I’m the Senior Consultant for Corecom’s Development Team, and It’s my job to build relationships with the best and brightest developers that Yorkshire has to offer. I help both clients and business solve problems through asking the right questions, gaining and understanding of what their needs are and using my knowledge and expertise to advise them on the best decisions they can make when it comes to hiring talent.

What does a normal day working for Corecom look like?
My day normally starts with my eyelids being pulled open and hearing the words “Daddy, get up!” from one of my twin girls. Once they’re dressed and fed I’ll drop them off at their Nursery. I’ll then make my way into work between drinking a strong coffee and listening to a Podcast (Diary of a CEO usually) or some upbeat Music depending on how I feel. Once I’ve had my morning meeting and catch up with the Corecom family and have my house in order, I’ll focus my morning on generating and covering Business Leads and talking to potential clients. After this I’ll check in with candidates who are interviewing with my current jobs, candidates who I know are looking and any new people who have reached out to me on LinkedIn. Not just content with dialing the phones, I try my best to spend some time each day looking into topics that I find interesting that can make a difference, like Diversity and Inclusion and Mental Health Improvement. Lunch time normally involves a quick trip to Tesco and a walk around the town centre to stretch my legs and people watch!
Typically, I will leave the office around 5:00 to pick my daughters back up from school. Our normal routine will then be a bit of play time (watching Mr. Tumble or Hey Duggee and playing with Toys), make them some dinner, bath bottle and bed. When I’ve then had a second to breathe, I’ll sit down and have some dinner, watch something on Netflix and get myself prepared for the next day (if I don’t get everything cleared away and ready for the next day I am hopeless the next morning ?)
What’s the best thing about working with the Corecom team?
I’m relatively new to Corecom, having only joined the business in October 2021. However, I’ve worked in Recruitment for nearly 10 years, and I’ve never once worked for a Business who says they care for employees wellbeing and backs it up the way that Corecom does. I’ve never had a business with so many people, from so many backgrounds challenge me to think differently and be better than the way they do here. There are areas in which we can improve, but I have never felt as privileged and as optimistic about my future as I have when working for Corecom Consulting.
How do you spend those well deserved days off?
I spend a lot of time looking after my twin girls, who ask me to dance, paint and watch Disney films with them (Moana and Cocoa are their favourites!)
When I do get some “me” time, I love to sing, go to the cinema, cook (Mexican and Sushi being my specialties) and having a drink or two with friends and family!
What job would you be terrible at?
Jockey – I’m 6 foot 5, about 17 stone and not entirely graceful or balanced
What’s a piece of advice that has stuck with you?
Don’t think too much. Life is as simple or as difficult, as happy or as sad, as you want it to be ?
What I wanted from this partnership was to be able to take a step back and free me up to focus on my other responsibilities in addition to recruitment. Working with Corecom alone made everything so straight forward. I wasn’t having to chase up several agencies and there was no duplication of candidates. Tunstall was their no1 focus and I trusted them to deliver, which they did. There was noticeable improvements in CV-to-interview and interview-to-placement ratios which was a real pain point before changing the model on how we worked together. Working on a retained basis gave me confidence that extra effort and resource would be put in to filling the roles.
