Colin became a sales recruiter in 1996, when still a young man with a full head of dark hair! 23 years on, having helped hundreds of businesses and the careers of thousands of sales professionals across the construction, built environment, building services, engineering and commercial sectors, whilst now being a silver fox, he's lost none of that passion for offering the very best recruitment solutions. 

Having had some great mentors at CD Sales recruitment, where Colin spent 18 years and more recently with Mandeville Recruitment, he is now extremely excited to be going into partnership with his former protege Nick Harris and looks forward to working with many of his established clients and those that he is yet to know. When away from the office, you'll find Colin spending time with his wife and daughter in the great outdoors (a massive fan of National Trust properties, country walks and the natural world) music festivals, Football (a staunch Brighton & Hove Albion supporter) and socialising with friends and family, with the occasional burst of karaoke.

Colin's history with Nick

In 2001 when my wife and I were house hunting, I met a bright, highly driven young estate agent called Nick Harris. Having at that point 5 years recruitment experience and being the Manager of the Construction team at CD Recruitment, I was never off duty and was always looking for great personalities that I felt could add value to our clients and candidates. I jokingly said to my wife that once we've secured our house, I'd be offering Nick a job in my team and that is how our business relationship began. Nick took to recruitment like a duck to water and was my natural successor when I left CD in 2014. Going into business with Nick was always going to be our destiny and we look forward to working with you.



With over 18 years Construction Sales Recruitment experience Nick is a true veteran of the industry. Nick still has the same passion as he did on his very first day almost two decades ago, you will only have to speak to him to understand that.
His experience and guidance is what has led him to be a trusted advisor to his clients and candidates alike.
A lot of Nicks clients were once in-fact his candidates who he had successfully placed in great roles.
Away from the business Nick can be found chasing his son around the park and looking after his family, also a keen martial artist holding a third dan black belt in Taekwon-do.

Nick's history with Colin:

Having met Colin at the start of 2001 we instantly built up a very natural rapport, I could see that he was an incredibly passionate person who takes real pride in what he does and knows how to get results! I was chuffed when Colin approached me about coming to work for him at CD Sales Recruitment a few months after we had met and not long after the approach I had joined the business! We worked successfully together for 15 years and the birth of Chandler Harris Recruitment was always going to happen! All things have led to this.

Together we can 100% help you.
