My area of expertise

My area of expertise covers both freelance and permanent roles in the Financial Services world.

As well as:  Manufacturing, Industrial Manufacturing, Pharmaceuticals and Utilities. I have personal experience in digital specialisations as well as across the board marketing roles.

A little more about me...

I come from the digital world of Financial Services. I started off my career as a Journalist and discovered my love for writing. I became a marketing copywriter and since then have had the privilege of working with great Fintech startups and big finance brands in developing their content.

Since moving from South Africa to London I have had a career change in that I have moved into recruitment with Stopgap! My love for communicating with people and being part of such a fantastic company has placed me firmly in a role that I love. So many of Stopgap’s consultants are actually ex-marketers themselves which makes us a dynamic team with a wealth of industry knowledge.

In my personal time I am with my family – and am rushed off my feet entertaining my three year old! We love being outdoors and exploring our new life here in the UK.

Stopgap is a unique team in that they approach everything collaboratively. Changing my career from a digital specialist to a recruitment consultant was a big change and one I can say was the best move for me! Watching the care each consultant puts into dealing with their clients and candidates is admirable in a world where the personal touch is often forgotten!


I used to be an Airhostess in my early 20’s and travelled the globe for six years!

I pretty much have seen every corner of the world and have an immense love for visiting unusual places. I often get asked where my favourite place is to visit and I have to say Cape Town! The mountain is so beautiful and I can’t recommend this part of the world enough!
