I setup hatch in 2016 because I believe that there is room in the market for a recruitment business which focuses on providing an honest and open service to candidates and clients alike. Where understanding an individuals job search or a businesses requirements is the number one concern. After 12 years working for both multi-national consultancies and smaller niche specialists, running my own business has been a long term goal which I can now deliver. Whether it is at Director level or as an Executive, hatch's aim is to provide you with the best possible service, keep you informed and ensure that your job search is as stress free as it can be.   

I have 2 young children so most of my time outside is spent playing with them but where possible I enjoy cooking (not always well but I always enjoy it), watching sport and getting out and about generally. If you want to have a conversation about your job search or the general job market then please give me a call and find out how I can help you find the next role.

I have been a client of Patrick's since late 2013 and cannot recommend his services highly enough. I have significant experience as a recruitment consultant, I have engaged several recruitment agencies as a hiring manager and in 2013 I found myself in the job market, meaning I have experience from all positions within the cycle. Therefore, I really understand what makes an excellent recruitment consultant and I would without hesitation place Patrick in that category. Patrick truly takes the time to understand exactly where your skills lie, where you want your career to go and gives advice and recommendations accordingly. Any opportunity he has brought to my attention has always matched my identifiers, and more importantly (and touching on an area which is all too often overlooked) he gives full, honest and timely feedback. It is for all of these reasons that when I was seeking a new role in 2016 Patrick was the only consultant I approached despite having a network of nearly 15 agents. If ever I find myself looking to hire staff, he would also be my first and only phone call, and I thank him for all of his efforts to date.

Pat has an aptitude for understanding his clients needs and this makes him stand out from thousands of recruiters. He pays close attention to what you are looking for in a role yet at the same time completely understands and respects the employers requirements. In other words, he doesn’t just find you any old job, he uses his vast experience to match up your values, character and skillset with the right employer. A very approachable recruiter with lots of experience. If you are looking for that perfect job, call Pat.
