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.


Harshaka Gamage – Recruitment Consultant

Been in recruitment for over 10 years covering mainly Driving and Industrial sectors, vastly experienced in Onsite Management. Plenty going on outside Invicta with my wife and son, Fanatic Cricket lover, originally from a country where Cricket is a religion, love playing and watching cricket.
