  • London and South East Jobs Business Manager ATA Recruitment
    Chris O’Connor
    Head of Projects

    Chris O’Connor
    Chris joined ATA in February 2005, spending over 9 years working from the Derby office leading the rail, energy and construction divisions at various stages during this period.

    Having moved to head up ATA’s South East operation based in central London in September 2014, Chris is currently responsible for ATA’s sales and business development strategy for the region encompassing engineering, manufacturing and construction related recruitment. Clients range from SMEs through to national construction contractors and international OEMs.

    Working closely with the South East region’s discipline managers and Senior Sales team members, Chris ensures that ATA is positioned and able to deliver to clients headcount requirements for major projects and critical hires.

    With most of his time outside of work being taken up with his 2 young children, the excitement of jumping out of planes, off bridges and out of cable cars is consigned to his younger years! Nowadays a good round of golf, a pint or a decent glass of wine is as extreme as it gets!
