SEND Consultant

About Chris

Chris is our SEND Consultant, predominantly working with special schools and provisions in Milton Keynes/Bucks, Northamptonshire, and Bedfordshire (as well as a few other schools which are just outside but we love too much to turn away).

Chris joined the team in 2021, having spent three years working in Executive search but is already a hugely important part of the team. Even in dress down, Chris is the sharpest dresser in the office and already a bit of a newbie is already stamping his authority when claiming that Tottenham is the best team in London.

In his own words......

What I love about recruitment is that I get satisfaction from helping others and building relationships. Just like a lot of people, outside of work I like to spend time with my friends and family and on occasions, I attend social events including Football and Boxing.

  • My favourite quote is “Keep your eyes on the prize!”

  • If I was to win the lottery tomorrow, I would set up a luxury cruise business and give the 1st 3000 people to sign up for a free cruise of the Mediterranean for 10 days!

  • If I were a superhero, my superpower would be Endurance, strength, and resilience.

  • The best advice someone has given me is “your heart is free, have the courage to follow it”.
