Our Team

Jo Faria

I originally came from a background in professional services, specialising in HR, I joined the recruitment industry through some great people that I met and formed lasting relationships with. Originally working as a temps consultant, I eventually moved on to become a permanent consultant, manager and then regional manager.  I have been lucky to work with great people and teams which has in turn resulted in many awards regionally and nationally. I have recruited through just about every sector you can think of and many many types of skill sets too – this includes marketers and accountants.

I love marketing recruitment because: Marketing for me offers a chance to meet a huge diverse range of candidates and clients – with equally diverse skills sets and needs.
Guilty pleasure: Cream Teas!
Little known fact: Pretty Muddy Participant!
Favourite advert: Currently the Money Supermarket dance off
Superpower I want: I love history so ….. Time travel

Andy Farr

I started in recruitment way back in 1984 at Michael Page, when it was just a small 5 office business in UK. I learnt loads about working in a small, energetic, fully focussed team that knew the value of teamwork. They invented the term ‘work hard, play hard!  I eventually left and started Nicholas Andrews in 1987 with my business partner.  Over the next 14 years we grew the business to 14 offices and 150 staff, then sold it to Manpower.  I had a couple of years off and in 2004, started Andrew Farr Associates. Ably supported by many ex Nicholas Andrews employees, this new venture grew  to 7 offices and 50 staff.  I then sold the business to Randstad in 2008. Since then I have been involved as an investor to numerous small companies.

What do you love about the Midlands? The people for their direct, blunt approach and as a mad Birmingham City fan, the football!
Why do you love marketing: It is always pushing the boundaries
Guilty pleasure: Chocolate
Little known fact: I was offered, and turned down, the job as drummer with, at that time, the unknown Dexys Midnight Runners – 6 months later they were Number 1 with Come on Eileen – and I’m supposed to give career advice!!!!!
Favourite ad : John Lewis Christmas ad (Lily Allen) – love Christmas

Charlotte Booth CRM Executive

After working within the Aerospace Industry for 6 years, I decided it was time for a change…. A new challenge. I thoroughly enjoy talking to new people and finding out their backgrounds, so I just knew I needed a job that would involve exactly that. I was extremely lucky to be given the chance to join an amazing team of recruiters. I just know, I will never be looking back!

What you love best about recruitment: I am super new to recruitment, but the atmosphere in the office after a candidate has been offered their dream job its just amazing!

Your guilty pleasure : I would say Netflix…. I am one of those kinds of people that would binge watch a series in one night whilst munching away on a big bag chili heatwave Doritos!

Favourite advert: I like to record my programmes so I can skip the adverts ; )

If you had a superpower what would it be: I’d love to be that fly on the wall, so I can see what my little boy gets up to when I’m not there.

Sarah Bishop – Marketing Manager

Having worked in Marketing for over 12 years, it’s so exciting to join such a fantastic agency at such a formative time. Having seeing lots of growth already, this team are set for great things –  they work incredibly hard and love what they do. To be working with them is not only hilarious, but inspiring seeing how they work together to achieve their goals.

What do you love about the Midlands? The diversity there’s nothing you can’t get or do here. Also the people are so warm and friendly!

Why do you love marketing: Because it’s all about communication!! And I do love a chat! There are so many ways to reach people and do something different!

Guilty pleasure: Real housewives of ANYWHERE!! Trash TV at it’s finest!

Favourite ad :There are too many to choose from – I love the classics like Coca-Cola’s Holidays are coming! But more recently,  i think it’s really interesting to see what Gillette have done in response to the #metoo campaign – Is this the best a man can get!
