WHO WE ARE

Who we are

Meet our team

Source was founded in 2015 by two award winning industry leaders, Gavin Tew and Lawrence Hargreaves.

After holding leadership roles within an award winning technology recruitment agency, they wanted a new challenge and created a new business founded on principles of customer service, innovation and strong values.

With a stellar management team, they lead carefully chosen specialist recruiters, each focused on a specific market and fully networked into the relevant candidate pool.

The Founders

Gavin has worked in tech recruitment since 2001, gaining experience in all technologies and all industry sectors.  He progressed quickly, rising through the ranks to Manager, Director & Sales Director before setting up Source Technology with Lawrence in 2015.

With a hugely energetic personality, Gavin gets hands on with all aspects of client service delivery as well as steering the strategic direction of the business.   Acting as a mentor to his teams, he is passionate about creating a supportive culture where people can reach their full potential, proven by the numerous awards he’s won during his career.

Hell bent on turning Source into a market leading recruitment consultancy, Gavin also does the odd bit of recruitment himself.

Lawrence Hargreaves
