What We Do
Anchor 2

Everyone knows there’s a few bad stereotypes of your typical recruiter: Covered in glue and

rolled in Topman, drenched in Hugo Boss, BMW on finance, ready to commoditise your career

for a quick buck. Would have gone into banking but didn’t have the brains or connections…

Then there’s the marketing agency wannabees:

So, which box do we sit in?


Probably it’s the well-worn wooden one at the end of shelf that has a bit of an old-world tinge to it.

At our core, we’re traditionalists, call us old-fashioned, but recruitment will never be more or less than the art of connecting people together for mutual success. We sit in the peoples people box.

We want to connect great people to great jobs, provide a quality service and satisfy a real need. Very

much like a tasty pink ring doughnut with sprinkles on it The latest in innovation? Nope, but reliable,

hard-working and keeps you coming back for more. Hopefully, we can do that without all the pretentious ego from the Wolf of Wall Street or his Cult of Fun marketing agency cousin.

So, what’s our mission then?


If you’re a client, that means finding you the best people. If you’re a candidate, that means

presenting you with the best roles. If we nail that, it’s our belief that we will grow your business

and everyone will get to have their doughnut and eat it.

Anchor 3

Is an Attraction Marketing Campaign right every time? No, of course not. But there is a certain

person, time & occasion for which a more nuanced, and attentive courtship is required.


Adam & Rich set up Consumer Hub in September 2017 in Rich’s shed in West Yorkshire.

We are out of the shed now, we've moved into an office and are still in the thriving hotbed of industry that is Wakefield.

Two became ten and counting. We're on our way to the perfect assorted box.

Meet the doughnuts, I mean team, below!

Joe Hall

Accounts, Administration & Research


Richard recruits exciting Food & Drink Commercial roles, hosts our FMCG Podcast and wishes he was a LinkedIn 'influencer'. This is, when he's not eating all the office snacks on camera... 

Courtney looks after our Marketing opportunities all across the UK, is on a mission to become the worlds first recruitment unicorn (yes they exist), and solely accounts for 37% of Yorkshire Tea's sales.

Joe is not your average Joe. He offers recruitment support on those difficult to fill roles, formats sharp-looking CVs and handles Consumer Hub's accounts. That is when he's not being a cinema critic.

Maleeha Gokalia



Kyle Shahadat

Maleeha oversees the social media channels, and films our reviews of the most exciting food & drink products we can find. Outside of work, you'll find her drawing creative sketches - they're very very good!

Kyle recruits all-level CPG roles in the USA across all categories including food, drinks & consumer goods. When he's not doing that you'll find him in the gym or on the court shooting three-pointers.

Jake recruits senior positions in beverages across North America, loves to keep up with all the new craft beer releases and is an avid footy fan - from the Austrian 5th division to following his own team Spurs.


Elle Speck

Elle recruits Food & Drink roles across Marketing and Sales in the UK, loves connecting great people with great opportunities and will whip you up a mean mojito if you ask her nicely.


Connor Whitehouse



Connor recruits opportunities in alcoholic & non-alcoholic drinks for our American clients, has a vast network of beverage specialists and has the best hair in the office (jealousy to the right). 

Adam Green



Adam does what it says on his slightly rusty tin: being the 'General' he looks after all the internal operations for Consumer Hub doing his best to keep the doughnut rolling...

Harry Gunning



Harry runs our marketing behind the scenes including the artwork & editing across The FMCG Podcast, writing witty copy for our job adverts, and creating engaging monthly email campaigns for candidates. He also takes the brunt of the office banter - it's not his fault he's short, ginger and works in marketing. Unlucky.

Check out this nifty video we made that explains what we're all about

Anchor 5

We like eating and talking about snacks almost as much as we like recruitment. So, we set up

the first FMCG recruitment Youtube channel for our Podcasting antics where

we get to explore all things Food, Drink and Business with our guests.
