Hi, I’m Stephen. I’ve worked in Creative Recruitment since 2016, having previously worked in industries ranging from banking to bar work. I love helping talented candidates in the creative, digital, PR, and marketing industries find their dream roles in the North West.
Outside of work, I’m into travel, football, music, box-sets and films, and food and drink. I love exploring new places and finding new bars and restaurants in Manchester and further afield, with craft beer to drink and anything Asian to eat. I’m into a wide range of music, everything from Motown to Madchester and loads in between. Football wise, I support Man United and Republic of Ireland, so I’ve not had much to shout about recently!
I’m really enjoying working at an agency as well-established within the industry as Become, and helping to match some of the region’s top marketing, PR, and digital talent with the best businesses around!
