My story

When did you join First?
August 2018.

What experience do you have?
Initially I trained as an Electronic Systems Engineer working on Defence related communications and radar projects. I switched to become a technical recruitment consultant back in 1992 and I now have well over 25 years experience recruiting in the IT and Engineering sectors. I’ve managed teams of Permanent and Contract recruiters delivering over 400 IT candidate hires per year and negotiated multiple supply agreements (PSL’s and Managed Recruitment service contracts).

What are your key responsibilities?
My main responsibility is to develop the First Recruitment - Information Technology brand. Existing Engineering customers already trust First Recruitment to deliver high calibre IT professionals and I will be taking responsibility for the delivery of IT recruitment services (Contract and Permanent) across the business to ensure that service quality is maintained and First Recruitment’s Information Technology brand and presence grows in the market.

What did you want to be when you grew up?
A fireman.

3 things you love?

Family, outdoor sports (Golf & Skiing) & socialising with friends.
