My name is Paul Smith. I have worked in recruitment for over 7 years. Most recently working at Staffline for clients such as XPO Logistics and H&M. I have recently joined Oakland Recruitment.

I also have vast experience running my own projects and businesses over the years.

I am a friendly person and extremely ambitious. I aim to create long-term business relationships and always give my best for my clients and candidates.

I am happy to join the amazing Oakland Recruitment Team and provide my business development and recruitment expertise.

On a personal level; I am a massive Liverpool FC fan, and I enjoy song-writing and recording music.

I am also a professional singer.

My passions outside of work are supporting community organisations and community volunteering. Recently I received recognition from Her Majesty’s Lord Lieutenant for Staffordshire for my support to the Staffordshire community.
