Dean Cowdell's thoughts on the past year


Dean Cowdell is our Regional Manager for the Northern Region and has worked with Linsco since starting as a Resourcer in 2005


So how is business going in the north west?

Business in the north west is vibrant I think sometimes people just look at the north west and see Manchester and Liverpool which are both leading the way in terms of construction work but we are also winning a lot of business in places like Chester, Warrington and Lancaster which speaks volumes.

What’s the advantages of having a regional office in Warrington?

It is a massive advantage in terms of servicing our clients and getting out to meet them whilst introducing our local team to new clients. Our consultants have a good knowledge of the local area and have improved our candidate base with people that they know and we are far more accessible to our candidates now.

What’s been the highlight of your role since opening Warrington last year?

There have been several highlights but the business growth clearly is one I don't think anyone expected so much so soon. However it would be nice to be moving into a bigger office, and especially as it is so soon after opening in Warrington, it certainly shows we are here to stay whilst highlighting our expansion in the region.

Where do you see the next big project starting and who will you need?

I think our next big project would be into the North East to link my region together and even potentially to reach our Scotland office border. We will need the support from all the team in Nottingham as well as an outstanding resource team and a consultants with local knowledge to help get it established.

I am interested in hearing from any local consultants in the region who wish to join my teams and help me expand the regions base.
