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.

Dean Antunes

Recruitment Consultant

Dean is our international man of travel, having grown up in South Africa with a Portuguese family, and focuses on placing developers outside of the UK. He has first-hand experience moving around the globe which means he is one of the best people to go to if you’re looking to make a move yourself. He also came to recruitment from working in property so can give advice on that side too!

Andy Milford

BI and Analytics Consultant

Our BI and Data Analytics specialist Andy has been recruiting for over 15 years so knows his stuff. He’s an avid hoarder (you should see under his desk) and a keen rugby union fan supporting Ireland. He occasionally pretends to know what he’s talking about regarding football (he really doesn’t) but is more likely to be found reading a book than on the terraces.

Tom Matthews

Ruby on Rails Consultant

Tom works in the Ruby space 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.

Katie Jones

Games & Interactive Delivery 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!

Lucy Rowland

Social Media Specialist

Our Social Media guru Lucy is one of our secret superstars. As well as supporting Catrin she is also responsible for making the content you see on LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, Glassdoor and Instagram look fabulous. She also knows when our team need a kick in the backside to provide content and is happy to offer it.

Stefan Kasanin

Games & Interactive Development Consultant

Stefan spends his days speaking to the very best Developers on the planet. When not recruiting he tends to keep his hands busy – he delivered a lamb when he was 10, completed Metal Gear Solid 2 in less than 2 hours (just missing the World Record) and has completed every CoD in Veteran mode since Modern Warfare. He can also swallow his own tongue without choking. In the office he is our meme and internet culture expert and knows the lyrics to every song ever...try and test him.

Jake Andrews

Workday, HRIS and Finance Systems Delivery Consultant

Jake works alongside Adam to introduce Workday, HRIS and Finance consultants to brilliant opportunities. Jake is our recruitment “duck” – despite giving impression on the surface of being the most laid back person in the office he works really hard underneath the surface to keep one step ahead of his incredibly busy market.

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!

Stuart Gillespie

CEO

Our CEO Stuart is a highly successful and entrepreneurial business owner with over 25 years’ commercial experience. Over those years he’s managed to cultivate not one but two incredibly successful recruitment businesses as well as a marvellous beard. Stuart has created many employment opportunities on the way and despite being slightly terrifying in interview Stuart shows his warm, fluffy side and love of paisley shirts when you’re working for him.

Jack Reid

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.

Guy DeRosa

Games & Interactive Business Development Manager

Guy's role as our Business Development Manager means he is always out and about at every event he can find. Guy has a genuine life-long love of games and even dabbles in part-time games coding himself although he confesses he is better at playing them, especially FIFA for which he made it to the final of a tournament to represent the UK at the ‘FIFA Interactive World Cup’ in Shanghai. If you speak to Guy, ask him about his former life as a ‘Karaoke Singer’ on an exotic island.

Ben Sardari

Interactive Gaming Recruitment Specialist

Ben works with everything to do with AR/VR/MR. 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.

Joe McKernan

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.

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!

Harry Kwok

Art Delivery 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.

Adam Leaver

Workday, HRIS and Finance Systems Specialist

Specialising in Workday, HRIS and Finance tech Adam is always the first in the office and often the last one to leave. We asked Adam to tell us a bit about his personal life but he assured us that he was too focused on work to have one. Despite this he does enjoy the occasional trip to Craven Cottage to watch Fulham although we are not sure that qualifies as stress relief.

Mark Lloyd

Senior Oracle Consultant

Our Oracle expert, Mark, has dedicated nearly a decade to growing our Oracle practice here at Skillsearch. He is a keen cricketer who bats a bit, bowls a bit less and is amazing at standing in the field. A Manchester United fan and a proud Father, Mark holds the record for having more things from Amazon delivered to the office than everyone else combined. He also has an infectious laugh so try and get him going when you speak to him.

I met Giles and Guy at Develop and in the months since the event, Skillsearch has visited the campus on two occasions and worked with our students collectively and individually on improving their CVs and what goes into making a good portfolio. Our students respond well to their positive energy and encouragement, and their passion for games development. Giles and Guy are mad for Unity and because of them, I have encouraged all our games students to become proficient on the engine, and pushed the business case for the university purchasing 20UnityPro licenses. And, best of all, Giles and Guy do what it says on the tin – find our students jobs in games.

Hope Caton, Lecturer, Games Technology Leader | inKUbator

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

As a leading Oracle consultancy we initially engaged with Skillsearch around 2 years ago when they were just part of our recruitment supplier network. Over that period they have demonstrated a consistent level of delivery in the niche Oracle space that has led us to dispense with our other recruiters and work exclusively with Skillsearch. We have taken the relationship to the level that they come to us with potential sales leads and in turn we are happy to promote them, when appropriate, directly to our clients.

UK Award-Winning Oracle Consultancy

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 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

Giles and the Skillsearch team are unbelievably helpful and accommodating, even in the face of last minute requests and difficult-to-fill roles. Highly recommended.

Tom Page, Studio Director | PLA Studios

Giles is the best recruiter I had the pleasure to work with. He is very talented and has all the good contacts, he also is unstoppable, once he finds out what you are looking for, he won't rest until he delivers. Thanks again for helping me finding my dream job

Caina Leao, Senior Flash Developer | Endemol UK Limited

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.

Pete Gunter, Senior Developer | Mediatonic

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

When we need extra resources, Skillsearch is always one of our first ports of call – Giles has a very good understanding of our industry and can always find the perfect candidate for our needs.

Marina Burton, Plug-In Media
