A bit about Ben

Ben our Technical Director and Co-Founder, is an adventurer who loves nothing more than driving half way around the world in a clapped out banger. He is a skier not a snow boarder, actually he should live in the North Pole as we have never met anyone who loves the snow as much as him. He is obsessed with all forms of technology, never happier than when working out how to connect his phone to a light bulb! Ben has over 15 years experience in Technology, as a PHP Developer creating successful web applications and SaaS products. Outside of recruitment, Ben has worked as a Project Manager, was the Operations Director in an SME and founded his own SaaS start-up.

I was recruited through Ben to my role at Saffron Digital back in early 2012. From the outset his style was professional and to the point. He understands the information that potential hires need at different stages in the process and appreciates that time is precious (therefore not asking irrelevant questions or touting for other leads like so many agents seem to do!). Ben is a man of integrity and that means a lot. It was a pleasure working with him then and that continues now in my new role as Team Manager (being that I'm now the one seeking candidates). Consistently Opilio and Ben deliver candidates of a higher calibre than their competitors - my belief is that this is because Ben and his colleagues spend more time ensuring that people are right before putting them forward for roles.

Quintin Willison • Candidate

I found Ben to be extremely personable and astute regarding the recruitment process. He asked detailed questions and demonstrated a clear understanding of the answers I provided. It turned out that this was a worthwhile process as I am now working for the company he was recruiting for. Thanks Ben!!

Anwar El Bizanti • Candidate

On a role with quite specific requirements, Ben took the time to understand the nuances of our search, to figure out those important details which lie beyond the job spec. The people he put forward were relevant, and I could openly air any concerns in the knowledge that he genuinely took them on board. Sometimes he would (politely!) debate his candidate’s strengths and overcome my concerns, and if they were valid he incorporated the details into future searches. I would happily recommend Ben and his team and look forward to working with them on future roles
