About Steve:
I’ve always been a connector of people, personally and professionally, effectively joining up the dots and problem solving. This is why I feel I’ve found my vocation in recruitment, 17 years experience and counting….

I have gained a broad range experience through having worked for a global corporate (through transition from private to FTSE 250 listed), and then being integral to the growing of the Tourstan Group contributing to sales and operations (joining the founding partners as employee number three).

In growing a company, I appreciate the difficulties involved in; scaling a business, organisational design and development, technology planning, commerciality, and financial planning and control.

The irony of building a recruitment company, is the biggest challenge is identifying and securing your internal talent. Recruitment is an addition to anyone’s workload, as the day to day never stops to allow dedicated time to hire and identifying top talent in any industry is a full time job in itself.

My skill is not knowing everything (or pertaining too), but in being able to “ask the right questions”, “listen to candidates and clients needs” then being able to call upon the best people respectively to deliver.

I am more than a transactional order filler, always looking to consult and provide creative solutions. Utilising an ever expanding network of relationships, across an array of industries globally.

I am surrounded and supported by a diverse, ambitious, and talented team. This positions us well to deliver consistently to our customers needs.
