Ian was a recruitment pioneer of the late 90’s when a Rolodex and a fax machine were the tools of the trade. Having masterminded growth at various recruitment companies since, Ian aims to put people at the centre of everything we do. Should any spare time magically appear, Ian fills it with 2 young kids, motorbikes and shooting with his trusty Browning rifle.
Delivery Consultant Lead
Rosaria’s career with Affinity started when she called up the office and said: “I want to work in recruitment, I live around the corner and I can be available for interview today”. Fast forward four years, four promotions and a client base that includes some of the best known software and technology companies in the world, Rosaria leads the Software Account Management team at Affinity. Outside of the office Rosaria partakes in travel, fine food & wine and her dog Hugo.
Business Development Lead
Rob moved into recruitment when his ‘pro’ tennis career didn’t take off as planned! Although less of a force on the court these days, Rob leads Business Development for the Cloud and DevOps teams and excels in anything to do with OpenStack, AWS or Azure. With clients right across Europe, Rob runs a truly international desk. Beyond the Cloud Rob is likely to be jetting off somewhere warm, as long as there is table tennis!
Resource and Talent Acquisition Lead
Having cut his recruitment teeth in the networking team, Steven is currently the internal Talent Acquisition and Training Lead. His role encompasses hiring the next generation of talent and insuring that the team is armed with the latest tools and techniques to attract and engage with talent. The in-house PowerPoint whizz can often be found putting finishing touches to his latest pressie, or more often than not organising the next social event. Life away from PowerPoint boils down to music, football, drinks and repeat.
