I recruit freelance and permanent candidates for the Professional and Business Services team. I work on Friday in a job share with Jackie Pinfold.
I cut my teeth with broad marketing roles in the B2B IT space before moving on to BT Cellnet (now O2) as Channel Marketing Manager.
When I was younger I wanted to be a vet because… I loved animals but my plans were scuppered when… I realised that frogs, snakes, creepy crawlies and I could never be closely acquainted! In my spare time you can find me being a mum at home or away with children, dogs and husband.
I've often felt that working with Stopgap, such a truly people focused business, is pretty much akin to professional matchmaking. Testament to how well we get to know our clients and candidates there've been one hell of a lot of "weddings"! It's a privilege to be the person they reach out to - a trusted advocate, not "just a recruiter"...
Give me white water rafting any day.
