  • 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).

  • Top work Jack Lyodd & Thankyou WR logistics

  • I had hit the ceiling in my previous role and the work life balance was just not there. I came into recruitment as it offered a challenging, yet rewarding opportunity for people who are willing to work hard. I loved the idea of ‘you get out as much as you put in.’  
    The social side of the company is like nothing I know of anywhere else. I talk to my friends in numerous industries: trade, hospitality, accountancy. None have anything like we do! The office culture at WR is great! The atmosphere is always positive and relaxed, with the music playing and an open plan setup really helping this.
    Here at WR I feel completely valued from my manager and both directors which makes me want to go to work each day. Enjoying what you do cannot be understated.
    For anyone willing to work hard and put in the effort I would definitely recommend joining WR!

  • 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.
