Tony Jones

Senior Recruiter

[email protected] | 01481 731771

Qualifications
REC Certificate in Recruitment Practice. Advanced Interviewer

Tony is a Senior Recruiter, dealing predominantly with senior level candidates, and is also Head of Business Development, managing external operations and developing new areas of business for Source. He was a founding member of the team when the company launched in 2005.

Tony has a wealth of experience in marketing, business development and relationship management following several years working within the finance industry across Guernsey, Jersey and the Isle of Man.

He has a deep understanding of all the industries that Source works with and believes that understanding the needs of the candidate is more important than selling an industry.

He particularly enjoys the challenge of having exclusivity to fill a tricky placement; working closely with the HR department and directors, undertaking research and conducting a full search exercise before presenting a shortlist of candidates and going through the interview process.

He thoroughly enjoys seeing his candidates become successful and working closely with them throughout their careers. Many of the candidates he’s seen rise through the ranks have become clients he now recruits for.

Tony’s favourite hobby is hanging out with his 11-year-old son but wine, Lego, cooking and squash rank pretty highly in the mix. He also loves the beach and embracing outdoor life in Guernsey.

Lesser-known fact

Tony once came second in the local Dance Floor Challenge, although he still thinks he was robbed of first place!

Olivia loves her varied role here at Source and enjoys meeting the many remarkable individuals looking for a new and exciting chapter in their professional careers. She believes that having a true understanding of her candidates is vital in guiding them into roles and sectors that are a complementary match.

A particular Source career highlight for Olivia was when she placed her husband in his happy role!

Outside of work, Olivia is often found pottering around in her garden, growing (and sampling) her own fruit and veg.

Steve Duckworth

As a Senior Recruiter, Steve deals predominantly with candidates seeking permanent opportunities.

The local network he’s built up also gives him a unique understanding of the culture inside many on-island finance companies, helping him to achieve a good match for both candidate and client.

He enjoys selling all industries to candidates but finds working with career-change candidates particularly rewarding, thanks to the challenge they present.

One of Steve’s favourite things about working in recruitment is the satisfaction he receives from placing a candidate, knowing he’s changed someone’s life for the better.

Steve is a big lover of the outdoors and can often be found on his time off enjoying a coastal walk with his four dogs, indulging in a beach day, cycling or exploring the local west-coast watering holes.

She particularly enjoys promoting those industries that are shaping Guernsey’s future and providing greater diversity to the ‘traditional’ roles we see on the island.
