I attended Noel-Baker Community School and Language College, where I did my GCSE's and A-levels and then had some time out of school and worked, before attending the University of Derby where I obtained a BSc (Hons) degree in Healthcare Studies.

My job title is recruitment consultant. My role is to recruit candidates who are seeking a career move or temporary work, and then recruit clients who require work and then present our candidates to fill the job role. This work also has the element of a sales role so it’s really varied and a new challenge for me.

What do you like to do outside of work?
