I job share with Andrea Camara from Wednesday to Friday on permanent and freelance roles within the FMCG and Health & Beauty sectors.
I have worked with big blue chips such as Nestle and Unilever as well as smaller companies and across brands that are household names such as Bisto, Persil, Sharwoods, Kallo and Maggi. I have worked in both consumer and customer marketing and across all channels from grocery to wholesale and foodservice. Prior to this I have worked in Property and International banking.
Having lived in New Zealand for 17 years I have an inbred love of travel and rugby. I’m a big supporter of the All Blacks until they play England and then I have a real problem as to who to support! I have travelled a lot but my preference seems to be more for the warmer climates rather than the colder areas but didn’t stop me experiencing a Russian winter with the temperature hovering around -20C.
Steve Jobs is quoted as saying "The only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet keep looking, don't settle!" Working at Stopgap gives me the opportunity to do a job I love and to give the same advice to my candidates!
This gives me an opportunity to work with books which I love, give something back and learn something new. A win-win situation all round!
