Meet the creator
Rob started his life in recruitment working for a large national healthcare organisation where he had the opportunity to work in a variety of roles. He then went on to lead the team at a well-known independent recruitment agency in Shrewsbury where he stayed for over 6 years helping it to achieve award-winning status as well as progressing the company to make it’s largest turnover in it’s 16 year history. Following the Covid-19 pandemic Rob created Blue Orchid Recruitment so he could continue to assist businesses and job seekers with their needs. Prior to working in recruitment Rob qualified as a Mortgage Advisor and worked for a blue-chip financial services company. Rob has vast experience in customer service, management and sales and prides himself on his proactive, personable and empathetic approach.
He is a REC qualified recruiter and a member of the TEAM. He also holds a Diploma in Management.
Outside of work Rob is married with two young daughters and resides in the beautiful Shropshire Hills. He enjoys playing the drums, country/hill walking and leisurely running (if there is such a thing!).
What Rob says: “I love how varied and challenging working in recruitment is. I love being able to assist local businesses whilst also being able to assist people into work, both of these elements of the job are very rewarding. Healthy recruitment is also a good indicator of a healthy economy so it’s great to be at the forefront of seeing businesses grow and develop.”
