​Rory has over 15 years’ commercial recruitment experience across London, Sydney and Brisbane. He graduated in 2001 from Northumbria with an Honours Degree in French and Spanish before moving to Australia, working at Optus for a year before returning to the UK to begin his recruitment career.

He has always worked in the technology world and has spent most of that time delivering solutions and technology staff within the Financial Services space. He has managed some hugely complex and demanding accounts/clients throughout his career, while successfully starting and growing multiple businesses over the past 10 years of his management career. For now, Rory is 100% focused on bringing and expanding the Talenza brand to Queensland and building out the most admired IT recruitment company in Brisbane.

Outside of Talenza’s walls, Rory’s priorities in life have changed since becoming a father to two children as you would expect – his kids, along with his wife, are his biggest personal challenge, accomplishment and project at the moment. Want to know a couple of little-known facts about Rory? 1. He was once the subject of a 60 minutes documentary, and 2. He actually got a bagpiping scholarship to attend one of the most prestigious schools in Scotland.
