Managing Director of Sanctuary International

  1. LinkedIn Profile

Lee brings creativity and big-picture thinking to his role at Sanctuary, and has always been passionate about delivering a service that adds tangible value to clients and candidates.

Lee heads up Sanctuary's International division, with a focus on client relationships and developing recruitment solutions for the NHS. It’s been a sharp learning curve and the most rewarding period of his career to date; Lee enjoys having the freedom to grow, and to work for a company where its values align with his own. He believes Sanctuary stands out because of its integrity, and expects the company to be a clear market leader in the mid-long term due to its technology-led solutions.

During his ten years at Sanctuary, Lee has managed and set up several divisions; he’s particularly proud to see that the individuals he’s recruited and supported have developed into high performers. He enjoys working in a team of likeminded and driven colleagues and has made some amazing friends along the way. 

A self-proclaimed ‘annoying cyclist, who holds up traffic in Lycra’, in his personal time Lee enjoys racing and riding up mountains. He also loves spending time with his partner and two sons, is a keen reader, and tries his hand – occasionally failing – at home improvements!
