Meet the Team – Manchester

We're changing the perception of sales.

Kyle Gallagher (a.k.a KG, a.k.a Giz, a.k.a Gizlar, a.k.a Dad) – Team Managerpicture1

The one Gallagher brother that has no musical talent – Primes’ Kyle Gallagher is both the king of nicknames and the king of recruitment and sales. After graduating from Sheffield Hallam University with a 2:1 in Business & Marketing, Kyle was Prime’s first ever employee back in 2014 and has grown into an essential part of the team.  Now Kyle is a Team Manager at Prime, and as well as this, he is responsible for managing both candidate and client relationships.

Kyle is a strong Manchester United fan, and loves a glass of red wine with all kinds of food. He is also a fan of his indie bands such as: Oasis, Blossoms and Courteeners (he gets especially upset if you insult Courteeners in front of him).

As well as recruiting candidates and managing client and candidate relationships, she looks after Prime’s key accounts on our sales desk.

A massive Manchester United fan, when not in work Christina is a fan of visiting her family in her hometown of Devon and is partial to a few ciders and the odd game of pool (she also thinks she’s the best in the office).

Nick Gandhi – Senior Sales Recruiter 1

The Gandhi man can! A fan of funky shirts and football, Nick is Primes’ Senior Sales Recruiter – meaning he is key in matching clients with candidates and managing company relationships. A true force to be reckoned with when it comes to his job, Nick eats, lives and breathes sales and recruitment and achieves killer results because of it. He is also Prime’s top biller (as it stands…).

When he’s not in work-mode, Nick is a fan of Manchester United and is constantly being grilled by the team for his poor food and fashion tastes… but we love him anyway!

Joe Leggat – Senior Sales Recruiterpicture101

Willing to eat anything and always cracking jokes around the office, Joe moved easily into his 360 recruitment role where he now manages relationships with clients as well as candidates. On top of this he is responsible for training candidates and finding them their perfect career in sales and recruitment.  He also currently holds the record for the most deals made in a month.

Joe is also prone to making random silly noises in the office, but his more regular habits include listening to indie music and playing lacrosse. As well as this, he has a strong sweet addiction (though he is attempting to crack down on it.)

Chris Thompson- Senior Sales Resourcer 3

Prime’s very own comedian, Chris Thompson is both a joking bundle of joy and an unstoppable force when it comes to recruitment. After completing his Marketing Management degree and joining the company earlier this year, Chris has settled easily into his role at Prime, where he is responsible for finding canidates, interviewing them, training them and placing them in their ideal career.

Outside the office, Chris is a fan of his hometown team Middlesbrough FC. This means he should be referred to as a ‘Smoggy’ and not a ‘Geordie’ or ‘Mackam’ which he is keen to remind everyone. He is also a karaoke enthusiast and is a fan of his yoghurts – in his own words he “loves a good yog!”.
