Raff’s Biography

2 December 2012. Almost three years ago I was landing in London without English, without connections and without money. All
I had were my will and desire to do. The idea for Escape Network blossomed in Italy. I assisted first hand to the “escape” of my generation from difficult
realities. I saw many of my friends converging towards London, a magnificent city with many opportunities.

My first London experience was at the age of 20 in 2005. I had never worked before and my first job was as a Kitchen Assistant and it was
totally underpaid. It was my first experience living abroad and I had to cope alone with all the related difficulties and different bureaucracy. I
returned to Italy after three weeks with the nagging idea of creating some kind of support for whoever needed to face London from scratch,
without imagining that this dream would one day turn into my reality. We are now London’s leading agency for recruitment and professional
training.

Escape Network’s mission is to find talents and make them better, but above all we want to find people who want to give the max, who want to invest in
themselves, work hard and create a future.

When I returned to London in 2012, my first office was the Costa cafe in Oxford Street; the second a desk at an estate agency in Willesden
Green, given to me in exchange of finding new tenants. I was living in East London and had no money for transport so I woke up every morning
at 6 am and cycled to work in time for my 8 o’clock start. I spent my first money for my first “real office”, an abandoned garage in East London.
Not having enough money to hire actual employees, I asked a few friends to help me out and work for me. This is when Escape Network was born. I
remember that I worked 20 hours per day, 7 days out of 7. Whenever my peers were out partying, I was working. While Reading a book I came across
the word “HUSTLE”. This word will become the reference for my whole professional life.

Escape Network’s mission is to find talents and make them better, but above all we want to find people who want to give the max, who want to invest in
themselves, work hard and create a future. We create the ideal conditions but the rest is 100% depends on your HUSTLE.

I’m strongly convinced that today the key to having a successful company is making customers happy and building a strong relationship with
them. For this reason feel free to contact me at any time and please send me your feedback at: raff@escapenetwork.com
