“I never thought I’d have my own business, but I have always been extremely focused and passionate about recruitment. I also immerse myself into the local community having been involved in many other projects including Woking Chamber of Commerce, Woking Means Business and CMPP. I’ve recognised that hard work and networking, whilst giving back to the community truly does pay off. Having a team around me who share that same belief is something I’m incredibly proud of.”
