Russell started his Recruitment career as a teenager in 1998 working as a Resourcer for one of London’s leading IT Recruitment Agencies. Here he honed his skills in consultative telesales, job-selling and pro-actively resourcing candidates with rare and emerging skill-sets, mastering the art of online boolean searching. Russell successfully delivered hundreds of ideal candidates into job roles for a dynamic team of Consultants before becoming a fully-fledged IT Recruitment Consultant at the age of 21. This early candidate resourcing background gave Russell the platform for a long and successful career as a 360 Recruiter and he has enjoyed immense success in a career spanning 22 years. Russell has been running his own niche recruitment and search companies since 2004 and remains a Hands-on Lead Recruiter and Director working on behalf of AV companies, SaaS vendors and Tech Start-ups across the EMEA, USA and APAC regions. Outside of work Russell enjoys spending time with his Wife and Children, the occasional game of golf, and supporting Crystal Palace F.C in their yearly efforts to remain in the Premier League!
