Tell us about your role at Circuit?

Here at Circuit, I look after all things Cloud/DevOps related. This includes AWS, Azure & GCP. I also cover the Identity and Security space.

What 3 things do you enjoy most about what you do?

The relationship you can build with candidates is something I treasure. Hearing people’s stories from all different backgrounds is so intriguing to me.

Learning something new every day is great! There is so much information to absorb in the tech industry and I enjoy the never-ending process of educating myself. And the best part? Placing people into the next challenge in their career!

What do you enjoy the most about working at Circuit?

I love the team here at Circuit. I enjoy the social aspects of team bonding and end of quarter celebrations. We have such a tight knit office, and someone will always manage to put a smile on my face.

Tell us about your proudest professional achievement?

You never forget your first! Making my first placement will always stand out. From that point on its business as usual. But my first placement gave me the confidence to push on and achieve more.

What advice would you give to people looking for a new role?

My advice would be consistency is key. Blocking out a couple of hours every day to apply for roles, make connections, call, message, reply. Making this a consistent habit will increase your chances of landing your dream role. Treat it as a part time or even a full-time job. You must put yourself out there, don’t be shy.

What do you enjoy doing outside of work?

Anyone that knows me will know how much I love playing Football (Soccer) and watching sport. West Ham is the team I was born into and never really had a choice. Other than hours upon hours of consuming sports content, I love a Sunday roast with my beautiful family followed by our weekly quiz.

Which of the Circuit values resonates most with you and why?

Transparency for sure. Being transparent with your candidates is incredibly important. I believe it is one of the strongest assets about the circuit team. We will keep you in the loop every step of the way. The amount of depth that Circuit consultants go into to provide as much information as possible to our candidates is remarkable.
