Meet the Team

Daniel Weeks
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. | |

Arron Fray
Recruitment Manager

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.

Fergus Walsh
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.

Jamie Philpot
UX/UI Design Specialist

Jamie is an ex-professional footballer turned recruiter and the transition across to become a specialist recruiter, was an easy one. The competition, working environment and so on all resemble his time as a professional footballer.

Having won some major projects, he has now built some good contacts within the market, along with building his own personal brand and name.

He is still up and coming but, Jamie will prove to be one of the top recruiters in his field over the next 12/18 months, so watch this space. Jamie’s main hobby is of course football, but he does love a night out with friends and family too.
