Our team

James Roberts

Managing Director

James set up 14fiftyseven following 13 years running our sister company Progressive Travel Recruitment. He specialises in recruitment up to executive level. With 14fiftyseven, he is determined to make people’s lives easier by providing a new flexible kind of household staff, from nannies to butlers, and housekeepers to lifestyle managers, and wants to move away from the upstairs-downstairs approach to personal staff. He has excellent connections on every continent and a client-focused business sense.

Tony Macdonald

Operations Director

Tony had a varied travel industry background prior to 14fiftyseven, starting his career with British Airways, then managing call centres for TUI and STA Travel. At 14fiftyseven, he looks after operations, marketing and branding, contracting, advertising, websites, candidate sourcing and accounting. Tony is also responsible for the development of our overseas offices.  Outside of this, he spends a lot of time travelling abroad.  In the UK, he can usually be found in a field, caked in mud, with Angus, his beloved black Labrador.

Susie Osborough

Client Director

Susie has led the life that many of our clients are endeavouring to juggle. Her career started in luxury fashion, with frequent travel, managing international partnerships. She came to 14fiftyseven having sold her hotel reservation company and vowing never to work in recruitment. It was James’ and Tony’s shared values that changed her mind, and she is now a hands-on director. Her experience of juggling work, family and life aids her refreshingly honest approach to both clients and candidates.
