Stanley Porthouse

Production & Design Consultant

Every person in our Games team loves their video games. They’d be in the wrong job if they didn’t! But Stan is our shining star. At one stage he had a FIFA world ranking of 254 so its no surprise that on our bimonthly gaming nights, everyone fights to have him on their team! But he’s more than just games - Stan is a great listener and has a real love of dogs which, as we all know, only says good things about his character.

Catrin Jones

Operations Manager

Our Operations Manager Catrin is here for all our Consultants, Contractors and Clients for everything they need help with throughout the recruitment process. A priceless point of contacts for a number of client and candidate enquiries, she is an important part of the strong relationships we build and maintain as a business. Despite her talent in a vast number of activities however, Catrin’s main regret is her inability to whistle, although we have to admit it is quite amusing to watch her try.

Joe McKernan

Senior VFX and Animation Consultant

Joe is our Animation and VFX Consultant, his passion for the latter springing from being blown away by the effects in Star Wars at a young age. His love hasn’t wavered and Joe always seems to bring out a new Star Wars t shirt every dress down we have! We are lucky to have him considering that he once got stuck half way up a mountain in Borneo so now he goes for flatter holidays – most recently driving across America in a Mustang.

Matt Giles

Development Consultant

Matt took his first family holiday to America when he was 7 and while he may have moved onto other things for a while, it seems America is where his heart lies! At Skillsearch he focuses solely on people and companies in the US so has all the knowledge you need if you’re there already or looking to make the move! Matt will bend over backwards for everyone he’s working with to help them find what they’re looking for. Just don’t ask him to do that physically though – his limbo skills are abysmal!

Richard Fisher

Managing Director

Our MD fitness fanatic and father of 3 Richard will be found running or in the gym every lunch as he says that’s the only place he ever gets any peace and quiet. Voted 9 out of 10 as a geek by the team Richards top 3 loves are Star Wars, Tottenham Hotspur and his family – although we aren’t sure in which order. Richard is the office oracle and says what he doesn’t know about recruitment isn’t worth knowing – we haven’t managed to prove him wrong yet!

Jack Reid

Senior Production & Design Consultant

Jack looks after three areas, Games Design, Games Production and Game Analytics yet with the help of his near photographic memory he will always remember you and everything you’ve ever discussed. He’s no stranger to production himself, spending a few years producing incredible tapas as Head Chef of a Spanish Tapas restaurant. Jack also owns a pug called Pumba who was the ring bearer at his wedding and even got his own custom suit to match the groomsmen.

Harry Kwok

Art Consultant

Working alongside Alex, Harry is dedicated to speaking to brilliant Games Artists across the globe. A County level Squash champion Harry also likes a sedate life and is more likely to be found at the weekend with a fishing rod in hand rather than a racquet.

Ben Sardari

Interactive Consultant

Ben works with everything to do with AR/VR/XR. Being an only child is what Ben attributes to giving him his love of immersive worlds and he says that he was born to work in Augmented Reality in particular as ‘AR’ turns up twice in his surname.

Katie Jones

Development Consultant

Katie is our candidate queen and spends her time listening to people paint pictures of their dream job ready for whenever that job pops up. Katie’s claim to fame is meeting the Queen which in turn led to movie stardom (sort of)- ask her about it!

Alice Zahra

Marketing Manager

Alice is the brain behind the beautiful content you see coming from Skillsearch! She’s a pro at taking all of our haphazard ideas and turning them into the interesting and eye catching posts that you know and love. This is a real skill of hers in all parts of life as she’s known for making some pretty interesting recipes using whatever she can find in the kitchen. We do have to agree that the best thing she’s made so far though are her two beautiful sons (although her work here comes a close second!).

Tom Matthews

Ruby on Rails and Blockchain Consultant

Tom works with Ruby and Blockchain and is committed to introducing the best developers in the market to the best opportunities. Tom found his way to Brighton via Tunbridge Wells, London and New Zealand. He is a massive football fan supporting Fulham and has some odd quirks such as he can only listen to music if the volume is set on an even number.

Joe Forsyth

Development Consultant

Looking to your next passion project? Joe works with developers of all kinds and will only settle for the best. With his own passions he’s reached incredible heights, being grade 8 in drums and fluent in Russian so he understands how to help you excel and get to the top of your game. Only one Achilles heel though – he can’t eat cheese! How does he cope?!

Alex Lunn

Senior Art Consultant

Alex places Artists across the globe partially due to his willingness to respond to emails or calls at all hours. Alex himself has mad skills when putting pen to paper and creating a caricature – often of those of us in the office - and is our self-appointed social secretary, organising great nights of comedy, theatre and whatever Brighton has to offer that month!

Sanson Wray

VFX & Animation Consultant

Sanson works with Joe to find the absolute best Animators and VFX Artists although their talents don't stop there! This team are our shining stars when it comes to getting to know a company inside and out and being able to complete a whole team. So if you're looking to hear about the company of your dream - get in touch with Sanson!

Giles Fenwick

Games and Interactive manager

Giles runs our Gaming & Interactive division and specialises in forming tight knit teams, whether that’s for a studio or in our office. He represented his county at rugby for every age group from 12 onwards which no doubt helped him to cultivate his excellent understanding of team dynamics. Giles is known for his warmth and willingness to take time to work through any issues that may arise, although make sure you don’t try and share his food as then you won’t be getting a warm welcome – Giles doesn’t share food!

The Skillsearch team did a fantastic job and were a real pleasure to work with. Their in-depth knowledge of the employers they work with, their recruiting processes and key staff was a real boon in both finding the right position and the subsequent application. Having worked with Skillsearch both as an employer and as a candidate I would thoroughly recommend them as being among the best in the industry.

Dan Borthwick, Mobile Technical lead | King

Skillsearch work in a very unique way compared to many recruitment companies in the industry. They take the time to understand the candidates and through this have developed a strong network, certainly everyone I have worked with speaks of them very highly. They have put me forward for roles only where there is a good match in skills, so taking the time to understand the in depth roles they fill. Which is echoed in the comments from the companies I have worked for. The proof of this is the contract and a permanent role that they have placed me in, during which time they always act with the utmost professionalism. I look forward to working with them again.

Senior Cognos Consultant

Katie is a great recruiter to work with. She is very efficient at replying and dealing to any form of communication I sent and the wider Skillsearch team are also always very supportive. I look forward to working with you again.

Luke Zammit, Unity Developer | Future Games of London

Skillsearch helped me find my first contracting role in BI. They were very polite, helpful and enthusiastic. They found a very good position for someone with my skills and I was placed immediately. A wholly enjoyable job finding experience and I would definitely recommend Skillsearch to any skilled data analyst.

Data Analyst Candidate

I have worked with Skillsearch for the duration of my project on a number of recruitment opportunities. Skillsearch offer a professional and collaborative service providing a quick turn around with quality resource. When defining a resource requirement, Skillsearch worked with me to ensure they understood the full requirements and thus eliminated the submission of inappropriate type candidates. I would gladly use Skillsearch for future resource requirements, knowing that their professional, collaborative and honest approach ensures that a good working relationship is created.

Stuart Entwistle, Global Payroll Project Manager

Giles and the Sillsearch team exceptional recruiters, on multiple occasions he has delivered more potential hires (high quality relevant candidates) to interview than any other tech agency I have worked with. I especially appreciate his capacity to understand our need, and adjust as the process moves forward, with minimal need for how intervention.

Gil Teixeira, Head of Production | Arkavis Siam Co. | Bangkok, Thailand

We have worked with the Skillsearch team for almost three years now as our only recruitment supplier, and with great success supplying staff across all disciplines. They are the only agency that seem to truly understand the interactive space and have a genuinely broad network within it! It is also always a nice touch when we bump into the Skillsearch team sponsoring and attending various social events surrounding cutting edge technologies. Highly recommended!!

Daniel Cheetham, Head of Interactive | Happy Finish

Skillsearch has been a great help in finding and securing my position at GTI. They were brilliant for advice and that meant the whole application and interview process went very smoothly for me, and ultimately ended with me getting the job.

Toby New, Developer | GTI

The folks at Skillsearch are all you could ask for in a recruitment agency: polite, enthusiastic and thorough. Working with Giles, Guy and Katie has been a real pleasure and I would definitely turn to Skillsearch to help me in the future, as either an employer or candidate. Thanks!

Antony Woods, Software Development Engineer | Simworx

Giles and the team recently helped me find the perfect role in central Brighton. Whilst working with him I was highly impressed with his knowledge of the industry, diligence and professionalism. A cut above many other recruiters I've worked with; every step of the way he showed an impeccable understanding of my skills and requirements and was able to leverage his contacts to find the perfect match in no time at all. I won't hesitate to recommend Skillsearch to my friends and colleagues in the future.
