Having started a product desk at his old business, in 2014 he was swayed to join his biggest competitor with a ticket to Mind the Product Conference. Now a Few & Far’s “OG”, Mr Bastow has been through all the start-up highs and lows and has been integral in taking us from strength to strength.

“Worst things have, and will happen” “It’s hotter than the Caribean in here”
After six years of recruiting Product Managers across the UK and Europe, in 2018 Allen took a leap of faith to introduce Few & Far to the USA, where he’s been hands-on recruiting product teams whilst also managing a Data and Engineering recruitment team.
Allen has one child, his Harley Davidson motorcycle. Currently working all sorts of hours and traveling between the UK and US, he unfortunately has no time for anyone outside of fatherhood. Ask me to show you a man who makes sacrifices and I’ll show you, Allen Bastow.
Sweating in sub-zero freezing temperatures. Party trick
Sabrina has just returned from five months in the Alps where she spent her time skiing. Sabrina and her dog Henry come as an awesome recruitment duo. You will usually find them in the local pubs or parks, Sabrina’s distinctive Dublin accent usually gives them away.
Often heard saying
“Pass the wine”
Sabrina started her recruitment career when she moved to London in 2016, originally as a perm recruiter across Design and UX. But her high energy and quick personality (lack of patience) meant she quickly gravitated towards the contract market. She loves a chat and can usually be found on long calls to candidates and clients, talking about anything from design, recruitment, family to holidays.
Sabrina’s loves skiing! Seems as that can only be done for a few months of the year, she spends the rest of the year drinking red wine and visiting new countries. She also spends a lot of the time talking about her favourite place – Glastonbury Festival.
