I am an IT Account Manager/Recruitment Consultant covering all levels of roles for contract, permanent and temporary hiring requirements. I focus predominately within the Midlands but do occasinally work within other areas of the UK. 

I have been within IT recruitment for over 25 years and still enjoy the fact it is constantly evolving and new skills and trends are always emerging.  I have really enjoyed building personal relationships throughout the years with both candidates and clients as I appreciate just how important this is to be successful. 

It's been great working at ASC as we have some fantastic clients that I am able to provide a very personable service to. I'm proud to be part of a company that provides an excellent all round recruitment service to both clients and candidates.  We have a very solid team that have worked together for many years and we have a huge amount of respect for each other.
