My Advice

Believe in yourself, if you have done the work in terms of training, background and experience all you need to do is focus. If you're working with a recruiter, trust them to understand you, give them enough information to understand who you are so that it allows you to have confidence in what they are doing.

My Background

After studying Marine Studies at PlymouthUniversity, Anthony devoted a year of his life to sailing but decided to try his hand at a more corporate life in IT recruitment. In 2000, the tech bubble burst and after 5 years Anthony retuned to sailing professionally where he had a varied career representing Ireland in sailing, at World Championship and Olympic levels. He returned to the recruitment world in 2018 where he moved into the legal market.
