The ON:iT Recruitment Team

We came together to bring a more genuine, people-focused approach to IT recruitment. Meet our team to discover why our clients choose us.

Rich Young

Managing Director

My passion is business: during my ten years in recruitment, I’ve always loved getting to know the industries and organisations I’ve supported. Having worked in the public sector, oil and gas, property and construction, I was drawn to IT recruitment because the sector’s seemingly limitless potential excited me, especially information security.

I’ve experienced the various ways in which agencies approach recruitment; for me, the best results come through long-term partnerships, not shortcuts. I also believe that, to keep clients happy, you need to create an environment that people want to work for. Through ON:iT, I wanted to lay down a blueprint for delivering a simple, honest service.

When I’m not at work, I like getting out and about, spending time with Missy my bulldog – although you can often find her at our office, too! – or catching up with friends over a few drinks in town. These days I spend quite a bit of time in the city, but I do love escaping back home to the countryside for a bit of clay pigeon shooting when I can. For my sins I also like keeping up to date with the ups (and downs) of my team Manchester United.

Chris Bailey

Sales Director

My passion is building and maintaining relationships. Since joining recruitment back in 2011, I’ve seen how different companies approach this. I started in a medium-sized firm, gaining experience in IT support and infrastructure, before moving into a large organisation where I had the freedom to hone my capacity to cater to clients’ needs.

Over the years, I’ve come to appreciate that different approaches work for different people. Through ON:iT, I wanted to take the best bits of recruitment, while empowering our staff to express themselves and deal genuinely with our clients. I’m responsible for growing and managing the team, so culture is important to me.

When I’m not meeting clients or in the office, you can find me spending time with family or cheering from the sidelines at sports games. I’m a huge fan of both ice hockey and football; we sponsor players for Manchester Storm and Stockport County, so I try to get to as many matches as I can.

Aled Johnson

Executive Director

My passion is helping clients and candidates find the perfect fit for their role or skillset. I quickly realised this on joining recruitment back in 2008, and have spent the past ten years developing my expertise on the delivery side. Most of this has centred around IT recruitment, which has enabled me to develop a broad understanding of technology, with a focus on infrastructure and business intelligence.

I really get a buzz out of doing a good job for a client, and working with them again on future vacancies, no matter how complex. That’s what I love about ON:iT Recruitment: while we each have specialisms, our consultants can recruit contractors and permanent staff across the board, meaning we can work as an extension of our clients’ businesses.

Outside of work, I spend a lot of time with my family – especially my wife and two cats. I like to stay active through sport, mainly Football, Bouldering and Running. I also enjoy travelling the world and exploring new places, with recent trips to Hong Kong, Philippines and Egypt
