24 Queen Street,
After completing three years at the University of Manchester studying Psychology, then completing a Masters in Clinical Psychology, I pursued a short-lived career in research which lasted until I had my first taste of recruitment. This was neither planned or previously considered - I knew little about the industry before I joined but once I started I soon realised how well it suited me professionally and personally - the potential and benefits offered are fantastic!
I initially began my career at Sellick Partnership as a Resourcer, transitioning to Recruitment Consultant, and then progressing to Senior Consultant and then to my current role as Executive Consultant.
My speciality lies in supplying finance, information and contract and commissioning professionals into the public and not for profit sector on an interim, contract and permanent basis. I cover Lancashire and Cumbria, and have built up a substantial client base across my patch. I work closely with my clients to ensure I understand them and their resource needs, my approach is personal and tailored so I can offer them the best recruitment service. I’m happiest when I’m working with clients and candidates face to face; I have my old fashioned values and still believe face to face meetings are the most valuable and welcome the opportunity to meet with those I work with.
Over the years I’ve presented at a number of events in collaboration with a variety of industry bodies including HFMA National & North West, CONTACT, CIPFA and AAT. All have enabled me to grow my professional network and share my recruitment expertise.
On a personal note, I have a passion for the outdoors- ranging from windsurfing to skiing and you’ll find me at my happiest sat in a country pub in the Peak District. As a country bumpkin who moved to Manchester City Centre I’m still a little overwhelmed by how much there is to do and the places to see here! As a lover of Italian food and a large glass of red, I’ve scouted out the recommended cuisine and I have not been disappointed yet! If you have any recommendations then let me know!
