Team Bio's

Adrian Berridge

Adrian is a lover of the arts -predominantly digital recruitment and boxing. Most lunchtimes you’ll find him in the gym, punching bags, lifting weights and more recently throwing around kettle-bells, whatever they are. On a slightly more serious note, when it comes to web technology Adrian knows his stuff and it’s his unfussy, consultative approach, coupled with an uncanny knack of unearthing hard to reach candidates that has earned him a fantastic reputation in the field.

Ben Mellows

Ben is our Regional Director and heads up the London office. You’ll currently find him immersed in building the hottest digital recruitment team to set foot in London, all based around three key qualities - energy, accuracy and decent tea-making. When not in the office/sometimes in the office, anything round in shape is usually being hit or kicked and he still harbours dreams of one day becoming a footballer.

James Goddard

James is Practice Manager at Monarch Digital and has 6 years of experience in recruiting across permanent and contract markets in the Digital space. James is currently focused on building the practice’s freelance and contract capability and will be able to get you the freelancer you need for the budget that you have, arms will be bent, biros broken.
When he’s not curled up in a stress ball compulsively drinking coffee he enjoys fixing last week’s DIY disaster at a building site that is apparently his house, or escaping it by fleeing to Europe

Sarah Hayward

Sarah is our wizard (wizardress… wizard in a dress?) of all things technical. She’s been recruiting in technology in one form or another for over 16 years and has an intuitive understanding of what makes the industry tick. If you need to source someone good, fast, you want to talk to her.
When she’s not discussing the merits of Zend versus Symfony or C# over F#, she’s rooting around Antique markets in the Cotswolds, foregoing sleep for a week to produce 100 precision baked cupcakes or dragging her husband on another holiday.

Simon Needle

Simon has over 3 years’ experience managing important accounts for Monarch Digital and heads up the key account team. He’s calm in situations that would normally reduce a recruiter to tears and will always approach an impossible brief with a cheerful and positive attitude.
If you need to hire a volume of applicants quickly in a competitive market, or just want some consultative and considered advice, he will be happy for you to buy him a coffee. In his free time he likes avoiding city dwellers, golfing badly and competing and injuring himself in a variety of violent sports.
