I'm Mark and I'm the Commercial Director at Escape, I see myself as a solutions provider and here’s my story…
1970 Born (Generation X)
1992 Qualify as an Accountant with CIMA
1999 Register with Michael Page looking for Accountancy work
1999 They spot something, and I join them as a recruitment consultant – take a risk!
2000 Promoted to Regional Manager – the risk paid off!
2003 Join Hudson as Managing Consultant, similar job role, different company
2006 Accept the newly created role of Client Relationship Manager – another risk worth taking
2008 Join Escape in July, just before the markets crash in October – yikes!
2011 Become a Board member/Director at Escape
2017 Buy a stake in Escape
2019 Become a Board member for the charity Up2Us
Supporting our customers
Today as part of my role as Commercial Director I manage both our Industrial and Commercial & Administration recruitment teams and our inhouse Business Support teams including Payroll. I am also Account Director for a number of our major client accounts, directly supporting and aiming to add value to clients, candidates, and colleagues.
Growing our team
As well as supporting recruitment for our clients, I am also involved in recruiting trainees and experienced recruitment consultants for our own business, so if you have the experience and are looking to make a change or you want to take that risk like I did back in 99’ and start your career in recruitment, get in touch or find out more here.
