Serendipity - Creative & Design
August 2014 - July 2016 (1 year 11 months)
Setting up Serendipity, I wanted to be different and instill a back to basics approach: A recruitment business that prides itself on transparency, real understanding of our clients’ businesses, and outstanding service to both Employers AND the Talent we represent.

10 months in, and a lot of hard work, I was pleased to find out my company, Serendipity, were finalists for three categories at the Marketing Advertising Recruitment Awards 2015.

I parted way with my business partner in July 2016, he completely rebranded the company covering different sectors.

I continued working on a Freelance basis (self employed) covering Creative/Design & Production positions, before joining MCG.
