I joined Kiwi in June 2018 and haven’t looked back! I got to know Brendon and Kiwi in early 2018 through a previous role and instantly was attracted to working for the company. With basic recruitment experience already, I felt that Kiwi would be a great place to build on that experience and I was right! With a customer service and sales background, recruitment suits me perfectly as I enjoy building relationships with the candidates helping them find their perfect role and building a rapport with clients servicing their needs.

Outside of work I am very sporty. I have recently started playing Golf (badly) but since I could walk I have always played football, currently playing for Nyetimber Pirates and supporting Portsmouth. This natural competitiveness has helped me in my role by driving me to fill all positions i have whether it is a pub looking for a new permanent Head Chef or finding temporary bar & waiting staff for events. Being competitive throughout my life also gives me the passion and enthusiasm to grow the Catering & Hospitality desk and I have secured numerous clients which I will continue to do in 2019.

So far my highlights have been providing staff for events such as Goodwood Festival of Speed and taking candidates up to Silverstone Classics. Less than a month after starting I provided nearly 100 staff to Goodwood Festival of Speed and as a worldwide recognised event, I thought it was pretty cool being a part of it!
