Jon Shepherd

Consultant – North West Region

“I’m an experienced leader in education who has recruited and interviewed for in-house secondary school vacancies across all departments, including middle leadership, teaching and business-support staff. 

“Shortly before joining Ryder Reid, I wrote tenders and government funding applications for businesses in adult education and apprenticeships, transport and logistics, renewable energy and eco-construction, fire safety and healthcare.

“I have also been central to the mentoring of trainee secondary school teachers from local universities for the past 10 years. And, recently I oversaw a project for a Liverpool-based charity that supported ex-offenders and disadvantaged young people into full-time employment through the government’s Kickstart scheme. 

“Here at Ryder Reid, I’m responsible for developing our client base in the North West, as well as building a candidate database for new and existing clients. 

“Ryder Reid’s approach to recruitment is unique. Our focus is on our values, vision and ‘People First Recruitment’ commitment. This isn’t just a sound bite – it’s lived out each day through our fantastic team’s work. It’s embedded into staff-induction and reinforced continually by our leadership team and our systems and processes. 

“I love the energy and excitement of my job, as well as the camaraderie among our dynamic team”

“As a child, what did I want to be when I grew up? A professional footballer… But, more realistically, I just wanted to be happy.”
