In addition to tendering for large recruitment projects Compaq and Gateway, I was also involved in the delivery of the recruitment projects on an international level.

I am also a qualified HR Professional and have worked as HR Manager in the Telecoms Industry. More recently I have worked as a Manager in the VAT division of a global tax recovery business. I have taught English to senior executives in many organisations, developing bespoke business English courses for this purpose.

I hold a MA in French and English from Trinity College (Cambridge) Dublin, and as a Final Year Student won the French Government Scholarship to pursue a PostGraduate D.E.A course in comparative studies at the Sorbonne Paris IV. I also hold a MA in Strategic Human Resource Management from Coventry University.

I have lived and worked in France and Italy for over 16yrs where I have taught English to senior executives from Companies such as Wella Italia, Ferrobeton, Papest France,SVB Camping through the Chambre de Commerce de la Haute Marne as well as il Centro Culturale Bresciano.
