Back to Consultants

John Hobbs

  • Position: Construction/Civil Engineering Director

After gaining a degree from Sheffield Hallam University in Recreation Management, I decided that the recruitment industry was the way to go. I started off 18 years ago working in an agency that supplied industrial staff – after 2 years, I left to join Anderselite and I’ve been here ever since. I started as a recruitment consultant and worked my way up through to vertical director.

I have always run a white collar temp construction desk, supplying managers and engineers predominantly within the Yorkshire market. I am also a Fellow of the Institute of Recruitment Practice and hold my Level 3 CMI Management Accreditation. Having worked my way through the company the best part of my job is still the day to day interaction with both clients and consultants. In my current role, I am very keen to ensure that we deliver the best experience to all of our customers, clients and candidates across all of our locations within the construction and civil engineering verticals. I also love to help our internal consultants develop their own desks and their future careers in recruitment.

Outside of work, my interests are mainly sports-related. I’m a keen football fan and runner, having competed in a number of races from 5k all the way up to full marathons.
