Our Executive Search Services

Our founder Joby Read has worked in sales and recruitment his entire career, working his way up from a classified sales executive in  media sales to the commercial manager for a leading consumer publication. Following that he switched to recruitment and has worked at every level within the sector until now launching Zero Surplus.

As a result he has 20 years experience both working in the commercial sector himself, and recruiting buying, sales, marketing & procurement roles throughout his time with Brand Recruitment. After offering most of these as a bolt-on service to his marketing services, he is now spearheading Zero Surplus as a standalone entity after recognising the opportunity and need within these sectors.

As a result of having successfully filled such roles as Head of Buying, Director of Procurement, Head of Global Sales, and Business Development Director on a retained basis for a range of technology, FMCG and e-commerce retailers, you can be assured that Joby and Zero Surplus can deliver results at the highest level.

Joby’s previous long term client list includes international brands and organisations such as Dunnhumby (Tesco), Konica Minolta, Rakuten, Valspar, Sanofi, Bayer and Grafton Merchanting, not to mention many large UK based brands in specialist manufacturing sectors.

So if you have any requirements for any executive level business development, buying or procurement roles, please contact Joby directly for a confidential chat on 01223 868 649 or via email on
