I have worked at First Point Group since 2010, initially recruiting telecommunication professionals mainly in the African and European market, but today my role is on a global scale. I lead a team of Account Executives to proactively resource engineers for our corporate clients within the telco industry.

In addition to my role, I support with business development for telecommunication vendors as well as providing recruitment services to companies, focusing on international contractors in mobile and emerging technologies on a global scale.

I really enjoy having the flexibility to meeting and talk to candidates from different parts of the world assisting them with either finding new jobs or change in career.

Having worked under Richard for over 18months, I cannot think of anyone of his ethic, attitude, aptitude and commitment in wanting to get the best out of me. His approach, leadership skills and mentoring ability helped me throughout my time, and ‘under his wing’ I have no doubt taught a lot of skills, (both employable and personal) which are down to him. A relationship most comparable to that of an ‘older brother’ I value Richard’s opinion and will no doubt call on him for support in all aspects should I need it. Definitely a friend and mentor for Life
I have been associated with Richard Ogunwumiju, at First Point Group for the past 6 months. He is very efficient, cooperative, and a pleasure to work with him. I am impressed by the quality, professionalism and timeliness of his work. Based on his work, I would rank him as one of the best consultants I have ever worked with. I highly recommend Richard Ogunwumiju to my friends and colleagues
