With over 20 years’ recruitment experience, gained largely in the IT recruitment marketplace,
I’ve worked my way up through the ranks from entry level Resourcer to Recruitment Consultant to
Senior Consultant – cutting my teeth within a big corporate agency placing IT contractors.
Five years later, I left the corporate world and moved to the opposite end of the scale – a career
with a smaller ‘boutique’ recruitment agency, allowing me more freedom to work to my strengths.
Here I became involved in permanent recruitment and more diverse sectors, ultimately broadening my
commercial and recruitment skills.
Having established Solo Search in 2004, one of my passions is to do my part in raising recruitment
industry standards in the UK. I fully uphold the code of professional practice and high standards
required in today’s recruitment environment. I believe in ‘giving something’ back even if you can’t
directly help a candidate or client and not giving up when the going gets tough. Recruitment can be a
tough old game at times but I am proud to still be riding that wave.
In my free time I am a keen tennis player and enjoy living a healthy and active lifestyle which usually
means my daily office attire is a hoodie brighter than this website. I do love a good retail therapy
fix and am usually the last one to leave a dance floor. I am a bit of a workaholic, not afraid of hard
graft and am a ‘completer finisher’ which does include anything on my plate. Pet hates are candidates
not showing up for an interview (and not letting anyone know) and client words - “I’ve already got that CV”.
