John Clarkson - Director and Co-Founder

Having graduated from Exeter University, John started working in recruitment 15 years ago and has been focused on Development & Construction search during that time. He has a passion for working closely with candidates and clients to help them achieve their career and business goals. Prior to founding Falmouth Fairfax, he worked at Cobalt Recruitment for just shy of 10 years rising to Director and executing the senior search mandates whilst helping to run the UK internal business in a strategic capacity.

Focusing mainly on mid to senior level appointments John has an extensive contact network working with a range of leading REITS, property companies, family offices, global development business, Investors / lenders and an array of smaller niche practices.

Outside of work John occasionally pretends that he can still play rugby but mainly focuses on skiing, taking part in charity running and triathlon races and periodically escaping with the family to Cornwall.
