About me

The course is the culmination of 20+ years of working as a software developer, leading and managing teams as well as years of managing international recruitment teams.I have seen both sides of the fence in the game of technical recruitment. I have seen every mistake developers make during the job search, application and interview process. I want to help you to avoid those mistakes.The course is for individuals and groups. I work alongside organisations such as coding bootcamps as well as developers just looking to take the next step in their career.
