Chris Dickenson

Co-founder of The Advocate Group, Chris has been in recruitment for over 12 years working across all of the sectors The Advocate Group specialises in.

Using search and selection techniques throughout his career, Chris wanted to create a company that could apply these bespoke techniques across all key hires in a business.

The Advocate Group's name came from the brand advocacy ethics Chris has always encouraged in his teams and embedded in his way of working. Creating The Advocate Group has allowed for these ethics to become a business standard.
