What were you doing before you joined Douglas Scott Legal Recruitment?

I was working in Business Protection Insurance for a Manchester based leading insurance firm.

What are you most looking forward to in your new role?

I am most looking forward to a change of scenery and dealing with candidates and clients of different levels to help make a difference in their career paths whilst developing my own in a new sector.

If you weren’t in recruitment what would you be doing?

I would have most likely remained in the insurance sector and continued down that avenue wherever that would have taken me...

Tell us something that people might not know about you?

I used to play rugby (union), something that my Dad got me into, although I drew the line at getting involved in his other sports like rallying!
