Tell us one interesting thing about you?

I believe in treating everyone how I like to be treated. Unless they prove otherwise.


What are your interests?


If you could ask anyone in history any question and be guaranteed an honest answer, what question would you ask to whom?

I would ask Jesus what is the meaning of life?


What are your favourite book, film and song/piece of music?

Great Expectations (Charles Dickens)

Legend (David Gemmell)

My music taste is too eclectic to choose one... I like Classical to Eminem


When you were a kid, what job did you dream of doing?

I wanted to be a detective or a scientist


What would be your perfect holiday?

Somewhere on a tropical beach with the cool sea breeze to bring that perfect temperature. Not miles from civilisation so I can go dancing but close enough to nature to get away from everything. Mombasa... Seychelles... Argentina...



If you could have one super-power, what would it be?



Which three people, dead or alive, would you most like to spend an evening with?

Ghandhi, Bruce Lee and Jesus


What do you most enjoy about recruitment?

Helping improve peoples' lives by finding them a better job


What is your top tip for candidates and/or clients?

Candidates - be yourselves and remember the company wants to offer you a job, you just have to show them why.

Clients - be open minded and look beyond the CV as this doesn't represent the whole of the candidate.


If you won the lottery what treat would you buy yourself?

A house
