Paul Scrivens | Head of Commercial


I’m the new boy at….. and I have to say that I couldn’t be happier to be part of Gary Peters’s fantastic team. Having built a career in classified, digital and recruitment media I had an increasing desire to do something with more meaning. After attending one of’s Be the Change launch conferences at the Amex stadium I came away inspired. I knew that by contributing my knowledge and experience I could help do more fantastic work and be a part of something that leaves a mark on the world we live in.

Christina Fishlock | Event Manager


As the Event Manager for I work on the amazing and inspirational programme Be the Change aimed at students who may face challenges and difficulties in school or with school life but who, with the right support and role models, have real potential. The programme focuses on happiness, confidence, hope, relationships and employability and encourages students to identify their personal barriers to success, before helping them find ways of overcoming them.

We also deliver conferences and events for local businesses aiming to provide information, advice and guidance giving practical tips and insights on attracting and retaining local talent.

Fay Van Der Westhuizen | Partnership Executive


My role is Partnership Executive and currently my focus is supporting the successful launch of our new and exciting project, LoveLondonJobs.  I spend the majority of my time researching potential clients, connecting with them and managing their expectations.  My main role is to build and maintain client relations in London and support them through the launch.   

What I love about my role is speaking to different clients of all levels, across all sectors and linking them together to enable them to build their communities and raise brand awareness.  Seeing this project starting to grow is incredibly exciting and to say I was part of it will be a proud moment for me.


Carney Spurr | Client Solutions Executive


My role at is the Client Solutions Executive. My main responsibility within the company is to contact local business big or small who are in need to recruit and I offer them a solution to the problem. The solutions can range from a yearly unlimited to just a single advert. I also work closely with existing clients, making sure their expectations they have of us are met.

Communicating with people is a real skill of mine and it is something I love to do. This is really lucky as it is an integral part of my day to day at work. I enjoy speaking to a different people, in different companies from different sectors every day. Not only that, the work environment is perfect. I work with so many great people, have a great boss, I learn so much each day and there is a beer fridge in the office!



Billy Humphreys | Marketing Executive


My name is Billy and I head up everything marketing at LLJ! I have been with for just under 2 years. My role here consists of two different areas; driving candidates to the website and driving businesses to place job adverts. There’s lots of different ways we do marketing. Mainly it’s Email marketing and direct marketing but other areas include social media, event marketing, radio and offline marketing

The thing I love most about my job is being creative, trying to make something that is ordinary stand out from the crowd; that could be a targeted campaign for businesses that needs a quirky handout to be send in the post, or a lead generation campaign to drive more candidates to an event we are running.

It’s safe to say, whatever type of marketing it is...I will 100% love it! #marketeratheart
