Meet the Team

Izabella Edwards - Managing Director

Izabella established Edwards Employment Solutions in 2018 after a career spanning more than 15 years in recruitment working for national and local brands. She wanted a company that put people, rather than numbers, at its core, and we think she’s done just that with Edwards.

“I don’t see Edwards Employment Solutions as work as it’s my passion. We have a great team that all share my ethos for the business and it’s a brilliant environment to work in.”

When she’s not at work, you’ll find Izabella with her young family, dogs Hugo and Rolo or down the stables with her other passion, her horse Lucy.



Ian Eyre – Business Manager

Ian may be the newest member of the team but certainly isn’t lacking in experience, with over 20-years in the industry, we know the day-to-day running of the office is in capable hands. Making the move from a Fortune Global 500 company, he is excited to join an independent growing recruitment company and be able to make a big difference. 

Ian said: “I absolutely love placing people in new jobs. Particularly the sheer appreciation you get from candidates, it is a real buzz and nothing beats it! I’m Chesterfield born and bred, albeit for 2 years living in Canada, so I am really looking forward to working with and helping local people and businesses.”

When he’s not at work, most of his time is taken up with sports and football and gymnastics classes with his 8 and 11-year old son and daughter.



Dan Townsend - Senior Recruitment Consultant

Dan has 10-years experience in recruitment and was actually with Edwards Employment Solutions when the company launched in May 2018. A temporary 18month hiatus into Sales has confirmed Dan’s love for recruitment and now he’s back for good! 

He said: “The variety is what makes recruitment exciting – no two days are ever the same. The best bit about my job is being able to help people literally at their wits end and then their appreciation at what you’ve done in find them a new job…it’s a great feeling!”

When he’s not at work it’s all football, football, football for Dan and stressing over his beloved Sheffield United! Walks with his partner and dog, Frank the Shih Tzu are what got him through lockdown.



Priya Sachania - Recruitment Consultant

Priya has many years’ experience in the industry and has undertaken a variety of roles, fromCorporate recruitment for HR Manager and IT roles, to learning and development and customer service and sales roles. And she loves it. Recruitment is her dream job. 

Priya agreed, saying: “I always wanted to get into recruitment. It’s fast-paced and I love it. I have a passion for helping people and providing them with a job. Nothing beats the feeling of knowing that you have helped someone pay their bills.” 

When she’s not at work loves cooking and describes herself as ‘a coach potato’. Who doesn’t love to binge watch a good boxset though?


Samantha Morley - Recruitment Consultant

Our call centre recruitment specialist, Samantha Morley knows contact centres inside and out as she worked in one as an inbound agent for many years. So, if you want any advice – as a client or candidate, then Samantha is the one to ask. 

She said: “I’ve been there, done that where call centres are concerned so I love the fact I can really help people. I speak to so many different people each day in my job and I love it.”

When she’s not immersed in the world of call centre recruitment, Samantha is a Sheffield United season ticket holder and a regular supporter at their games – when allowed. 



Tia Lowe-Fowler – Recruitment Co-ordinator 

Having had a number of roles across a variety of sectors, Tia joins Edwards through the Kickstart Scheme actively seeking an office-based role. Previously working at bars and, more recently, dog grooming, Tia is keen to provide great customer service and help effectively match candidates and employers.

She added: “I wanted a career change and this role in particular appealed to me and was a good fit as I wanted more of a commercial role. I have settled in really well with everyone here and I am looking forward to carrying on and really progressing here at Edwards beyond the Kickstart programme.”

Outside of work, Tia enjoys spending time with friends and is a big foodie with O-Tokuda being one of her favourite places to visit in Chesterfield.


Adam Chapman – Recruitment Co-ordinator

Joining through the Kickstart programme, Adam has always had a passion for helping people reach their goals. With a previous position coaching tennis at Beauchief Tennis Club, he’s no stranger to a customer/client facing role and wanted to take that over to something more commercial.

He commented: “I’ve always enjoyed helping people and, with this role, you have the ability to make a really big impact on someone’s life helping them find the right job. I’m excited to start working on the phones and really put my people skills to use.”

When he’s not at work, Adam is a keen gamer and one of the only Sheffield Wednesday supporters in the office!


Ellie Hartshorn – Recruitment Co-ordinator

With previous roles in nursery and social care, Ellie decided she wanted a complete career change but was still passionate about helping people. After learning about the opportunity to retrain with an apprenticeship at Edwards Employment Solutions, she decided to go for it.

“I was looking into a career change for a while but I love working with, and I am really passionate about helping people and wanted this to continue, so this role felt like a perfect fit. I can work here in the office environment and still talk to people on a daily basis to try and ensure they get into the right positions for them – it’s a really interesting sector.”

Outside the office, Ellie has more than enough to keep her busy with her three-year-old little girl keeping her on her toes!
