LinkedIn Profile

After graduating from the University of Leicester with a degree in Modern Languages and Management, I worked in Human Resources for a logistics company in Madrid. This was my first experience of recruitment and after spending two years abroad, I decided to move back to London and joined Orbis in early 2017.  

Initially working within Compliance and Risk, I have now expanded into roles covering Business Analysts, Account Managers and Client Services.  

With a passion for languages, one of my favourite things to do in my spare time is travel, and having spent time abroad, I am lucky to have friends in different countries across Europe and further, which means plenty of free sofas to sleep on!
