Meet The Team.

Alex Franklin.

Managing Director

I have 11 years of experience in the professional services sector. I started out in a fundraising consultancy business and progressed into recruitment in 2015, servicing the NHS IT market. In 2018 I co-founded Penpole Consulting to take more accountability for the resources I was delivering and offer part and fully managed service solutions. I’m a father of four, husband to one, pedal, petrol, rugby, and bicep curl enthusiast.
