Becky Gander, Recruitment Manager
As one would expect of a Recruitment Manager, Becky has loads of previous experience, mainly within the world of generic temporary recruitment. Originally worked in the care industry and so has come to look after all of us with great tenderness and sensitivity.
Hates - being disorganised, the rain, my next door neighbour (can I put that?), queue jumpers, rudeness
Super power - mind control as I think it would be fun
Etienne Robinson-Sivyer, Recruitment Consultant
Having heard how wonderful we are, Etienne joined her sister at b3 and up makes the first ever in-house siblings! Multi-talented within sales, marketing, customer service and CRM management, she also brings with her a fabulous collection of herbal teas.
Described by self – bubbly, mildly irritating and easily amused
Can’t be without – my bed, a good film or book and mashed potato

Described by self – an utterly fantastic boss
Ryan Marchant, Recruitment Consultant
Having worked for one of our clients for almost four years, Ryan jumped ship and come over to the dark side… A keen local footballer who, having lived in France for several years, is now our multi-lingual expert, thus giving b3 a truly international twist!
Would die for – a date with Ariana Grande
Hates – mushrooms, people who don’t say please or thank you

Suzy Standen-Payne, Recruitment Team Leader

Super power - to be able to read my wife’s mind!!
Victoria Holyoake, Senior Recruitment Consultant
Victoria joined us having run dental practices for a number of years before doing the travelling thing. However, having got bored sitting on a coral beach, she decided that recruitment was her true destination in life!
