About 1485

Ask us about the name later.

Our key areas of focus are Food Ingredients, Nutrition and Capital Equipment, across all functions, throughout the UK and internationally.

Many businesses have a single internal recruiter for all appointments, and for good reason. Their recruiter understands the culture, the benefits and the challenges of working there. What great people tend to be interested in.

That’s what we think is important too, and that’s why we’re so thorough.

We don’t use fancy jargon or say that we’ve developed scientific processes. No clichés here either. We do the simple things very well, or we like to think we do. But that’s for you to decide. If you want to have a chat, get in touch and we’ll do our best to help.

Oh, and we’ve got a great office in an old converted mill, 5 minutes from Leeds-Bradford airport and overlooking the River Wharfe. A pretty nice place to work, we think.

1485. Doing what’s best for our customers, so everyone wins.

1485’s Food Ingredients & Nutrition division is led by Paul. Before building 1485, he studied Law and then began his recruitment career in 2008 – pretty dark times for the economy in the UK! He got a taste for it though, and built a new market from scratch in an established search firm – Food Ingredients.

Fast forward 12 years and he’s now worked with ingredients companies, flavour houses, VMS suppliers and sports nutrition brands across the UK, Europe and North America, predominantly recruiting in Sales, Marketing, General Management, Technical, Development & Supply Chain.

He loves watching, playing, and talking about all things sport, but especially football, rugby and cricket.

So, whether you’re a Technologist or an NPD Director, a Technical Sales Exec or a Commercial Director, a Buyer or a… I’m sure you get the idea. Get in touch and he’ll be happy to help, even if you just need a bit of advice.
