Alex Flory

Recruitment Consultant

​Alex began his SoCode journey in October 2021.

Currently working on an array of roles within the Engineering market; from quality engineers in the biomedical sector to acoustic engineers for electro-audio companies.

What lead you to SoCode?

"My professional journey started in London where I worked at a fashion start-up. I learned a lot from those around me about how to scale a small business while working to tight budgets. Hungry to further my understanding of marketing I leapt at the opportunity to work for a marketing agency in Birmingham as an account executive. This is where I learned how to structure marketing strategies and work confidently with clients to fulfil their business needs.

I moved on to work with exciting customers in the B2B space before focusing my efforts on clients specifically within the defence sector, tailoring them marketing and lead generation campaigns. For the last three years I worked at a mental health charity in Birmingham. I spent the majority of my time growing the charities digital presence and gained an understanding of how to really effect change by using digital marketing.

When covid struck, I came back to Suffolk (my home county) to work from home and after getting curious about life as a recruiter, I took the plunge and started speaking with SoCode about a career in the industry. I have not looked back since!"

Where would we find you outside of work?

"I am a very active person so after work, weekends and in my spare time you will find me out and about! Rowing on the river Cam, cycling around the lanes of Suffolk, playing tennis in various places or eating copious amounts of food with my girlfriend at various markets!"

Interesting fact about Alex:

"I ran 70KM in an ultra marathon. I walked across the Sahara desert and raised 100K doing so with a number of armed forces veterans. I am half Thai. I can eat my bodyweight in chocolate biscuits."
