Meet Bobby…

????????: A person smiling for the cameraDescription automatically generated with medium confidenceName and background

My name is Bobby & I am the new Head of Contracts @ Xpertise, specifically focusing on the South. I am responsible for driving further success to an already established Contract Division & my main goal is to build out and grow a Contract Division capable of dominating within Xpertise’s Technical niches.

Whilst I was travelling across Southeast Asia, I stumbled across the wonderful world of Tech Recruitment by bumping into an internal recruiter (for a Recruitment firm) on a boat to Phi Phi and have loved it ever since. I love the challenge Recruitment offers and most importantly I love that every day is different and that you can quite simply change your life by working hard and succeeding!

I am a very proud Dad to the most beautiful little girl I have ever laid my eyes on. She is my world, and she is one of my main drivers in life to be the best version of myself. Ultimately, I am a family man first! I have a beautiful fiancé who I will be making a Corbyn very soon and would love to have more children as long as I can financially give them everything they’d ever want for.

Huge, huge Arsenal fan and generally a big Football fan overall – there would typically be a game on in my house on most days.

Why did you choose Xpertise?

After over 10 years within Tech Recruitment within one Group, I was introduced to Xpertise who were looking to bring someone in to steer and fight to grow their Contracts Division. As soon as I met with Mike, Julian, Dawn & Richard I was determined to come on board. Their vision and overall Recruitment knowledge were the main factors that appealed to me most, as although I bring a lot of experience to the table, I am still super keen to learn and expand upon my overall recruitment repertoire.

It was also very convenient that Xpertise’s core markets were aligned with my previous successes, whereas I have placed multiple candidates within the Cyber, InfoSec, Infrastructure, Cloud, DevOps, Data, Software Development & Project Delivery space in the past.

Tell us an interesting or funny story about yourself…

In my younger years I used to run my own club nights in Kent (every Thursday) where we used to get Z list Celebs to come down to attract punters. In short, I made it possible for girls in the Bexley area to meet Dane Bowers, Callum Best & Arg etc..

If you could only eat one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be and why?

If I had to choose one meal to eat for the rest of my life, I would opt for something simple to avoid getting bored. I would start with pita and dips, followed by a beef burger for my main course and chocolate cake for dessert!
