Martyn got off to a flying start with VIQU when he joined our Southampton team in March 2019. Martyn’s hungry, hard-working attitude mixed with his cool as a cucumber approach had an immediate impact on our team, clients and candidates. Before going into recruitment, Martyn worked in direct B2C sales, before going into retail management and then finally finding his ideal career in recruitment. Recruitment combines Martyn’s 2 favourite work elements – people and sales! He enjoys building relationships and gets a big kick out of networking and learning more about how other businesses work.

In his spare time, Martyn regularly runs marathons – he’s due to run the Brighton marathon for the 2nd time in April 2020! When he’s not watching the calories, Martyn loves baking and often get roped into making birthday cakes for other family members!

Getting a little deeper…

  • Favourite thing about your team?

  • The synergy. We work very well together and are almost always on the same page when it comes to work practices.

  • If you weren’t in recruitment, you’d be…?

  • I would be an endurance athlete. I have run many long distance events and love the fact that you can’t buy the medals, they must be earned.

  • Fun fact no one knows about you?

  • I am quite good at baking and like to make big extravagant cakes as a hobby. It takes hours but it means I can shut myself away and make something other people can enjoy. It's not something anyone expects from me!
