Gary Charles

Gary is a Principle Consultant at Burns Sheehan responsible for the growth, development and success of our JavaScript team Gary prides himself on providing recruitment solutions based on quality and pace. He thoroughly enjoys building relationships with clients and candidates alike and genuinely loves what he does. Away from the office, to his dismay, Gary has recently hit the qualified age for playing Vets rugby. His son is his world and if not found in the pub using his charm, he’ll be working the ‘gut’ off in the gym.
