Josh Kerr

Specialised in
Consultant in a range of industries, including Aerospace & Defence, Aviation and General Manufacturing, with a particular interest in candidates who work in Controls & Applications Engineering, as well Project Managers.

Experience & background
With more than five years working in digital marketing and sports journalism, I thrive on delivering results in fast-paced environments, which naturally, drew me into recruitment. Throughout my career, I’ve built a comprehensive list of contacts that have provided me with the knowledge and confidence to work on numerous of large accounts, primarily in the sport, technology and aerospace industries.

I specialise in working closely alongside businesses to grow their brand and most importantly, deliver the talent that is going to keep them on a path towards success. Before recruitment I worked as a sports journalist, having graduated from Staffordshire University, where my personal achievements were following my beloved Reds in the Liverpool FC press box during the team’s Champions League and Premier League successes in 2019 and 2020. Beyond work, my passions, unsurprisingly are sports, which is a good icebreaker when speaking to clients and candidates.

You might be surprised to learn
Keen footballer in all aspects, very competetive in that respect.
