Alistair Lockhart's Summary
Thanks for looking me up on Linkedin.
Based in South West England, I am a busy entrepreneur who quite literally can't stand still....Passionate about content marketing, social media and recruitment, I wear a number of different hats including PR/Digital Content for small businesses in Wiltshire and Somerset (pebblesmedia), recruiting internationally in the engineering sector (Amber Resourcing) and helping out with a number of charitable and non-profit making organisations in the South West.
With over 12 years' experience in Recruitment, Sales and Management, both in the UK and internationally - including 6 years living and working in France - I have recruited across many sectors including Engineering, International Development, Sales, Social Media, Financial Services, Property, Marketing and IT. Whether I am carrying out a complex search for a technical or senior role, or handling a volume recruitment assignment, I love digging around, connecting with potential candidates and working out who would be a good fit for my clients.
With Amber Resourcing a number of high-volume (in total some 200+ candidates), short-time frame searches have been executed for global engineering consultancies during 2011/12 in the engineering and international development sectors, as well as ongoing contingency searches.
With pebblesmedia I have a passion for content, social media and PR, and share this with a growing number of (usually) entrepreneur-owned businesses in Wiltshire and Somerset to generate extra awareness, leads and revenue.
Once I've done all that I try to spend as much time as I can with my young and growing family in rural Somerset.
As a keen entrepreneur I'm always happy to connect on Linkedin (you never know where the next great idea might come from) so drop me a line and get in touch - and thanks for reading!
