Recruitment Training Barclay Jones Meet the Team

Wayne Barclay


I create practical recruitment technology and CRM strategies - Bullhorn, Bullhorn Automation (AKA Herefish), and Adapt are my speciality

I have worked in recruitment for nearly 20 years.   I started in recruitment as Recruitment Consultant, where I was given a desk, phone, 20 Telegraph Advert applications and told my target was £12k… “get on the phone”!    I transitioned into IT, supporting and managing the IT infrastructure, network management and eventually becoming an IT Director. 

As well as being a Director of Barclay Jones, I coach recruitment leaders and project manage Recruitment CRM replacement projects, such as Bullhorn, Bullhorn Automation (AKA Herefish), and Adapt, as well as advising on recruitment process, technology strategy, and other recruitment tech systems.

I also create strategy, and oversee the content for our Recruitment Training Portal - Recruitment HIIT.

What do I get a kick out of?

Recruitment technology has changed significantly in 20 years and I love seeing technology implemented and successfully embedded into Recruitment Companies.   I enjoy working with recruiters who need to improve their workflows, analyse opportunities to improve engagement, identify automation possibilities and improve the Candidate, Client and Consultant experience. 

Spinning discs with Annie Mac

My ideal day would involve going to a climbing wall with Annie Mac. Then washing down fish and chips with Black Sheep Ale, whilst watching the Walking Dead.
