After growing up and graduating in Manchester, I decided to pursue the bright lights of London. After a three-year stint in the world of accountancy, I fell into financial recruitment, and then chose to move back to my hometown.

I have always enjoyed trying new restaurants and hotels and when the opportunity presented itself to combine both my professional and personal interests, I leapt at the chance and stepped into the management role of a hospitality recruitment team for the North West. I then recruited Adam and Amy and went on to build an extremely successful team.

Outside of work I enjoy watching Formula 1, football and spending time with friends and family with Amy.

I look after permanent recruitment at Hive with a focus on Senior Appointments.

Anyone who has worked within hospitality knows that it takes a certain type of person to not only get through each service intact but to get a total buzz from each and every day. At nineteen, I realised that I was that type of person and started my career as a Commis Chef in a Cheshire Gastropub. Over my seven years in the kitchen, I worked in a select few restaurants and gastropubs and loved my journey up to Sous Chef.

I then decided to look for a way in which I could use my knowledge and experience to take a different angle on the hospitality industry and soon found recruitment to be the perfect way to do this and stay connected with the industry. My career move also led me to meet Saj who has since become my partner.

Adam, Saj and I all share the same passion for what we do in this ever-growing industry and aim to create a business which reflects that.

I manage the temporary recruitment at Hive.

Originally from Northern Ireland, I became involved in hospitality at a young age, taking on a kitchen porter role in my local pub at the age of fifteen. Since then I have worked in more restaurants, hotels and gastro pubs than I can remember up to the level of Head Chef – I am happily married to Sarah have two fantastic kids – Flynn and Caleb and we live in south Manchester.

When I’m not buried under a mountain of CV’s or enjoying time with my family, you’ll find me enjoying pretty much any sport I get the chance to watch. Or listening to what can only be described as a very eclectic taste in music (much to Sarah’s dismay)!

Recruitment for me is a marriage of two things I have a passion for – the hospitality industry and the people who work in it!

I look after permanent recruitment at Hive with particular focus on chef roles.
