My career has always involved people. After University I was a social worker at the forefront of care; here I created the first ever ‘help-line’ for families affected by drugs and addiction. I was appointed to NEXT Plc during the retail hey-days and was the first store director at flagship level that with no previous retail experience. Further appointments with key brands led to HR and recruitment responsibilities.


Since the 90’s I have been recruiting at all levels. I was instrumental in staffing the first-ever call centre through to ‘C’ suite search and selection for major corporates. I developed a unique framework to assist companies reduce fall-out in the recruitment process and the success soon saw me utilised in global turn-arounds for major corporations including Fyffes, Zurich, BMW, Barclays Capital and many more.


Following a prospective appointment as a HR director by a major consultancy I was assessed using GALLUP StrengthsFinder™. It was truly a lightbulb moment, ever since I have used it to recruit for my business, SME’s to corporates and to coach individuals to perform better and lead a more satisfying life.


StrengthsFinder™ forms the backbone of our search, selection and coaching offering. We stand out in this sector as a result and attract people who value a prime service. The StrengthsFinder™ performance tool is transformative in nature and I am the only recruitment specialist to use it in EMEA.


My candidates are my clients and my clients are my candidates. They stay with me forever. Surely that is the ultimate accolade of which I am proud and honoured to be so valued. #LovePeople.
