What is your top tip for candidates?

When interviewing you should relax and be yourself. It's common knowledge but we tend to forget in the nerves of it all. Interviews aren’t just for the client, a big part is for you to figure out if you want to work there in the first place. To quote my colleague Lee who expertly put it as this “you already don’t have the job, so don’t worry, you have nothing to loss”. Take comfort in that.


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

A house either near the ocean or mountains, both would be great!
