About Luca

Luca joins GS2 as a Delivery Consultant and has been with us since the end of July after previously working within the HSE space at an established recruitment organisation. Luca is experienced in recruiting across a range of sectors, primarily helping individuals within construction and infrastructure secure the best opportunities. 

As someone able to name all the countries in the world, their flags and place them on a map, Luca surprisingly wanted to be a Marine Biologist when he was growing up, but has now decided to stick to something a little more land based!

As an avid football fan (a Liverpool supporter if you're asking) and an avid player, Luca reached the quarter finals of the National School Football Tournament and when he was younger previously played for both Reading and Arsenal. 

Luca is half-Spanish and has a lot of family living in the South of Spain, where he spent a lot of time growing up during the Summer Holidays and still regularly visits now.
