Stevie Buckley


Who am I?

Hi. I'm Stevie Buckley and I help companies with talent stuff.

These days I'm extremely busy running Honest Work but I do occasionally take on some part-time advisory work.

I started life many years ago as a web developer however that career didn't last long as I missed interacting with actual humans and had absolutely nothing to do with the fact that I had a destructive obsession with blink tags.

For the past ten years, I have been helping startups and tech companies improve and scale their hiring process.

NICE things people have said about me because social proof


“Stevie is one of that elite breed of team-builders who are empathetic to those whom he hires and the companies for whom he hires. In action, this magic sensibility leads to the construction of rock-solid, happy, productive teams and successful startups.”


“Stevie has helped me tremendously in my business. Over the years, I have asked his advice whenever I was unsure how to recruit, and it's always turned out to be exactly the right thing to do. Both in terms of getting excellent people on board, and feeling morally the right way of doing it.”


"Having Stevie is like having a big fuzzy blanket that you can throw over your team."

Paul Bowsher - Technical Lead at Government Digital Service

"Stevie has a fantastic knack for spotting talent and forging real connections with people. I've had the pleasure of both being hired by him and having him help build my team. He goes out of his way to welcome and help onboard new hires, ensuring his friendly face is one of the first they see.
He's definitely one of the most helpful people I've encountered in my time in the Tech industry, and all round a really nice guy. I've worked with him twice, and wouldn't hesitate to do so again."

Brad wright - CTO of Verve

"He's ok I guess."
