Coming from the “third grooviest town in Europe”, Hebden Bridge, he studied English Literature and Drama at Royal Holloway, University of London, beginning his career as an Agent to the stars of stage and screen, before refining his ambitions to a more gratifying career in healthcare recruitment.

“I studied Hunter Healthcare from “over the fence” and was envious of their impressive market reputation and continued success in delivery. Having seen a number of my peers join the Hunter family, I was delighted to be offered the opportunity to join the business in 2020.


On joining Hunter Healthcare, I was immediately struck by the genuine drive and ethos to do best by our clients and candidates.


I am intrigued by the continued development of technology and the way it can facilitate a safer, more efficient and greater healthcare system to the UK, and also globally. This drives a positive and creative approach to supporting this continued development through the network I have developed and delivering the highest quality solutions to our clients.”
