Barry’s spent an impressive 10 years with DATS and his experience in recruitment spans two decades. He was first attracted to recruitment because of its competitive nature, but he also enjoys the research element involved – finding the right person for the right company provides him with lots of job satisfaction!

Nowadays, Barry says the best thing about his role is working with such a wide variety of people. He enjoys DATS for its great working culture and a really nice mix of personalities. “It’s a friendly recruitment company, technically astute and we
truly have our clients’ and candidates’ interests at heart.”

A little bit more about me...

In his spare time, Barry loves travel, beer, films and music – and not necessarily in that order. He’s travelled extensively, particularly to America where trips often involve American Football – another one of his passions. His favourite holiday destination is Vancouver in Canada, but Barry’s currently working through a challenge he’s set himself a little closer to home – to visit every European capital city over the next ten years.

What People Have to Say About Me

  • ​“I am relatively new to the industry and was looking for a recruitment agency that would support our recruitment plans. In the short time I have been working with DATS, I have found them to be responsive, supportive and not only provide some great candidates but a great service to our company. As I work for an SME we do not have the staff numbers to warrant a separate recruitment team and so for me the support I have got from Barry has been invaluable. He's provided first class candidates many of which we've selected."
