Recruitment has been part of my life for so long I’m struggling to remember working life before it! I feel so fortunate to have found a career that I genuinely love and still get excited about. There is nothing better than positively affecting peoples’ life choices as well as delivering exceptional hires. Seeing them tangibly make such a huge difference to workload, stress levels, value-add or bottom line is job satisfaction at its best. Recruitment offers so many highs but it’s also working with tenacity, resilience and self- reflection during those more challenging times that is the test of the true metal of a good versus outstanding recruiter.

I pride myself on giving 100% every time and am very lucky to reap the rewards of some very loyal, trusting clients as a result.

At home my life is both full and rewarding. With 3 children (2 girls and a boy), the youngest of whom is a manic toddler, 2 dogs and a cat, life is never dull! My utopia is time away with my family making as many memories as possible… even when things might not go quite to plan! As a parent I have learnt more skills than I ever thought possible, negotiating being the most transferrable one!

Someone once said to me “ You really found your right vocation in life when you went in to recruitment!” There have been many that have said the same since and it’s true I never thought I would not become a Qualified Accountant but it was clear it just wasn’t the right career path to take!

However, to have had the opportunity of supporting so many Finance people on their career journey has been amazing and I truly didn’t think I would still get the buzz so many years later.

Stepping out to do this for myself has always been my ambition; it’s great to finally be there with, who I believe to be, the best recruiter I have ever worked with.

Outside of work things are just as busy as a keen runner and mostly at my happiest when off road, the muddier the better! I love yoga too and pretty much will have a go at most things energetic. I’m like most people where work and family are important to me and simple things in life make me happy.
