We are happy to announce that we have strengthened our team with two new appointments to our Manchester office.

The new starters, Tony Zyda and Connor Blankley, have joined Cast UK’s Training Academy and will be working in the Logistics sector.


With extensive experience working here in the UK and overseas, Tony Zyda is a former Logistical Operations and Warehouse Manager, with 22 years military experience in Her Majesty’s Armed Forces.

Connor Blankley comes to Cast UK from a recruitment background, with a passion for the industry already established. He joins the Logistics South team, led by Gary Robinson, to work with clients throughout the South West.

Commenting on his experience of the Cast UK Training Academy, Tony said: “It’s great to be part of an ambitious team who are sector specialists. Having been a candidate in the past, I have been on the receiving end of poor service from other agencies. With my logistics background, and great support from my team leader, Gary, I am really excited about my new career and providing excellent recruitment services at Cast UK’s high standards.”

Connor added “I joined Cast UK because the career opportunities & progression available here are clearly mapped out & attainable. So far I have really enjoyed the in-house training programme. We are covering each topic in depth, with input from team managers & senior consultants, ensuring that we get maximum benefit from peoples’ skills and personal insights gained over years of experience.”

Wayne Brophy, managing director of Cast UK, added: “Having recently moved into our new larger offices at the end of 2014, we are really happy to be expanding our teams through our Training Academy.

We recognise the importance of providing an environment that both supports and challenges ambitious employees embarking on their career with us. We welcome the opportunity to work with Tony & Connor, developing their skills and careers within the recruitment sector.”
