Ashley graduated from Leeds Metropolitan University in 2010 with a degree in Law.
Later that year he was targeted by Langley Scott and taken on as a Researcher/Junior Consultant, it was here of course that Ashley would encounter a young Luke Fowler for the first time. He left Langley Scott 18 months later in search of the next step.
In 2011 Ashley began working for The Gravitas Recruitment Group as a consultant dedicated to the IT arena. This is where he would forge his name as a specialist .Net recruiter. He displayed consistency and delivered impressive billings year on year.
His rapid progression within such a specialist field never escaped the attention of a previous acquaintance and in 2013 Ashley left the business to explore an opportunity with TRC Group.
In need of trusted and experienced consultants to lay the foundations for his business, Ashley became the first employee for The Recruitment Crowd and in 2014 he became a Director of the company with shares in the business.
