Meet the Craft team
Dan - Founder
Dan Crowder knows what's what, who's who and how to find what you're looking for across the north of England's creative sphere. His love of the industry and philosophical approach (he even has a degree in Philosophy) gives him the edge when it comes to connecting the right people with the right people. Helping move the creative industry forward – this is Dan's chief motivation.
Fionn - Freelance Consultant
Fionn has a degree in Design and after earning her chops in corporate recruiting, landed herself the perfect role at Craft where she indulges her love of design and helps other creatives build fulfilling careers. She's a talented footballer, whisky aficionado and has travelled four continents. Competitive to the bone, Fionn doesn't like to lose. Exactly the sort of person you want on your team.
Tom - Creative Consultant
A movie buff to the bone, Tom’s passion for design and tech spans gaming, brand and film (don’t get him started on Anime!). He knows a thing or two about recruiting tip-top designers too. Taking pride in placing people in jobs they love, he gets a kick out of learning more about the thinking behind their work. As a former Apple Genius, he’s a super-helpful guy to know, whether you’re looking for a new role or not!
Aidan - Lead Resourcer
With a degree in textile design, Aidan has always had a passion for craft and creativity. This has given her a solid foundation in the world of design and inspired her to become an active member of the creative community in Leeds. When she’s not busy being the most organised person at Craft, she’s renovating her house, hiking around Yorkshire, or reading a good book.

- Simon Forster, Founder, Robot Food
Dan has taken the time to really understand our business and culture and makes the effort to suggest only the right candidates. He’s a genuine character and a rare breed in the world of recruitment as he’s playing the long game to build a successful company. I enjoy our regular catch ups and his service offers real value.
- Chris Marshall, Director, Onstate
Craft have an uncanny knack of unearthing the best candidates on the market. They've also taken the time to understand our business. With most recruiters the truly quality candidates are few and far between, but with Craft I think we've ended up interviewing every one that they've put forward.
