Adam Hodges - HR Practice Lead - CCS

Adam Hodges

I joined CCS as the first employee to develop the HR division, so I’ve been here from the start when the business launched in January 2017. Having successfully built the HR division, I now lead the practice where we specialise in HR, Learning & Organisational Development appointments – myself personally specialising in senior to executive appointments. In addition to this I lead the office operations for all day-to-day operational activity within CCS.

Having started my recruitment career here at CCS where I’ve established myself quickly within the HR market, building strong relationships across multiple sectors, successfully leading on a number of high profile and complex searches.

Being promoted to Senior Consultant back in 2018, and most recently being made interim Head of CCS in January 2020, I am now CertRP, MIRP qualified and am an Assoc CIPD having recently passed my level 3 exam to better understand all things HR.

In my spare time, you can find me actively recording new music, renovating my property and exploring Brighton and the South Downs with my puppy!

Adam was very approachable, lovely to talk to and deal with. He was very honest and extremely reliable – always doing what he said he would do, and maintained contact throughout.

Interim HR Shared Services Lead

Adam is quite simply the most professional and competent recruitment consultant I have ever had the pleasure to work with over the last 20+ years.  My view as a client is that Adam demonstrates a brilliant depth of understanding of what I need and regardless of how big the challenge may be, he always delivers.  I have also had the pleasure to work with Adam as a candidate and was again so impressed at his approach which was engaging, informative, supportive, helpful and everything else I needed and wanted.

Adam is clearly dedicated to doing a fantastic job and he succeeds every time…and then some.   Unless I had no choice (i.e. for roles outside Adam’s remit) I would never use another recruitment consultant.

Senior HR Business Partner

It has been an absolute pleasure working with Adam to secure my next role. Adam is obviously proficient and uses his flair for people management to an optimum, striking the perfect balance in quickly building rapport whilst remaining professional and efficient at every stage.

Demonstrating enviable excellence, he has represented his organisation and indeed profession, admirably. Thank you, Adam, for your invaluable support and guidance.
