We’re very excited to be welcoming Hayley Swords as part of the Hamlyn Williams team in London, as she takes the role as Director for Life Sciences, Automation & Technology. 

Hayley has been in I.T. & Security Recruitment for more than 7 years, joining us from one of the world's largest I.T. recruiters. Starting as a consultant in recruitment, she quickly moved on to managing her own team of permanent consultants for 4 years. She has since worked in Technology recruitment, finding sought-after tech talent skills in London & beyond.

Her most recent role saw her oversee Business Development teams for leading tech platforms, including AWS, Azure & Salesforce. She joins Hamlyn Williams, overseeing Technology, Engineering & Life Sciences teams in London where she is already looking to grow the team with trainee consultants, delivery consultants, business development consultants & 360 recruiters.

Working alongside senior leadership, we’re excited to have Hayley's skills as a recruiter and see her grow our teams to their full potential.

Hayley says:

"As soon as I talked to people in Hamlyn Williams about the role, I was bought into the vision of the team in London. I've come from one of the biggest I.T. recruitment firms in the world and I see that ambition here.

We want to grow quickly, but keep the great culture and amazing environment we have that makes people excited to work and empowered to succeed. We do want to double our headcount – but it’s not just about that - we’re finding more people to take our training to the next level too and help offer quick career growth. 

What we can offer is amazing and I'm excited to help improve it further for those joining us and clients. It’s a tough time for many clients right now – but we have a team with deep relationships with businesses and candidates and that focus will continue. I've been impressed by the amazing candidates and brilliant relationships we have with them.

I want to bring share my expertise in finding the best niche talent in the market and help our team build a world class service ready to place talent that makes the difference quickly when needed. As we grow, we want to still offer the best talent in the market who aren't interviewing everywhere.

So I hope my experience of growing teams whilst not compromising on quality of service will be part of an exciting team for Hamlyn Williams!"
