Meet Richard

Hi, I am Richard, Director of Elton Recruitment.

I am highly passionate about finding the right roles for the right people. I appreciate how important it is to find a position that matches your career aspirations.

I have many years’ proven experience in the service industry including a number of senior roles in the USA hospitality industry. I moved back to the UK where I gained significant recruitment experience in the Facilities, Office Support and Hospitality sectors. After holding numerous successful positions I realised I had the ability to identify exceptional talent and decided to start my own recruitment company, Elton Recruitment.

Whether you’re actively looking for your new position or wondering what roles are currently out there, Elton Recruitment is here to help you. Give me a call today to discuss your next career move.
