Recruitment was never the dream, in actual fact, I hadn’t even considered it. I didn’t know any Recruiters and I wasn’t really sure what they did. When I graduated university in Optometry, I thought that was it and I was happy to be an Optician for life – until I had a chance meeting with a Recruiter.
Fast forward 15 years and I feel really lucky to have a career that I genuinely love. I’ve travelled the world with work, owned my own rec2rec business, but most of all, I’ve had the privilege to identify talent and watch careers grow which gives me the biggest sense of satisfaction. TEC Partners was a client of mine previously and I have always admired the team here and how they ‘did recruitment’ so when they were looking for someone to with help their growth ambitions, I jumped at the chance to be part of the story.
Specialism & Area covered
As the Head of Talent, I oversee the attraction and hiring of all new staff as well as ensuring that everyone in the business is happy and supported.
Outside of the office
During lockdown I created a local charity which was designed to help families who were suffering financially during the pandemic with food parcels. With thousands of families supported in the last 18 months, I recently received my Pride of Britain nomination. My absolute biggest love though is my children, husband and my dog, Woody.
