I began my career in the fast-paced world of hospitality, managing a very busy bar in London. There are so many fundamentals that cross over between hospitality and recruitment like the level of customer care, personal interaction and building bonds with clients and candidates. I believe these fundamentals have made the transition that much easier for me.
For sure there has been a big learning curve in terms of technical and market knowledge, but I have enjoyed this experience and feel I have now gained a firm grasp of the energy market. Every month that passes by I learn more and more and gain a deeper level of knowledge.
I now focus on the Power Generation market delivering profiles across a mix of companies and projects both in the UK and further afield. My vision for the future is simple, to become a subject matter expert and provide market leading solutions.
Outside the office I spend a lot of time with family and friends as well as devoting a lot of my free time on the golf course. Now that I’m no longer in hospitality I find my weekends and evening free again and this really allows me a great work life balance.
