Andreea is also involved with great causes such as Hospices of Hope and the Honeypot Children’s Charity.

James joined CAP2 in 2015 having spent nearly three years in the role of Support at other firms. James originates from Somerset and apart from working hard to solve any problems and answer customer queries, he’s also a big Noel Gallagher fan, but we don’t believe anybody feels the way we do about James!

Ben Zell – 1st Line Support Consultant

Bathonian Ben honed his skill set at the University of Gloucestershire, his interactive gaming development background has given him an eye for detail!

Attracted to CAP2 by our values and aims, Eddy loves playing a part in getting more kids active, and has a passion for health & well-being.
