T: +44 1225 430 007

From a day to day perspective I manage Frazer Jones in the South West and Midlands and am based out of Bristol. I work across all industry sectors and HR disciplines within the region. This includes working with clients to deliver executive search and retained assignments at Head and Director level as well as identifying talent at Business Partner and Manager levels. I was also responsible for setting up the Human Capital practice in London and I am still actively involved with clients and candidates across People & Change within client-facing management consultancy positions, typically at Manager to Director/Partner levels.

I have worked in recruitment for a number of years and specifically within HR since 2008/9. In that time I have partnered with a wide range of Global, EMEA, and UK businesses and appointed at Group HR Director and mid-management levels across HR generalist, learning, compensation, and benefits, resourcing and talent. 

I have significant experience in managing retained and search assignments with in-house HR and HC clients, particularly within financial and professional services, retail, FMCG, pharmaceutical, technology and manufacturing/engineering.

Part-time taxi driver to three children. Cricket is quite clearly the best sport in the world. Avid cyclist when I get time off from being a taxi driver.

Stephen took the time to really understand my skills, experience and understand what was important to me in my next role. He was proactive, responsive and was in regular communication. I really valued his candid and honest feedback. I have recommended him to others and would definitely work with him again.

HR Director

Stephen is a professional senior recruiter who placed me in my current role. From a candidate perspective, it was refreshing to work with a recruiter who is honest and follows through with their commitments. Stephen clearly takes pride in his work and aims to provide an excellent candidate experience. I would not hesitate to recommend Stephen.

Stephen is a superb resourcing expert. He has a thorough understanding of his client's needs and is incredibly thorough in his approach, supporting both candidates and employers. He is quick to spot potential in others and takes account of motivational needs and cultural fit, as well as broader experience and skills. On top of all this, he is highly personable and good fun to work with. I would have no hesitation in recommending Stephen.
