The operations team

Chris Jones
Managing Director
Chris is the Managing Director of Sue Hill, TFPL and Progility Recruitment and has worked in recruitment since 1999. He spent 10 years working within a FTSE 250 global consultancy, placing senior candidates across a broad spectrum of sectors and locations. He joined Progility PLC in June 2014 to lead the integration of Sue Hill and TFPL and to launch ILX Recruitment as a specialist recruiter within project and programme management.

Outside of work when he isn’t spending time with his family, Chris can be found on a rugby pitch – or injured at the side of one.

Gemma Wood
Marketing Manager
Gemma has been part of Sue Hill Recruitment since 2011 and is responsible for coordinating all SHR, TFPL and ILX Recruitment’s marketing and events. She’s been working in PR and marketing since graduating from her MA in 2006, starting out at a boutique PR agency specialising in architecture, regeneration and property clients. She has recently completed her Chartered Institute of Marketing Postgraduate Diploma in Professional Marketing.

Outside the office, Gemma likes doing difficult things. She is an occasional marathon runner and is currently learning modern Greek. She’s also a bit of a cricket geek.

Gary Boorman
Company Accountant
Gary has been an integral part of the team since 2006. He brings valuable expertise to the team with his background in accounting in the public sector, retail and recruitment firms. He is kept on his toes with ever-changing legislation and ensuring his payroll team has everything running smoothly. He is currently working on the integration of Sue Hill, TFPL and ILX Recruitment accounts to provide a complete finance function for the recruitment business.

In his spare time he enjoys overseas travel, with recent visits to Europe and beyond.

Tina McGarvey
Office and IT Manager
Tina relishes a challenge and enjoys helping her colleagues, which is fortunate as she has been fixing things and handling IT woes for the recruitment teams since 2006.

In her spare time, Tina enjoys socialising with friends and impulse shopping.

Andrew Buchanan
Payroll Manager
Andrew is our payroll manager, also covering invoicing and credit control for both SHR, TFPL and ILX Recruitment.

He is a keen Liverpool fan and enjoys watching them play, from time to time going to a live game. When they are doing well, that keeps him happy.
