Kyle is Head of Research within the Finance Practice at Eton Bridge Partners.

He has a dedicated approach that ensures no stone is left unturned when it comes to market mapping, candidate identification and headhunting and enables our consultants to present clients with shortlists of the highest calibre.

Proud moment

My proudest moment was selling everything and moving to the UK without much of a plan; a month later I started a new job at Eton Bridge Partners, had somewhere decent to live, and made some good friends along the way.

Childhood aspirations

I wanted to be a sports physiotherapist growing up. I enjoyed biology at school and playing sports. I had a lot of sessions with a physio after a bad sports injury when I was younger and the idea stuck with me.

I was recently contacted by Kyle for a suitable role and throughout the process, his communication skills were excellent – way beyond the norm. He obtained very useful client feedback which is quite rare and a breath of fresh air. I would not hesitate in recommending Kyle and Eton Bridge in the future – everybody I have dealt with at Eton Bridge have been first-class.
