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.

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.
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 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.
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.
Freddie works in the Workday/HSM/Fintech industries - give him a call if you're looking for your next job!
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.
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!
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!
Stan is a Design and Production Consultant for the Games & Interactive Industries

Alex places Artists across the globe partially due to his willingness to respond to emails or calls at all hours. Alex himself has mad skills when putting pen to paper and creating a caricature – often of those of us in the office - and is our self-appointed social secretary, organising great nights of comedy, theatre and whatever Brighton has to offer that month!
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.
Joe is our Animation and VFX Consultant, his passion for the latter springing from being blown away by the effects in Star Wars at a young age. His love hasn’t wavered and Joe always seems to bring out a new Star Wars t shirt every dress down we have! We are lucky to have him considering that he once got stuck half way up a mountain in Borneo so now he goes for flatter holidays – most recently driving across America in a Mustang.
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.
Giles is the best recruiter I had the pleasure to work with. He is very talented and has all the good contacts, he also is unstoppable, once he finds out what you are looking for, he won't rest until he delivers. Thanks again for helping me finding my dream jobCaina Leao, Senior Flash Developer | Endemol UK Limited
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
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
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
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
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
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
We have worked with the Skillsearch team for almost three years now as our only recruitment supplier, and with great success supplying staff across all disciplines. They are the only agency that seem to truly understand the interactive space and have a genuinely broad network within it! It is also always a nice touch when we bump into the Skillsearch team sponsoring and attending various social events surrounding cutting edge technologies. Highly recommended!!Daniel Cheetham, Head of Interactive | Happy Finish
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
The folks at Skillsearch are all you could ask for in a recruitment agency: polite, enthusiastic and thorough. Working with Giles, Guy and Katie has been a real pleasure and I would definitely turn to Skillsearch to help me in the future, as either an employer or candidate. Thanks!Antony Woods, Software Development Engineer | Simworx
