I was intrigued by the IT sector as technology is constantly emerging. I learned the ropes so to speak in IT recruitment with Greythorn for 3 years which helped develop a deep understanding of clients needs to secure the best available talent on the market, in 2010 I had an exceptional opportunity to join Solas Consulting Group as a Principal Account Manager and working to my strengths to go above and beyond expectation for clients and candidates alike, whilst keeping myself knowledgeable in emerging and trending technologies especially with the presence of .Net in Ireland. In my spare time (the little I have with 2 young children ) I enjoy F1 and a good BBQ.
