Meet the Team

Dhrutee
Director

dhrutee@blue-spark.org.uk

Our founder began her Food career in one of Europe's leading R&D facilities; fell into food recruitment and 'by jove' she found her calling! Nearly 18 years later Dhrutee is still enamoured by every facet of resourcing and the continual challenges faced by the food industry. A real straight shooter, she demands the finest in business and in life, simply doesn't accept second best. We like to think of her as our artful doyenne of talent management and all that's delicious! Couldn't survive without coffee and cheese.

Rachel
Senior Consultant

rachel@blue-spark.org.uk

Thoughtful and enthusiastic, she always perseveres to find the right solution.  Rachel has worked in several food sectors from primary producers to luxury food ingredients. In one of her roles she brought to market San Marzano tinned tomatoes (for which Neil is eternally grateful!). Rachel is an accomplished home baker –a cup cake of a Charlie's Angel,  we think of her as our own Mary Berry (just not as old) or Mrs Beaton (but much much more alive!).

Natasha
Recruitment Resourcer

natasha@blue-spark.org.uk

An active and organized country bumpkin who enjoys traipsing about in the outdoors and is a former horse riding enthusiast. Her need to roam isn't just confined to Sussex either, she's a dedicated world traveller which may explain her talent for whizzing up a meal when presented with a scant selection of ingredients. Perpetually willing to help out and makes a mean cup of tea, both excellent qualities which keep things running smoothly in the office.

Louisianna
Recruitment Resourcer

louisianna@blue-spark.org.uk

Vibrant and energetic with a very inquisitive mind. Loves asking questions about anything and everything – not nosey, just curious! Her food hero is the Good Food Institute as it combines her love of both science and food into the fascinating world of Technical Food innovation. Keeps us on our toes with her ‘facts of the day’ and when not studying for her Masters in Food Policy she is scouting out the latest vegan cuisine.

Daniel
Recruitment Consultant

daniel@blue-spark.org.uk

Brimming with enthusiasm, a bit of cheekiness and a whole load of foodiness, our classically trained chef, restaurant manager and hospitality trainer always has a bounce in his step.  A tea obsessive; he always has a cuppa to hand, makes a mean brew and is happy to be the office tea boy.  Dedicated, driven and supportive, he’s found his calling with recruitment and we think he’s great!

Louise
Senior Technical Consultant

louise@blue-spark.org.uk

Straight talking, practical and grounded she brings a wealth of food industry expertise having worked in Technical for manufacturers, brands and a major retailer. Her claim to fame is launching the first sustainable palm oil product to the UK market.  Travel is her passion and her current life mission is to visit all European countries – she is 68% of the way there!

Heather
Technical Consultant

heather@blue-spark.org.uk

Bubbly, tenacious and people focussed with the ability to understand the complexities of the technical / scientific world and the nuances of recruitment.  She has been a bit of a globe trotter in the past but now relishes the challenge of endurance events, triathlons and mountain biking. 

Sanjay
Business Manager

sanjay@blue-spark.org.uk

Coolly composed this laid-back gadget guru has an array of gizmos and gimmicks to bring a bit of the space-age into the office. He's a sweet-toothed snappy dresser who can make a mean mojito and his propensity for quirky quips has established him as king-of-the-one-liners, frequently poised to offer cheeky titbits to conversation.

Neil
Marketing Manager

neil@blue-spark.org.uk

With an eye for detail, was previously the Colombo of technical services to food & drink companies, large and small.  Stands up for what is right and just. Ambition to teach Masterchef's John & Greg to eat with a knife and fork, it's a tough job but somebody HAS to do it!  Food Hero Jamie Oliver – he's just so beautifully naive to try Herculean tasks where cynics wouldn't even take the time to try, Bless ' im!

Nikhil
Director

nikhil@blue-spark.org.uk

Godfather of strategy and service provision. As well as a perpetual fountain of knowledge he's an excellent mentor and advisor, through rising to the top of his civil service career. With political savvy he always proves a great resource with proven solutions.  Enjoys playing devil's advocate (a little too much we think!).  Likes cricket..., no he loves it!
