Meet the team Monday!

Week eight! As our team grows, it’s a privilege for us to share with you their stories and expertise. Last week you met Simon Fowler, our Lead Pharmaceutical Recruiter. Today, we’re very pleased to introduce you to Andrew Corness, Co-Founding Director and specialist in fine, industrial and speciality chemicals. We will share a staff story with you every Monday, until New Year’s Eve.


Following a successful career in recruitment for the scientific, technical and HR industries, Andrew established Science Solutions with an old friend and colleague: Daniel Lloyd. As a Co-Director, Andy’s role has developed as our team has expanded. In his current position he oversees all operations for Science Solutions Recruitment.

Professional background

Andy has been working in the scientific recruitment industry since 2006. After graduating with a BSc (Hons) in Forensic Science, he decided the laboratory wasn’t for him and embarked on a career in recruitment. He worked for two of the leading UK corporate recruiters, as a recruiter and as a branch manager.

Early on in Andy’s career as a recruitment consultant he rose through the ranks to become a Business Manager; leading successful teams for one of the UK’s leading brands in both their scientific and HR divisions. He was head-hunted to manage the North and Midlands sector, for a large corporate scientific recruiter before leaving in February 2014 to establish Science Solutions.

Working at Birchwood Park

Andy is based at our Birchwood Park office, in Chadwick House. Birchwood Park, Warrington is home to 165 companies and over 6,000 people from large blue-chip organisations to new start-ups. Here, the workplace is more than just a building; supporting business success by providing the best working environment, in the best-connected location. Wellness weeks, outdoor boot camps, summer BBQ’s, film nights and allotments are just a few of the little extras that employees can benefit from.

Sport, family and Everton

In his spare time Andy mainly splits his time between his two passions in life: his children and his football team. Although unfortunately for Andy he supports Everton so only one of these things brings him joy! Over the past year he has also become a dab hand at DIY although he very much sees this as an enforced hobby rather than a choice.
