The Storysofar..

Bolt was founded by Alex Lockey in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, UK.

I ͛ ve always had a passion for working with people. In my earlier days of business I recruited for the FE & Training sector for a multi-sector agency before moving on to run a successful e-commerce business and then return to the education and healthcare recruiting sectors.

After much success tackling new frontiers and running successful teams, I feel like I ͛ve seen the great, the bad and the ugly of education recruitment.

Hence, I founded Bolt.

My goal is to make hiring an honest and value adding process for all involved. This means honest, valuable and stress free for both employers and talent in the FE, HE and Training sectors.

So far, we ͛ve been able to innovate to the point where we deliver industry-leading results.
