Alex joined Pod as a Senior Consultant to work in our logistics team, focussing on placing professionals into the retail industry, working with the likes of Arcadia, Lidl, M&S and Whitbread at mid and senior level across the whole of the UK. In 2018, Alex was promoted to Principal Consultant and specialises in retail and start up function.
As well as doing his day job, like NJ, Alex has recently made the transition to a Client Solutions Manager role, specialising in the SME and scale up space. Alex has a fantastic track record of delivering to these business, including the likes of Gousto, Zencargo, Patch, Mindful Chef, Flowerbx and many more. Alex's new role will allow him to deliver senior searches to our scale up clients, whilst ensuring we are partnering with these businesses in the best way. So if you're the CEO/COO of a start-up business and want to know how to build or scale your supply chain, Alex is the man to speak to!
Alex studied Sports Science at the University of Birmingham and had high hoped of becoming the next David Beckham or Andy Murray, but he soon realised his real passion was for recruitment and he spent just over 4 years working for Michael Page in their logistics team, recruiting for the likes of Wincanton, Alliance Healthcare and Krispy Kreme before he came and joined us at Pod HQ!
He made quite an impression on the office within a short time, quickly coining himself the office ‘lad’ and telling ridiculous jokes and one-liners. When he’s not in the gym working out, he is either in the pub or...........well that’s it really. He’s a lad after all.
