Having played golf since a young age, I had the opportunity to live in America playing golf and studying for a degree at the same time. After 4 brilliant years I graduated with First in Business from St. Edwards’s University, Austin and moved back to London to pursue a professional career. Living and studying abroad really moulded me as a person and I am so grateful that I can apply these skills and experience to my day to day working life.
I fell into HR recruitment completely by accident and haven’t looked back since! Recruitment really appealed as I was able to develop relationships, building an understanding of how different businesses work and have really enjoyed growing professionally to service the needs of clients across all industries.
Having recruited both Interim, Fixed Term and Permanent HR professionals in my 7 years of recruitment experience, I have recently joined Oakleaf Partnership to recruit HR professionals on an Interim and fixed-term basis in the senior Professional services sector market.
Outside of work- I really enjoy exploring all that London has to offer, from different exhibitions at museums through to the latest restaurants and bars. Equally, I love to escape the city on a countryside escape with my little Jack Russell. I am slowly getting back into playing golf and hope to incorporate this into some events with Oakleaf colleagues- watch this space!
