Robin Brian MIRP | Director

Robin first started in recruitment in 2002 servicing the hospitality industry sector. This was a baptism of fire and started his love and passion of the recruitment industry. Robin soon moved on to recruiting in the professional services sectors and in 2006 became an established HR recruiter. Robin is now highly regarded as one of the South’s leading specialist recruiters and prides himself on a client base ranging from small independent companies to international blue chip organisations.

When finding time away from the office Robin can be found enjoying time with his wife Natalie, son Henry and daughter Bethany. He is also an ageing and somewhat unfit footballer who still thinks there is time for a playing comeback for his beloved AFC Bournemouth!
