Meet our Senior Recruiters


Sean O'Sullivan

As the Managing Director of SOS Exec, I established the company after holding many senior positions in multi-national companies within the Building Products market.

My expert market knowledge and an acute awareness of client needs means I know the importance of placing the best candidates in roles and providing efficient solutions for clients.

In doing so, I consistently liaise with both clients and candidates to provide an unmatched level of personal service that means clients return to SOS Executive Search to provide their recruitment solutions. Our longstanding relationships within the industry means we are best-placed to create strategies on how to both attract and retain candidates who are committed to a career within your business.

Whilst adapting to the business needs of our clients, Sean has led the way in helping clients find talent within emerging parts of the market, including e-Commerce and Renewables. By keeping up to date with market trends and nuances, Sean has an informed perspective on the right candidates for the role.


Dawn O'Sullivan

I began working life in customer service at Redring Electric Showers, then progressed into banking and latterly into the education system.

I cofounded the business with my husband Sean in 2016 and following the early years of targeting recruitment (I landed our first role back in early 2017 for Graham the P&H Merchant!), I now concentrate on daily admin, accounts and legal aspects of the business.

I’m always keen to offer a balanced perspective on candidate attraction and retention and am adept at keeping candidates and clients positive!


Neave O'Sullivan

Having recently graduated from University, I utilise my analytical searching skills to find your ‘perfect candidate’. No job is too big or too small, and I use creative approaches to problem-solving to ensure the right candidates are matched with opportunities to take the next step in their career.

My results-driven attitude means I thrive whilst working to tight timelines and take pride in providing candidates with a career opportunity.

Jack Simon

Graduated with a 1st class Honours Degree in Outdoor Leadership Management. Alongside recruitment, I work as a ski, snowboard and Climbing instructor on the weekends!

As an individual with a host of career experience surrounding customer interaction, I consider approachability, communication, and passion for ensuring customer satisfaction to be my standout qualities!

Such qualities allow me to go beyond the CV, getting to know my candidates to assure they will make a perfect fit to the team; and that the role they are placed in is one that will be beneficial and progressive for both parties! 

I strongly believe in the idea that if you love your job, you’ll never have to work a day in your life! So, let’s connect, and land that job you’ve been waiting for!
