About Josh

Josh founded GS2 after selling his previous recruitment business and has worked within the industry since 2010. Initially starting out predominantly within IT recruitment, Josh moved on to HSE and HSEQ where he progressed through the company, completing the sale of the business in 2020.

Josh founded GS2 in May 2022 with the purpose of connecting those that believe in leaving the world better than they found it, focusing on the rising need for positive social and environmental reform.

Growing up Josh wanted to be a footballer, however, he gave up on the professional dream after a year at the age of 19 - he wasn’t good enough! Josh did, however, continue to play semi professionally for over 10 years, making it to the first round of the FA cup two years in a row, live on BT Sport!

Josh has two children, a gorgeous curly haired son called Hugo and an incredible step son called Oscar who suffers from a condition called Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA). 

Josh regularly raises money for SMA charities by taking part in various activities, more recently completing the South Downs Challenge, the London Marathon and The Cleveland Way.

It is innovative, brave and disruptive by design. With over 100 races in some of the world’s most iconic cities, it continues to break boundaries and records alike. Born from humble beginnings, the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship is now home to some of the planet’s most talented and daring drivers supported by world leading manufacturers such as McLaren and Porsche. Formula E, however, has a unique purpose bigger than racing itself. It was founded to counteract climate change through accelerating the development and adoption of electric vehicles; pioneering the race to road technology that is at the cutting edge of innovation. Its mission though has since evolved, recognising the wider social and environmental benefits it can deliver through driving sustainable human progress and better futures for all. As the world’s first sport certified Net Zero Carbon since inception with multiple leading initiatives that support both people and the planet, it serves as an example of how high-performance sport and sustainability can powerfully coexist. With a blend of world class sport, sustainability and scintillating entertainment, it inspires and thrills a global fanbase. Now racing in more cities than ever before with the world’s fastest, lightest, most powerful and efficient electric race car, the GEN3, Formula E is delivering a unique fusion that many didn’t know existed or thought was even possible.  Working With Formula E At Formula E, we’re unique. Founded to be bold, ambitious and innovative, we have electric energy in our DNA. We’ve therefore created an environment that supports our colleagues as we continue our mission so that everyone can reach their individual potential while being part of a close-knit team. We’re curious, brave and thoughtful; having a relenting desire to push boundaries both at and away from our races. With a mission that is far greater than producing world-class events, we value both humanity and the planet just the same. It’s why we believe that work should be fun, meaningful and impactful, valuing the importance of supporting each other and how success can only be achieved as part of a wider collective team. Using the spectacle of sport, we are sending a powerful and meaningful message to help alter perceptions and speed-up the switch to electric mobility. We also operate as a testbed to push the development of new technologies needed for an electric, low-carbon future.
