Name: Roland Seddon
Position: Managing Director
Any claims to fame? Spent 3 days with the Australian touring Ashes team in 1997 when they were playing Gloucestershire in Bristol (I was at Uni). Bowling at the batsmen before the and after each day to give them practice. (Got Ricky Ponting, Mark Taylor and Jason Gillespie out).
I am also a distant relative to Robin Hood (well, Robin of Locksley but that doesn’t sound as good).
Phrase you’ll most likely to be heard saying: “Think of it from their point of view” when getting consultants to think about their interactions with both candidates and clients.
How do you recharge? With 3 kids between 2.5 and 7, there’s no such thing! Although I’ll never turn down the sun, a beach holiday and any associated water sports.
What superpower would you like to have? Definitely flying. I get impatient not being able to get places quickly when things need doing.
What characteristic do you value above all else in others? Honesty.
Dislikes: Fake people, my things not being where I left them, people not listening.
Five people (excluding yourself) you’d invite for dinner (dead or alive): Harrison Ford, JFK, Keith Lemon, Ian Botham (or Lawrence Dallaglio) and Sienna Miller.
Eastenders or Coronation Street? EastEnders although I’m a Northerner (originally).
Brown sauce or Ketchup? Neither. More likely mayonnaise
Takeaway or cook at home: Work nights home, weekend takeaway.
Stay in or opt out of EU? I haven’t looked into it enough yet but at the moment, stay in. Simply because I am scared of consequences I don’t know enough about at the moment.
