Hi, I’m Mark
Frighteningly, I have been in Agency Recruitment for nearly 20 years with the past 15 years of that spent running two companies. Recruitment was a natural choice for me as I always knew I wanted to work with people, not always be locked to my desk and be able to achieve in an industry that has few limits. Wind the clock forward and I have been fortunate enough to work across the US, Europe, Middle East, Hong Kong and Singapore along with my primary focus in the UK.
I bring a breadth of knowledge to the table (likely virtual these days) that cover hiring across FTE, Contract & Exec Search with a real passion for getting the recruitment experience right. I genuinely love to help business build teams and make a defined contribution.
I am keen to connect with…
- CTO/CIO/Leadership Teams
- VC/PE Backed CEO / Start-ups that needs a recruitment partner
- GR/Recruitment partners looking to challenge their current suppliers
- Senior Entrepreneurial Recruiters that want to build a business and love recruitment
- Anyone that would like to pick my brains and see if I can help, in any way whatsoever
Much of my career has been spent in technology recruitment, building teams that supply contract and permanent talent to a broad range of industries and sectors. The team at Pioneer is built around high standards, ethics, partnership with candidates and clients alike and a genuine desire to do a great job.
Why I built Pioneer
It might sound cliché, but I genuinely like what I do. When I exited my last business and took a year off, I realised I wanted to build another business so why not build something that you love to do!
What does Pioneer mean to me?
Accountable, Transparent and Trusted
