A sharper focus
2020 is the start of an exciting new chapter for Techconsult. Originally part of Techconsult Norway, we’ve completed a Management Buyout that will allow us to sharpen our focus on our specialist areas, especially across the North of England. We’re looking forward to building on our strengths, growing our team and cultivating new relationships with many more clients and candidates.
Sarah and Steve,
Directors of Techconsult
Steve Guest | Managing Director
Steve has been recruiting for science, technology and engineering organisations since 1996.
He started with a desk phone and a box of cards for clients and candidates. Recruitment was a lot more straightforward in the 90s!
Today, technology drives almost all the decisions recruiters make but Steve strongly believes in getting to really understand a client’s resourcing challenges – speaking to them personally and asking intelligent questions is the best way to add real value in the recruitment process.
Every day, Steve solves complex puzzles for clients.
He knows how talented people can add considerable value to a company’s infrastructure – get it wrong and the cost to the business can be huge. That’s why it pays to engage someone with Steve’s specialist experience and expertise.
Outside work, Steve is an assistant coach at Hartlepool United Women’s FC and an avid tea drinker.
Sarah Taylor | Operations Director
Sarah is a qualified accountant who’s been in recruitment for 10 years.
Before that, she gained more than 20 years’ experience working in science and chemical organisations.
Sarah is the backbone of Techconsult, providing operational support in all aspects of the business, keeping a keen eye on our financials, looking at future investments and ensuring that the business continues to grow.
When she’s not balancing our business affairs, she’s also a talented recruiter. She loves building strong relationships with clients and candidates and finding successful solutions to even the most complex of resourcing challenges.
Outside work, Sarah can be found running the fells and peaks around the North York Moors National Park. A short run for Sarah is 20 miles with her longest run being over 100 miles!
