Boasting over 20 years’ experience in recruitment and talent acquisition, Barnes has focused on the technology market for the entirety of his career. With experience spanning the UK, Europe and Asia, his expertise will bring a strong level of leadership in the firm's technology sector; a key area of growth both in London and in markets such as Germany and the Netherlands. Having focussed exclusively on contract recruitment across the UK and Europe – including Dach, Benelux and Scandinavia – Greg Barnes will also take charge of overseeing the team’s growth ambitions across Europe.

Prior to joining Eames, Barnes spent seven years as a Director with Rec4Tec, a human capital solutions company that helps businesses address the acute challenges that are being faced within the technology sector. Before this, he also held roles with Darwin Recruitment, Juniper Networks, Resolution Partners, and spent a six-year spell with ECI, where he was a Senior Consultant.

Commenting on the appointment, Daniel Navazesh, Partner & Director, Contract, said, “I am delighted to welcome Greg to the team… His background, having worked both in-house and in consultancy roles within the technology sector, brings a strong level of capability and leadership to the team. As we look towards our ambitious growth plans, I am confident Greg will be a great asset to the business.”
