  • About me

  • I recruit freight forwarding professionals across all modes of freight; sea, air, road and rail. I place roles from freight operators, supervisors, managers, business development managers and customs professionals, up to senior management and director level. My clients provide the logistics needs for companies and individuals all over the UK to ship their products all over the world; from Europe to Australia.

    I was born and bred in Portsmouth. I studied History at the University of Winchester achieving a 2:1. I have a real passion for modern history; particularly the Second World War.

    My main passions in life are sport, music and history. I am an avid follower of Portsmouth football club and have been a season ticket holder since I was 9. I am also a massive boxing and NFL fan. I love music and attend numerous live music events and festivals each year.

    My passion for history has seen me travel to numerous different countries to visit key historical sites and experience different cultures. I have traveled to 18 different countries and was part of a round the world sailing trip when I was 17 (my leg of the trip was Miami to Jamaica).

What people say about Jack

  • ​Jack was amazing. I'm so thankful he found me a job and I never thought I would say it but I enjoy working now. Thank you Jack!

  • Jack has gone out of his way to help me secure a new role. He kept me well informed about my application progress. I have been provisionally told I am in consideration for a job that suits my personal skill sets. I think the fact that he has put me forward for a vacancy that is appropriate; rather than simply just putting my name in the hat for the first role that comes along is a good indicator of his abilities as a consultant. He was happy to speak to me outside work hours too. Excellent.

    Ben Saunders, Customs Manager - Hertfordshire
  • Brilliant service and really helpful and polite and supportive.

    Kashif Hussain, European Transport Planner - Kent
  • I’m very happy with the service provided by WR logistics who approached me with a job role perfect for me and what I had been searching for. Throughout the application, interview and aftercare process I have been well looked after and supported. If I had any questions or concerns I knew I could contact my recruiter Jack at any time and he’d put my mind to rest. I couldn’t recommend this company any more.
