Meet the Picture More Recruitment Blogger

Hello all.

Well there’s no job seeking advice this week but there has certainly been a lot of activity going on over the last 2 weeks. There is a clear increase in the number of career opportunities and we hope that this trend will accelerate in September. Well done to our successful candidates!

For a lighter topic I thought it might be time to reveal myself as the Picture More blogger. In future we’ll profile other members of the team and there will be guest bloggers but for now here’s me:

Name: Martin Naylor

Age: 39

Marital status: Happily married to Sarah, a Kiwi lawyer, for 8 months

Previous industries: Corporate banking, Materials Handling, Insurance, Pharmaceuticals (I was also a DJ!).

Education: BA Honours in European Business from Nottingham Business School, a Chartered Marketer with the CIM and excited about starting the Henley MBA this month.

Foreign languages: Fluent French and reasonable Italian

Why recruitment? It’s a really positive time to get involved in rebuilding the economy and I believe we need to get the most talented people back into the key jobs to achieve that. So not only does this role allow me to practise my marketing and relationship management skills but I get to help the country by helping one person at a time; cheesy but true!

Specialist areas: Picture More has excellent credentials for recruiting IT professionals and executives. I am looking more specifically at Business Development Directors, Marketing Professionals, E-commerce experts and senior Business Analysts and Project Managers. My industry focus will be most heavily on professional services and any sector with major e-commerce activity.

Sporting achievements: Very limited but ran the California International Marathon in 4 hours 27 in 2004 and swam 50km for the British Heart Foundation during the month of November 1999.

Other interests: Skiing, marketing, mountain biking, quizzes, cricket, cooking and wine tasting.

Best holidays: The American road trips, the Peruvian trek and meeting my wife to be in Australia.

Heroes: Leonardo da Vinci, Andrew Flintoff, Clint Eastwood and Usain Bolt.

So there it is; a brief summary about me. Next time we’ll have a look at how to manage your presence on online job boards.
