Lawrie Brennan

Senior Recruiter - Design

5 years into recruitment across a couple of industries and for sure this is the absolute best! Getting to work in an industry that is a personal hobby is a bit of pleasure and its always exciting to talk about heros from games you played as child, find the excitement of hearing new games coming out but most of all, helping designers find their next career move. A Sheffield born and bred lad, who is a little bit too loud an energetic and slightly too precious about my beard….
