Hi I'm Jess,

I work on permanent and freelance roles within the retail industry.

My area of expertise

After spending the first 6 years of my career in accessories and fashion marketing I’ve got a strong understanding of 360 marketing and the industry I specialise within.

I hope this positioning gives candidates and clients the reassurance they may need when it comes to discussing their careers or new roles that we work on.  

A little more about me...

I spent 6 years in fashion and retail marketing before making the move over into the world of recruitment at Stopgap…. I came in to visit as a candidate and left as an employee (a couple of interviews later!). My roots lie in the North, I have been known to like a tipple of gin every now and again, netball, peanut butter and stalking every dog I meet. When I’m not in the office you can find me exploring Northumberland, travelling, taking way too many photographs and generally enjoying time with friends & my crazy family.

Jess is amazing! I hugely enjoy working with her and she has a great understanding of our needs. - Amanda - Marks & Spencer
I really enjoyed working with Jess at Stopgap - Catherine, Vacherin.
I found Jess to be exceptional, and she was backed up brilliantly by her colleagues who contacted me if she wasn't able to, ensuring there was no dead space or concern that I was missing something.
Jess was clear, positive and realistic and communicated at every step of the way. I would recommend both Jess and the agency to anyone!
