About me

With a background in statistics and development, I’ve spent the last 15 years in recruitment working with and placing software developers. Having been involved in over 1,000 placements, I now spend my time working with clients and the Nixor team to better understand the development community - in which we interact with daily. The result? A network, system, feedback mechanism, events and training that are all designed to support both the candidate and client through the hiring journey. 

A key passion of mine lies in dissecting the recruitment journey in order to help our clients attract the best talent - whilst saving them time and money. This has led to the development of our bespoke 12-step model, which has allowed me to deliver hiring and retention training for a host of SMEs such as Grant Thornton, RB and the London Stock Exchange. 

Outside of the office, I’m a dad first and foremost. I love the “freedom” you get from being able to act like a kid when playing with a toddler. I also spend my time running, going to the gym and watching most sport. But as a Nottingham Forest fan, I’ve developed a resilience that comes from the heartbreak of supporting a team that used to be good and just aren’t anymore.
