MEET THE TEAM

Women-owned business, Charteris is a true talent consultancy, helping you get great results
for your recruitment campaigns across the globe.

WE WOULD LOVE TO HEAR FROM YOU, WE'RE A FRIENDLY BUNCH!

HELEN CHARTERIS

I am the Founder and Managing Director of Charteris, I am a champion of ideas, and building Charteris to be a place where talented, engaged recruitment people come together to share strategies, insights and stories.

Since starting Charteris in 2014 I have always wanted to create a recruitment business that develops long term relationships with our clients as well as candidates. Our clients now include global as well as national brands. 

Before launching Charteris I worked for many recruitment companies, High Street and Independent. I recruit Senior Executives for my clients and appreciate that in today’s market you need to exceed your client’s expectations.

On a personal level, I am a DJ and enjoy Northern Soul, I have travelled to Europe and all over the UK for a good dancefloor. I enjoy baking and spending time with my wonderful family. 

Words to live by: 

Make everything simple, yet as significant as you possibly can. 

SIMON CHARTERIS

Hi I’m Simon and I head the EV and Battery technology division at Charteris. I specialise in positions that include operations, sales and Engineering. Operating across all key European countries, I am very lucky to have developed an amazing client base.

Before my recruitment career I have worked within engineering at all levels throughout the UK, and my interest in Battery and EV has led me to travels to Sweden & Germany to really understand this amazing technology.

 

I enjoy renovating properties having recently purchased a second home in France, I also collect original vinyl with a keen interest in Soul music.

Always trust your gut, it knows what your head hasn't figured out yet.

JO POVALL

Hi I’m Jo and I’m a talent consultant with Charteris Global Search. I’ve been with the company for about two years and prior to this I worked in fast-paced temporary recruitment.

I enjoy working on technical roles where the skill set required is niche and I get to learn something new every day from my candidates!

For me, there is nothing better than helping a candidate find their dream job or a client find the perfect person for the role, that is real job satisfaction.

When I’m not working, I enjoy hanging out with my family and when I’ve had enough of them, I love to run, which is great as I also love baking and sampling my efforts - life is all about balance after all!
