My Background

Born and bred in New Zealand, I graduated from The University of Auckland with a Bachelor of Finance & Accounting and a Postgraduate in Commercial Law. I started my career and gained my Chartered Accountancy qualification with a big 4 auditing firm based in Auckland, New Zealand.  After qualifying, I decided I wanted to explore the world and made the move to Asia joining a tier 1 investment bank in Hong Kong.  A few years into my Finance career I was then given an exciting opportunity to move into the world of recruitment, focusing on Finance & Accounting, and have never looked back.

After 6 years of recruiting in Hong Kong, I have recently made the big move to London and joined Ambition UK. 

Being a true specialist within Finance & Accounting, I always strive to provide the best service and match to my clients and candidates with a consultative approach.

Roles I Recruit

The Finance & Accounting Practice team covers finance and accounting roles within Practice and Management Consulting sectors at all levels. 

My team recruits for Assistant Accountants through to Part-Qualified Accountants (roles including Assistant Accountants, Bookkeepers, Payroll, Credit Control, Accounts Payable, Financial Accountant and Management Accountants), myself focusing on Qualified Accountants through to CFOs (roles including Finance Managers, Finance Directors, Financial Controllers and CFOs). 

We have a strong network of quality clients and candidates within both well-established and SME firms.

Outside of Work

I really enjoy spending quality time with family and friends, travelling the world, and a good wine and cheese night!
