I recruit engineering and manufacturing professionals for WR Engineering.
At sixth form I studied Business, English Literature and Psychology. After getting to second year and realising I didn’t want to study anymore - I joined an accountancy firm, and spent around 6 months producing financial accounts and running payroll. I then decided to move to Australia for four months, came back, started my career in recruitment, and here I am a year and a half later!
I love food and dogs - not mixed together though as I don’t eat meat! I also enjoy socialising and literature - again not together as you can’t write poetry with a drink in your hand!
I've been to all of the continents but two (Antarctica & South America), including places such as: Australia, Jamaica, Canada, America, Iceland, Egypt, India, and Greece!
I mainly recruit sales Engineers for products such as; MRO, pumps, valves, compressors, pneumatics and hydraulics.
I grew up in Hemel Hempstead and attended Amersham & Wycombe College where I studied acting. I love fun social events like days at the races with family and friends, holidays to Jamaica, sport (I'm a lifelong Spurs fan) and my ultimate love is spending time and creating memories with my daughter.
A fun fact about me is that I used to be a Butlins Redcoat, where I interviewed the likes of Sir Geoff Hurst, Stephen Mulhern and a number of Britain’s Got Talent stars including Stavros Flatley and Ashley Banjo (Diversity) in front of crowds of 2500 people.
I recruit technical sales staff across the UK, working predominantly with fluid handling companies.
I grew up in Horsham and studied Sport & PE at Bedfordshire University. I enjoy anything sporty that doesn’t involve an egg shaped ball or a cricket bat. I love AFC Wimbledon and seeing the world with my partner in crime.
I recruit in the manufacturing and engineering sector, working with SME’s and major OEM’s predominantly within the aerospace & defence, nuclear, automotive and marine industries.
I grew up in Fareham and now live in Waterlooville with my fiancé and my 3 cats (I am officially a crazy cat lady). I studied English Language and Literature at the University of Leicester and have been working in recruitment since 2013.
In my spare time, you'll either find me at Crossfit / the gym, baking, reading, or watching a good TV series on Netflix. I also love travelling and going on holiday, and I've been to 14 countries.
A few fun facts about me:
I have raised a total of £5,000 for Childreach International, completing two challenge events for the charity. At 19 I climbed to the summit of Mt Kilimanjaro and spent 3 weeks in Africa exploring Tanzania, going on safari in Kenya and relaxing on Zanzibar Island. I later, at 21, travelled to China to walk the Great Wall of China, exploring hidden parts of the wall and climbing Heavens Ladder.
Earlier this year (2019) I completed my first Tough Mudder just outside London. This was scarier and included more electrocution than first expected but was great fun!
Having recruited in the temporary, contract and permanent markets, across all sectors, I now specialise in sales engineers, sales managers and service engineers. I just love engineering.
I grew up in Dubai and Sussex, studied in Manchester and played and coached professional squash in the USA and Canada, under the ex world number one,Jonathon Power. I enjoy sport, music, playing squash, cricket and football. I'm a massive Pompey fan, and follow them home and away !
An interesting fact about me is I helped book shows with numerous bands before and during my time in Manchester – one has now gone on to win a Brit Award and had a No 1 album ! Some not so fortunate...
I studied Aeronautical Engineering through college, obtaining an Extended Diploma which lead me to an apprenticeship with a precision engineering company in Portsmouth. With this knowledge and experience, I wanted to fully utilise it within my career, so where better to use it than being a specialist recruiter in the engineering and manufacturing industry?
I was born and raised in Gosport, and football was a big part of my youth, playing for teams within Gosport and winning multiple trophies growing up. In my spare time, I see my mates, have a kickabout or watch UFC. I haven’t missed a UFC event for the last few months, and my next goal is to watch one live.
An interesting fact about me is that for my first tattoo, I got my mums initials, but was slightly less than happy with the finished product - as they had tattooed it the wrong way round!
I recruit for WR Engineering
I grew up in Lincoln and lived there for just over 18 years, going to school at the William Farr CofE Comprehensive Academy, which at the time was one of the top 25 schools in the UK.
In my spare time my hobbies are playing football and cricket. I used to play Badminton to a high level, and made it into the top 9 teams in the county at age 16!
An interesting fact about myself is I was a semi-professional Goalkeeper this time last year playing in Lincolnshire.

Glenn was an absolute pleasure to deal with during my recent job change. the entire process, from his initial contact to his continued communication after my start date, was an example all recruiters should aspire to follow.
I was able to keep in touch with Glenn, regularly have open and honest discussions and had all my questions answered. In what is often a crowded field of disappointment & time wasting, Glenn gave me a new found confidence in Recruiters & Consultants.
He is a credit to WR Engineering & I look forward to keeping in touch with him as our careers continue to progress.
