Meet our team of online recruitment specialists....

Ben de Grouchy

Founder

I've worked in the recruitment industry for 10 years, 8 of which have been focused on building DGP which is a sales and marketing focused recruitment company. I built this from scratch up to a team of over 10 people, servicing some of the best clients possible such as Nestle, Unilever, Coty, Innocent, Diageo and Red Bull - to name just a few!

I set up ecruit as it allows me to provide my clients with a low cost alternative to using a recruitment agency. By combining my knowledge, with new technology and an amazing online marketing presence, I can give my clients access to a superb candidate network. My role here is varied; I love the thrill of dealing with customers and developing new concepts so I would describe myself as a customer service director and innovation manager all rolled into one!

When I'm not running the business, I can be found watching Octonauts with my new 2 year old son and 4 year old daughter, or jogging round the common trying to maintain my new fitness regime!

Natalie de Grouchy

Chief Operations and Technology Officer


I previously worked in the innovation and technology division of Barclays as Vice president, helping the bank drive their IT change agenda. I was tempted into the exciting world of recruitment and digital technology after craving something that would allow me a greater degree of ownership and speed to market, and I found exactly this at ecruit!

I am in charge of our technical product development, and the day-to-day running of the service team.

I have a love of the arts (which I studied at Kings College London), and when I'm not visiting galleries on the weekend I'll be found researching my second passion of gemstones and jewellery.

Matt Wisniewski

Sales Director

The majority of my career has been spent in online recruitment, where I’ve recruited, built and coached sales teams. I’ve worked at some of the largest Job Boards in the UK – Monster, fish4jobs and reed.co.uk. I’ve helped clients reduce their cost per hire, recruitment administration and helped them recruit the best talent into their organisations. I’ve always enjoyed meeting clients, finding out the challenges they face with their recruitment and helping them overcome these challenges.

I joined ecruit because they have an excellent offering, a fun team and a great culture.

Away from work, I enjoy a good movie, spending time with my family and friends, working out and most sports.

Nina Pezeshkian

Account Director

I graduated from Kings College London where I studied Philosophy, Religion and Ethics, and then spent two years running the office at IV Club in Maida Vale. I decided that I would love to move into something more creative, and opted for the exciting world of marketing and advertising at ecruit.

Working with such a diverse group of clients gives me a real buzz - no two assignments are the same - and I love the challenges I'm faced with every day.

In my spare time I love watching true crime documentaries and getting lost in a good book. I am also a big music fan, so you can often find me in front of the piano or guitar!

Martin Powton

Head of Marketing

I have spent almost 15 years in digital marketing across a range of industries building a diverse skill set including SEO, PPC, Email Marketing, content creation and more. I have worked for in house teams and agencies across B2B and B2C including large companies like Sports Direct and small tech start-ups. 

I am excited to bring my experience to the awesome team at ecruit to expand our reach and help more companies hire the top talent for a lower cost. 

Outside of work I love spending time with my family including my 2 kids and a dog called Milo. My interests range from following Liverpool FC to audiobooks, VR gaming, films, music and running. 

Rebecca Woods

Recruitment Administrator

I’ve previously worked in the SEO, Oil and Gas and Agricultural sectors in administration and recruitment, and more recently ran my own dog-walking business for 5 years!


Joining Ecruit has been a brilliant start to my journey back into employment, it offers me an interesting, varied workload with a fun and supportive team!

Outside of work I enjoy socialising with friends, walking my dog and horse riding, I can often be found competing in dressage at the weekends

Alex Leventhall

Campaign Manager

I studied Communication, Media and Music at Liverpool University before starting my career off in the film industry. Here I met some of the most demanding people on the planet, which set me up very well for a career in client services and recruitment. I started off at DGP three years ago in the brand team, going through several promotions to eventually head up all of commercial marketing for the company.

I get a real pleasure and satisfaction from working with clients, and as a senior client service manager at ecruit my role is all about setting up and managing effective advertising campaigns for my customers. I am also a bit of a techie and a social media whizz, so my role bring together a lot of skills that I enjoy and come naturally.

My other real passion is for entertainment and music. I love going to gigs with friends and family, my top highlight was seeing Ed Sheeran which was awesome!
