How do the company values of Insight match up with you personally?
I believe in working smarter not harder which falls in line with Insight’s company value of being ‘driven’! I also believe that adding a personal touch when working with candidates and clients goes a long way and is indicative of Insight’s passion around being ‘caring’.

For me success means being able to enjoy the finer things in life without a credit card.

When striving for success I believe in working hard and having fun whilst doing it!
What’s the best advice you have for anyone looking to get into recruitment?
In recruitment you have to be resilient so I’d always encourage people to keep their head up and crack on! Understanding the market and keeping to your core values also goes a long way when looking to get into recruitment.
Give us some Insight Into yourself on a personal level – when you’re not working, what do you enjoy doing?
I recently got engaged so my days are now spent planning a wedding! I spend most of my time with my fiancé just enjoying life however I have recently bought a piano so who knows, maybe in a year or two I could be the next Frédéric Chopin!
