Consultant profile

Rob Baker

Senior Consultant, Accountancy and Finance
Cambridge office

Having trained and qualified as a Sports Therapist, I worked within the NHS and professional football field for 3 years before undergoing surgery and re-evaluating career options which is where I started at a national recruitment agency in London recruiting for legal and charity organisations within Finance.

I moved to Cambridgeshire from Essex in 2014 and joined The ONE Group where I continued my specialism in Accountancy & Finance initially within the profession before taking on an Industry & Commerce desk for the qualified market place for Cambridge and surrounding areas.

Having worked at a national agency and moving to a leading regional based agency the difference is vast- I have the autonomy to manage my desk and workload as appropriate; giving me greater flexibility and the opportunity to understand both my clients and candidates needs in more detail to which they aren’t just a number. This has enabled me to build some strong relationships with both parties to give successful outcomes throughout the recruitment process.

In my spare time, I continue to be involved in sport; playing football and golf on a regular basis while spending time with family and close friends when time allows.
