Catrin is a member of our Art team, specialising in finding the best Technical Artists in the business. This isn’t her only passion though, having studied Maths at uni, she’s super talented when it comes to numbers… Unfortunately, she hasn’t quite worked out how to whistle yet, which would really come in handy when it comes to her new fur baby – Evie the Cockapoo! Although we’d had loved Catrin to persuade the orangutans she met in Borneo to fly back to the UK with her, we think Evie is a great alternative companion!
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.
Kyle finds perfect candidates to fill roles in several areas of tech, but his versatility doesn’t stop there! Pretty sure he holds the record here at Skillsearch for having participated in the most sports, including football, rugby, cricket, badminton, boxing, kickboxing, and skateboarding... Did we mention he’s a black belt in karate?! Picking up several injuries in these activities over the years has resulted in him becoming double-jointed, so we can guarantee that he’ll bend over backwards to find you a role that’s your perfect fit!
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!
Harry is our Games Design & Production Consultant and you’re in safe hands with him as he’s quite the games enthusiast himself! He used to rank in the top 10 players in the UK at Halo 3, so with this alongside his history of competing as an amateur boxer, we think he’s the perfect consultant to back your corner and help you find your dream job in games. If you want to keep him onside, make sure you don’t dawdle, as getting stuck behind slow walkers is his biggest pet peeve! Don’t worry though, you can always make it up to him with so ...

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.
Georgia is here for programmers of any shape, size or engine. She’s got some nifty technical ability herself although previously that’s been channelled into photography where she’s a technology whizz and can make the camera do anything she wishes. She works damn hard so loves her holidays to switch off and gives Milan and Tenerife as her top two destinations. We’re still slightly disappointed that she didn’t bring an armadillo back after meeting some in Tenerife though as we think an office armadillo would be wonderful!
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!
If you’re looking for a job in Workday, Charlie is our in-house expert! He’s learned from the best with his two black Labradors Ziggy and Freddy – versatile and loyal, Charlie will stick with you until he gets you settled in the right job! Catch him while you can though – Charlie’s dream is to own a house in the mountains where he can ski to his heart’s content, so get in touch before jets off to The Alps!
Christina is our UI/UX specialist and once you start working with her, she will always fight your corner – literally! She’s done martial arts since she was tiny and has been National British Savate Kickboxing Champion… so definitely someone you want on your team, whether it’s for kickboxing or recruitment. When she’s not teaching kickboxing, she’s busy at home teaching her beautiful cat Bagheera to sit, paw and twirl – anyone who can teach a cat to do tricks is pretty skilled in our books!
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.
Freya is our word wizard and seems to have beautiful words stored in her hands just ready to fall out onto a page. Lucky for us she has chosen to share her skill with us to write job descriptions, blogs and social media posts to make everything you see as enjoyable as possible. Her favourite things to do around Brighton are visits to Devils Dyke and Ditchling Beacon to enjoy the wonderful scenery so with this and her love of words we imagine that in another life she would’ve been the heroine in a Jane Austin novel or Belle from Beauty and the Beast.
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!).
Iqra moved from London down to sunny Brighton to be by the sea, and we’re lucky to have her in our tech team as a Workday specialist! Don’t let her self-confessed bread obsession fool you, Iqra is a super talented chef and loves experimenting with new recipes in her spare time. We’re just lucky we get to enjoy the yummy smells coming from the kitchen at lunch. If you’re an expert in HCM or financials, get in touch – thanks to a certificate she gained on her gap year, she can literally walk through fire to find you your perfect role!
Our ServiceNow expert and resident Peaky Blinder, Ryan is your man if you’re looking for a role or candidate to fill a ServiceNow role. With his background in kickboxing and passion for gangster films, he’ll do whatever it takes to find you your dream role… A true Brightonian, Ryan is a huge Brighton and Hove Albion supporter, so you can be sure to find him at the Amex Stadium at the weekends, or on the beach playing his jaw harp! Get in touch if you’re interested in ServiceNow roles…
Ryan looks after programmers particularly focusing on the VR/AR space. We think he’s working here mostly get his hands on new Lord of the Rings VR experiences as soon as they come out although, with his level of knowledge, maybe he should be helping make them instead! He is one of the few people on the team that is a born and bred Brightonian. In fact he has never moved far - to the point where last time he moved, it was only 2 doors down from his old place!
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.

Thanks!Antony Woods, Software Development Engineer | Simworx
I think it's not an understatement to say, I would still be looking for new opportunities without Skillsearch’s help and determination.
