I’ve always been a spontaneous, adventurous person and after travelling the world for eight months after University I decided on the Public Relations industry due to my love of writing, connecting with people and coming up with creative ideas and stories. That’s not particularly spontaneous I hear you cry! Well after six months of working in the PR hotbed of Birmingham, UK, and not really enjoying it a friend who lived in Dubai said; “why don’t you move here, it’s awesome?” So I did.

That was in October 2008 and I haven’t looked back since; working on some of the biggest global brands — launching the Atlantis hotel and driving Audi A4s around Yas Island Circuit being definite highlights — while enjoying the never ending sunshine (still haven’t quite managed to get a tan though) and attractive lifestyle Dubai has to offer.

After seven years working in the PR industry, I was looking for a change and Communications Recruitment provided an attractive and logical next step, as is it what I know and what I am passionate about! What’s more, it is a fun, vibrant industry filled with creative and talented people, who I can relate to.
