Role: Group Chairman, London
Jonathan has over 20 years of experience within the recruitment industry. Jonathan started his career at a leading international STEM specialist recruiter, where through his impressive results and natural leadership, he quickly climbed the ladder to become the UK and European Sales Director.
Following his success, Jonathan founded Gravitas in 2010 alongside Alex Naylor and Daniel Wallis, opening offices in Hong Kong, Leeds and London. Building on over a decade of working together, the trio wanted to create a specialist recruitment firm that would offer an unrivalled service to clients and candidates within Technology and Insurance.
Jonathan's expertise and passion for the sector have been the driving force behind the phenomenal journey Gravitas is on, and the continued success and expansion of the company. In July 2023, Jonathan became Group Chairman, where he sits on both the IC Board and group boards, ensuring a seamless alignment of strategic objectives.
Jonathan’s love for recruitment comes from having a direct positive impact upon an individual’s career, or helping to shape the direction of an organisation that they join. He believes that recruitment is one of the few careers that holds a linear correlation to your own desire, work ethic and ambition.
Outside of work - Jonathan is country boy at heart - and will most likely be found standing in a river or woodland. He also likes to travel, and a spot of fine dining, but most of all he loves spending time with family and friends.
