Martin Burnett

Associate Director


As an Associate Director I have had the pleasure of 14 years successful experience in the recruitment market and, having been at Finlay James since there were 3 of us in a tiny office on a business park in a suburb of Manchester, I have seen an awful lot of change in process and how things are done in IT and tech recruitment. The fundamentals, of course, always stay the same!

With 5 offices now and over 60 people in the business I feel a real responsibility to pass on my knowledge and experience to all I work with and act as a mentor and person to come to should anyone need a helping hand along the way.

In addition to this I am now very much focusing on the high-end Director/VP and C-level market working with start-ups and exciting technologies in the cyber security and analytics space globally. I enjoy reading about cyber security and really having a niche to focus on. It’s a growing area and I truly feel at home working at this level and helping small companies grow through the IPO process as they grow in the USA and into the UK and EMEA.
