LinkedIn Profile

I started my recruitment career 8 years ago when I joined a boutique technology agency. I began forging a path in Tech and Financial Services, with clients I had developed in Investment Banking, Retail Banking, CFD’s/Spread betting and Exchanges.

I built a successful dual desk with clients that I still work with today. I wanted to diversify my experience and gain more knowledge in recruitment, so I took the decision to go in-house and have worked for some blue-chip companies including BAE Systems, HSBC and the Financial Conduct Authority. I have an excellent understanding of the full recruitment lifecycle and have experience of every touch point in that timeline.

Outside my busy work life, I have two young children that keep me on my toes and feeling young. (debatable) My son Mason is 4 and is football mad, which suits me, being a lifelong Chelsea fan! My Daughter Sienna is 2 going on 13, already demanding her hair to be done first thing in the morning (which of course I am hopeless at) and showing an interest in all things beauty.

Outside of work, I enjoy keeping fit by going to the gym, pub, and playing football. 

The first box is for the title ('what they say'), the second box is for the testimonial. You need to select a full block of text as 'block quote' (the symbol with the quotes in the edit menu) to make it an independent testimonial. Bold text is used to write the name of the author of the quote.
