Meet Our Team

DP Connect has always made the training of its staff a top priority. With the IT world changing so fast, no credible recruitment business could do otherwise, and for us, developing our staff applies to everyone in the company. Our staff are our ambassadors, whether you are a director, managing payroll or answering the switchboard. Simple lack of space means that here we describe the roles of our directors and divisional team leaders, whilst recognising the essential contribution of all our other staff in providing the DP Connect service.

After 5 years as MD of MSB International prior to its successful sale to Networkers International, he became MD of the European technology brands within the Spring Group which included Spring Technology, Best, and Glotel. After Spring’s successful sale to the Adecco group, Aidan was given additional responsibility for the Computer People brand becoming MD of the largest technology recruiter in the UK with a turnover in excess of £400 million across 12 locations with 400 consultants.

The business had gone through an MBO since his departure in which current CEO Aidan acquired the business from Founder Toni Cocozza, and was going through a period of substantial growth and development. Craig is really enthused about the future and where we can take the business to.
