I started off my recruitment career back in the U.K. where I was tasked with mass hiring in the glamorous fruit and vegetable industry! Whilst it might not be the traditional route into creative headhunting, it certainly taught me the valuable skills required in the recruitment industry.
I was then given the opportunity to move to Dubai in 2012. I jumped at the chance to move to this exciting part of the world however, my fist role in the UAE might not have been everyone’s cup of tea – I lead a sales team in the pest control sector! A tough job, and I must say I saw a side to Dubai that not many others get to see. After a very successful and rewarding two and half years, I then made the move back into recruitment, and haven’t looked back since.
I love my job, I’m a creative person at heart and have always had a huge passion for the industry; I love the fact that I now spend my days talking to creative and artistic people. The industry is fast paced, the people are easy to talk to and with technology, the business is constantly evolving and changing.
Outside of work I love playing golf and to be outdoors, whether that be surfing, skateboarding or on my motocross bike. However, my career has always been my true passion and I’m now at home working in the creative industry.
