Hamish began in recruitment back in ‘99, when faxes were still a thing. Far from being close to retirement, but with enough grey hair to show he's lived, Hamish has (finally!) made the smart decision and joined the team at Consult! We’ve tried for years to get Hamish to join the Consult gang and are excited to see our persistence finally paid off!
His experience recruiting across many verticals over his recruitment lifetime including accounting & finance, business support, executive positions, and most recently financial services, provides a solid set of experiences and knowledge. While he's been managing and leading teams for some time, Hamish has also placed a range of senior level positions including Commercial Managers, CFOs, Chief Actuaries, Head of Operations, Head of Product and more. Recruitment is now less about job adverts and screening applications and more about the dark arts of customer engagement, a process Hamish knows well.
Leading our Specialist Recruitment team has him driving the continued growth and success of Consult across a number of specialist verticals - legal, executive, accounting firms and risk & compliance.
Outside work, you'll see him providing a reliable taxi service for his kids who are pretty keen and active sports fans. When Hamish has a moment to himself - he can be found speeding by on a mountain bike or landscaping (though he is a good starter but not so much finisher here!). Trying new craft beer is also a favourite pastime (in fact Hamish and Justin are thinking of starting a Consult Craft Beer Club (CCBC)).
