“Recruitment is my jam and making a difference is what drives me.

Originally from the UK, I have worked in various sales role and industries, including finance and logistics, which have put me in a good stead as a Recruitment Specialist.
Through my recruitment career I have partnered with both large corporate accounts and SME’s to find the best talent in the market. Communication, accountability and speed to market are vital elements to my recruitment process. I believe in a consultative approach and that by really understanding the needs of both a candidate and client you can build strong connections and work together to deliver tailored outcomes.

Outside of work I have my hands full with being a new mum – best job ever. I am a bit of a foodie and love a good gritty drama. I don’t do enough of it these days, but I enjoy Pilates, reading, travel and the beach.”
