The Connected Leadership Team
David has more than 20 years experience in the technology recruitment sector. Co-Founder of Connected, he remains a Lead Recruiter and is responsible for business development, sales and account management.
I have known David for over 10 years. I have always found him to be both client and candidate focused, with a great network of contacts that allow Connected Consulting to deliver on their brand promise. I always know when I pick up the phone that he’ll be able to swiftly help me find great people.
David created the perfect match of employer and right candidate, with a professional touch, technical knowledge and a high level of integrity. In the very crowded area of head hunters, David – and Connected Consulting – are clearly outstanding.
I have worked with David for more than 10 years and he has consistently been able to source strong candidates to help fill some of our technically challenging roles. He has a well established network of contacts from both the UK and abroad which has resulted in the recruitment of some great new talent over the years.
Martin’s has 15 years’ experience in the technology recruitment sector. A Co-Founder of Connected Consulting, he remains a Lead Recruiter, with additional responsibilities for account management and business development.
Martin stands out from the crowd. His knowledge of the industry as well as his thorough approach to ensuring that potential candidates and positions are right for each other is refreshing. His open and good-humoured communication style make working with him a pleasure.
Martin is a very professional and reliable recruiter. He takes time to understand roles and requirements and has an excellent knowledge of the telecoms market. I would strongly recommend him.
I’m always confident that Martin will find candidates appropriate in all respects: skills, knowledge, aptitude, personality. He takes the time to get under the skin of the role to be filled; to get to know the environment in which the individual will be placed; and to have a regular dialogue with the recruiting manager on progress. I wouldn’t hesitate to work with Martin in the future.

Phil is one of the best recruitment consultants I have ever had the opportunity to work with. His knowledge of the sector and constant professional advice has been invaluable. I can highly recommend Phil for any recruitment-related services.
Phil has an easy approach and a high level of integrity, which results in strong working relationships with candidates and clients alike. He also has a high level of emotional intelligence, which enables him to match candidates to clients perfectly.
Phil is, without doubt, one of the best recruitment consultants I have dealt with in my 22-year career.
