Jason Roulston

Managing Director

​For Jason, BLACKROC is the company he always wanted to create after becoming a Business Owner at 23.

Jason's focus within BLACKROC is Senior Executive recruitment, business operations and strategy, and group business development.

“Our philosophy is simple - we're a people-first business. We're agile and we embody the right values that make a modern recruitment business prosperous.”

Jason started his career in IT recruitment almost straight from high-school; 2021 marks a decade in the IT & Digital recruitment industry, and 8 years as a company owner. He’s started businesses from scratch, successfully exited those businesses, built recruitment teams in different markets and hired almost 100 Recruiters. Along the way, he’s made plenty of mistakes but has grown from them.

Ultimately, Jason gains job satisfaction from seeing teams succeed and become highly regarded industry professionals. He has a passion for finding and nurturing superstar Recruiters.

If he were to describe the characteristics of the Consultants at BLACKROC it would be, “curious by nature, good energy, live by solid values and have a genuine interest in creating good business.”

Away from work, Jason enjoys reading non-fiction books and anything that can be tracked on Strava - cycling, running, and his early morning walks. He’s also fascinated by the stock market.
