About Us

I am currently the Managing Director of Hive Projects, I have over 34 years’ experience in Recruitment, the last 32 of which have been in IT Recruitment. We are based in Manchester, and we are planning to grow into existing offices in Bristol and London. We specialise in the recruitment of IT professionals across the UK from Support through to “C” Level Appointments, on both a Permanent and Interim basis.

Over the last 32 years I have recruited in most technical arenas, a snapshot of which is listed below, however, I believe my greatest asset is my ability to use my experience in understanding a clients needs, read and understand a candidates cv and then translate that into a short list of applicants who are suitable for the role, saving time and money interviewing irrelevant candidates.
