Getting to know Lee
What’s your name and what do you do?
I’m Lee Curry and I’m a Senior Marketing Recruitment Specialist at GB Solutions
Where were you born?
I was born in Hillingdon, Middlesex and was brought up In Berkshire. We moved to Gloucestershire last year. This is where my wife’s family are from and it felt like the right thing to do for the next stage our of lives together.
I honestly thought I was going to be a professional footballer – one of the good ones. I know loads of young boy’s dream of this, but I actually thought I was going to do it
What did you do before GB Solutions?
I was a Marketing Executive for a company based on the King’s Road, London. I loved the hustle and bustle of working in London and the ease of everything being on our doorstep. Life is completely different now we live in quaint Cirencester but everything’s just come together at the right time.
Describe a day in the life of yourself
I get up with Stanley my Dachshund in the morning and we’ll have a little walk out. It’s great having that quiet time in the morning. (He has his own Instagram account if you want to check him out (@stanleythedash)
I then head to work and have recently been making use of the flexi hours that GB have introduced, so I leave early and get to the gym – this is a new thing for me. I’ve married a beautiful woman, so need to make sure I don’t let her down and get too soft around the middle… !
I really enjoy playing sports and am a huge West Ham fan – something I take a lot of stick for in the office on a Monday.
My family and I are real ‘foodies’ we love cooking and eating and spend a lot of time in the kitchen trying out new dishes. We have friends over quite often and just love cooking new and exciting dishes for them.
Brace yourself…..the happiest moment of my life was marrying my wife, Olive (YUK)!!
We got married earlier this year (take a look here) and it was just the most perfect day.
If you could interview anyone from your life living or dead who would it be and why?
Cliché, but it probably has to be David Beckham. I think he’s a great role model. For someone they wrote off as ‘stupid’ he’s achieved so much in sport and other business ventures I really think I could learn from him. Plus, when I watch any interviews with him, I think he’s a genuinely nice guy.
How would you like to be remembered?
Kind, generous and funny #guilty
What are the most important lessons you’ve learned in life?
Be kind and always share! Not always the easiest things to do these days, especially when ‘banter’ is rife, but I really think just being nice about people and to people makes the world a better place to be for everyone.
What’s the one piece of advice you’d give to a job seeker
Always dress smartly. First appearances are essential!
