Meet The Team
JD’s mission is to deliver an unrivalled service to clients and candidates. He believes that both parties deserve to deal with a real person rather than a faceless recruitment brand. This is why he loves visiting our clients’ premises to get a feel for their company culture, and working alongside the wonderful team listed below. When he is not following his beloved Man City, JD is a doting husband and father of two.
A serial recruiter, Matt has over 12 years’ experience within the industry, sourcing candidates across a number of sectors including Sales, Contact Centre, Financial Services and Property. Since joining in 2015, he has been tasked with driving the expansion of the agency across the North West and the South. Something of a gourmet, Matt loves indulging in his two favourite pastimes with friends and family: food and drink. He also has a soft spot for Stoke City, to say the least.
Having worked for the business since completing her A-Levels, Heather is a source of sage advice for her more junior colleagues, and is still amazed by the fact that no two days at Connections are ever the same. Mad about Cricket, Darts and Football (above all MCFC), she loves nothing more than spending time with her husband and children
Luke joined Connections in October 2015. A reformed sales executive, he started here as a temporary consultant, quickly progressing as a specialist in Sales and Customer Service recruitment thanks to his wealth of experience in volume and contact centre work. Hailing from Cardiff, our resident Welshman is a fan of Rugby (both codes) as well as being a film buff and lover of an ale or two.
The youngest member of the team, Eva joined Connections as an apprentice, and recently started her career proper as a resourcer. Eva has recently caught the travel bug. When she’s not ruling the spreadsheets, she enjoys exploring far-flung places with friends and family.
Lydia started in 2011 as an Apprentice Compliance Administrator, going on to become a Consultant. She specialises in recruiting for Administration, Secretarial and PA roles and is dedicated to developing herself and furthering the business.
Lydia was awarded apprentice of the month by ‘The Apprentice Academy’, and she recently achieved a Team Leading & Management NVQ. When she’s not learning new skills, Lydia divides her time between shopping, fanatically watching the Great British Bake Off and relaxing with her boyfriend and dog, Ted.
Our Scottish lass with a background in Customer Services and Administration, Amy is our super organised, slightly OCD addition to our team. She does a bit of everything in the office but specialises in resource support. At the weekend Amy loves doing a range of activities with her husband and daughter.
With a background in Customer Service and Marketing, Sam is the perfect addition to our small but formidable temporary staffing team. A graduate of Manchester Metropolitan Business School, she’s a passionate follower of our city’s finest musical exports (Oasis, Stone Roses, Take That, if you need to ask) Besides supporting her sons in their numerous sporting activities, Sam loves watching Rugby and escaping on weekend breaks with her husband.
With a degree in English with Linguistics and an MA in Broadcast Journalism, making great content and developing our digital presence are Sophie’s superpowers. A massive Marvel, science fiction and film fan, Sophie can be found at the cinema or the Northern Quarter’s comic book shops in her free time.
Our newest member of the team, Rebecca has a background in Professional Sector Sales and Membership and specialises in the Education Sector. She’s a University of Salford Graduate from the South but is now a proud adopted Northerner and outside of work is a travel ambassador who is learning to fly!
