What’s really important to you?
Asides from friends and family, the most important thing to me is having motives. Doing something which allows me to make a positive impact in other people’s lives. As well as, travelling, playing sport and of course a PINT OF GUINNESS!

What is something quirky about you?
I have never gotten chickenpox nor do I plan on getting them anytime soon.

What motivates you about the recruitment industry?
We put people into jobs and coach people through their careers, which plays a huge part in their lives. Ensuring that they understand what they are going into and making I love working with creative, similar minded people and recruiting for such a diverse range of brands. Being a people person, I also really enjoy the social aspect of helping Manufacturing and Technical professionals on a day-to-day basis and the rewarding feeling of partnering a great brand with serious talent!

Your teammates would describe you as…
Energetic, positive, creative, always up for an adventure. They’d also mention my crazy laugh.
