About Me!

The work bit

I have a wealth of experience under my belt that means I know my stuff, from managing high street retail stores to working for one of the largest Welfare to Work providers in the UK.

Within recruitment, I‘ve been on both sides of the fence. I‘ve worked 1-2-1 with people to coach them in finding a suitable career as well as being director of a small independent agency, successfully matching hundreds of companies, from SMEs to multi-nationals, with employees who drive their business forward.

I have always believed there is a better way for companies to find the staff they need.

That‘s my goal with Recruit123!

The reason I can offer my expertise and time at such great value is, I‘ve deliberately kept my team petite but perfectly formed.

I have a small office team who help me manage my business so I can focus all my attention on you and your business recruitment needs.

non-work bit

Because work is just a part of who I am, I thought you might like to know a little more about who you‘re talking to...

Stuff I love:

  • Whipping up a tasty dish from fresh ingredients (yes, secret Masterchef wannabe here).
  • Taking Lottie, my gorgeous cockapoo, on adventures.
  • Animals in general. There‘s none I couldn‘t love.
  • Sharing beautiful photos I‘ve found for others to appreciate.
  • Time with friends and family. I think our time is the greatest gift we can give.
  • Helping people. It gives me a warm glow.
  • Foreign travel. Nothing expands the mind and soul quite like it.
  • Theatre. I adore a good show (and I can pretend I‘m cultured - ‘just off to the theatre, darling‘)!
  • Making other people happy - which is why customer service remains at the heart of my work.

Things my friends
say about me:

  • I‘ll stick by you.
  • You can always rely on me.
  • I‘ll go out of my way to help someone.
  • I can be a bit sensitive, but only because I care.
  • I sometimes worry about things I can‘t control (but don‘t we all)?
  • I‘m resilient.
  • I try and learn from bad experiences - they can only make you stronger.
  • I have a lot of good old-fashioned values (like treat others as you‘d like to be treated).

Some interesting facts:

  • I was in the Brownies, which is probably where my ‘helping others‘ attitude stems from.
  • I was an Air Cadet and have flown a plane!
  • I had a stint as a DJ (I love all sorts of music).
  • I started working in retail at the tender age of 13.

My favourite quote

I‘ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
