Since graduating from university, I have lived and recruited in three different countries UK, Spain and South Africa. In each location having the opportunity to build an amazing network, develop my skill base and have a myriad of life experiences.
Being based in Cape Town gives you easy access to the entire Middle Eastern region and some of the fastest emerging markets in the world. The UAE is experiencing a technology revolution as they look to diversify away from their Oil & Gas influence- The investment within Tech in the Middle East is astronomical as they look to become world leaders in innovation.
I came from a background in Oil & Gas recruitment, so have naturally diversified with the market trends. When I first landed in The Cape and saw the levels of technology innovation, development and drive, I knew I had to be involved in the technology market and more specifically FinTech and application development.
Living in Cape Town for nearly two years means you will naturally get involved in outdoor pursuits and I’ve always been a sports fanatic playing semi-professional football from my time in Spain. The country has given me the opportunity to experience many new pursuits. In 2016 I ran with the CloudStream office at the Cape Town “run for peace” and have since begun serious long-distance running completing the Victoria Falls marathon in 2018.
As a main hobby alongside many “white collar” boxing events for local charities. You can even see me on You Tube!!! Originating from Manchester, I must also mention I am a big Man United fan and exclusively listen to Oasis.
