Hi, I’m Mark

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 am leading a team I am immensely proud to call my colleagues and share my 20+ years' experience with. 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 that covers Permanent, Contract & Leadership hiring with a real passion for getting the recruitment experience right. I genuinely love to help businesses 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

My Background

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 exacting standards, ethics, partnership with candidates and clients alike and a genuine desire to do an excellent 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?

Continuously endeavour to be better than the day before 

Outside of work

Busy family life, travel and normally attending sporting events at weekends.

Likes

Watching my daughters grow up, skiing, long dog walks and all year-round BBQ’s.

Dislikes

The year 2020, people that do not take pride in their work and the lack of snow and mountains in the UK.
