I cover the mid-senior perm market across commerce and industry in the UK which includes HR generalists, learning and development, recruitment and specialist roles such as organisational design, development and project/change management. Roles range from HR manager, head of talent acquisition, HR director and director of talent management. Typically, I work with businesses in the technology and telco space and cover a wide range from fast-growth start-up to large global Fortune 500 companies. I also co-run our Future Talent series, a programme aimed at developing high-potential HR talent through a year-long programme of blended learning.
I have been working in recruitment since 2010 and in fact began my career as a finance & accountancy recruiter. After moving into Executive Search, I covered senior roles across Europe and after delivering a few HR searches and getting a flavour of HR recruitment, I decided to take a leap of faith. I am now a specialist in the HR market and I can honestly say it has been the best career decision I have made.
I have a very straightforward and honest approach. I value my candidates just as highly as my clients and believe very much in the old adage… “what goes around comes around”. I value long-term relationships and very much see myself as a pro-active recruiter who will listen first, speak later.
I am a supporter of Bolton Wanderers (for my sins) and follow them whenever I can. My sporty lifestyle is counterbalanced with my love of food, wine & cheese and exploring London’s fantastic restaurants. I also have a cat called Polly!
