About me

Jordan has been with Collingwood since 2019 and specialises in recruiting within Technology in UK, EMEA, Middle East and the USA


Following my degree in business management from Manchester University, I started my career in sales, working for the yellow pages (if you can keep a builder on the phone you can speak with anyone)! I had always loved sales but had a desire to try and help people too, so moved on to placing apprentices within businesses, one of which was a recruitment business. It seemed a natural progression from working with apprentices, and I loved recruitment instantly, progressing pretty fast.

I have been in recruitment now for over 5 years working on technical roles domestically to commercial leadership roles globally. Within Collingwood I work with global Technology organisations looking to transform their talent acquisition problems into opportunity, by partnering them on a journey that gives them access to the markets best talent, all of the time.

Outside of work

I live with my wife Rebecca, our dog Milo and our two cats Max and Mo. I enjoy travelling, my favourite places being Mallorca and Dubai and spend lots of time in North Wales with my family on short breaks, which I really enjoy. ūüėä My love for sport is huge, and I enjoy playing lots of tennis and golf and am a MASSIVE LFC fan!

What do you like most about your job?

The opportunity to really make a difference, whether that’s allowing clients to achieve their goals, or candidates the opportunity to progress their careers and enhance the life of them and their family.
