Vince Ward

Operations Director

Having originally trained and qualified as a professional chef, Vince worked in a number of local restaurants in his hometown in Oxfordshire before embarking on an HND course in hospitality management at Brighton University.

Following graduation, Vince then spent the next 5 years working as a manager within the high-volume branded restaurant sector.

Vince first moved into recruitment with a leading national recruiter in 1997, managing temporary chefs and front of house personnel.  He made the transition into permanent recruitment in 2000 and has spent the last 17 years recruiting all levels of management within the business & Industry and commercial contract catering marketplace, becoming one of the most established and connected recruiters in his field.   Vince joined Collins King & Associates in September 2018.

At the weekends Vince can be found with one of his 4 children either at his local rugby club, on a hocky field or as the family taxi!   But when he does get a spare moment to himself you will find him listening to his extensive vinyl collection with a glass of whiskey.
