How did I get here?
Every week we ask one member of the team, how did you get here?
This week we’re asking the big man, Peter Kelly, a few questions so you can all get to know him a little better (We’ll leave whether you’d actually want to get to know him up to you!). Peter Kelly is one of our co-founders and the CEO at imployable. He served as a Royal Marine for 10 years and after leaving the Marines in 2015 found him self highly qualified and unemployable. So read on to find out more about the man himself!
