Hailing from South London, I attended Dulwich College. Always having had a keen interest in Ancient History I graduated from Liverpool University after studying Ancient History and Archaeology where my dissertation focused on Roman Military history.
Having played rugby from an early age I remained in Liverpool after graduating where I was contracted as a semi-professional Rugby player whilst working in sales for a construction company.
I returned home to London in the summer of 2015, having taken time out after an injury to travel. I joined the company on the Black Swan Graduate Scheme in August 2015. After a period of three months where I rotated across a number of desks within the firm I was placed on the specialist Risk Management recruitment team.
The Risk Management team has coverage of Asset Management, Banking and Hedge fund spaces and recruits into Market, Credit, Liquidity Risk as well as Information Security and Business Continuity. It has been a very enjoyable and insightful experience building an understanding of Risk Management across a variety of disciplines.
Outside of work I enjoy travelling and socialising with friends and plan on making a full return to the Rugby pitch in the near future.
