The best thing about working in Orion Group:

I am proud to work for a truly global company that continues to invest in and empower its employees to ensure everyone in the organisation has the opportunity to contribute positively to our shared objectives.


In my spare time…I have a young family so spare time is extremely limited! That said, I enjoy moderate exercise balanced out by a sprinkle of socialising with friends and family as often as time permits. I am an avid Rugby Union fan and follow the mighty Harlequins, while also supporting Beckenham Rugby, our local community club.
