Richard Clegg BSc. (Hons) Director Medical, Pharma & Engineering
I have over 20 years recruitment experience and have worked with some fantastic people and a great client base over that time. Recruitment is a real passion for me, with the demands of talent acquisition being a real challenge for growing companies. Specialising in the ‘regulated products’ manufacturing sector and working with SME’s right through to some of the larger UK blue chip organisations (including FTSE 100 companies). I recruit senior staff, middle management and director level appointments.
Recruiting across the Food & Drink industry for the last 18 years, I’ve been fortunate enough to work with and support a multitude of Clients, to ensure that they secure the best possible talent available within the Industry.
As the Expion business has grown and developed at such a rate over the last 6 years, 2016 sees me turn some of my attention to growing the business by securing high calibre recruitment talent across the UK, whilst ensuring that my clients are supported 100% in their quest to find the very best people.

Leading the team has been a privilege, and now as as an APSCo member business, I’ve been elected to the APSCo Representative Committee until 2020 something I am really proud of.
