Consultant – Financial Services

Louise Downie

After graduating from Edinburgh Napier University with a degree in Events and Marketing Management, I spent a couple of years in New Zealand and Australia in client-facing roles before moving to London to focus on my career. Unsure of which direction to take, I went into an Account Management role which satisfied my desire to work in a role which was relationship-focused.

With this in mind, I realised that recruitment would enable me to utilise my interpersonal skills, people management and relationships. I joined a global recruitment company that specialised within office support positions across all Industry Sectors for nearly 2 years. Throughout my time here, I really enjoyed meeting HR professionals and learning more about what they do, and overall likeminded individuals.

Here I am working on the permanent market specialising in the financial services industries. I am thrilled to be part of an organisation who are so passionate and where I will build on my recruitment knowledge and become an expert in HR.

On a personal note, I love travelling and to be outdoors. Growing up in Scotland, I like to escape London on the weekend for some fresh air! I’m also a keen cyclist and horse rider, which I try to fit around spending time with friends and family.
