Laura Gillespie

Our Founder & Managing Director

Laura Gillespie is our founder and managing director. She is a true “people person” who genuinely cares about delivering a service second to none and is confident that her hard work on your behalf will exceed your expectations.

With a career spanning 30+ years in recruitment, media sales, marketing, and fundraising, both locally and nationally, Laura has a wealth of knowledge and experience in matching the right people to the right roles. She delights in changing people’s lives.

As an experienced people manager, she is passionate about working with businesses to support their recruitment needs by supplying the best people to add value to their organisation.

When she’s not rallying the recruitment troops, you’ll find Laura most at peace in her garden or reading a good book.

Del Rowbotham

Operations Director

After spending 30 plus years in IT server and network support, Del has taken the role of Operations Director in his stride. He keeps the management up to date with his reports and figures ensuring the business is always looking forward.

His knowledge of various systems over the years has been extremely useful in the setting up of our CRM system helping us work smarter and better, keeping our processes running smoothly.

He sees himself as a musician in his down time, playing various instruments although his wife has thoughts about his skill level as do the local cats! When he is being quieter, he can craft a canny looking leather handbag and whittle the occasional spoon.

Recruitment Consultant

Paige has a background in business-to-business sales and the employability sector. She has a passion about finding people their perfect job opportunity – she loves it!

In her spare time, she spends it baking some beautiful creations and especially enjoys time with her 2 children and husband.

She is new to the full recruitment role but can’t wait to get stuck in and do what we do best here – change some lives!
