Going from School at 16to the big wide world in the late 80’s on a YTS scheme, I tried out a few trades. I became an apprentice Electrician and I remember my boss coming to the site looking pretty flash – all suited and booted in his BMW. This made me think, I need to get an office job. So, I temped for Norwich Union for a few months.
My real break came when a heating business took me on as a service co-ordinator. A proper old-school RAF storeman called George took me under his wing and I never looked back. I soon progressed to Service Manager and eventually Director of the Maintenance Department of another Heating Company by the age of 22. This instilled in me a good business grounding.
Following the business closure, at 27 I walked into Reed recruitment agency, and they introduced me Positive Selection. Recruitment became my working passion which I’ve continued to enjoy 25 years down the Road.
I like to think that I have learnt a lot over the years and here at Serve Talent, we believe that my and my colleagues’ life experiences are the foundation to the success of our business.
