About me

I bring 20 years' recruitment experience, I am a Technology & Functional Talent Acquisition specialist (recruiting Tech, Digital / Mobile Marketing, Legal, Finance candidates) currently developing 'EMEA EXECUTIVES' search solutions by identifying, engaging and assessing exceptional executive talent in the EMEA & APAC regions who thrive within Top Global Technology corporations and VC backed High Growth Start up companies.

Previously, I held a divisional director position with one the UK's largest business process outsourcing PLC's, managing and growing their largest Financial Services client from beginning 2010 until end 2014 with a client spend of £18.m per annum and then since 2015 I project managed and developed an app for the hospitality sector, "iGRATM".

Relationship Building, Customer and Candidate retention experience, Reward, Performance, Speed, and Quality of hire is very important to me.

Some of the behaviours I searched for when interviewing executives: Highly customer centric, Humble, Solution orientated, Analytical skills, Diversity, Team Player, Resilience, Self-Motivator, Communication skills.

I like to work with companies that give workers enormous autonomy, encourage and enable collaboration and see open-source development as the future of innovation. I believe the greatest successes come from workers' own initiatives and their creativity is essential to the entrepreneurship that gets new businesses started and that sustains the best companies after they have reached global scale.
