After graduating from Durham University with a degree in Politics I moved to London and began work as a recruitment consultant. After a year I decided the world of recruitment was not for me and started my career within consulting.
Prior to joining Berkeley I spent over 7 years at Accenture where my time was spread over a wide variety of clients and functional areas. My early years were taken up helping deliver a large IT implementation for a government department and then moving to ‘client side’ to help assess how policy changes would impact system operations. Following that my focus was on biometric systems where I worked with government departments and airport operators in implementing passenger biometric systems to help aid the enjoyable experience of processing through immigration. Consulting really did give me opportunities to work with great clients and on wide ranging projects.
I joined Berkeley in November 2012, attracted by the variety of work on offer and the ethos of the company being completely different to the larger consultancies – working collaboratively, in partnership with clients to deliver the right results.
Outside of work I live in west London, enjoying the sights and sounds of Notting Hill and wherever possible partaking in watching (but rarely playing) sport, mainly golf (playing), rugby (watching) and cricket (both).
