I love my job as I learn something every day from the all the different people I meet. The cherry on top is helping people find their next career move and providing a service that I hope my candidates and clients value and would recommend.
Interests outside of work
I enjoy the outdoors and spending time with friends. Everything from football (or soccer as you call it here in Australia) to kayaking, if it’s outdoors I’m keen!
"Chris was highly professional in his management of the recruitment of a senior CFO. All expectations were very clearly articulated from the outset and throughout the process. Based on a thorough examination of the business requirements, a shortlist was very efficiently delivered and all candidates presented met expectations in terms of experience, skills, and presentation. The interview process was equally well managed, with a final selection and appointment being made in a highly effective timeframe. Overall, both the client and candidates were very well managed and communicated with, throughout the mandate."

"I worked with Chris Ballinger from Richard Lloyd on a number of temporary hires within a 3 year period. I found his knowledge of the job seeker market insightful and he was very responsive to my requests that had to be turned around quickly. He regularly kept in touch during all the new hires' time with us and was genuinely interested in how they were going and if they were a good fit. All in all a great experience and I have recommended him to other businesses and job seekers as well."
