ALEX DAWSON

RECRUITMENT DIRECTOR

Having graduated with a BA Hons degree in behavioural science, Alex started his career in recruitment in 1998 and worked for a few corporate recruitment companies in London, supporting investment banks and hedge funds for 8 years.
 
He then set up and ran his own recruitment company and spent 6 years working with some of the largest brand name companies as well as start-ups and SME’s. He was tempted back into agency recruitment with an offer from a private equity firm to run the recruitment of an international Oil & Gas consultancy and this role took him all over the world, from Texas to Brisbane, via Singapore and Perth, WA.
 
Having written a fictional thriller, and determined to be the next Dan Brown, Alex moved out to Oxfordshire in the hope of becoming a full-time writer. Alas, the book did not trouble the New York Times best-seller list and although it was published on Amazon, his passion for writing became a hobby rather than a vocation.
 
In 2015, he joined Plus One Personnel and took on the responsibility of managing all the recruitment services provided from our offices in Oxfordshire and Warwickshire. With a passion for training and developing Recruiters, Alex gains enormous satisfaction from seeing our staff epitomise our core values whilst providing professional and accurate recruitment services to our clients.
 
Outside of work, Alex enjoys cooking, playing golf and watching rugby and cricket. He also revels in his role as the devilish quiz master during our annual summer staff bash.
