I have worked in the financial & professional services team since February 2013. I started at the firm as a Graduate Researcher, which was my first ever job (excluding waitressing!) Since I started here, I have received incredible training and mentorship across the firm and have continued to be offered great opportunities within The SR Group.
My focus at Frazer Jones is the recruitment of permanent mid-level HR professionals within law firms, accountancy firms, management consultancies and property firms. This encompasses generalist HR, recruitment, graduate recruitment, learning & development and, an increasingly growing specialism, diversity & inclusion. My client portfolio is diverse, and requirements can vary massively: Clients need everything from their first representative to establish an HR function in their start-up firm, all the way through to an international firm restructuring a team and recruiting 3 Advisors and 3 Business Partners exclusively through myself.
Having trained as a barrister, I have always had a strong interest within the legal sector and have been fortunate to widen my professional services knowledge and work with a huge range of partnership environments. I possess a strong understanding of what stakeholders within professional services expect of an HR function and I appreciate how much importance is put on a cultural match, alongside technical ability. My clients, on numerous occasions, have become my candidates, and my candidates have become my clients, hence why I continue to place immense value on the relationships I build and pride myself on the quality of service I offer.
Having recently bought a house, I have discovered a new love for interior design and I am always on the look-out for my next up-cycling project. During my spare time, I will either be on my yoga mat or enjoying a new restaurant; eating out is probably my favourite hobby. I have also supported the Dogs Trust and Guide Dogs for the Blind for many years so, if you don’t want to talk about HR recruitment, show me a photo of your pooch to really get me on side!
'Big Three' Management Consulting Firm
I really can’t thank Melissa Muirdick enough for helping me with my recent move. She is honestly the most patient recruiter and understands how important a career move can be for any individual. Looking back, I am so happy with my career choice and have no regrets, but I couldn’t have done this without her help.
I have worked with Melissa as a candidate and a client and have had an extremely positive experience from both sides. Melissa is thorough and professional and acts with honesty and integrity with the best interests of her candidate at heart. I trust her judgement and value her input on market intelligence. I will continue to instruct Melissa on our HR vacancies and would highly recommend her to both friends and fellow recruitment managers.
