Earlier in his career Tony was in banking as well as manufacturing sales. In the early ‘80s he moved into the IT industry where he spent 11 very successful years in sales and sales management for some of Europe's leading systems integration companies. As well as being a consistent top sales performer, his responsibilities included training and running a national sales team of over 60 staff.
Tony has been an employer, an employee and a candidate. He has been headhunted himself four times, including twice as a headhunter. This blend of experience working on ‘both sides of the fence’ has given him the ideal balance of experience to understand what the candidate is really looking for, as well as what the employers want.
Tony has published many articles on the internet in recruiting forums across Europe, to help job hunters who would not always get access to headhunters to find a new job. He has written a number of articles for the biggest local newspaper in his home county of Essex, giving readers the opportunity to write in with any questions.
Tony has also been the guest speaker on a BBC radio station phone in about ‘getting the job’, as well as being on a Canadian radio station programme dedicated to the recruitment industry that was broadcast across Canada and the US.
