I work with Engineering and Manufacturing companies throughout Staffordshire, Shropshire and surrounding North Westerly regions. My main focus is to recruit for permanent/interim Quality, Applications and Process Engineering roles within an industrial and manufacturing background. 

I enjoy working within the engineering and manufacturing sector because of the scope of products produced that are used on a global scale. It's a fascinating process. I like that I can work with a wide variety of people from different disciplines. For me, getting candidate and client buy-in has always driven me forward to build lasting and mutually lucrative relationships.

The out of work me....

finds any excuse to get people down the pub. I also enjoy travelling and Prague has to be one of my favourite places to visit for its medieval feel and of course, the cheap beer! I am also prone to read the odd book but still believe that The Hobbit (which was the first book I ever read) to be one of the best. 

I couldn't live without....
