​Hey I’m Richard,

I have worked at Spencer Clarke Group for over 4 years now, specialising in education and SEND (Special Educational Needs and Disabilities). I am currently the Managing Consultant of this department.

I was one of the very first members to join the Spencer Clarke Group when it opened its doors in 2017. Spencer Clarke Group was actually founded by my brother Mike Shorrock after he learnt his craft working at an agency in the North West. Since launching Spencer Clarke Group, we have experienced phenomenal success and I am extremely proud to have been a part of the journey.

During my time at Spencer Clarke Group, I have had the pleasure of linking local authority SEND Services with some of the best talent across the country and it fills me with pride when a council can completely turn around and enhance their statutory provision through the talent which we supply them with. It’s extremely rewarding!

Before joining the wonderful world of recruitment, I spent 10 years in the hospitality trade where I honed my customer service skills while working in a fast paced industry - all skills which I could transfer into the recruitment industry.

As a people person, I love working with my candidates and I endeavour to provide the best possible service and opportunities. Candidates have described me as responsive, efficient and very easy to communicate with!

I’m always looking to speak with Educational Psychologists, SEN Case Officers, EHCP Coordinators (and more) so if you’re looking for pastures new, why not reach out to discover the opportunities available? If you’ve never worked through an agency before, don’t be scared - I can give you a full rundown on how it all works.

Outside of work, I’m an avid golf fan and you will usually find me on a course somewhere at the weekend. If I’m not on the course, I’ll be with my puppy Mabel - she likes to keep me on my toes!

If you’re part of a council and you would like to have an exploratory conversation to discover more about the services we can offer, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me on 01772 954200.

Or book a meeting when I’m free here.
