After graduating from York university, I decided to make the trip down to London to kick start my career. I joined a large global recruitment firm and specialised in PA/secretarial recruitment for 3 years. I then moved to set up the retail business and built long standing relationships with HR professionals within retail and wholesale on a national and international scale. During 2009 I took a sabbatical and travelled the world to come back and move to financial services, specialising in senior HR appointments across banking and investment management. After finding the love for HR search, I wanted to purely work for a HR recruitment boutique and work for a market leader. At Oakleaf I am responsible for managing the Financial Services and Professional Services team as well as hiring into the senior market for FS/PS.
In my spare time I love running, completing my 2nd marathon this year for charity, bikram yoga, drinking good wine and travelling to at least one new country each year!
