Meet the team
Infraspec believes in long term, successful, partner based relationships with all our stakeholders. This takes time and investment.
After his initial career in management and financial sales, Richard joined the Corporate Services Group in his first recruitment role focused on finance and administration. In 2001, he moved to a leading engineering and technical recruitment firm where he would spend the next fifteen years successfully focusing on the infrastructure sectors. Richard has always worked within professional services recruitment, starting within health and safety before moving into the supply of planning, project controls, commercial and project management professionals. Richard advanced to become Associate Director, where he would go on to deliver the most profitable division for the company.
In 2017, Richard formed Infraspec to provide customers with a more exclusive and collaborative service. Richard's detailed understanding of the infrastructure sectors and disciplines allows him to identify the best candidates with the right cultural fit for his clients. This is something he believes is more critical now, in the current climate, than ever before.
At home, Richard is a family man with two sons that occupy his time. He is also a FA qualified football coach who coaches his local junior team.
