From fashion design to award winning business, Indi Deol has done it all. We find out more as we put him under the spotlight...
You’ve been with us for a few months now, what do you like most about working from the Eagle Lab?
It’s a fun environment. The Barclays staff here are nice to be around, very helpful and have helped put us in touch with other organisations. It’s a nice working environment, everyone collaborates and are very social. It’s also an ideal location near the city centre too.

So I have recently launched DESIBlitz Job Board because over the years we have always been sent CVs. It started off to be mainly related to media jobs, journalism etc, but lately over the last few years its grown to anything from admin, finance to fashion design. We’ve always sent these on to organisations who have been looking for people and talent. One day it clicked – We know all these businesses are trying to recruit people and we are getting all theses CVS from our readers – makes sense to create our own job board and add value to our advertisers. Our job board focuses on diversity and inclusion.
Where do you see DESIBlitz in the next 5 years?
I’d like to see us being a British Asian household name for online content and grow our business offerings into various different sectors serving British Asian needs.
Ok, so now for the serious question - Who would play you in ‘The Life of Indi’?
Robert De Niro
Because he’s got that hard edge about him but he’s a big softy.
Tell us something we don’t know about you (keep it clean)
I studied fashion design at university. I was always good at art from school and pursued this at university, although it’s not want I work in today, I don’t regret it!
