Q. Why/ How did you end up in recruitment

Whilst studying a Business/Psychology degree I was introduced to the field of recruitment by a HR lecturer. The idea of talking to new people each day and problem solving on their behalf immediately piqued my interest.  A year later, a good friend of mine who currently works at Ashdown mentioned an opening in a recruitment role and I jumped at the opportunity.

Q. Hobby/ interest outside of work

Anything outdoors that can be enjoyed with family and friends. Specifically, I play football all year round and golf whenever I get the chance. I’m also a sucker for a weekend getaway, camping, fishing and four-wheel driving!

Q. Field in which you specialize

My area of study is business administration which is quite broad and all encompassing. I recruit for roles in various commercial fields including finance, banking and tech.
