Richard Bradley, MD of Kelly UK & IE and VP of Project RPO, has one goal and it's simple – to help his clients to win an unfair share of talent.

He has tasked in-house recruiters with demanding value from the agencies they work with. For over a decade, Richard has lived this ethos and helped companies improve their talent acquisition and engagement strategies. The impact? Better people, greater brand recognition, and more engaged recruits with a lower cost per hire.
As a father of triplets, Richard knows first-hand the challenges of juggling work and home life. Richard has created a culture across the business that reflects the need for balance and the results speak for themselves.
