Roxy Grey

Talent Principal

After finishing my education on the West Coast of South Africa, I moved to the UK for a 1-year gap year and 10 years later I was still living there!  I lived in the beautiful Cotswolds for 8 years and in Bristol for 2 years and had an amazing time.  You just cannot beat British humour, right?!

I started my career in recruitment in the UK in 2010, I worked for a very fast paced high turnover temping solution agency.  I learnt all about the importance of building strong relationships with my clients and candidates alike, managing the process, expectations and most importantly having fun!

In Bristol I joined a fantastic specialist Technical agency and learned everything I know about recruiting Developers, I focused on was placing Developers into everything from startups, fintech, corporate insurance businesses and FTSE 100 businesses around the South West of the UK.

I absolutely love what I do and learning about the projects my clients are working on honestly excites me. I pride myself on really getting to know my clients, so that when I am representing them to local talented individuals I can get them just as excited as I am!

After an amazing time in the UK, I decided I needed to get back to my home roots, one’s heart will always have a magical connection with Africa that cannot be broken.  

Here at CloudStream I am proud to have brought my experience in hiring talented Developers into the European market to Cape Town!  I am working with Software Engineers, Product Owners, BAs and QAs across South Africa and placing them into Development teams in start-ups, the majority of the work I do is building development teams up from scratch.

In spare time I love going to live music gigs, spending time on one of Cape Town’s beautiful beaches, hosting dinner parties and shopping!
