Terry Mallin

Recruitment Director

Terry is one of the leading manufacturing recruiters in the UK and is the exclusive go-to recruitment contact for selected manufacturing companies.  

Initially joining the Royal Navy as a Weapons Engineering Artificer, Terry served on HMS Ark Royal (Aircraft Carrier) and HMS Vanguard (Nuclear Submarine) looking after and maintaining all weapon, sonar and radar systems. During his service Terry completed his Foundation Degree (FdEng) in Electronic Engineering at the University of Portsmouth.

Always being entrepreneurial, Terry decided to leave the RN and join a small growing insurance business in a commercial capacity, a vital cog in the wheel, Terry helped grow the company from 4 staff to 110 staff within a 4 year period. Being heavily involved in all business matters and recruitment this was a key time. The business was then sold and the opportunity presented itself for Terry to combine his engineering background, recruitment experience, commercial and business growth experience.

Joining the recruitment industry, working for one of the largest companies, Terry was tasked to establish and lead the manfuactruing sector across Scotland. Over the next 4 years Terry became a leading consultant within the sector.

This led to Terry starting  Bonfire Recruitment in April 2015, combining all his gained experience and entrepreneurial flair to grow a successful, ground breaking, recruitment business based on reputation and word of mouth alone.

Outside business, Terry is a keen salmon fisherman and has managed one of the top salmon fishing camps in the world on the River Varzuga (Russia) for three springs. His other passion is motorsport, currently building and preparing a Subaru Impreza to enter into the 2018 Scottish Rally Championship.
