Executive Search Consultant, Industrial IT/OT and Cyber
David is one of Collingwood’s newest members joining as an Executive Search Consultant and leading recruitment within the Industrial IT/OT and Cyber Security market.
Having been sold the dream of a job in recruitment by a friend, I have enjoyed 12 years working in exec search / recruitment, just joining Collingwood amidst the pandemic. I hold a degree in English and Sociology and have previously worked for a few years in the Home Office.
Outside of work
I have a number of hobbies and interests. I love being outdoors, I live on a small holding with my partner Sophie where we are kept busy with all the various animals that we look after – pigs, sheep, goats, horses, cats, and dogs! I also like to keep fit – but I am not very disciplined at that… I am a big Liverpool FC supporter and I love to get out to gigs or festivals like Creamfields when I can.
Places I enjoy visiting, and regularly go to is North Wales, particularly around the Llyn Peninsula. I have also been to Ibiza a couple of times and hope to get back there again soon.
What do you like most about your job?
I really enjoy speaking with candidates and learning something different every time I do about the field in which they work in. I get to be educated every day speaking to people, and it’s always really satisfying when you speak with someone who loves what they do and speaks passionately about it. Being able work with people to help them make the next step in their career and being able to make a positive difference to both the clients and the candidates is what I like most.
