Bringing a technical recruitment agency to Bristol has been a lifelong ambition which has been fulfilled by working with a fantastic portfolio of clients who trust and rely on Project Start to find the best talent.  You will find Clare either walking her new beloved dog Bailey or snowboarding with her son.

Chloe Villis

Senior Recruitment Consultant
Facilities Management and Technical Engineering
Chloe is Project Start’s Facilities Management and Technical Engineering Senior Recruitment Consultant, having joined the team in summer 2018 with 12 months industrial recruitment experience.

Despite being young in years, she has the natural ability to identify candidates for roles that have been tough for our clients to recruit for across the UK and with strong account management she has quickly established excellent relations with a diverse range of companies.

Chloe has more recently taken on a second role in the business and manages the company’s digital marketing activities. With nearly being a millennial, Chloe has grown up with the birth of social media platforms, so she has a great understanding of how it all works!
Chloe trained in fashion and textile design after completing school in Yate and as she is now a dab hand at making her own clothes and staying on top of the latest fashion trends, perhaps the company can ask her to make us some curtains for the office on her lunch breaks!

During her spare time, Chloe is either jet setting, adding to her travel diary or attending music festivals and concerts!
