Meet the team
Richard founded the business with one goal. To give customers the service’s that they wanted, not what he decided would be good for them. And from the very beginning he has ensured that this has been at the heart of what we do and why we exist as a business.
He works across all areas of the business and is the driving force for solving our clients’ problems, never resting and making sure that we deliver great results every day. Some people say he’s a robot but we know he isn’t.
If you’re interested in seeing how he can help you attract and manage new talent to your business then get in touch with him:
In July 2014 Karen joined the team as Head of Client Services and immediately took on the responsibility of “hugging” our customers. Her account management skills and knowledge of the recruitment industry were utilised from day one and she shares this expertise with clients and the team continually. In January 2015 she took on the additional responsibility of managing the service delivery team and ensuring that we continually focus on achieving high response rates with excellent customer service.
In her spare time Karen loves to shop, walk her dog, Ruby, and has now acquired a new interest in visiting the cities around Europe
Karen loves all things communications-related which makes her a perfect fit as our Head of Communications. Prior to joining the Shorebird team in September 2016, she worked in a range of communication-related roles in sectors as diverse as construction, professional services and outsourcing, as well as in health for the public sector. She’s been doing it a long time and she’s very good at what she does!
With a passion for engaging people and a flair for making words on a page flow beautifully, Karen is focused on not just promoting Shorebird but also using her expertise to bring our services to life for our clients.
If you’re interested in seeing how she can put her talents to use with your employer brand and engagement strategies then why not get in touch with her:
Martin joined the business in 2010, when the applicant tracking system was created. Over the years he has hand crafted the system, developing and engineering it to its current form, and he has thrived on the challenges and changes required to keep it ahead of the game along the way. It’s one of the reasons he has no hair.
In Martin's spare time he enjoys throwing himself out of aeroplanes with a parachute, he is our very own Jason Bond. (that's a mix of Jason Bourne & James Bond)
