Describe your job in 3 words
Challenging, frustrating, rewarding.
Tell us something we don’t know about you?
My family sometimes call me “an anorak” because of my interest in natural history.
What would be your dream job?
Something animal-related likely.
Who would you most like to swap places with for the day?
Traffic cop, I’ve seen so much dodgy driving go unpunished.
What is your guilty pleasure?
I’ve been known to sing along to the cheesiest of pop songs
What is your favourite thing about working at Corvus?
The autonomy to just get on with things and the fact that I have to unlearn large chunks of what I’ve been doing for years.
What are your Top 3 book/podcast recommendations?
I don’t really read that much but for a bit of escapism; Lee Child / Jack Reacher books are a pretty safe bet.
What is most the most sought-after skill in your industry today?
What do you think the future of recruitment looks like?
I think that over time a lot of the guess work and gut feel will be removed from the recruitment process, it’s too big an investment to get wrong.
What is the one thing you have always wanted to do?
Skydive (it's on the list)
What is your top tip for today’s professionals thinking about changing jobs?
Take your time and do your research.
