Jason Hodgson Recruitment Director

Throughout my career I have always been a people person. My ability to form strong interpersonal and business relationships has been key to my success in recruitment. I find reward through the development of others and helping them realise their own objectives and potential.

When I’m not working, I enjoy plenty of walking with my two Siberian Huskies, in addition to a weekly yoga class which allows me to stay healthy. My favourite holiday destination has to be Florida, without a doubt!

Simon Glencross Director

My career started in the hospitality industry at the age of 16 here in Carlisle. I worked through all departments until becoming Front of House Manager. My career took me to London where I worked for a software development company, initially supporting hospitality software, but soon moved to development using both my hospitality experience and software support to help develop property management systems.

Having lived in London for a little over 6 years, I made the decision to return to Carlisle. I enjoy walking in my spare time, keeping up to date with current affairs and travelling overseas.

Emma Lindsay Recruitment Manager

I love that no two days are the same at NXT, and I enjoy the fast pace and urgency that comes with working with people and businesses. I enjoy representing NXT and I jump at any opportunity to get out of the office, be it to meet with clients, attend exhibitions and events, or to support local schools and charities with projects.
My energy and enthusiasm is regularly commented on and I believe strongly in treating people how you want to be treated. Helping people to secure career paths and seeing businesses grow because of the work we have done is what motivates me. I pour my heart and soul into everything I do and never take the easy option!
I’m passionate about travelling, good food (and wine) and muddy walks with my bulldog in The Lake District at every opportunity I get.

Amy Swailes Recruitment Consultant

My passion for recruitment comes from my desire to achieve positive outcomes, I really enjoy problem solving and finding solutions. I take time to understand clients’ businesses, whilst also getting to know how candidates tick.

With a strong background delivering exceptional service, I’ve always been a ‘people person’ and thrive on finding great people and placing them within their perfect role. Success is found in taking the time, effort, and patience to build long-standing and successful relationships with both candidates and clients alike.

I enjoy acrylic painting which helps me relax, taking foreign holidays and walking my Cavapoo Milo.


Sophie Taggart Recruitment Consultant

With experience in customer relations, account management and delivering exceptional service, I thrive on building relationships and helping candidates realise their potential to progress in their careers.

To me, recruitment is all about the people, I’ve always enjoyed meeting and talking to new people; developing rapport and empowering clients and candidates to succeed.

When I’m not recruiting, I enjoy aerial acrobatics and regularly practice aerial hoop and sling. I’ve also recently re-ignited my passion for dancing and performing arts.

Harvey Frank Recruitment Consultant

I’m passionate about people and helping candidates realise their goals.

Having studied psychology, I’ve always enjoyed understanding and learning about people. A career in Recruitment was the perfect fit for me. I enjoy the fact that every day is different.

Outside of work I switch off by visiting the gym and attending boxing training. I also practice meditation to help with my mindfulness.

Rachel Titterington Marketing Coordinator

I am a driven, innovative, marketer with strong project management and organisational skills. I love a good Excel spreadsheet and Gantt chart! With a passion for influencing results, I have a genuine desire to achieve excellence by how I work.

I am responsible for the development and implementation of the marketing and communications strategy for NXT to ensure business objectives are delivered.

Outside of work I like exploring the Lake District and ticking off the Wainwrights. I also watch as many F1 races as I can and enjoy a good music quiz!


Gillian Brannan Payroll Administrator

I have over 10 years’ experience within finance, undertaking advanced payroll administration support and management. I pride myself on being an excellent communicator with a keen eye for detail.

My role at NXT involves collating information, processing payroll and keeping up to date with changes in current legislation.


My spare time is mainly taken up looking after my two children, however, when I do manage some ‘me’ time I enjoy reading and getting out on walks and exploring.
