Our Team

Our Team

Ed Henderson

Founder & MD

They call me 'Fast Eddie'... having a modern day understanding of the student market, I'm always looking to innovate and bring new ideas to the table!

Simon Jacobs

Founder & Director

With my keen eye for marketing, I initially noticed that the student market was being heavily mistreated and underestimated. When we started Uni2 I knew we were onto big things.

Rob Atkinson

Founder & Director

I'm a qualified lawyer but since variety is supposedly the spice of life I got involved with Uni2 and haven't regretted it yet.

François Keon

Property Manager

I make sure students enjoy their time whilst respecting the property. Expert at hand holding and counselling. They call me The Thinker.

Kieran Chappell

Lettings Manager

It’s my job to find students for your houses. I “get it gone”. As a Notts County fan I can see the positive in any situation.

Mike Chen

International Director

As a Chinese national who studied in England I focus on the growing international student market. I’m a great cook and make a mean pie and chips.

Lu Wang

China Boss

I am based in China and lead Uni2 operation over here. I help Chinese students to study in the UK.

Amanda Larkin

Finance Guru

It’s my job to keep the books in order and make sure the books balance. I’m a qualified accountant with big 4 experience.

Grace Dawson


Front of house and admin ass kicker, I keep everyone in check.

Caleb Mierkalns


I’m the man about town on the corporate Vespa, zipping around filling rooms.
