  • Civil Engineering
      Mark Blakey - Civil Engineering Vertical Director

      Since graduating from the university of Manchester with a BA in Finance nearly 15 years ago, I have worked in recruitment for the built environment recruitment. Starting my career as a young trainee I have progressed my career through management to Director of Civil Engineering at Anderselite. My role has changed considerably over the past 15 years and with hindsight my biggest enjoyment has always been to see things and situations improve. Externally to see candidates improve their lives, through greater income, career development, and job satisfaction. To see client’s complete fantastic projects, to see these projects improve our own lives through better travel links and reduced congestion. Anderselite offers civil engineering and rail companies a better experience. Our staff’s focus is first and foremost on the candidate and client. Our infrastructure and rail business have practice leads with over 40 years’ experience in these markets. We understand the market, understand our clients and what they can individually offer our customers. Ultimately, we understand the importance of the right candidate for the right client, an understanding that only comes from experience and expertise.

  • Construction
      John Hobbs - Construction Vertical 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 vertical. 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.

  • Rail
      Colin Edge - Rail Vertical Director

      I have 28 years’ experience in Recruitment – my area of expertise is Rail and infrastructure – built business from scratch providing top class talent to my Clients. Recruitment is a great industry I have found work for 1000’s of excellent people at the same time identified key skills for my Clients. Making a real difference to their business and project delivery. In 28 years many of my Clients have become contractors and similarly candidates become Clients. Thankfully they have valued my services and returned time and time again. Here at Anderselite we make a big difference through our network of Consultants and Offices we support fantastic companies. I have two great teams working for me who will find you the people you need or the ideal role for your career move. Life outside of business is important to me. I have 4 children (3 have their own families and homes) and a very lucky wife. Weekends would ideally be spent out and about cycling or golf – however I sometimes concede mow lawns and other DIY pleasures!

  • Trades

      Dan Butler - Trades Vertical Director

      After gaining my degree in Economics and Philosophy at the University of Leeds, I joined Anderselite (and the recruitment industry) in January 2005. I’ve been really lucky to be a part of this company from 12 years now, starting as a Recruitment Consultant and working my way up to Vertical Director. With experience at all levels of the company, I have a very keen interest in our consultant’s development and strive to ensure that their career progression is clearly available. I gained my REC qualification in 2006 and in 2013 achieved my Level 3 CMI Management Training accreditation.
      Away from work I have a young family which keep me entertained and very busy. I regularly play badminton in a singles league, run a doubles club and, when time permits, try to escape and play golf… Badly.
      I am a keen supporter of Aston Villa Football Club and have recently completed a full renovation of our house – it’s much more satisfying getting stuck in to the work yourself.

  • National Accounts

      Ben Vernon - Head of National Accounts

      I have worked in Infrastructure Projects Recruitment for 12 years supplying Contract and Permanent Engineering and Project Management team personnel.
      I started as an Account Manager, managing a 90 strong contractor workforce at Network Rail delivering GSM-R and FTN capability.
      With the support of my team, we identify and supply the critical skills required by my customers to deliver their projects. I feel we have contributed to some very high-profile projects such as Crossrail, Heathrow Terminal 5 & HS1.
      Apart from my wife, son and 2 dogs, my love outside of work is training in Wado-ryu Karate 3 times a week. I help teach the 6-13 year old kids at the club; I get real satisfaction seeing the children develop and grade for higher belts.
