Meet The Team

Tom Bayliss CertRP
Director
Co-founder and Highbury Recruitment Director Tom Bayliss began his career on the Financial Future's trading floor as both a Broker and Trader. After the floor closing in 2000, Tom traded his own money for a period of time before working for a hedge fund in both London and Amsterdam.

Returning to the UK as a Business Development Manager for Global Posters, he later branched out on his own, opening a retail unit in Camden specialising in music & art.

Upon moving to Norfolk, he purchased a bar and restaurant with his father, which they successfully ran together for four years.

Falling quite by chance into recruitment, Tom quickly fell in love with the industry and whilst working for a local agency alongside David Errington, both felt they could draw on their previous career experiences to build a company that could bring a more personal approach to both clients and candidates alike. An idea which came to fruition in February 2015 and has flourished ever since. Helped by an experienced and passionate team, Highbury Recruitment has grown into the consciousness and highly thought after agency that both Dave and Tom had envisaged.
Upon moving to Norfolk, Tom quelled a longtime desire to be involved in the hospitality industry. He purchased a bar and restaurant with his father, which they successfully ran together for four years. Falling quite by chance into the recruitment industry, Tom has used all of his previous experience to progress through the ranks. He believes he has found his calling with the recruitment industry, drawing on his vast commercial, retail and hospitality back ground to bring the service that he feels both client and candidates deserve.
