"Our Mission is to provide an honest, professional service to our clients, through our dedicated and professional team"


Rachel Oliver - Director 

My career in recruitment began in 1996 when I started working for one of the largest independent agencies as an industrial and catering consultant and I swiftly moved on to work as a commercial consultant. During the eleven years working for the same agency I held many positions, Branch Manager through to Area Director. With the knowledge and skills gained I set up Clockwork Recruitment in 2009 and have a team of experienced people working with me, all of which have worked together previously.

When I am not running Clockwork Recruitment, I am either walking my dog (or she is walking me) or you may see me on SkySports News sitting behind the goal in the Matthew Harding end of Stamford Bridge watching Chelsea.

Rochelle Wilding - Business AdministratorI have been working in the recruitment industry since 2005, covering a variety of areas from administration through to running a busy temporaries desk for one of the largest independent agencies in the area. I joined Clockwork Recruitment in February 2010, on a temporary basis assisting Rachel with the administration and accounts side of the business. As Clockwork grew, so did my role, I now work permanently for them to ensure the "branch runs like Clockwork". When I am not at work I enjoy spending time with my family; I have a young daughter who has a busier social life than me! You will also find me out walking my dog whatever the weather!!

Becky Simmons - Marketing & Social Media Consultant

My first ever role was based in recruitment as a Team Assistant.  Having then spent a number of years in Creative Marketing working for a large FMCG company, I then started my own small Marketing & Social Media company, providing online marketing and brand design.  Having now gone full circle I am working with Clockwork Recruitment as their Marketing and Social Media Consultant.

When not in the office, I enjoy Fitness, Brocante Fairs and spending time with my family.

Aleks Griffin - Branch Administrator

At Clockwork my role is to provide administrative support to the sales function of the recruitment business and assist with branch administration for the smooth running of the company. Prior to that I spent six happy years as a PA to the Chairman and CFO in the Oil & Gas Industry. I have also worked in roles as a Receptionist, Admin and Facilities Assistant.

In my spare time I love baking with my two children, and when we’re not training to be potential GBB contestants are visiting all the playgrounds in Surrey! I’m also a keen runner and can be found in Woking park  most Saturdays taking part in a weekly 5k challenge.

Jane Blackwood - HR Manager

I can't remember being anything before being an HR Manager, through the years I have worked in various industries and come across practically anything that can be thrown at you, which I can tell you is quite a lot. There is never a dull moment but I enjoy every moment working with people and rising to the challenge. I have found there is no problem that cannot be solved. When I am not helping people I am trying to stay fit and healthy, note the word trying. Also camping (when it is not raining) and enjoying spending time my family.
