Describe your business in fewer than 15 words
Recruitment and Talent management. Specialising in supplying dynamic, quality, proven professionals.
What inspired you to start/join your company?
Having the flexibility to work with clients as an extension of their own in-house recruitment team, which enables me to have fully open and honest relationship with both hiring managers and candidates. Conducting analysis of the current set up or lending a hand with ad-hoc or specialist roles. The variety and diversity of client requirements whether recruiting a Project Manager in Africa or Russia or a volunteer within the charitable sector, they all bring different challenges.
Where’s your favourite place for lunch?
Sat in the hills overlooking a lake or on a beach, I love to be near water, I guess that wasn’t really the question but I’m a bit dull…I’m a very picky veggie and love Prets avocado & herb wrap. I can see you drooling at the thought!
What’s your favourite business app, tool or website?
Linkedin is probably my favourite and worst all in one!
What’s the best piece of advice you have been given?
I did a static line parachute jump and my parachute didn’t open correctly, I was so in awe of the views I forgot to look up. The one-way radio (in my helmet) had people shouting “kick!” In order to unravel the slither of silk that was to bring me down gently.
Tell us your best joke or share your party trick?
I can make drinks disappear!
What’s the one thing people should come to you for advice about?
Honesty regarding recruitment (both as a business/hiring manager or candidate).
How can people learn more about what you’re doing?
By bribing me with chocolate! Or, alternatively, saying “Hello” (I don’t bite) and asking. Or join in one of the daily walks that I organise.
