the management team

Ollie Benn

Co-Founder / Commercial Director

I have over 12 years' experience in the recruitment sector, successfully managing the development, delivery and operations of permanent and interim recruitment businesses across various markets.

My focus at Critical is on our growth and client development, working to ensure that we remain customer-centric and quality focused.

I’m passionate and driven by our goal to build the strongest network of niche technical experts in the UK by creating a community that benefits both our clients and associates.

Jessie Harrington

Co-Founder / Director

After working within Compliance & Risk recruitment functions, I headed up a resourcing team placing permanent staff into roles within FS, banking and consultancy.

My experience of managing teams, processes and client relationships has been utilised within Critical Resourcing as I continue to grow the business. My role is to constantly refine and improve our network to ensure we always deliver high quality candidates, whilst meeting our service level agreements.

I’ve had great insight into how to create and manage a highly successful resourcing delivery model, mapping markets, devising industry intelligence methods and partnering clients.
