Here's what he loves about ESP: ''What I have enjoyed the most about my time at ESP is working around great people day in day out who have given me the support to progress in my career and fulfil my personal goals outside of work. What really excited me when I joined the company as a recent graduate was the opportunity to engage with senior leaders of the tech industry and have a positive impact on their businesses.''

Liam has been with us since 2017. His favourite memory at ESP is: ''The annual Race days are always a highlight for me – whilst they can get quite messy, they give the team a good chance to let their hair down and hang out with each other without the pressure of work above your head.''
