Team - CMD Recruitment : CMD Recruitment


Let us introduce ourselves

CMD Recruitment would like to introduce ourselves and give you a head start in getting to know us. We’re a fun, dynamic team of professionals; here to assist you in your recruitment needs.

Dan Barfoot

Operations Manager

Dan as the Operations Manager is key to driving the business forward and has helped the team grow over the 10 years he has been with the business.

Dan likes to think that he’s the funny man of all 3 offices, and always open to a silly office bet or prank. Dan is integral to the business and covers a wide range of functions to ensure that all the cogs turn. A keen motorcycle racer but he spends more time on falling off than going round we hear.

Jose Garcia-Brennan

Senior Recruitment Consultant

Jose is one of the longest serving members of the team and a proven recruiter. He enjoys building long term relationships with clients and gains repeat business by  continued success.

He has a wealth of experience with all levels of commercial and technical recruitment from his time in London, Surrey, Bath and Wiltshire.

Jose is an avid West Ham Utd fan and is very passionate about his music.

Laura Westall

Senior Recruitment Consultant

Laura is an ambitious recruiter who has a methodical and efficient approach to recruitment. Specialising within Commercial & Education Recruitment, there is no job too small or too big for her to tackle. With a fresh outlook and her bubbly personality, Laura’s supportive nature means her duties are often extended to PA, team training, event organising and many others. When Laura’s not working she’s fulfilling her love for dance with a local company

Linda Keeney

Industrial Manager

Linda is an established Senior Consultant and has been working within the industry for over 8 years. She is an extremely adaptable and self-motivated sales professional, with excellent relationship building and negotiation skills. With a passion for business development, Linda has successfully assisted in building the current Industrial desk, during her time with CMD. Along with her passion for the fast paced Industrial division, Linda is also a very competent recruiter in many sectors of business, at all levels. She has a gregarious attitude and has been told, a very persuasive nature. Renowned for her dry humour and sarcastic wit, Linda enjoys the Theatre, singing and her most recent love of learning to Kickbox.

Hannah Chiffers

Commercial Temps Consultant

Hannah joined CMD 3 years ago and has taken our temps desk from strength to strength, as she is loved by clients and with her warm nature candidate’s benefit from her strong work ethic.

Hannah is the shopaholic of CMD and is well renowned for creating wish lists around birthdays and Christmas for her the team. Hannah runs our commercial temps so is always on the ball. Hannah also enjoys a good team challenge

Jenni Reynolds

Accounts Manager

Jenni started with CMD over 8 years ago and is our Rachel Riley of the Finance team, ensuring that everyone is paid and invoiced on time.

Jenni is a keen runner and forever pushing herself to compete in extreme fitness challenges.

Laura Skinner

Recruitment Consultant

Laura came to us having worked as a Specialist Recruiter for a National recruiter and brings value to the team from this experience.

Laura is the typical blonde of the office, happy go lucky with a great sense of humour but we know that sometimes she googles the answers to jokes. Laura also loves nothing more than a trip to Costa on her regular client visits.

Andrea Young


Andrea supports the industrial team on a part time basis and having previously worked as a full time Industrial consultant, she’s a great asset when bookings are busy. Andrea is kept busy by her 2 children and dogs but still finds time to hammer the running machine.

Lisa Lane

Accounts Assistant

Lisa is the other half of our accounts team and supports Jenni with the day to day challenges given to her. Lisa always has a drawer of goodies/sweeties which comes in handy when she finishes at 3pm. Lisa also loves socialising, dying her hair and spending time with her family.

Sarah Webb

Recruitment Consultant

Sarah joined the team after working for a national recruitment team but quickly made the transition to a more independent based role. She has a love for dogs and brings a quick wit and great sense of humour to the team. A great asset to the team and can often find a needle in a haystack candidate.

Lucy Icke


Lucy joined us having relocated from the North East where she had worked in an industrial desk capacity and supports the team with finding key candidates for difficult roles. With a quick witted nature and a loving for ‘parmos’. She enjoys a good night out, going on holiday and to festivals with the girls.

Nicole Lennards

Commerical Temps Consultant

Nicole is a recent new addition and being the shortest member of the team is known for wearing some serious heels. She brings over 5 years of experience to the team from a commercial temps background and we would certainly say she is the hostess with the mostess, as is extremely thorough with a fun loving personality.

Jess Manterfield

Commercial Consultant

Jess came to us having worked locally as a resourcer and since joining the team has quite simply blossomed. She is quite the party animal and loves nothing more than breaking out the wellies and camping gear, and enjoying a good festival.

Suzi Dean

Recruitment Consultant

Suzi is the muscles of the team and the newest member to our industrial team. As a former personal trainer she’s often heard advising the Operation’s Manager on workouts, diet etc. but we don’t think its working.
