After Graduating from North East London Polytechnic in Computer Studies he took up the position of a Business Analyst designing systems for the newly introduced PC and managed bespoke systems application developers.

One was Micro Sales and Marketing learning how to bring the PC into the business world and another when the Internet was emerging taking off on HTML and web design where he also became a Principle Certified Lotus Professional (PCLP). From this background he entered the world of development and e-commerce. He has designed and built many systems from end to end. Louis has spent 20 years as an I.T. contractor in companies such as HBoS, Orange, Carphone Warehouse, Scottish Widows, Deutsche Bank, Royal Liver Assurance, Booker and many more. He was asked to join Computer People the then leader in I.T. contract recruitment, to help open up the Scottish Market and later moved to Computer Search and Selection as a I.T. Contracts Manager where he was always in the 100% club.
This experience along with the rise of the internet lead him to develop the first internet recruitment system, CV-Online, based on the I.T recruitment work flow.
