Since joining COREcruitment in 2017, I have built strong relationships with both clients and candidates, enabling me to find the right talent with most opportunities I am managing.
Coming from a restaurant background myself, I have a good understanding of the market and trade.
Becoming a succesful recruiter, I am now heading COREcruitment's QSR & Retail sector and personally focusing on senior positions; however, I also have a strong pipeline of lower level management candidates.
My area of expertise is:
Get in touch with me should you either be looking for a new job or need assistance with your recruitment needs.
I am Sonny and I am the Operations Team Lead and Head of UK Retail here at CORE.
I have been with the business for 5 years after joining when I was 22, fresh out of a fairly short career in restaurant & bar management.
I was always pretty good and talking to people and building firm relationships along with having a strong passion for hospitality and the service industry.
CORE allowed me to take a step back away from the day-to-day operations whilst still having an impact from a HR/recruitment perspective, the mix was perfect, and I have had the best 5 years growing my career.
I came to CORE as a cocky 22-year-old with not many responsibilities, CORE has supported me in not only my professional growth but my personal growth into a responsible (I like to think so) dad of 2 young girls and I generally feel like the company has played a huge part in shaping who I am today.
I have always been allowed to be myself and express any ideas that I have even the ridiculous ones, as we grow as business there is even more opportunity for anyone thinking about joining or anyone who has recently joined to grow & develop their career not only in recruitment but also management.
Speaking to and helping a varied range of people in their careers, I also enjoy working alongside some fantastic brands and seeing them grow with the industry.
My family always had horses so growing up around them I actually wanted to be a Blacksmith.
I love electronic music and tend to spend time searching the web listening to and buying 90’s dance music and getting out to clubs when I can. I also have a young family so of course this now takes up the majority of my spare time.
