In addition to being Managing Director of Allen Associates in Oxford, I maintain an active operational role within the business and recently spent two years in London launching our new Office in Chiswick Business Park.

I started in recruitment in the early 1980’s. When I founded Allen Associates in 1998, my experience convinced me that an emphasis on delivering a great service as opposed to a great sales technique would be both satisfying and successful. It works and continues to work!

My business ethos is not complicated. I strive to understand the needs of clients and candidates; think about fit not fee and select and train great staff. All the managers here lead by example and we never become complacent or compromise our high service standards.
