We are as proud of how we started in the business, as we are with the work we are doing today. Initially we concentrated on Advertised Recruitment and unequivocally had the best portfolio of creative advertising in our sector.

David set up Southgate Consulting in 1999 having spent 13 years previously in Executive Search both within Automotive and blue chip FMCG sectors. An expert recruiter, the automotive sector is his passion and since the launch date of Southgate Consulting the business has striven to offer the very best client and candidate service levels. With an impressive client portfolio, vacancy fulfilment has covered all disciplines from Managing Director level downwards.

Southgate Consulting has a reputation of offering fair and consultative advice based on knowledge gained from working on assignments in every facet of the industry, but David has always kept the business small and very customer focussed enabling a truly personal customer service. Southgate Consulting is proud to offer industry leading placement guarantees and this helps us to maintain long business relationships with our clients and candidates many of whom still work with us today.

When not running Southgate Consulting, David enjoys family time with his wife, three sons and daughter, cycling, running, playing the piano, walking our Labradors, anything motoring related and travel.
