Gregg Swan

Head of Manufacturing Recruitment

Gregg joins us with a vast wealth of experience recruiting within manufacturing and has been successfully placing candidates at all levels within this sector for over twenty years. His approach is personable and his focus is putting the right people in front of his client EVERY time.

Gregg has that invaluable commodity that can be missing at times in the recruitment industry - he genuinely cares about both the candidate and the client and makes a real effort to understand his client’s business and what is essential for the candidates he provides, to be successful.

What do you enjoy most about working within the manufacturing industry?
I fell into manufacturing recruitment purely by accident and have loved it ever since. I love having the opportunity to make a real positive difference to a business. Being able to find the perfect candidate and see them flourish is very satisfying indeed. I also enjoy seeing how a range of products are actually made. Today’s technology is breath-taking and seeing that implemented is so impressive.

Working at Alexander Steele Recruitment gives me…
a chance to work with like minded people who have a great work ethic but also know how to have fun and look out for each other. Working in a business that concentrates 100% on manufacturing also means that there’s always a great candidate being recommended to you by a colleague.

At the weekend I like to…
do whatever my wife and two young daughters tell me, there’s also a lot of dog walking involved! I love cooking, music, socialising with friends, hitting (off target) the odd golf ball and have been teaching myself the piano for the last couple of years.

The best song to get me ready for the work day is…
almost impossible to pin down. My music interests include The Beatles, Bowie, Jess Glynne, Prince, Fleet Foxes, Basement Jaxx, Daft Punk, Ludovico Einaudi, Simple Minds, Gorillaz, Tchaikovsky……………
