Laurence Howell.

Senior Tech Recruitment Consultant

I have been in the industry for just over a year now but have advanced very quickly. Studying Politics and Social Policy at university helped to develop my argument, creation, negotiation and research skills. I have an excellent track record in direct sales and fundraising for big UK clients. I am now a Tech Recruitment Specialist based in Malta. I focus mainly on backend technologies, specifically .Net.

I think of candidates as more than just a deal and clients as more than just a £ sign, I think its important to remember the human side of Recruitment and try to be as fair, personable, and professional as I can be at all times.
