Who will you be working with? We’ll place you with the recruitment consultant who specialises in your sector, and you’ll work closely with them throughout your recruitment and induction journey. Here’s a bit more about the team here at Flagship.

Tom Evans

Managing Director

As the founder and Managing Director of Flagship, I’ve built a successful business based on integrity and trust, offering both clients and candidates a level of service above our competitors. I have built up a nationwide client base, working in partnership with some of the world’s leading property consultancies as well as a large number of SMEs. Over the last fifteen years, I’ve developed a reputation as one of the UK’s leading recruitment consultants in the consultancy market, with an unrivalled portfolio. Whether you’re a new graduate or a Managing Director, I have a wealth of experience placing candidates at all levels, as well as providing expert industry advice.  Alongside running the business, I also lead Flagship Executive, a specialist branch of the company that specialises in Director-level recruitment. Outside work,  I enjoy spending time with my young family, going for the odd run, and visiting the pub with friends; and I’m a big supporter of Liverpool FC!


Niall Collins


I joined Flagship in 2017, originally as a Resourcer, which was my first role in recruitment. I learnt a lot about the industry, and quickly progressed to head up Project Management and Quantity Surveying recruitment for the East Midlands region. I now work nationally covering key accounts including multi-national construction consultancies. I still make time to work with the independent companies I’ve built close relationships with. Whether you’re a client or candidate, I will go beyond technical ability and focus on building long-term personal relationships, ensuring I match people up with their dream jobs. Outside work, football takes up most of my time (injury permitting), either playing or watching. I play 11-a-side on Saturday and Sunday, with training and 5-a-side during the week.


Samuel Smith

Managing Consultant - PQS & Project Management

As a Managing Consultant, I’m responsible for managing a number of Flagship’s Key Accounts. Flagship Consulting is my first employer in the industry, and I joined after graduating from UWE with a 2:1. The training and support provided has allowed me to progress quickly from a resourcer to a consultant. In this role I have built valuable relationships with both new and existing clients through providing them with high quality candidates. Having these close working relationships allows me to fully understand what the client is looking for – an essential part of providing a good service to both clients and candidates. Outside work, one of my main hobbies is sport. I enjoy running, cycling, snow sports and sailing, as well as watching football and rugby. In my spare time I also enjoy socialising with friends, watching television and films, and listening to music.


Steve Halliday

Senior Consultant - Engineering

I am an experienced recruiter who proudly falls into the “mature” category (my own admission). With a proud twelve-year military career followed by spells in bulk liquid warehousing and business advisory services, I entered the recruitment arena in 2001 and have recruited for a variety of technical disciplines ever since. My main focus areas are engineering and environmental consultancies, with clients across the UK. I’ve worked with sectors including the water industry, bridge engineering, drainage/flood risk, geotechnical, geo-environmental, transportation and civil infrastructure. I believe in doing the job properly – and that means the right person in the right role at the right time. Client happy, candidate happy, job done! Outside work, I’m a keen football fan (season ticket holder at Reading FC). Having slimmed down significantly in the last two years, I run two or three times a week (albeit slowly) and enjoy family life with my wife, and our three young and energetic grandchildren.


Lewis Ashman

Associate Director

As a recruitment consultant at Flagship, I am always looking to provide a professional service and ensure both my client and candidate get exactly what they are looking for in a role. I recruit Quantity Surveyors and Project Managers of all experience levels across the southwest and work with some of the leading consultancies in this region. Outside of work I like spending time with friends as well as walking my dog. I am a very sporty person, I used to compete in rowing however now predominantly enjoy golf and going to the gym.
