Meet the team

Not just a pretty face
Meet Ruby

My name is Ruby, I joined Educated Appointments in September 2022 as a Recruitment Resourcer whilst undergoing an apprenticeship in Recruitment Resourcer Level 2. I really enjoyed the idea of trying a new career path in recruitment, as it's something I have never done before but loved the sound of it, Educated Appointments was the perfect opportunity for that. Everything else that comes with the amazing company was a bonus. I enjoy fashion and shopping in my spare time, typical girl I know. A fun fact about me is that I love to travel and explore new countries.

Meet Kristian

My name is Kristian Hammond and I joined Educated Appointments back in June 2021. I worked closely with Joe in another role previously where I worked as an apprentice resourcer myself. I was promoted to several positions and when the opportunity to work with Joe in his new company became available it was too good an opportunity to turn down. I loved the ethos behind Educated Appointments and felt it matched the type of company I want to be a part of. I play football in my spare time and have done 3 apprenticeships myself! I buzz when I find somebody a new role they love and look forward to speaking with you in the near future.

Meet Joe

My name is Joseph Sutton (Joe preferably but you can call me whatever you'd like). I’m the company director and owner of Educated Appointments founded in February 2019. Having worked within FE for close to 8 years previously, I decided to create a recruitment organisation that offers a service that’s remembered whilst building and maintaining exciting relationships with everybody we work with. 

I’m a father of two boys which is why I have no hair left! I enjoy playing golf and watching sports in my spare time. A fun fact about me is I enjoy music production and in my spare time consider myself to be a future electronic production star!
