What type of music are you into?

I’m into most music and I can listen to pretty much anything except for heavy rock and stuff like that. I’m a fan of people like Frank Ocean, Dermot Kennedy, Lewis Capaldi etc etc but my favourite type of music is the older stuff. Crooners!! Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin and Michael Buble with the modern take on it!

What are your hobbies, and how did you get into them?

Playing football (real football, you know the one with the round ball 😊) – I have been playing basically since I could walk. Getting out and kicking a ball relieves any stress you might have had throughout the day.

How do you deal with work stress?

I just step away from the desk and get a bit of fresh air. Give myself 5 minutes to focus on anything else that isn’t work and then get back to it.

What was your first job?

I worked as a milk man with a family friend delivering milk through the night. Sounds horrible but it was actually a bit of fun.

Which has been more valuable in your career, your education, or your experience?

Definitely my experience.

Is there a quote that motivates you?

“You find out life's this game of inches, so is football. Because in either game, life or football, the margin for error is so small. I mean, one half a step too late or too early and you don't quite make it. One half second too slow, too fast and you don't quite catch it.” – Any Given Sunday

What is the best career decision you have ever made?

Obviously moving to Fuse and getting started with my career in recruitment!!!
