A bit about me:

I have been in the staffing industry for over 25 years. Quite incredible really and during this time it has transformed beyond all recognition. I still love it as much today as I did back in October 1996 on my first day at a company called Abacus Recruitment! In my previous role I built a business from nothing to a £15,000,000 business with offices in London and Singapore. Now at Inventum, I am going to do the same all over again. But this time with a total focus on ED&I by helping change the workplace for the better. Wine, food, kids, tennis, golf and gym (and wife) fill my world outside of work.

What ED&I means to me:

Having been in the recruitment industry for so long, I have seen first-hand behaviours which would shock you. I am pleased that the dial has shifted significantly since the 1990s but there is still an enormous way to go. And I believe we, at Inventum, can do our bit to make the workplace more inclusive and diverse. Every company we help makes me so proud. Every candidate we place who comes from an underrepresented group make me so happy. And we are just at the start. We are going to help thousands more and that is very exciting!​
