Meet the team

Vickie Doogan – Director

For my sins I have been working in one role or another in this wonderful world of recruitment for 20+ years! As a mum and wife of 2 sport fanatics life outside of Invicta is pretty busy, never too busy though for my love of holidays, prosecco & cleaning. Motto : Today is a gift, that’s why its called the present.





Richard Russell – Finance Director 

Away from the demands of Invicta I genuinely enjoy trying to keep fit, although as time has gone by my running has given way to the slightly less punishing activity of cycling. My wife and I have completed some memorable bike rides in Europe, Central America, Africa and most recently in Vietnam / Cambodia – it really is a great way to see a country. Latterly my two-wheeled transport options have been increased with the addition of a Ducati Scrambler which puts a smile on my face every time I go for a ride.



Adam Smith – Manager

Been in recruitment for over 18 years covering a variety of sectors across Temporary and Permanent including Driving, Construction, Industrial, Hospitality/Commercial, Engineering etc. Plenty going on outside Invicta with my wife to be and 2 children that keep me more than busy in addition to captaining my local cricket club.





Melanie Carlow – Branch Administrator

Being organised fortunately comes very naturally to me, just as well with the Invicta Payroll every week! Coupled with 2 busy boys at home there is rarely any time left for me so when I do get a quiet moment I enjoy trying out new recipes and gardening. I have been with Invicta from day one after a very long career as an executive PA.



kingaKinga Kwater – Senior Recruitment Consultant

I have been working within recruitment for over 20 years and I have enjoyed every minute of it. I am responsible for attracting and retaining candidates for temporary or permanent positions within Transport & Logistics, Airfreight and Industrial sectors. My favourite thing about my role and responsibilities is that I genuinely believe we offer a service that is differential; from our results-based focus to the degree to which we care about our clients business helping them function well and grow further. In my spare time I enjoy long walks with my dog Harvey and discovering what the world has to offer by taking long & short trips with my family.
