the North East with his wife and young daughter.

Matt is a Formula 1 fanatic and loves a vintage Rioja.

Georgia Scott

Solutions Delivery Manager

Georgia joined our graduate scheme in 2014 and has built a strong reputation in the contact centre sector for her ability to translate complex resourcing requirements into the implementation and delivery of successful volume permanent talent acquisition projects. She leads the team that delivers volume permanent recruitment contracts throughout the UK.

Georgia loves going out for dinner and is partial to a fine bottle of Malbec. At home she’s a cat Mum to ‘Olly Purrs’ who is often heard snoring on our video calls.

Stephen Gardner

Solutions Delivery Manager

Stephen has over 10 years’ recruitment experience and heads up our Engineering, Manufacturing & Technical (EMT) division with responsibility for key account management, recruitment supply chain management and contingent recruitment.

Stephen loves a bet on the horses so he’s good for a tip or two and guaranteed to be on annual leave during Cheltenham week! Stephen’s sweet tooth ends with three crazy spaniels called Honey, Treacle and Sugar – he’s more a red wine and cheese board kind of guy!

Alison Jobson

Solutions Delivery Manager

Alison has over 20 years’ recruitment experience with particular expertise in the recruitment and management of temporary workers. Alison leads the delivery on project-based and volume temporary contact centre recruitment.

Alison lives in rural Northumberland with her ‘better half’ and two beautiful girls. She has a passion for interior design and runs her own Instagram interiors page where we eagerly wait for her to upload pics of her latest furniture upcycling project.
