Since launching Omni in 1998, Robert Leggett remains a dynamic Chairman who’s as enthusiastic about the growth and development of the business and his team as ever.
It’s through Robert’s vision and determination that Omni became the UK’s leading Recruitment Process Outsourcer and Recruitment Transformation Consultancy.
He started the business at the age of 26 with a £30K bank facility and a simple desire to change the way recruitment was managed in the UK.
It was Robert’s early career at American Airlines and his subsequent forays into recruitment which shaped his view that if you are good enough and want something enough no one should hold you back from achieving great results.
When he’s not coming up with new ideas to achieve better results for clients or ways to enable his team to enjoy a better work life balance, Robert loves spending time with his family and escaping to his second home in Portugal.
Appointed as Managing Director in 2014, Martin joined Omni as Business Development Director and brought over 20 years’ experience of driving advanced performance, growth and profitability at both Reed Managed Services and Vision Security Group.
After embedding success and subsequently taking the helm, Martin has devised plans to triple Omni’s size within three years by building a reputation as the world’s most innovative and strategic resource partner.
Through continually improving our proposition and introducing a host of new value-added services, Martin aims to deliver sustainable advantage to all clients and make certain that Omni attracts, selects and engages with only the very best talent.
A bona fide advocate of brand guardianship, Martin strives to ensure Omni achieves client trusted advisor status through the consistent delivery of a first-class service whilst making every candidate journey a positive experience.
Martin is a keen golfer and can be found mastering his swing on his favourite courses!
Officially Omni’s first employee, Stephanie has been involved in the business practically from day one and her drive to exceed service delivery targets is unsurpassed.
Her experience working in a tough recruitment environment really bought into what Robert Leggett was trying to achieve with the business.
Stephanie now leads a talented team of Account Managers and is the spearhead behind Omni’s delivery team. Her unwavering customer focus has shaped the ‘service over sales’ ethos that sits at the heart of everything Omni does.
Stephanie is married with a young family. Unfortunately she had to stop playing her beloved netball a few years ago, her competitiveness and need for perfection extending beyond her working life, resulting in one injury too many!!
