My specialism:

Provide retained and contingency advice to a broad range of clients across real estate and rural estate management.

Clients that I work with:

At Beach Baker I have built relationships with a range of clients that include Property Consultants, Investment Managers, Property Companies and Retail & Leisure Operators across London and the South East. This includes surveyors working in the following disciplines: Valuation, Analysts, Lease Consultancy, Property Management, Asset Management, Estate Management, Development, Investment, Agency, Acquisition.

My approach to recruitment:

Meeting my clients (in order to take a thorough brief) and candidates face to face and building strong relationships is central to my approach to recruitment. I believe in a personal and professional way of working collaboratively which generally achieves good results.

What keeps me motivated:

Understanding what is happening in the market (‘on the ground’) and providing both candidates and clients with sound advice and maintaining long term relationships. Avid sportsman and long- suffering spurs supporter. 

What I do differently:

By taking more of a consultative approach to recruitment campaigns in addition to understanding further about the surveyors I work with I can successfully pair their strengths to the right business. This has allowed me to secure the right hire for the long- term benefit to employers in the property field.

What keeps me busy at the weekend:

Outside of the office I enjoy sport, reading, film and spending time with family. Since having a young family reading and sport have taken a backward step and my wife and I are often seen at National Trust venues to keep our son and daughter out of trouble.

Now I am often found sampling ales in the comfort of my own home rather than socialising with friends in pubs.  

My favourite meal:

Enjoy curry (Indian) both home cooked and takeaway.

My favourite film:

That’s very tough to choose one, I am a big fan of Wes Anderson and I would include The Grand Budapest Hotel in this.

My favourite drink:

Beer, bitters and IPAs go down well.

My favourite travel destinations:

Had an amazing holiday off The West Coast of California for a wedding but not sure how frequent this destination will be and Summer in Norfolk is always enjoyable (I get the odd round of golf in at The Royal West Norfolk with my Dad).

Not many people know this about me:

Tenuous link, caught Matt Prior in the U14 cricket cup final to help win the cup.
