Metals and Engineering
0845 862 1316

What is your background?

I began working in the steel industry in 2011, working for a market leader in Automotive Tube. I learnt my trade here and in that time I became a tubular expert.
After plying my trade for 4 years I moved on to work for one of the UK's largest multi metal stockholders, before becoming a national product manager.

I have experience selling tube, plate, sheet, road transport products, bars and extrusions in a variety of metal grades.

How can I help you?

Having worked in the industry for the last seven years, I have worked with hundreds of people in the metals sector from operations through to sales. I understand how this market works, and the people that you will need when recruiting for staff.

I understand in sales for instance, that there are many different types of skills or people that can fill these roles. Sometimes a business will want sales staff to hunt out new business, but other businesses want quality sales account managers, who look after an account so professionally, that a customer would never consider going to another supplier.

By knowing the industry I can find you the correct candidate for your business, and for candidates, I can match your particular skill set to companies where you will best fit in, rather than just place you wherever a job happens to be going.

Why are you working in recruitment?

In late 2018, I was talking to a friend of mine about how he was getting on applying for a new job within the metals industry.

He was frustrated, that he could not find a role that was right for him, and the only job that was of interest to him was not being offered with a suitable package.
He began talking about setting up his own recruitment agency, and how it would be best to have experienced people supplying staff into the metals and engineering sectors rather than just trained consultants.

A few weeks later, he asked if I wanted to be his business partner, and we set to work creating Comton Group.

What's interesting about you?

I have two incredible kids, and love to spend as much times as I can with them.

I am a passionate West Bromwich Albion supporter, although I really do wish I had had more common sense at an early age and chosen to support someone else
