Robin Scott is from Wensleydale at the heart of England’s Yorkshire Dales National Park.
Robin holds a Bachelor of Laws degree from the University of Newcastle Upon Tyne (UK).
It was while an undergraduate at Newcastle that Robin first entered the world of e-commerce during his free time as he looked to establish a business to help fund his studies.
Robin started his online career selling products & services using a variety of automation techniques. He quickly progressed to selling via websites. 24 Hour Trading was founded with the aim of selling ‘around the clock’.
The Web Developer
One of the services Robin launched in 2004, Systemlays UK, won him the Newcastle University Enterprise Challenge 2006 Award: Overall Prize for Business Viability in addition to their award for Achievement in E-Commerce.
Systemlays UK was sold in 2011, after 5 years of successful operation, and the brand is still a successful name in the digital horse racing prediction software industry.
In 2006, following his graduation from Newcastle, Robin flew to Australia for a year abroad, during which he worked for major law firms in Brisbane. He continued to develop the online business at 24 Hour Trading, working on a number of web development projects for third parties in Melbourne, Sydney and latterly the Adelaide Hills region.
Robin understood that good things happen when you collaborate. At the end of 2007, Robin welcomed Linda Haywood as a partner before offering Jonathan Farrington, with whom Robin worked on a number of projects in Australia, a role within the partnership.
In 2010 the business was incorporated into a limited company with Robin, Linda and Jonathan as directors.
Robin Scott became a director of 24 Hour Trading Ltd on 23rd July 2010.
