  • About me

  • I recruit a vast range of roles, including senior level positions in operations or sales, general managers, operations managers, warehouse managers, sales managers, business development managers and account managers.

    I grew up in Portsmouth, and went to St John’s College then Havant College. In my spare time I love spending time with my dog and watching and playing football - I'm a huge Arsenal fan.

    An interesting fact about me is that I once lived in the US for 2 years for work.
