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.

Wendy Gannon
Senior Recruitment Consultant

Wendy is one of the most vibrant and outgoing people you will speak to in the recruitment industry. She is a real people’s person and with this builds great relationships with clients. Building relationships with new and existing clients is what has got here to this point today. It has allowed her to bill circa £500,000 in her best year whilst also managing a specialist team of recruiters within her sector. This saw the team bill well in to the £1 million mark.

Originally coming from the Insurance & Risk sector, Wendy saw huge potential for a switch to the IT sector given her clientele base. Wendy has proven time and time again she is a big biller and she now combines both the IT and Insurance & Risk sector together. Something very unique that I’m sure will prove to be a big success.
