​Darren started his career in hotel management moving into hospitality recruitment and then found his niche in IT recruitment with a global IT Recruitment company in London. Expanding his skills in business development Darren quickly built life-long relationships with many of his clients which continue today.


Relocating home to the north west Darren met his business partner and set up IT works in 2004. On the back of this success of this they expanded into the US and went on to set up both Populo and Mitec Consulting to focus on Healthcare and ERP business transformation. He provides strong mentorship to the teams and loves the camaraderie of a young vibrant ambitious sales floor.


On a day-to-day basis Darren continues to drive the strategic vision and planning. Working alongside clients discovering their requirements he matches these to unique associate teams who successfully deliver client projects.


Supporting a local homeless charity is a passion of Darren’s. Lancaster & District Homeless Action (LDHA) provide support and care for homeless people in Darren’s home city of Lancaster.
