Prior to finding a passion for recruitment, Ben pursued a successful career in the voucher market, responsible for establishing Groupon in Oxfordshire as well as working for popular local radio station JACKfm.
In 2014, Ben’s entrepreneurial spirit led him to establish Thompson & Terry Recruitment where he is responsible for managing the current team and overseeing client services, as well as focusing on business growth and exploring new markets.
Additionally, Ben is passionate about networking on both a local and national level. Following a successful spell with global networking group, BNI, where he is impressively the most awarded member to date (beating 232,999 other members!) Ben has recently established his own networking group, The Oxford Recruiters Network. The group is designed to give Oxfordshire-based recruiters a space in which to discuss current developments, difficulties and successes within the Oxford employment market and he is always keen to speak to recruiters looking to join the group.
Outside of recruitment Ben is an avid sports fan, having represented Henley, Newbury and Saracens playing rugby as well as religiously supporting the Oxford United football team. Additionally, Ben often participates in local football tournaments as a part of the ‘Thompson & Terry’ and ‘Dilly United’ 5-a-side football teams. As well as this, Ben enjoys volunteering as a Corporate Ambassador for Oxfordshire-based children’s charity SeeSaw and spending time with his wife, Rebecca.
