Will
What did you want to be when you were at school?

Fighter pilot

How did you get into recruitment?

Fell into it like most people I think…I did a few ad sales roles before selling recruitment advertising and then it seemed like a natural progression to make more cash essentially!

What do you specialise in at MorePeople?

Operations – but what we call operations actually covers more than just typical production; Engineering, H&S, Warehouse, Logistics, CI and so on. Essentially anything that involves the actual ‘doing’ within food.

What’s been the biggest challenge you’ve faced since working at MorePeople?

I think we all face the challenge of attracting the best people to our vacancies in a candidate lead market but personally, I would probably say the early part of Covid where everything just stopped was definitely the biggest challenge.

Something on your bucket list you’re hoping to tick off soon?

I would love to swim with whales or do a parachute jump.

The best piece of advice I've ever been given is…..?

If you don’t know how to do something, say you can and figure out how later.

Cats or dogs?

Hmm dogs. Although more than one is too many.
