Like Fran I grew up a keen swimmer and could swim comfortably swim without a float by age 15… However, according to the Team GB committee, that wasn’t enough to make the Olympic team. After that crippling knock back, I dusted myself down and began my sales career. I have worked in a number of different industries including telecoms, insurance and charities before finding my feet within recruitment. I love talking to people from different walks of life and exploring different perspectives; recruitment gives me a platform to do that. Outside of work I am a season ticket holder at Manchester United and have a dog called Eric, who takes up most of my time!
