Be-IT continues to grow apace.  We're taking on a lot of talented people.  Last week we introduced you to Sinead, this week it's the turn of a young (OK, not quite so young) man who has spent a long time in recruitment, but principally overseas. However, it's much easier if he tells you about himself...
