After telling you a bit about why Recruital was set up in our first post, it seemed only fitting to introduce you to our wonderful team of professionals next. So without further a do, this is the Recruital team.


David Chicken, Managing Director

David is the Managing Director, and founder of Recruital. He has over 20 years experience in the IT industry. David started his career as a Project Manager at Phillips & Motorola before progressing to Operations Management roles and then starting his own business in 2008. His company Simply Outsourced provided IT managed services to retailers (Asda,Tesco, Morrisons) and hospitality (Pizza Express, Greggs, Yates). During this time, he realised how difficult recruitment was when trying to expand his own business, hence why he set up Recruital.


David’s main passion is for sport and loves Rugby and Golf. When not watching or playing sport he loves to spend time with his wife and 3 daughters.



Sara Brown – Recruitment Resourcer

Sara started her working life with 7 years Customer Service in retail (Waitrose, John Lewis), which then adapted into a new career in the motor insurance sector as a call centre agent (Hastings Direct). After 3 years working on the phone, she was promoted to an Operation Support Assistant which included: event planning, colleague engagement, colleague well-being and recruitment for the call centre staff. Through her time as an Operation Support Assistant, she won the branch award for Outstanding Contribution to the company. After Sara’s 8 years at the contact centre, she found her passion for recruitment, worked in the private medical healthcare sector and is now back in the insurance sector working with Recruital.

In Sara’s spare time, she does voice-over work, supporting students or small funded businesses with free voice-overs. After recording a demo sample tape and advertising her assistance, it is something she now does regularly and loves to do ‘cartoon style character’ or ‘ an evil villain’ voices the most.

Wayne Hope – Business Consultant

Wayne has spent over a decade within the insurance sector progressing through the ranks up to sales management level before moving into recruitment. The insurance industry is an area that he is very passionate about and excited to be part of the sector again through Recruital. At Recruital, Wayne spends most of his day speaking with new and existing clients within the insurance sectors, building relationships and getting new roles for the team to work on. Sales and Insurance is in Wayne’s DNA and something he really enjoys and gets a real buzz doing.

When he is not on the phone he is spending time with his daughters or watching his beloved Newcastle.
