Rob Joslin

Founder and Director UK

Rob Joslin is a Founder & Director of Capstone. Based in London he is responsible for the Development & Project Management team in the UK; a sector where he is firmly established with over 12 years’ experience. Rob now focuses on senior level retained search assignments for leading consultants, developers, investors and funds.  

Upon graduation from Oxford Brookes University he spent a year in the property industry before joining a large real estate recruitment company. He worked closely with the owners, Dominic Judd & Mark Farris, who later became Capstone’s non-executive directors. This experience gave him the appetite to co-found Capstone, and develop a dynamic real estate recruitment offering lacking after the recession in 2008. He hasn’t looked back since.   

Rob feels one of the positives about being a Director at Capstone is working with his team; developing & mentoring consultants, from all walks of life, to be the best they can be. If Rob isn’t in one of London’s meeting rooms interviewing candidates or out of the office meeting clients, you will hear him leading from the front on the sales floor.
