Meet the team

Will Roebuck
Director and South West Manager
I specialise in sourcing candidates for specialist security cleared tech roles. Outside of work you’ll catch me watching Football (I’m a Nottingham Forest Fan), climbing mountains, or watching lots of Netflix!
Dominic Barbet
Senior Recruitment Consultant & London Lead
Part of the National Security & Intelligence team - outside of work I enjoy skiing, occasionally going to the gym and spending far too much time in my local sports bar!
Jacob Whiteway
Senior Recruitment Consultant & South Coast Lead
When I’m not finding security cleared tech professional you’ll find me lounging in Bar Lounge; if you don’t have any luck there you’ll find me on the golf course!
Scott Evans
Recruitment Consultant & Manchester Lead
I specialise in National Security and Defence roles at Searchability. When I'm not in the office, I'll probably be playing or watching football. I played in America for 4 years and was lucky enough to travel the country doing so!
Kyle Frith
Cyber Security Recruitment Specialist
I’m into Sports of all kinds including Football, Rugby and F1. In my spare time I like to go Hiking up Mountains and go to the pub with friends.
Ellen Lewis
Recruitment
Consultant
I'm bubbly, energetic and chatty! When I'm not in work you'll normally find me having fun and a drink or two with my friends, or walking my gorgeous dogs! I also enjoy exploring new European cities and lots of good food.
Jean De-Luc Torchon
Recruitment
Consultant
Huge football fan, even bigger Liverpool fan. When i'm not in work you might find me in the pub watching any match that's on. I love listening to music and i'm always at different concerts. I also enjoy trying different foods especially chicken wings.
Jamie Cottam
Recruitment
Consultant
Previously worked in the demolition industry before deciding it wasn’t for me and decided to pursue a career in recruitment. When not in the office you’ll either catch me watching football (Manchester City), rugby league (Warrington Wolves), in the gym or, mostly, at the pub.
Ryan Baker
Recruitment
Consultant
When I’m not working as part of the Searchability National Security and Defence team, you’ll probably find me in a bar with my friends (I am partial to the odd tequila shot) or out walking with my friends.
Henry Clay-Davies
Recruitment
Consultant
When not in work you’ll find me in a pub watching rugby or football (Manchester united unfortunately) in my spare time. Love travelling with the highlight being dodging the pandemic in Thailand for 6 months, keen for the gym but prefer a drink and some good food whilst exploring Manchester.
Jessica McCarthy
Recruitment
Consultant
If I’m not in the office, I will most likely be abroad with a glass of wine in hand! Most likely somewhere warm and preferably at the beach. There’s nothing I love more than some tapas and wine by the water!
Steve Willis
Recruitment
Consultant
So, whilst at Searchability, I am quite busy balancing the family life with my beautiful girlfriend and five children. Love a beer, love a dance and love to cheer on the Reds when I get a chance. Obsessed with music. Currently learning to drive, so that is next on my list.
Alex Boumba
Recruitment
Consultant
When I’m not recruiting security cleared tech professionals in London, you can find me walking my 4 legged girls in the park with my girlfriend. Although, if it’s raining I’d much rather be in the pub with my friends (dog friendly of course).
Laura Eckles
Recruitment
Consultant
When I'm not in the office you will find me booking my next trip away, always chasing the sun all year round! I love the outdoors and spending my weekends out with my horse and dog, in the gym or eating out and enjoying a glass of wine.
