My remit at Frazer Jones is within the retail and business services sectors, focusing specifically on the London market but with coverage of the Thames Valley, M4 corridor and South East regions.
I started my recruitment career back in 2001 specialising in the secretarial, PA and business support field and as time progressed I have developed strong relationships and diversified into HR markets recruiting all HR roles from advisory level through to the head of function across various sectors.
Over the years I have worked on very busy temporary/interim and permanent hire roles within the City and West End of London as well as regionally covering the South East and have worked with clients across all sectors. My experience also includes implementing small RPOs and volume recruitment for retail sector clients at head office as well as UK-wide as well as focused individual targeted hires of a highly confidential nature.
I am grateful that I have formed strong relationships with clients and candidates over these years and am pleased to have many returning to me for support with their next hire or next opportunity. Understanding, listening and honesty are key parts to building those relationships and qualities I pride myself in.
In my spare time, which is generally rare, I combine London working with living by the sea, I run the odd 10k race and have a young family who never stand still so life is always busy. They always say give something you need doing to a busy person and I am sure that’s true!

My experience with Stephanie was on both sides - client and candidate and she was known for her enthusiastic and highly organized ability to achieve goals, targets, innovatively, while remaining focused on the client’s and candidate needs whilst ensuring high quality standards were maintained. Stephanie has the ability to negotiate and liaise with people on all levels. She was one who approaches tasks with discernment and resourcefulness and enjoys a challenge.
I have worked with Stephanie for 3 years and what makes Steph stand out from the crowd is how passionate and committed to every detail in her dealings with clients and candidates she is. This builds great levels of trust, and allows Steph to give a full consultancy service to her customers. Alongside this, you have a genuinely warm and considerate personality that adds a huge amount to both her team and the business as a whole. I highly recommend.
Stephanie is extremely personable. She has your best interests at heart and is 100% focused on getting it right for you and what you require. She will not just "fill a role" with "any candidate" - she really cares, and is passionate about getting it right for both the candidate and the client. I am the happiest I've been in my career, doing exactly what I went to Stephanie looking for. You are guaranteed success if you have Stephaine on board!
I have worked with Steph as a supplier for a number of years in my capacity of recruitment manager. Particularly focusing on the provision of temporary resourcing for a support teams which she has always responded to in a timely and effective manner. She is an extremely professional recruiter and demonstrates the ability to match candidate and client requirements. A strong ambassador for her company.
When I recruit I will always go to Steph, she is extremely knowledgeable in her field, will advise me on the market and I know I can trust her to find the best people for the business, no matter what level role I need to hire. If it is a short term temp or a larger volume workforce Steph has the skills and ability to deliver, implement and manage this process and is extremely professional with it. I cannot recommend her enough!
Stephanie is without doubt the ultimate professional, she really knows her business areas and has an incredible ability to connect with clients, customers and stakeholders which makes the service personal to each individual she encounters. Stephanie communicates thoroughly, I always felt in the loop and she works with determination and energy to support those she is connected to. Steph is without doubt credible, reliable and committed to deliver for both clients and customers.
I would highly recommend Stephanie. I have found her to be supportive and helpful in my search for new opportunities. She is excellent at keeping in touch with her clients and most importantly for me, makes time for you as an individual.
Steph is a highly competent recruiter, and has helped with pragmatic advice and guidance whilst looking for a new opportunity. Would recommend anyone who is looking for their next opportunity to get connected.
Stephanie is unusual as a senior recruiter in my experience. Most agencies seem to have purely transactional relationships with their candidates: good initial conversations about a particular role, full of positive intentions but in the end its just another short term contact unless the candidate takes the initiative.Stephanie's approach is different. If there appears to be some agreed mutual benefit in staying in touch after the first opportunity, she actually makes the first move to ensure that it happens. I'm sure that's very likely to make most candidates feel valued at a time when they probably need it most.

Stephanie is extremely relatable and reliable. She connects very well with the people she works with and establishes an environment of trust with the people she interacts with. Stephanie is pragmatic, full of energy and ambitions.
