My Background

I joined the Legal Finance team at Ambition in September 2012 having worked in another recruitment firm previously, and I cannot believe where the time has gone.

I started my recruitment career by accident having initially joined my previous firm as a Receptionist and later discovered the world of recruitment.

I thoroughly enjoy what I do and I can’t imagine doing anything else. I am lucky to have found a job that makes me excited to go to work every morning.

Roles I Recruit

I specialise in recruiting Senior Permanent and Interim appointments but will also help out with any mid-level interim roles that need my support.

I am proud to be part of one of the most successful legal finance recruitment teams in London. As a team, we recruit all levels from entry level finance roles to CFO.  We pride ourselves on our consultative approach and the level of service we provide both candidates and clients.

I am currently working with the Top 100 Law Firms in London, ranging from Magic Circle Law Firms to smaller, boutique firms.  I am able to offer a variety of opportunities, expertise and hold a wealth of knowledge in the legal sector.

Outside of work

I enjoy spending my time with family and friends. I lead an active life and am always up for trying new things. I am a foodie and love eating out and trying new restaurants in my local area and in London – I am also an aspiring wine connoisseur but after 2 glasses they all tend to taste the same.

I am happiest when I am on the beach back home is sunny Leigh on Sea with my dog – Buddy (see my LinkedIn for many photo updates of him!)
