So one thing you should know about me is I don’t like talking about myself. Despite 12 years as an expat and many great life experiences behind me and I still never know where to begin, but let’s give it a shot.

Firstly, I love to travel. I’ve lived in Dubai twice, with a stint in Singapore in-between, and then back to the UK during the pandemic. I’ve ticked off visiting 30+ countries over the last decade and I have Whistler and Lake Tahoe at the top of my favourites list.

So yes, if I wasn’t in recruitment, I would probably be a snowboarding bum living in Canada. I’m a bit (a lot) of an adrenaline junkie. Anything that is fast-paced and fitness-driven, sign me up. Snowboarding, motocross, wakeboarding, Hyrox…golf, the list goes on.

And lastly, when I’m passionate about something, I won’t shut up about it. Which leads us very nicely onto the business segment of ‘Meet Jack’.

“Jack, I’m launching Aspexx, you want in?”

When Pete reached out to me with the proposition for Aspexx, I was in the Mallorca visiting family for the summer wondering what my next move was going to be! The universe answered. It took me less than a minute to say ‘yes, let’s do it mate’ and that was that. Over two years on and we haven’t looked back.

In hindsight, it was inevitable I’d end up here at Aspexx and based in the UAE. I’ve been incredibly fortunate to work with some of the best creative, design and digital agencies globally during my career. But now I get to do it on my own terms with inspiring people.

I’m pretty fortunate that Pete and I share the same values and vision for Aspexx too. We saw a gap in the market for experience-led, design-driven recruitment that was honest, quality and connected to the best in the industry. So we went for it.

A year in and now we’re partnered with some of the best brands and design consultancies across Asia, the Middle East, & Europe, helping to attract the right talent and grow teams globally. That’s my day job, and I absolutely love it.

Having the autonomy to try something new. The freedom to travel for work and play. Ultimately that’s what helps me tick both personally and professionally.

So to wrap up, as you can probably tell I’m not really one for comfort zones and that hopefully comes through in helping me connect people and companies together with ambitious opportunities. Hoping that 2024 throws me in the deep end again. Just watch me keep swimming.
