Hi, I am Chris and I am a Senior Recruitment Consultant for our Software Development Practice, which covers the UK, Europe, and the US.

I first got into recruitment 5 years ago after leaving full-time professional football. My first experience in recruitment was working in the construction sector – I knew instantly that recruitment was right for me! Fast-paced, working with people, and having the opportunity and fulfilment in finding somebody the perfect job are all reasons why I love what I do.

I am relatively new to IT as I started with Areti in September 2022, and it was an opportunity that I couldn’t turn down – to be able to work alongside such inspiring and market-leading individuals has enabled me to hit the ground running and the support and guidance has been remarkable. You find that skills are very transferable within recruitment and if you are competent in one sector you can replicate this in others – as long as you have the fundamentals right! I am looking to further my career within Areti and the Software Development Practice and am extremely excited for what the future holds for me, personally, and also the company as a whole.

When I am not working I enjoy watching or going Horse Racing – its my passion!! I am hoping to one day own a horse of my own. I also love spending time with my partner Laura and our daughter, Rosa!!
