Stanley Porthouse

Production & Design Consultant

Every person in our Games team loves their video games. They’d be in the wrong job if they didn’t! But Stan is our shining star. At one stage he had a FIFA world ranking of 254 so its no surprise that on our bimonthly gaming nights, everyone fights to have him on their team! But he’s more than just games - Stan is a great listener and has a real love of dogs which, as we all know, only says good things about his character.

Mark Lloyd

Senior Oracle Consultant

Our Oracle expert, Mark, has dedicated nearly a decade to growing our Oracle practice here at Skillsearch. He is a keen cricketer who bats a bit, bowls a bit less and is amazing at standing in the field. A Manchester United fan and a proud Father, Mark holds the record for having more things from Amazon delivered to the office than everyone else combined. He also has an infectious laugh so try and get him going when you speak to him.

Giles Fenwick

Games and Interactive manager

Giles runs our Gaming & Interactive division and specialises in forming tight knit teams, whether that’s for a studio or in our office. He represented his county at rugby for every age group from 12 onwards which no doubt helped him to cultivate his excellent understanding of team dynamics. Giles is known for his warmth and willingness to take time to work through any issues that may arise, although make sure you don’t try and share his food as then you won’t be getting a warm welcome – Giles doesn’t share food!

Sanson Wray

VFX & Animation Consultant

Sanson works with Joe to find the absolute best Animators and VFX Artists although their talents don't stop there! This team are our shining stars when it comes to getting to know a company inside and out and being able to complete a whole team. So if you're looking to hear about the company of your dream - get in touch with Sanson!

Richard Fisher

Managing Director

Our MD fitness fanatic and father of 3 Richard will be found running or in the gym every lunch as he says that’s the only place he ever gets any peace and quiet. Voted 9 out of 10 as a geek by the team Richards top 3 loves are Star Wars, Tottenham Hotspur and his family – although we aren’t sure in which order. Richard is the office oracle and says what he doesn’t know about recruitment isn’t worth knowing – we haven’t managed to prove him wrong yet!

Stuart Gillespie

CEO

Our CEO Stuart is a highly successful and entrepreneurial business owner with over 25 years’ commercial experience. Over those years he’s managed to cultivate not one but two incredibly successful recruitment businesses as well as a marvellous beard. Stuart has created many employment opportunities on the way and despite being slightly terrifying in interview Stuart shows his warm, fluffy side and love of paisley shirts when you’re working for him.

Harry Kwok

Art Consultant

Working alongside Alex, Harry is dedicated to speaking to brilliant Games Artists across the globe. A County level Squash champion Harry also likes a sedate life and is more likely to be found at the weekend with a fishing rod in hand rather than a racquet.

Andy Milford

Blockchain/BI Consultant

Our Blockchain and BI specialist Andy has been recruiting for over 15 years so knows his stuff. He’s an avid hoarder (you should see under his desk) and a keen rugby union fan supporting Ireland. He occasionally pretends to know what he’s talking about regarding football (he really doesn’t) but is more likely to be found reading a book than on the terraces.

Matt Giles

Development Consultant

Matt took his first family holiday to America when he was 7 and while he may have moved onto other things for a while, it seems America is where his heart lies! At Skillsearch he focuses solely on people and companies in the US so has all the knowledge you need if you’re there already or looking to make the move! Matt will bend over backwards for everyone he’s working with to help them find what they’re looking for. Just don’t ask him to do that physically though – his limbo skills are abysmal!

Tom Matthews

Ruby on Rails and Blockchain Consultant

Tom works with Ruby and Blockchain and is committed to introducing the best developers in the market to the best opportunities. Tom found his way to Brighton via Tunbridge Wells, London and New Zealand. He is a massive football fan supporting Fulham and has some odd quirks such as he can only listen to music if the volume is set on an even number.

Ben Sardari

Interactive Consultant

Ben works with everything to do with AR/VR/XR. Being an only child is what Ben attributes to giving him his love of immersive worlds and he says that he was born to work in Augmented Reality in particular as ‘AR’ turns up twice in his surname.

Joe Forsyth

Development Consultant

Looking to your next passion project? Joe works with developers of all kinds and will only settle for the best. With his own passions he’s reached incredible heights, being grade 8 in drums and fluent in Russian so he understands how to help you excel and get to the top of your game. Only one Achilles heel though – he can’t eat cheese! How does he cope?!

Alice Zahra

Marketing Manager

Alice is the brain behind the beautiful content you see coming from Skillsearch! She’s a pro at taking all of our haphazard ideas and turning them into the interesting and eye catching posts that you know and love. This is a real skill of hers in all parts of life as she’s known for making some pretty interesting recipes using whatever she can find in the kitchen. We do have to agree that the best thing she’s made so far though are her two beautiful sons (although her work here comes a close second!).

Jack Reid

Senior Production & Design Consultant

Jack looks after three areas, Games Design, Games Production and Game Analytics yet with the help of his near photographic memory he will always remember you and everything you’ve ever discussed. He’s no stranger to production himself, spending a few years producing incredible tapas as Head Chef of a Spanish Tapas restaurant. Jack also owns a pug called Pumba who was the ring bearer at his wedding and even got his own custom suit to match the groomsmen.

Freddie Anderson

Workday, HCM and Fintech Consultant

Freddie works in the Workday/HSM/Fintech industries - give him a call if you're looking for your next job!

Katie Jones

Development Consultant

Katie is our candidate queen and spends her time listening to people paint pictures of their dream job ready for whenever that job pops up. Katie’s claim to fame is meeting the Queen which in turn led to movie stardom (sort of)- ask her about it!

Catrin Jones

Operations Manager

Our Operations Manager Catrin is here for all our Consultants, Contractors and Clients for everything they need help with throughout the recruitment process. A priceless point of contacts for a number of client and candidate enquiries, she is an important part of the strong relationships we build and maintain as a business. Despite her talent in a vast number of activities however, Catrin’s main regret is her inability to whistle, although we have to admit it is quite amusing to watch her try.

Adam Leaver

Workday, HRIS and Finance Systems Specialist

Specialising in Workday, HRIS and Finance tech Adam is always the first in the office and often the last one to leave. We asked Adam to tell us a bit about his personal life but he assured us that he was too focused on work to have one. Despite this he does enjoy the occasional trip to Craven Cottage to watch Fulham although we are not sure that qualifies as stress relief.

I have worked with Skillsearch for the duration of my project on a number of recruitment opportunities. Skillsearch offer a professional and collaborative service providing a quick turn around with quality resource. When defining a resource requirement, Skillsearch worked with me to ensure they understood the full requirements and thus eliminated the submission of inappropriate type candidates. I would gladly use Skillsearch for future resource requirements, knowing that their professional, collaborative and honest approach ensures that a good working relationship is created.

Stuart Entwistle, Global Payroll Project Manager

Giles and the Sillsearch team exceptional recruiters, on multiple occasions he has delivered more potential hires (high quality relevant candidates) to interview than any other tech agency I have worked with. I especially appreciate his capacity to understand our need, and adjust as the process moves forward, with minimal need for how intervention.

Gil Teixeira, Head of Production | Arkavis Siam Co. | Bangkok, Thailand

When we need extra resources, Skillsearch is always one of our first ports of call – Giles has a very good understanding of our industry and can always find the perfect candidate for our needs.

Marina Burton, Plug-In Media

Through my work at Unity Technologies, and as organiser of the London Unity Usergroup, I have a very close connection with Unity developers throughout the UK. A common theme amongst Unity developers is a call for Unity jobs. On the flip side to this, I visit many studios that are looking for Unity developers to fill vital positions for the development of exciting new projects. It was clear that communication between individual developers and studios needed improving. It's great that Skillsearch have taken the initiative and are focussing on improving the communication between Unity developers and studios.

Russ Morris, Product Evangelist | Unity Technologies

The Skillsearch team did a fantastic job and were a real pleasure to work with. Their in-depth knowledge of the employers they work with, their recruiting processes and key staff was a real boon in both finding the right position and the subsequent application. Having worked with Skillsearch both as an employer and as a candidate I would thoroughly recommend them as being among the best in the industry.

Dan Borthwick, Mobile Technical lead | King

Skillsearch helped me find my first contracting role in BI. They were very polite, helpful and enthusiastic. They found a very good position for someone with my skills and I was placed immediately. A wholly enjoyable job finding experience and I would definitely recommend Skillsearch to any skilled data analyst.

Data Analyst Candidate

I met Giles and Guy at Develop and in the months since the event, Skillsearch has visited the campus on two occasions and worked with our students collectively and individually on improving their CVs and what goes into making a good portfolio. Our students respond well to their positive energy and encouragement, and their passion for games development. Giles and Guy are mad for Unity and because of them, I have encouraged all our games students to become proficient on the engine, and pushed the business case for the university purchasing 20UnityPro licenses. And, best of all, Giles and Guy do what it says on the tin – find our students jobs in games.

Hope Caton, Lecturer, Games Technology Leader | inKUbator

Giles and the Skillsearch team are unbelievably helpful and accommodating, even in the face of last minute requests and difficult-to-fill roles. Highly recommended.

Tom Page, Studio Director | PLA Studios

I think it's not an understatement to say, I would still be looking for new opportunities without Skillsearch’s help and determination. Their relentless pursuit of my interests with employers never kept me far from their attentions. This led to the lining up of several interviews within days of making contact with Skillsearch. Not only were they quick in finding interviews, but the suitability was spot on. They matched both mine and my employers requirements so well that after my first interview I landed a role. I'd barely made it to the train station on my way home as I was receiving an excited call giving me the good news. The friendliness and the genuine care they had for my success was unmatched from other recruiters I had tried. I can't recommend Skillsearch enough!

Adrian Walton, Senior Game Designer | DR Studios

Katie is a great recruiter to work with. She is very efficient at replying and dealing to any form of communication I sent and the wider Skillsearch team are also always very supportive. I look forward to working with you again.

Luke Zammit, Unity Developer | Future Games of London
