BENTON – MANAGING DIRECTOR

As Managing Director of Hunter AHP and Mental Health, Benton is charged with keeping the company pushing ever-forwards. From leading business development and managing internal recruitment to getting involved with day-to-day recruitment activities, marketing and HR, Benton is across all parts of our business.

Benton hails from New Zealand and grew up in Central Otago on the South Island. He started his recruitment career in 2007 employing architects before moving to the UK and recruiting Occupational Therapists. Benton quickly progressed into a managerial position supplying Occupational Therapists, Physiotherapists, Speech & Language Therapists, Psychologists, Community Psychiatric Nurses, Psychological Wellbeing Practitioners, Cognitive Behavioural Therapists and Registered Nurses to both NHS and private clients.

Benton now lives in South West London with his wife Anne and two children age 7 and 5. He enjoys anything that gets him outdoors, from cycling to touch rugby. Benton is, rather obviously, a big supporter of the All Blacks, as well as Liverpool FC and the New York Knicks. He is a regular theatre-goer and, when possible, savours snatching a few minutes to bury himself in a Bernard Cornwell novel.

DECLAN – DIRECTOR MENTAL HEALTH

Declan is the Director of Hunter Mental Health, a division of Hunter AHP Limited. He is passionate about assisting mental health therapists and nurses, helping them to find their dream roles and progress in their careers.

After leaving school earlier then many of his peers, Declan went straight into the world of sales. He quickly decided that his main interest was in recruitment and began working in the mental health field at the age of 19.  Declan has worked with a full spectrum of private and NHS clients, developing a preference for taking strategic actions, developing relationships and matching mental health professionals with opportunity.

Declan is extremely active and spends most evenings playing competitive squash or football. He very much enjoys travelling the south east of England playing squash in multiple leagues. Declan is also a keen skier and spends 2 – 3 weeks in France every year. Other than sport, Declan is a keen traveller and is at his happiest meeting new people and building long-lasting friendships.

GRETA – COMPLIANCE MANAGER

Greta began working in healthcare compliance 4 years ago where she learned the basics of how to process documents, apply for training and carry out Government checks. Being a hugely detail-conscious individual, Greta quickly progressed to become team leader and is now Compliance Manager for both Hunter AHP and Mental Health.

Working in compliance means continuous monitoring of documents and adherence of processes and procedures – it is never-ending, all-consuming and keeps you on your toes. Greta ensures the smooth running of the compliance service while upholding the Hunter values and vision. She is a highly organised and process driven team player whose goal is to ensure that the Hunter compliance function is viewed as an enabler for the business, meets Hunter’s clients’ needs, and guarantees a smooth process for all candidates.

Outside of the office, Greta likes travelling and exploring new cities. She enjoys learning new things, broadening her horizons and meeting new people. Greta is happiest when life’s little things make her smile.

CAMERON – MENTAL HEALTH CONSULTANT

Before joining the team at Hunter Mental Health Cameron had a successful career in retail management. Coming from such a service-focused background means Cameron has an in-depth knowledge of relationship building and customer support.  Delivering great service is one of the values that we stand by and believe is key to successful working relationships between our company and everyone we work alongside.

From a young age Cameron loved quizzes and puzzles and gets great satisfaction from using his knowledge to complete difficult tasks and match suitable gaps with solutions. When he is not working he will be socialising with friends, cooking and following a host of sports teams (the mighty Stevenage FC and Jacksonville Jaguars). He finds nothing better than getting stuck into a good book or binging on Netflix crime dramas.

Cameron thrives on expanding his knowledge and talking to new people, so please do get in touch to see what he can do for you.

OWEN – MENTAL HEALTH CONSULTANT

Owen is a hugely dedicated individual and goes above and beyond to secure the best possible deal with everyone that he works with.  Having recently started in mental health recruitment, Owen is enjoying working in a career where he is rewarded for providing a caring service for everyone involved.

From an early age Owen was always fond of the water and this passion carried through to his professional career as an award-winning sailor.  On the weekends you’ll find Owen back out on the water, or annoying the neighbours trying to learn how to play a piano… He takes every opportunity possible to explore the world, and he loves getting to know people’s stories and how they’ve got to where they are. Owen lives by the philosophy that everyone knows something he doesn’t, which keeps him curious and helps him to provide a comprehensive service.

Owen is always excited to hear what people have to say and looks forward to introducing you to your future role with Hunter Mental Health.

OUR POLICIES.

Embracing diversity

Hunter Mental Health embraces diversity and promotes the benefits of diversity in all of our resourcing activities. We will widen the media in which we recruit to ensure a diverse an employee and candidate base. We will also strive to make sure that our clients meet their own diversity targets.

Age discrimination

Hunter Mental Health will not discriminate directly or indirectly, harass or victimise any person on the grounds of their age. We will encourage clients not to include any age criteria in job specifications and every attempt will be made to persuade clients to recruit on the basis of competence and skills, not age.

No age requirements will be stated in any job advertisements on behalf of the company.

Hunter Mental Health will request age as part of its recruitment process but such information will not be used as selection, training or promotion criteria or in any detrimental way and is only for compilation of personal data, which the company holds on all employees and workers and as part of its equal opportunities monitoring process.

Protection of the environment

Protection of the environment in which we live and operate is part of our values and principles and we consider it to be sound business practice. Care for the environment is one of our key responsibilities and an important part of the way in which we do business.

  • Developing our management processes to ensure that environmental factors are considered during planning and implementation (what environmental factors do you consider)?
  • Monitoring and continuously improving our environmental performance.

This policy statement and the supporting documentation which details how we apply this policy within our work environment and operating practices will be reviewed on an annual basis and updated as necessary, by our in-house environmental manager. The management team endorses these policy statements and is fully committed to their implementation

Positive about people with disabilities

We have a positive attitude towards job applications from people with disabilities and are committed to:

  • Interview all applicants with disabilities who meet the minimum criteria for a job vacancy and to consider them on their abilities
  • Discuss with employees with disabilities, at any time but at least once a year, what both parties can do to make sure employees can develop and use their abilities
  • Make every effort when employees become disabled to make sure they stay in employment
  • Take action to ensure that all employees develop the appropriate level of disability awareness needed to make these commitments work. Review these commitments each year and assess what has been achieved, plan ways to improve on them and let employees and Jobcentre Plus know about progress and future plans
