Meet Our Team

Chris Jackson

Founding Director

Chris has worked in the technical recruitment market since he was 21 (and has gone through a huge amount of good and tough times economically). He previously worked with a company called Computer People and worked his way up to a director level. 

After 13 years of service, he decided it was the right time to commence the Understanding Recruitment Group project and build an organization based on high performance, quality, and values. His role as CEO is to ensure that the Group’s brands are developing, growing, and maximizing suitable opportunities within the market while maintaining our strong inherent values. He is proud to know the business and industry inside out and adds good value to clients on their staffing needs and how the Understanding Recruitment Group can support them across all our specialisms. 

There are many aspects of his role he enjoys; however, if he had to pick one, it would be all staff promotions as he knows the hard work that it takes and how much it means to everyone! 

A little-known fact about Chris is that he has run the Medoc wine marathon (and would highly recommend it!).
