Gerard joined VIQU in July 2020 as a recruitment consultant, his first job since leaving the world of rugby behind him. Gerard was a professional rugby player for 8 years, going through the London Irish academy, before being promoted to the 1st team. He spent 6 years there, playing in Premiership and European Cups, winning the JP Morgan Sevens and Greene King Championship. Gerard moved to the Dragons in Wales playing in the Pro 14, before finishing his rugby career at Coventry Rugby Club.

Gerard decided to move into recruitment because he liked the idea of helping others to achieve their goals. When Gerard watched VIQU’s ‘The A Team’ video, he knew VIQU was the right recruitment agency for him!

When Gerard’s not working, you’ll find him coaching his local rugby team, playing golf or walking his dog – Rocky the Weimaraner!
