We are Chroma Recruitment.
Based in Manchester, we are specialists in Tech, Digital and Engineering recruitment, supporting professionals and companies across the UK. We provide permanent and contract staffing solutions, tailoring our approach to suit your requirements.
Founded in 2016, our commitment is to Listen, Understand, Consult and Deliver the best possible service.

With a multi-talented team on hand to offer assistance, our personalised approach means that you’ll be able to find the ideal new hire or position in no time.
To us, the personal and cultural fit is just as important as the technical, and getting the right balance is key.
I’m a Co-Founder and Director of Chroma Recruitment and keep a hand in the recruitment activities as well. I’ve been in the industry for over 20 years, where my specialism is business development across the Manchester tech scene. I love getting out and about and meeting with my clients.
Outside of work, my loves in life are red wine, Manchester United, a flutter, and most of all my two little babies (and my darling wife of course!).
I’m the Director and one of the Co-Founders here at Chroma Recruitment, with a focus on heading up the IT Division. I started this business after 20 years in recruitment, and have used my experience to manage permanent and contract sales within the company.

I’m the Director of Engineering here at Chroma and with nearly 9 years in the recruitment industry, I like to keep close to how the market is changing and evolving. I am hands-on with recruitment, as well as training and developing the growing team around me.

I’m the Head of Operations here at Chroma, so my job spans all departments of the business. I deal with strategy, finance, HR, contractor relationships, training, and compliance. I also keep the office stocked with post-it notes, which is a full-time job in itself!
Outside of work you’ll find me on my yoga mat, hiking up a hill, traveling as much of Europe as I possibly can, or eating a lot of food.
I am the Head of Healthcare for Chroma Recruitment. With 7 years experience in the Healthcare sector, I am opening up a new division for recruitment in Elderly and Children’s Residential Care. I’m looking to speak to Nurses, Managers, and Directors within the Children’s and Elderly Care Homes, and I also currently have a list of highly desirable Children’s Registered Management and Operations positions. I like to work with my clients and candidates as an advisor to help improve their careers or assist them on strategic hires.
At home, I am recently married to Thaissa. Together we have 2 beautiful girls ,Thalia and Thaila, and the TH’s continue into the names of our 2 bunnies, 4 dogs, 3 cats and 1 turtle… can you tell we like animals?
