Benjamin Kershaw - Group Managing Director

As Group Managing Director, I’ve never lost the love of working closely with both clients and candidates. I really thrive when helping clients find the best calibre of candidate for any given position. I also work to really understand what candidate’s want from their next role and take pride and pleasure in placing them in jobs in which they can thrive. Whilst I thoroughly enjoy my current role as Group MD, I have previously sourced for candidates of all levels within the FM industry, covering everything from engineers through to BDM’s. I have always enjoyed getting each individual into their dream role but my preference lies now with the placing skilled and experienced candidates into more senior, executive or leadership positions.
