Freddie Christophers – Client Services Executive
Freddie has lived and worked in Cornwall his whole life, (apart from 3 ski seasons spent in the French Alps.) He is a very proud Cornishman at heart as he loves the county he is fortunate enough to call home.
Freddie joined Unlocking Potential after spending 3 years working as a Recruitment Consultant for a specialist technology recruitment company, and previous to this he was a chef working in well-known restaurants and country pubs within Cornwall. From his time as a Recruitment Consultant Freddie has developed a real passion for working with businesses to help them develop and grow. He hopes to utilise this passion, along with his knowledge of the tech industry, to provide Unlocking Potential’s Cornish clients and business leaders with the best service possible. Freddie is extremely thrilled to say that he is providing a positive contribution to Cornish organisations and therefore Cornwall as a whole.
What inspires you?
Inspiration for me comes in many forms: from travelling to new places, meeting new people, hearing new stories. This is all very inspiring. But I feel something that inspires me the most is those people who are completely selfless, whose mission in life is to help others in need, through charitable work and volunteering. I feel they are the real unsung heroes of today’s society.
How do you switch off and relax?
Living in Cornwall you are never too far away from a beach, and there is something so calming about being next to the sea. My favourite place to go to wind down after a stressful week is the Helford. I will often go for long walks along the Helford Estuary with my girlfriend, stopping at the various beaches to take in the scenery. A summer evening at the Helford, coupled with a nice cold beer – it doesn’t get much more relaxing than that!
What is your guilty pleasure?
I am not sure if I can classify this as a guilty pleasure but, I am somewhat of a sport fanatic. As well as playing a lot of football, I have been known to sit and watch a variety of sports for hours on end, especially the so called “boring” sports like cricket, golf and snooker. So whether it’s: football, rugby, snowboarding, netball, clay pigeon shooting, professional drone racing or extreme fishing – I just can’t get enough! (Much to my girlfriend’s infuriation.)
