“Founder of InterSTEM Recruitment, lover of all things enterprising and passionate about technical application and innovation. Experienced within a number of sectors, including Financial Services, Pharmaceutical, Higher Education and Energy Management. I have always been passionate about connecting people and scanning the enterprise landscape for new ways to engage with businesses. With a natural ability to empathise with people and quickly understand their motivations (no matter how specific or technical), I have successfully been recruiting talent in the Cambridge market for almost 10 years within a number of sectors. My ability to listen, natural inquisitiveness and honest consultative approach has helped me stand out from the busy crowd of recruiters.
When not at work, I will most likely be keeping fit, cooking and eating great food, or finding somewhere new to explore with friends or family.”
I’ve had the pleasure working with Gerald both as a job applicant and as an employer for several marketing roles within a high tech company. Gerald has an exceptional ability to get to the very core of employer’s needs and expectations as well as to gain a very clear understanding of candidate’s ambitions, personality and skills, and to match the above just right where others may overlook the fit. Gerald is extremely driven, has excellent interpersonal skills and great problem solving abilities which makes him highly effective at his job. I’ve seen Gerald pushing forward and finding solutions in situations where others would have given up on an opportunity.
I’d had poor experiences with agencies before; being promised the world and then not hearing anything. Gerald was quick to help build up my belief in myself and the process and was confident that I’d find something in no time. He was true to his word and before I even left the office, presented me with an opportunity he felt was perfect for me. Within 24 hours I had secured the job on a contract basis. 5 years and 6 promotions later, I’m still with the Company and very grateful for Gerald’s quick response and positive attitude that helped me on my way.
Writing as a client of Gerald’s, I can say Gerald is exceptionally good at his job, a very enthusiastic, positive, and friendly person. He made sure I was always in the loop at every step, often going out of his way to help me find a new career. Unlike some other recruiters who try to push you down a certain avenue, Gerald encouraged my open and honest feedback on potential roles, quickly finding suitable roles. Within no more than two weeks Gerald got me final stage interviews and offers with companies and roles that were exactly what I was looking for – I couldn’t ask for better fits. He also negotiated on my behalf an excellent package that I was very pleased with, at a place I’m really excited to work at. There is literally no other thing I could ask of Gerald, a professional through and through, I count myself as very lucky to have his help.
Having been on both sides of the hiring process it’s rare to find someone as personable and diligent at following-up as Gerald. Gerald was with me every step of the way through the hiring process, he opened regular lines of communication to make the whole process as transparent as possible. Knowing where I was became vital as I juggled several opportunities at once and ensured that all parties were on the same page making it much easier for me to make a decision. Gerald conducts himself and the entire recruitment process with inspiring professionalism, taking the time to understand the technical software industry; what’s needed from candidates, what they offer and how those align. It was a pleasure to be a part of the process and I would highly recommend him to anyone in search of new opportunities and businesses looking for a recruitment consultant that’s responsive and offers new ideas.
Gerald found us high quality candidates to fill our staff vacancies. Gerald was extremely helpful and he was able to determine the exact type of person we were after.

Gerald contacted in June about a senior level position in a Life Science Marketing Agency where he thought my experience would be a good fit to the JD. In July I received a job offer from the hiring managers. I have been very impressed by Gerald’s knowledge, professionalism and approach to recruiting me for this job. He was never pushy, and very attentive to both parties wishes and needs. Looking back now, I think he has very good matching skills when it comes to placing new employees into hiring companies. Gerald shows a high level of knowledge and experience in his sector and his thorough preparation and research work transpires in the interviews I have had with him.
