Our People

Lee Seymour
Senior Consultant
Lee has worked in the recruitment industry since 1997, initially as Account Manager on IBM UK’s IT contract requirements, followed by three years recruiting within the Sydney marketplace. Since joining TFPL in 2003 he has developed expertise in the records management, knowledge management and research industries. He provides recruitment solutions to a wide range of consultancies, legal and professional services and other corporate clients and prides himself on developing really close ties with his candidate base.

Lee loves food and travelling abroad but spends most of his ‘spare’ time running around after his two young daughters or a golf ball, all with varying degrees of success.

Neil Currams
Senior Consultant
Neil has been working in recruitment since 2000, with experience across a variety of sectors including Accountancy & Finance and Engineering, covering both the Kent and London markets. He is now recruiting within the following sectors: knowledge management; research and analysis; library and information management; business intelligence with a specialism in the Professional Services, Strategy Consulting and Financial Services industries.

Originally from Liverpool, Neil has been living in Kent since 1997. Neil likes to 'unwind' at the weekend by refereeing county level football, thus allowing him to debate the subtle nuances of the beautiful game with an appreciative audience. Sanity is restored by spending time with his two children and the family puppy.

Shelley King
Shelley joined the team in February 2012 after being ambushed by the legendary Sue Hill in a local book shop. She's been with us ever since - she started out keeping the back office processes running smoothly and supporting Gary and Andrew. In April 2016 she started resourcing for the KIM team.

Shelley is also a qualified dance teacher, but has so far refrained from teaching the team her moves of a lunchtime.

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.

Helen Trudgeon
Head of Marketing and Learning
Helen is responsible for all SHR, TFPL and ILX Recruitment’s marketing, events and training. A familiar face here, she has a long association with TFPL, most recently as part of our recruitment team, but it all began when we placed her with one of the Big 4 consultancies as a newly qualified librarian. More recently, Helen has moved into marketing and event management, including creating conferences at a membership organisation for professional services firms.

Outside work, when not cheering on her son from the touchline, Helen is a frequent visitor to the theatre.

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.

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.
