This venture into Higher Education is complete career change for me. Prior to undertaking my undergraduate degree in 2011, I worked in asset finance for nearly ten years where I learnt a lot about the finance and leasing, but also developed skills in leadership and management, sales, team-working and customer services. I also learnt a lot about the coroporate world, and about myself.

Despite being successful in my early finance career, I was not happy there and decided to take the plunge and return to full-time study. Since then I have never looked back and simply love what I am doing. My professional CV, as well as more information on some the positions mentioned above, please visit my LinkedIn profile.
