What would you say to your 18-year old self leaving school? 

Be bold, be brave, be kind

What's the best piece of advice you've ever been given?  

I have three if that’s ok! 

 - Be prepared to start at the bottom.  One memorable boss once told me that it's easier to run a business when you know how every piece of the engine works.  His role as boss was to know every job in his company and pull everyone together so that every cog could run at its highest and most efficient capacity. 

 - Don't be put off a job/industry because of what others think. If you are brilliant at it and enjoy it, that's all that matters.

 - Be yourself, believe in yourself and along the way also help others believe in themselves.  Most of the time it's our beliefs that stand in our way

What led you to set up Kosmos Recruitment? 

Some great believers who gave me the courage to found and establish Kosmos and a real desire to be able to spend quality time placing the 'right' candidates with the 'right' employees.  

A company that genuinely cares about it candidates and clients making the right decisions.
