My Background:

As a Mathematics graduate, I have always had a knack for solving problems and providing solutions.  I am passionate about giving back, therefore I was a Mathematics teacher in a secondary school before embarking a journey into Education Recruitment and supporting those around me. Being a naturally ambitious professional, I aspire to be the greatest I can be and believe every individual has the potential for greatness and I love helping them reach it, which is one of the many reasons I got into recruitment. 

Roles I recruit:

I recruit across all levels of the Legal Finance and Accounting sector on a permanent, temporary and fixed-term contract basis; from entry-level professionals who are starting their careers through to those looking for their next challenge.  If you are seeking some advice or would like to hear about the roles that we are currently recruiting for within Legal Finance and Accounting, do get in touch!

Outside of work:

I am a foodie at heart, I believe food has the universal quality of being able to transcend linguistic and cultural barriers when explored and appreciated with an open mind, it’s one of the many things that can connect us. Sharing food is what gives me joy, but creating a greater awareness of food waste and how to minimise this and have a zero-waste footprint is something that I believe is very important. I also have a huge sense of wanderlust and love embarking on many adventures.
