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!
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.
