Our Team

Jonathan Cox


Cutting his teeth in the fast-paced IT contracting market of London, Jonathan’s career has taken him from the City and to Canada and back. He has worked for large corporates and well-known SME’s in the recruitment industry and has started up and ran successful teams on multiple occasions. Jonathan has a strong IT recruitment background across Project Management, Infrastructure and Development and has built a strong reputation in the commercial change and transformation market in recent years.

Outside of work, Jonathan is kept busy by his son Zackery, his 2 dogs, watching Arsenal’s continuing struggles and the odd visit to Lords.

Adam Evans


After deciding not to follow his Mothers’ dream of becoming a Primary School Teacher, Adam moved into recruitment and joined Hutchinson Jonas, playing a key role in turning the business into a leading provider of professional interims to the Food & Drink manufacturing industry. He then went on to create and run a successful desk placing Change & Transformation professionals into FMCG, Pharmaceutical and Logistics & Distribution clients. Over the past six years Adam has built an impressive network of loyal clients and candidates and is a highly respected name in this market.

Adam spends most of his spare time with his wife and 3 young children, Ethan, Felicity and Abigail. On the rare occasion there is any further free time then Golf, Entertaining, Holidays and watching sports tend to fill it (in no particular order).
