Owens reflection on the last 11 years:

"The highlights of the last 11 years have been building a stable business that offers a safe place to work and striving to be an employer of choice through our additional benefits and workplace culture. I have learned to empower people through trust; give people guidance and allow them to put their own stamp on things. As a CEO you cannot do everything - trust is paramount. My ethos as a CEO is being brutally honest and respectful whilst giving everyone the opportunity to grow and develop. We have built ODC on our values; Honesty, Integrity, Respect, Environmentally focused, Diversity and inclusion."

Our Directors comments on the last 11 years:

James Beattie (Operations Director)

"What’s it like to work at Owen Daniels? I think the best way to describe it is ‘Better every year’. At the core of Owen Daniels we are a business which has always adapted to the constant changes around us socially and economically. We continue to deliver world-class recruitment services, but each year we get that bit better, whether it’s collaborating, communicating or just our general culture. There continue to be opportunities, and we’re always looking at ways to improve life at Owen Daniels and career opportunities for our staff. It’s a place you can be autonomous in your work and just keep developing."

Matt Bowman (Business Solutions Director)  

"Working at Owen Daniels Consultancy is very fulfilling. We have grown and evolved as a business over the last 11 years and it is great to reflect on the advances we have made in a fast paced recruitment environment. Having experienced lots of external events whilst working for ODC, such as Brexit and a global pandemic, I feel like it is a testament to the core values of the business and the emphasis we have on staff development/culture as to why we are in a strong place coming into the 12th year of business. "

Stuart Kerr (Recruitment Director)

"Owen began the Owen Daniels Consultancy journey 11 years ago, with the ambition to set up a business which focussed on offering exceptional service to its clients, whilst also becoming an employer of choice. It has been a privilege to be part of this over the last 7 years’ and working at Owen Daniels has personally offered me huge amounts of learning and development, working very closely with Owen over this period of time. Together as a team, we have continually achieved the objectives initially set out, and Owen has been instrumental in continually pushing the business to be the best it can be, internally and externally."
