About Hugh

Firstly​​, how long have you been with Service Care?

I joined in April 2021.

​What roles do you recruit for and in which areas?

I work in the legal team recruiting for qualified and non-qualified roles across all levels, in the North of England and Wales.

Give us a brief overview of your professional background...

I graduated from the University of Exeter in 2019 and joined Service Care Legal in 2021. I have also worked for two large telecommunication companies in a customer service/retentions role.

Using only 3 words, how would you describe Service Care?

Dynamic, professional and supportive.

If you weren't working in recruitment, what would you be doing?

I'd really love to be a food critic!

What is your favourite quote or what is the best piece of advice you've ever been given?

Winning isn't everything, wanting to is.

Lastly, when you're not in work, where can we find you?

I like to go to the gym, scuba dive and eat out with my friends and family.
