Job Title: Recruitment Consultant
I’m a huge fan of Celtic FC and still watch most games, despite moving to England when I was eight. I love playing Call of Duty at lunch or in my down time at home (which is something a lot of people in the office probably share). My favourite meal would be pizza and a cold beer. I’ve got a cat called Pixel. Does that about cover ‘About Me’?
Favourite Game: Fallout 3
Favourite Game Series: Fallout
Favourite TV Series: The Office
Favourite Film: Saving Private Ryan
Favourite Book: The Grand Theft Auto Cheat Book
Favourite Song/Band: Strawberry Fields by The Beatles
How did you get into games as a hobby?
Like most people who get into games, I had a parent who opened the door to it for me. My Dad had a Sega Mega Drive (Sega Genesis to any American readers) that I loved, and I spent a fair few hours on that. I regularly play FIFA against people in the office at break time, but I have a love-hate relationship with that franchise.
What’s your career background?
When I left college I went straight into call centre work, before moving into consultancy a few years later. This naturally led me to Aardvark Swift. It allowed me to tailor the skills that I’d learned throughout my working life to the hobby I’m passionate about.
What’s an average day look like for you at Aardvark Swift?
I come in early, have a bowl of Coco Pops and a coffee. After I’ve fuelled up and I’m ready to tackle the day we have our morning stand up meeting. This is just so each of us know what we’re doing over the coming hours and it cuts down on duplication of effort. Once that’s done, I check in with my candidates to find out how I can best serve them. I either call or email, dependent on the candidate’s preference and needs, and we develop a plan of attack together to get them in front of studios around the globe.
What do you love most about your job?
I’m a huge fan of the industry so getting to work in it and talk about games is perfect. I’m in my element and could easily talk about games forever.
Favourite memory so far?
The end of year trip to Hamburg in June of 2019 was such a good time. A celebration of all of our hard work over the year and just a nice way to unwind after a busy 12-month period. I always enjoy travelling and this was somewhere gorgeous that I’d never been to before.
