Ben Jackson

MSL: Senior Director

Ben joined MSL recently after a varied career, focussed around resourcing, talent strategy, diversity, employer brand and marketing.

Ben has a broad mix of in-house and supplier experience, and joined us from Deloitte, where he undertook contracts as Head of Student Recruitment (in which he delivered a radical transformation programme) and latterly Head of Early Years Talent and Social Mobility. After six years as Commercial Director of a leading recruitment outsourcing and employer brand business, Ben set up his own consultancy firm in 2014, working with clients as diverse as Network Rail, Capita and the Institute for Student Employers. He has previously worked with organisations such as Unilever, GSK, BT, BP, Ford, Mercedes, Prudential and Mars.

His experience gives him a unique perspective, understanding the dynamics of delivering results within both employers and suppliers, in high volume, high pressure environments. He has huge commercial experience, but the sensitivity to understand how to build mutually profitable relationships.
