Stef is a History & Politics graduate who ignored the call to Westminster and instead took his first role in recruitment in 1997. He joined a well-known, international construction recruitment firm in 1999, where he became a specialist within the London market.
Predominantly working on Quantity Surveying, Estimating and all things Commercial, he built a broad network of candidates and clients alike. In 2004 he joined Mace to work in their new recruitment division as an Executive Search Consultant, working on high level retained search assignments.
In 2005 he decided it was the perfect time to take what he had learnt and the connections he had developed to create redfish. Now, over twelve years on, he is still just as committed to delivering the highest level of service as he was on his first day in 1997.
Director – redfish North
Baz graduated from Sheffield Hallam University with a BSc (Hons) Construction Management in 1994. Baz took his first role in construction recruitment in 1999 at the same international construction recruitment firm as Stef.
Baz utilised his construction degree and became an industry specialist, with a particular focus on Site Management, Project Management and Design Management. Baz left the firm in 2003 to return to construction and became a joint Director at North Interiors, a successful London commercial office fit out company.
He has been a Director of VHO, a pay as you go Virtual Head Office for small firms, since 2010 and in 2014 he joined redfish as Operations Director before then relocating in the summer of 2016 to set up the redfish Leeds office to cover the North of England.
Director – Infrastructure & Engineering
John heads up the Infrastructure and Engineering division within redfish.
He started his recruitment career in 1997 and has predominantly worked in engineering sectors including rail, power, utilities, mining and hydrocarbons.
He has benefitted from working in the UK and Australia where he has been responsible for sourcing talent for client organisations, project management consultancies, designers and main contractors delivering some of the largest and most complex engineering projects.
In 2015 he joined the redfish management team and enhanced their already strong reputation in the construction and engineering sectors across London and South East.
Integrity and honesty underpin the service he offers clients and candidates. His professional motivation is to form long lasting relationships with senior personnel in the sectors he operates in.
