Jonathan O'Brien ​

Associate Director 

Having fallen in love with the hospitality sector from the beginning of his working life, Jonathan spent 9 years working in various venues and restaurants before moving into hospitality recruitment.

Prior to joining TONIC, Jonathan had amassed 9 years of recruitment experience. During this time, he developed a widespread network across the UK, compromised of strong relationships with hotels, bars and restaurants, contract catering, sporting and gaming venues. Jonathan’s approach combines recruitment with a 360° consultancy service to his clients.  

Jonathan’s lengthy experience – both directly in hospitality as well as in recruitment for the industry – has allowed him to develop a particularly firm understanding of the UK hospitality sector.

Outside of work Jonathan enjoys trying out new bars and restaurants – particularly sampling cocktail menus and making full use of the Guinness tap, as well as spending time with his daughter.
