My Background

I began my career working for an accountancy firm ranking within the top 40 and developed my experience within Insolvency and Corporate Recovery.

I gained various skills working on a broad range of cases such as MVLs, CVLs, Administrations, Trading Administrations and Personal Bankruptcies.

I then made the move into recruitment and initially focused on both Insolvency and Corporate Finance roles before deciding to exclusively specialise in Corporate Finance recruitment.

What Clients and Candidates Say About Me

"I highly recommend Mani! She was willing to work with me and put me forward for permanent roles even though I was on a temporary visa when other agencies would not. She managed to assist me in securing a role with a Corporate Finance Practice offering sponsorship. Throughout the process Mani kept me updated and informed on a regular basis without being too pushy and was able to turn around the opportunity very quickly." - Johnathan Wong, Corporate Finance Manager at Kreston Reeves

She took time to listen to me and understand the kind of role I was seeking, and thereafter identified several roles that matched my criteria. Throughout the recruitment process, she offered me practical advice and helped me prepare for interviews by conducting mock interview sessions, as well as by providing me with helpful information on the hiring firms. Overall, Mani was instrumental in helping me find the ideal role and I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking a professional and personal approach to recruitment." -

Outside of work

I’m generally a very positive person and enjoy travelling, music and food! I also really love reading books based on personal development.
