    Outside of work, Chris's main passion is sailing, but he is also a big F1 fan and fast becoming a Leicester Tigers fan. He’s given up on ever trying to enjoy or learn to play golf…

Chris joined the business in 2011 as part of the Macildowie Training Programme and progressed through our Part-Qualified, Qualified and Senior Financial Recruitment desks. As part of a business growth strategy he recruited for Blue Chip clients in Northamptonshire and Milton Keynes, quickly growing and developing his desk.

After a successful period of growth in those markets, Chris established our Milton Keynes division, before returning to Leicester to run the Financial recruitment team. Following his success in those roles, Chris became Regional Managing Director for the North East Midlands and South Yorkshire.

He also specialises in Senior Executive Finance Recruitment across the wider East Midlands.

    • Quote: Darius helped us do this by delivering a free 90 minute workshop that was focused on helping us to optimise our Employer Brand. It helped us define our 'purpose,' and create more of an awareness as to why someone would want to work for our business.  We were also given some great insight into how to enhance the interview experience and which levers to pull on LinkedIn to leverage the brand., Quote Reference: Jessica Davies, Internal Communications and Engagement Partner at Joules
    • Quote: Darius was highly recommended to me by a colleague when I was seeking my first HR job post-graduation and I can absolutely see why. He took the time to genuinely understand my level of skill and experience and subsequently put me forward for several relevant roles with a range of well-known organisations. He has been friendly and professional throughout my job search. I particularly appreciated his efforts to ensure I was making the decisions that felt right for me in relation to potential roles. I would wholeheartedly recommend Darius to anyone looking for an HR role in the Milton Keynes/Northampton area., Quote Reference: Ruth Harley, HR Graduate at Whitbread

Darius has built his strong relationship up with the Norbert Dentressangle recruitment team through his demonstration of integrity and desire to understand our business, which in turn leads him to submitting only the most qualified candidates., Quote Reference: Katie Shaw, Internal Recruiter at Careers@Hudson

I’m a recruitment outsourcing expert.

Having worked for three of the country’s most successful recruitment outsourcing firms, in different guises and across vastly different accounts – from Operations Manager of the largest MSP in Europe, to the lone running of an SME-sized RPO – I’ve experienced a lot in my nearly 10 years in recruitment.

I believe the future for permanent recruitment for every company SME-sized and above, should be a partnership focused RPO. Most businesses state that their people are their biggest asset, and an RPO is the best recruitment method to protect those assets when they’re in the process of entering your business. In tandem with Macildowie’s Retention Service, our RPO is also the best way to help protect those assets when they’re already in your business too.

I believe all RPOs should focus on three key things for their clients: cost, time and talent.

In a post-Covid-19 society, these things will matter even more - with budgets being tighter, smaller teams doing more, and the importance of “the best, not the first” candidate being paramount - and therefore the benefit of an RPO relationship to businesses will be even greater.

Macildowie’s RPO has those three elements at its heart, but it can go further than that, and in what we believe, a unique way.

Macildowie’s RPO is small and flexible and as such its service can genuinely be tailored to exactly what your business needs from a recruitment function (something that larger outsourcers with significant overheads are unable to do). We’re also able to offer two exceptional value-adding services which – from what I understand no other competitor is currently doing – in our Retention Services and People Hub facility. All of which is underpinned by years of quality Macildowie service.

My aim is for Macildowie RPO to be a trusted and valued partner for our clients, delivering on the three key objectives of cost, time and talent – and doing it in a unique way that we can be proud of.
