I am hugely passionate about enabling organisations to drive decisions and obtain value from the use of Data, Analytics & AI.
The two biggest assets a business has are People & Data!
I speak to hundreds of Data & Analytics leaders every year, and every single one of them is facing similar challenges to you, in some way, shape or form.
That is why I created Orbition Group – a talent solutions business that not only provides very difficult to attract talent but..

Whilst I haven’t known Kyle long he has become my go to guy for BI / Data / Analytics - his passion and knowledge of the field is unrivalled amongst other recruiters. As well as recruitment Kyle’s passion for all things data are evident in his excellent podcasts and his LinkedIn activity. I can’t thank Kyle enough for helping me secure a role, he even managed to get me into an organisation where there wasn’t a vacancy but his knowledge and expertise made it possible. I’ve already given his name out to others and can’t recommend Kyle highly enough.

I'm absolutely delighted with the executive search Kyle has recently led for ENGINE. It was a pleasure from start to finish thanks to Kyle's knowledge of the market, network of people and hard work. The search was for an important senior hire within our data and digital transformation consultancy. Kyle was able to produce a short shortlist of people, all with the right backgrounds. I'd recommend Kyle to anyone hiring these skillsets and look forward to working with him again

Kyle's understanding of data and analytics talent is seriously impressive - he not only understands the technological demands, but also gets that the softer, knowledge-based skills are equally important.

In fact, it was through this podcast, that enabled me to take the next step in my own career. Kyle truly knows how find the best talent and connect them with opportunities and companies that make for a great fit.

Kyle is well connected in the Data space which means that he’s not only a valuable partner when it comes to recruiting (he “gets” Data which means less back and forth), but also when it comes to tapping into the wider community through the events and podcasts he organises.

Kyle thoroughly understands the market dynamics of the data industry and has helped me to build truly talented science teams. Kyle strikes exactly the right balance for a recruiter. Never too pushy and always quietly confident of his subject matter - data science and AI. I got to know Kyle as part of the data leaders of the North roundtable that he curated. Kyle brought together his network of regional data leaders and demonstrated his highly professional ability to help data thought leaders to influence the data science and AI agenda across the region

I was very happy in my role but Kyle's knowledge of the role and the company for whom he was recruiting, enthusiasm and the fact the he truly understands what's required of a data professional made me agree to be put forward. I now have a dream role at Booking.com for which I'm truly grateful to Kyle. Comms were excellent throughout the process and I was fully apprised of all developments. Kyle was honest and transparent throughout the whole process and I'd recommend to anyone seeking data people to get in touch with him

Amro Safadi - Lead Data Scientist - DataRobot
Orbition were recommended to us. Always a great start. I can only now recommend them to others myself. Kyle and Orbition are more than a recruiter; they bring their own deep sector expertise and knowledge to the party. For us Kyle was a guide through a challenging and nascent market getting to the real need, finding the right people and matching role, organisations and candidates perfectly. We engaged Kyle halfway through a process in which we looking to resolve a new and key strategic role in our business. It was important to us to get this right, and get it done.
Orbition did all of this and more. Kyle listened. He heard our requirements as we set them out. But more than this, he spent time to understand our objectives and our business a little more. He heard our requirements but recognised we needed something different. He guided us and corrected our course. He identified people with the right expertise and who would also fit us. Any company hiring and any candidate taking a step into the unknown, can trust Kyle and Orbition to look after them.
