I joined the Black Swan Group in March 2011 specialising in the finance & accounting space, recruiting directly into the Financial Services. I built up a strong candidate and client base across different areas of the sector including; retail & investment banking, investment management, brokerage and the exchange space.

In May 2013 I decided to specialise within the internal audit space and started the function at Black Swan. I chose this after some success in this area and saw the opportunity to build a new area within Black Swan.

In January 2016 I moved to Australia to set up and launch Black Swan’s Sydney office. This has been a great opportunity for me to start an office from scratch and to continue to take Black Swan global. Here I specialise within the governance space of compliance, risk and audit recruiting into all areas of Financial Services, including investment & retail banking, Investment management, brokerages and exchanges.  After a successful start I am excited at the opportunity to continue to grow our business here. 

Before recruitment, I was a golf professional for six years and in 2007 I became a fully qualified PGA golf professional after completing the three year PGA degree course, attached to the University of Birmingham.

In 2009 I moved to the Island of Madeira where I was the head golf professional at one of the golf resorts on the Island. I found this a great life experience and managed to learn Portuguese whilst there. I gained managerial experience there and assisted in making the golf club run as smooth as possible, along with teaching golf to the members and tourists. Interestingly I find my golfing background very useful for recruitment and I use it to help me to maintain and build my client base.
