Back in 1998 I joined a large global recruitment business, starting my career in Scotland. Within the first 12 months I had moved into an HR specialist role, with a key focus on the Interim marketplace. As my career evolved in this business, I started to take the responsibility for the strategic direction of interims across the UK.
In 2011 I made the decision to move into a newly formed SME HR Consultancy, taking on a more hybrid role, leading the in house hiring of the best HR talent out there, and the growth and development of the interim management model. I then relocated to London 5 years ago to set up their new south region. This part of my career was integral in forming who I am today with the opportunity to work very closely with my HR counterparts, manage the HR interim team of consultants and provide creative and fit for purpose solutions for our clients. I have supported many Director level projects, provided full project teams, and worked extensively with specialist requirements in areas such as OD and Reward.
From here I felt my natural next step was to move into a HR recruitment boutique and work for a market leader. At Oakleaf I am responsible for our Executive Interim Management Solutions business across all sectors.
Outside of work I like to keep active. Currently training for the Chicago marathon in October this year, with my goal being to complete six major world marathons by the time I am 50! I also love to spend time with my son Charlie who keeps me entertained with his quirky, wonderful ways daily.
