What I love most about my work is witnessing people progress their careers and develop as individuals. I feel I’ve done a good job if people trust to come back to me time and time again for support or advice and I am given the opportunity to help them grow and flourish in life.
I graduated with a Philosophy & Theology Degree from University of Nottingham, before embarking on the Graduate Diploma in Law (law conversion course) and a desire to learn more about the legal industry. Whilst completing work experience in law firms, I secured a summer job in recruitment. Here I quite quickly realized I wanted to work with people as much as possible and that recruitment was a great way of doing this.
This passion for people, a desire to help individuals and the opportunity to develop long lasting and trusted relationships has kept me in recruitment.
Over the years my work has covered HR roles into legal, professional services, finance, consultancies, FMCG, charity and technology. These have been both retained and contingent instructions, delivering on individual roles as well as business projects internally and externally. Key projects I’ve helped with have ranged across GDPR, IR35, corporate social responsibility, social mobility, wellbeing and diversity and inclusion.
When I am not working or trying to help match the best talent with the right client, I try to keep fit, eat well and meditate. I practice yoga regularly having completed my 200 YTT (Yoga Teacher Training) and a lot of the teachings from this tie in with my ethics and working in the right way. I also love travelling to new places, perfecting my cooking/baking skills and enjoy music.
