Meet the Team
IT Managing Director
Daniel comes from an experienced recruitment background spanning over 17 years in the IT market. The last 10 have been spent running recruitment companies across different sectors, building teams and training recruiters to be the best they can in order to provide a high quality of service across both the permanent and contract market.
Starting out as a resourcer back in 2002, Daniel quickly climbed the ladder and was promoted several times from a trainee recruiter right through to a Recruitment Manager. It was then he decided to go it alone and start his own recruitment agency back in 2011.
This turned in to a great success and since then has gone on to open four more agencies, one of which is Shaw Daniels Solutions (SDS).
Having built so many friends and contacts along the way SDS and his group of companies to date, are expanding year on year, achieving new heights, new targets and more importantly, growing not just the SDS name, but the whole group of companies.

He takes an in-depth, highly pragmatic approach to both candidates and clients and challenges himself to provide stellar service to ensure everyone is highly satisfied with the outcome.
Jack then joined Shaw Daniels Solutions in February 2018 where he immediately made a big impact, overachieving his firsts years targets by some way.
Having now been with SDS for nearly 3 years Jack has gone on to become a Senior IT Recruitment Specialist within his field taken on specialist vacancies within the infrastructure arena, no matter what level. Now one of the most recognised IT Recruitment Specialists in his discipline, working with some of the UK’s & Europe’s largest accounts.
A Senior Specialist IT Recruiter, turned Recruitment Manager, with over 9 years’ experience in the game. Recruitment was never on the agenda for Arron, coming from a very footballing focused background, rising through the ranks from the youth team at Crystal Palace between 2003-2005, then moving his senior career to the Crystal Palace first team throughout the years of 2005-2008 playing against the likes of Inter Milan. Several injuries later took its toll and Arron’s footballing career was unfortunately over.
Undecided about where his career would take him, knowing he needed to stay within a competitive environment and always strive to be the best, he fell into recruitment and has never looked back.
Applying the same methods and discipline to recruitment as he had when playing professional football, he found he was able to really make a difference and become a top recruiter within the market. Jump forward 9 years, Arron is now a well-respected senior IT Recruiter/Manager who brings a wealth of experience and talent to an already existing team at SDS, having outperformed his peers in current roles, smashing targets and overachieving those targets on numerous occasions.

Senior IT Recruitment Specialist
A Senior Recruitment Specialist, who within 4 years has built his market and is well known for his understanding around Python and Data. Go back 4 years and Fergus was new to the recruitment world, but he knew it was the path he wanted to take.
His first 3 years saw him covering the contract market and his 4th year was as a duel recruiter covering both the contract and permanent markets. Not only can he work a duel desk, but he can also cover UK wide along with most of Europe.
A very talented, sociable individual, with the drive, hunger and determination to survive in the recruitment world. An extra additional bonus you get with Fergus…. He genuinely has a passion for Python and data, allowing him to fully understand his markets. No wonder he was the 2019 top biller. He has also had a helping hand in sponsoring the EuroPython 2019 in Basel. Of a weekend your find Fergus on the town with friends and family, if he’s not watching football. Actually your more than likely find him doing both.
One of the newest recruits welcomes Ninnetta to the SDS team as a Junior Associate.

Jessica is the latest Junior Associate to join the SDS team. Another recent graduate but this time within Biomedical Science, Jess finished her degree and quickly decided a life in science was not going to be the working environment she desired. Jess is money hungry, career driven and very much a people’s person. Going to market and seeing where she would be best placed, it became very apparent that the world of recruitment could offer her all those things. Jessica now joins the SDS team supporting several senior and principal recruitment consultants, working the IT Recruitment market across different verticals, such as IT Infrastructure and Software Engineering, on a dual desk.
Outside of work, Jess loves to travel, but only short stints at a time, as her first love is her puppy. On a more regular basis though, you will find her with friends and family or at the gym
