Get to know Tim a bit more...
What did you want to be when you were at school?

A fireman, no idea why probably just the Fireman Sam influence on the TV as a child. A small problem in that I'm terrified of heights!

How did you get into recruitment?

I was looking for a role where I could be connected to the industry but indirectly. This way I get to talk to a wide range of people all day about agriculture.

What do you specialise in at MorePeople?

I focus on rural professionals. Think rural surveyors, estate management, wayleave offices, farm business consultants.

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

Organising diaries for everyone. They're moving targets and by the very nature I work with busy people.

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

I don’t know about soon but run the UTMB, it’s a 48hr trail running race around Mont Blanc. I have a 24hr run this summer and I'm excited and scared at the same time, I’m interested to see how far I can run.

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

Just keep going, it think this applies in all walks of life.

Cats or dogs?

Without question dogs, they're loyal, loving, and always put a smile on your face, what more do you want. I have a German Short Haired Pointer named Wilma, who occasionally joins me on a park run!
