Meet The Team

Our team is the beating heart of the business and our greatest asset. You’ll find we’re lean-in positive people, who are invested in your success and will go the extra mile for you. We’d describe ourselves as straight talking but kind, humorous, trustworthy and if we’re honest, a tad geeky!

Meet some of our wonderful team members below:

Stephen

Director

I’m Stephen and I’m the Managing Director of Initi8 Recruitment. I’ve been working in technical recruitment since we were dealing with the millennium bug, and have been keeping pace with it ever since.

My job is to build and drive our process, to develop the team and to act as the account director to many of our clients. I love my industry and understand that we have an important role to play in helping our candidates and clients achieve their goals, to promote neurodiversity and to add value at every part of the recruitment lifecycle.

Outside the office, I’m a proud father of two, still think I can play rugby, have in depth knowledge of 90's music and "appeared" in the movie Gladiator.

Louise

Senior Manager

I’m Louise, and I’m a Manager at Initi8. I’ve worked at Initi8 for 12 years and now head up the Account Management function, ensuring the highest standards of service are offered to all clients.

I mentor our technical consultants in client management best practice, to ensure every customer engagement is a successful one. I’m also a hands on recruiter, acting as an Account Manager for some of our biggest clients and as an Account Director to other key accounts. I love building long lasting relationships with people based on trust, which is a key ingredient in all of my successful client and candidate partnerships.

Outside of work, I’m a bit of a foodie and luckily I’m also a keen runner, who you’ll find pounding the streets and parks of Surrey!

Calvin

Principal Consultant

I’m Calvin and I’m a Principal Consultant at Initi8. I’ve been with the team since 2018 and specialise in Senior and Leadership roles across Software Engineering (Golang and Java) and Salesforce. Being immersed in the tech industry, I enjoy keeping up with the latest trends. I work in close partnership with my candidates and clients, giving them the best possible career and hiring experience.

Joining Initi8 has been the best career decision I’ve made. I’ve received training from some of the top individuals in the industry, progressed to my current position and fulfilled my personal goal of buying a house!

When I’m not working, you’ll find me in an outdoor swimming pool or enjoying the gastro delights of London – life’s all about balance!

Zak

Principal Consultant

I’m Zak and I’m a Principal Consultant at Initi8. I entered the world of recruitment in 2015. My role consists of building long term relationships with candidates and finding them opportunities that will allow them to thrive. I also develop new business leads and work with existing clients to understand what's important to them when hiring Software Engineers.

My time at Initi8 has allowed me to make some notable achievements, such paying off all my student loan within the first 5 years of graduating. On top of this, I’ve had the luxury of travelling across the world from America to Thailand in addition to the odd occasional solo trip. 

Outside of work, you’ll usually find me in the gym or playing for my football team. And if I’m not playing football, I’ll be watching it. I also love travelling and immersing myself into different cultures.

Kristian

Consultant

Hi my name is Kristian, I joined Initi8 to identify and match cutting edge talent with career changing opportunities.

Recently graduated from full stack engineer course and after spending good part of my career developing large teams as a General Manager, I decided to combine my passion for technology and people to provide specialist career advice to top talent in the market and develop recruiting strategies with brands across the world.

In my spare time I continuously sharpen my skills as a developer and build web applications to stay in tune with the ever evolving technologies.
