After completing his HND in Business Studies at Bournemouth College, Mark started his construction career at SGB, supplying non-mechanical plant for over 5 years. After a change in direction, Mark launched into recruitment with Anders Glaser Wills, where he stayed for over 10 years. There he set up their trades and labour division, later moving on to sectors which included architecture, consulting engineering and facilities management. Mark was eventually promoted to team leader, managing a team of 10 consultants. Successful stints subsequently followed at Fusion People, Daniel Owen and Judd Farris, where he was promoted to Associate Director. With this solid recruitment experience behind him, the opportunity to set up FBR Construction Recruitment has offered him an exciting challenge where he is keen to really make a difference.
