The best things about working with Orion Group: 
Where do I start?! Our culture is fantastic and unique. Orion Group’s 32 year history is also something I am very proud to be a part of and we genuinely care about our people, as well as our clients and candidates. Orion Group gives a lot back to the community and prides itself on its Corporate Social Responsibility policy. I still get a tremendous buzz from knowing we help so many candidates with their careers and support so many different companies in hiring their people, without which they wouldn’t be successful.   

In my spare time: I am a proud Father to an amazing 11 year old daughter. Sadly, I do like keeping up to date with business news and current affairs, whilst I also love a good film and whatever is trending on Netflix! However, most of all, I am a real sports fanatic with a passion for Football and Horse Racing whilst in true Orion Group fashion, I also enjoy the occasional game of Golf! Getting back to fitness at the gym is high on my agenda as is experiencing the great outdoors with some hillwalking in the Scottish countryside. Learning to play the drums is also on my bucket list!
