Tom Martin

Divisional Manager - Pensions & Benefits and Compliance & Risk

Tom Martin

Phone: W: 01293 572900

Since August 2010, I have developed solid experience of working with clients from SME to multi-national Blue Chips across the UK Pensions & Benefits world. In March 2019, I expanded that knowledge into a second market; Compliance & Risk. We have now combined the two, meaning that we can successfully support any and all firms in the Pensions & Benefits (and associated) markets; from administration, to management, to project delivery, consulting, broking, communications and of course, compliance and risk.

From my stand point, I have experience of managing a team totalling 6 Recruitment Consultants; overseeing their day-to-day performance and ensuring their continuous professional development through regular training and coaching, whilst also looking at new business opportunities and adding regular input into our evolving marketing strategies. I have generated and am consistently maintaining a high-calibre candidate pool through continuous networking, attending industry events, referrals and executive search.

Laura Darwen Senior Pensions Administrator and Subject Matter Expert at ReAssure (previously AdminRe UK)

I found Richard extremely proactive, friendly and supportive during my application process. I felt able to speak openly to Richard about any concerns and he was always happy to help.

David Larkins Technical Consultant at Arthur J. Gallagher & Co.

December 5, 2017, David was a client of Richard’s

I have always used Alexander Lloyd for job searches and they are very helpful, know their stuff and not pushy!

Richard in particular is great and understands personal needs and which companies best suit my abilities and where there is the potential for me to progress. Richard is very knowledgeable in the financial services recruitment industry and has a great reputation. 

I would always recommend the company and in particular Richard when assisting friends and family for jobs.

Richard takes the time and care needed when looking for jobs for others. Knowing that their is a incentive can sometimes be daunting when making a career (and lifestyle change) but Richard will always only place peoples for jobs he knows they are best suited. 

Richard and I have kept in touch throughout the years and he will certainly be someone I turn to first if I ever need career support again.

For those that are looking for a role - I would 100% suggest speaking with the Alexander LLoyd team and in particular Richard Dodgson.
