Team Welcome: John Hitchen


We are pleased to welcome John Hitchen to the Strive team!

John is joining us as a Territory Sales Manager, focusing on the UK and Ireland. 

To better introduce John, we asked him a few questions - his answers are below, enjoy!
  • Why did you want to join Strive?

Strive are an extremely exciting company which have pin pointed an excellent market full of like minded individuals. It’s not often the field you recruit for mirrors your own way of thinking or have such similarity in traits. I’m also up for the challenge of working with the top 1% of sales individuals and new tech starts ups looking to go through hyper growth.


  • What are your personal goals? 

To disrupt the UK & Ireland market offering clients more than just your stereotypical recruitment offering, to become a valued partner of tech start ups who need the very best.


  • What does good service look like to you? 

Clear and transparent understanding of job requirements, trust with clients and the ability to tell our clients about the candidate market.


  • An interesting fact / anecdote about yourself 

I used to do radio adverts when I was a teenager, my radio career never kicked off which is a shame because I had the face for it!
