In what areas are you specialised?
Banking & Financial Services recruitment
To be honest, I think most people do not know what to expect when they first step into recruitment and I was no exception. Now that I have 6 years of experience to look back on, I can confidently say the more I’ve learnt, the more I love what I’m doing.
Initially, I started working within our UK Marketing team, in a short space of time I naturally gravitated toward dealing with candidates and clients and haven’t looked back since. It’s given me the opportunity to gain valuable exposure across two different markets (UK & UAE) as well as develop my personal skills; You become resilient, inquisitive and you learn how to effectively communicate with many people.
Finally, I love being able to make an impact and have an influence on our global business’ partners. Finding the right talent is greatly rewarding for the company as well as the candidate.
Tell us about your background:
Brought up in Rochester, Kent, I was eager to begin working soon after completing college. My first job in a sales role was exciting but I didn’t find the job satisfaction I was after. Luckily, I was introduced to Mark Williams and the rest is history!
I’m a lover of sports, especially boxing. Music, and I have a deep interest in the financial markets and investing.
What inspires you?
To name a few, I am inspired by others and the things they create. I love listening to entrepreneurs who come from humble beginnings speak about their passions, hopes, dreams, successes, and their failures. Jack Ma, the founder of the E-commerce giant Alibaba is a good example.
Someone that you admire
My mum, because she's a great example of determination in the face of hardship and has taught me many principles, such as the value of hard work and having strong self-belief.
Your personal motto
There are only two days in the year that nothing can be done. One is called yesterday, and the other is called tomorrow, so today is the right day to love, believe, do and mostly live."
