Meet the directors: Sean Hickey

SEAN USESean Hickey’s recruitment career spans almost 30 years, in which time he held high-level roles in pan-European businesses, before then founding CCS Recruitment in 1995.

Before he started in recruitment, Sean had a history in surveying and buying in M&E for the construction and oil and gas industries, in the UK and Ireland – meaning he fully gets our client sectors.

With that experience, a bursting contacts book and a tonne of ambition, Sean set about establishing a business which would help candidates and clients find eachother, primarily in the construction and property sectors.

Fast forward 25 years, and Sean’s team has helped housebuilders and developers find site talent across the length and breadth of the country – whilst also working with candidates to find them the right roles for their skillsets.

In 2000, Sean and his business partner Nick Hardisty established Inspired, a sister division focusing on connecting IT and tech candidates and clients.

The company is based out of headquarters in Stockport, Cheshire.
