Hi I'm Caroline,

I am one of two Heads of Business at Stopgap looking after the more consumer facing consultant teams at Stopgap, including the team who look after agency roles.

My area of expertise

After having started life in hospitality my career then moved into sales and marketing and I spent the bulk of my career in FMCG.

I worked for some great blue-chip companies including Cadbury Trebor Bassett, Paulig (Lyons, Melitta and Ashby’s coffee) and Kantar and worked my way up through national accounts, trade marketing and category marketing, when it was in its infancy. I was one of the first category managers in the team at Cadbury Trebor Bassett. I then moved over to Stopgap recruiting into FMCG/ Retail and have loved it ever since. I have worked at all levels from junior to Executive across most consumer sectors and in my current role I look after 3 great teams of consultants.

A little more about me...

Married to Tony for 10 years (a record for both of us!) we live in Twickenham and share a passion for sport and Rugby in particular. We are season ticket holders for Harlequins and go to as many international matches as we can too. We love travelling and road trips, so holidays are really important to us and they will always involve good food and wine – another passion. We have acquired a small, but very mature garden at our house in Twickenham so I am learning how to manage it, very badly - you will see me wandering around aimlessly at our local garden center, not having a clue most of the time!

People are the most important thing at Stopgap, whether you work here or are a client or candidate. That’s what has kept me here so long, loving what I do.


“I started life in hospitality and I am a trained chef”

Although I hate cooking now and my husband does it all. I now clear up after him! If you ever need someone to cook for a 100 people, I am your person though.
