I used to think ‘recruiter’ was a dirty word…

I started my career in the media industry, working for Sky Sports and then the BBC, as a producer and a journalist. I fell into PR, ending up as Group Account Director. Throughout these roles I developed a skill set and a knowledge base that suited recruitment. I have been on the agency side, interviewing candidates and sifting through 100s of CVs looking for great candidates! All this prepared me for my current position at MCG.

I love working with creative, ambitious people who demand a challenge. The communications sector is a dynamic industry with highly intelligent, driven people. They are goal orientated and that is how I consider myself. It is a great feeling to place a candidate, and an even better feeling when they succeed in the role.

Recruitment itself is a fast moving, competitive industry. It requires dedication, perseverance… and a bit of luck. I like to think that I have all three but I am always learning and always have more to learn.

MCG Associates has a great reputation in the industry and when I decided to make the move, they were top of my list of companies to work for. This made it an easy choice and I am delighted to work for such an established, ambitious company.

I love living in the melting pot of cultures that is Dubai.

If I’m not travelling, working or watching sport... I’m probably drinking tea.
