This involves the import and export of goods via air, ocean & road all around the world.I regularly recruit for a levels of freight forwarding including freight coordinators, operations managers, sales and business development managers.

    I grew up in Waterlooville, a suburb of Portsmouth where I also went to school and college. My further education took me to Southampton University where I studied music performance and came away with a 2:1 BA (Hons) Degree.

    I own a VW Camper Van and frequently visit Cornwall where I love to go surfing and camping with friends and family. I also enjoy playing tennis and golf and generally being outdoors. My interesting fact is that I once met Keith Richards from the Rolling Stones whilst working in a country pub in Chichester.
