I came to New Zealand from the UK in 1986 and have worked in recruitment since then. I am as passionate now as I was then about what I do. I have seen huge changes in our industry in particular with technology but it’s my view that the ability to understand and communicate with people that is the most important aspect of what we do. I currently work on the flexible desk and that means providing temporary resources to clients and helping candidates into temporary opportunities. 

In the kitchen I am
Totally in my element. There is nothing better than feeding the people you love. My favourite recipe is a melt in the mouth chocolate hazelnut tart (email me if you would like the recipe). Not only is it easy to prepare but it’s totally yummy to eat!! It also fulfills my chocolate desires.

At the weekend I love
To hang out in my oldest baggiest jeans, lying on the sofa watching movies when the weather not so good. If the weather is great you can’t beat a walk around the waterfront from Mission Bay to St Heliers.

My slogan for life is
“You get back what you put in”

A book that really moved me is
The Bronze Horseman. I read a number of years ago and it is the only time I have I reread the last chapter three times!! It moved me beyond words. A love story in the truest sense.

If I had a superpower it would be
To fly! Soaring high above the mountains and over the oceans like an eagle would be freedom at its best!
