DNA Recruit are delighted to announce several new additions to the team including the appointment of Dan Brocklehurst – joining us as Practice Sales Director. 

With a strong background in technical and engineering including 10 years in consultant sales and team leadership, Dan brings an additional 7 years of IT and Sales recruitment industry experience. His appointment includes the acquisition of his Cornwall based, specialist infrastructure and emerging technologies agency Air Search. 

Commenting on joining DNA, Dan said: 
“After two very successful years running my own business, I was fortunate enough to speak with Ali Wallace and Dan Prince about their plans for the DNA business and how their offering could propel my capabilities and service offering even further. I instantly clicked with them both and their passion for autonomy and collaboration within recruitment, combined with their infectious drive to enable smaller business portfolios like mine to thrive felt like the obvious next step for my journey and career. 

Joining the DNA family has enabled me to benefit from having access to the best recruitment technology available on the market, years of collaborative experience, and advice to lean on from the best in their field. This is also bolstered with incredible marketing and candidate attraction capabilities delivered through their outsourced marketing partner Halt Agency and the DNA’s extensive network of clients and candidates – that has increased my reach substantially. 

DNA Recruit is a true leader in the “Work from Anywhere” culture and should be the first contact on your list if you are looking for a move into a more autonomous, WFH collaborative recruitment function, without compromising on any of the draws of a larger agency.”


Dan’s appointment follows a period of accelerated growth and expansion at DNA, which has also seen the business appoint seasoned recruitment leader Dan Prince as Operations Director and the acquisition of Connecting Professional limited, resulting in the appointment of its founder Stephen Philips as Head of Tech. both in the past 12 months. 


Ali Wallace - DNA’s CEO and Founder, comments: “Following our transition to a 100% remote-working recruitment business and partnering with Iliad Ventures, we have been actively looking to acquire small, best-in-class recruitment businesses and build an operations structure to allow high-performing senior recruiters all the benefits of working for themselves, with the infrastructure and support of a larger agency. Our strategy has enabled us to attract some incredibility experienced recruiters this past 12-months and gives us a platform to continue expanding our team and service offering for 2022 and beyond.”


In addition to these recent mergers and appointments, we also welcome experienced resource consultant Leatitia Volschenk to the business.
