What I do

Connor is responsible for managing Nesta’s recruitment campaigns from start to finish - including all administration, diary coordination and logistics.

Working in partnership with line managers across Nesta, providing advice and guidance on all aspects of the recruitment process; job analysis, candidate specifications, advertising, search and selection (including shortlisting and leading/attending interviews), and offer negotiations.


After completing his degree in politics and international relations at Keele University, Connor started his recruitment career as a consultant specialising in the hospitality and food retail markets. 

After gaining over a year of agency experience, Connor moved in-house to the HR department of St Christopher's Fellowship, a children's charity which focuses on creating a better quality of life for young people who have been through troubled upbringings and moved into the foster care system. 
Connor has now joined Nesta and is keen to use his recruitment and HR experiences to provide a high quality recruitment service to Nesta and its candidates. 
When not recruiting, Connor is a keen sportsman, citing football as his true passion, and has played at competitive academy level.
