I've worked in the recruitment industry for 10 years, 8 of which have been focused on building DGP which is a sales and marketing focused recruitment company. I built this from scratch up to a team of over 10 people, servicing some of the best clients possible such as Nestle, Unilever, Coty, Innocent, Diageo and Red Bull - to name just a few!
I set up ecruit as it allows me to provide my clients with a low cost alternative to using a recruitment agency. By combining my knowledge, with new technology and an amazing online marketing presence, I can give my clients access to a superb candidate network. My role here is varied; I love the thrill of dealing with customers and developing new concepts so I would describe myself as a customer service director and innovation manager all rolled into one!
When I'm not running the business, I can be found watching Peppa Pig with my new baby boy and 2 year old daughter, or jogging round the common trying to maintain my new fitness regime!
I previously worked in the innovation and technology division of Barclays as Vice president, helping the bank drive their IT change agenda. I was tempted into the exciting world of recruitment and digital technology after craving something that would allow me a greater degree of ownership and speed to market, and I found exactly this at ecruit!
I am in charge of our technical product development, and the day-to-day running of the service team.
I have a love of the arts (which I studied at Kings College London), and when I'm not visiting galleries on the weekend I'll be found baking at home. I bake a mean cupcake, I'm sure the office can testify to this!
The majority of my career has been spent in online recruitment, where I’ve recruited, built and coached sales teams. I’ve worked at some of the largest Job Boards in the UK – Monster, fish4jobs and reed.co.uk. I’ve helped clients reduce their cost per hire, recruitment administration and helped them recruit the best talent into their organisations. I’ve always enjoyed meeting clients, finding out the challenges they face with their recruitment and helping them overcome these challenges.
I joined ecruit because they have an excellent offering, a fun team and a great culture.
Away from work, I enjoy a good movie, spending time with my family and friends, working out and most sports.
I graduated from Kings College London where I studied Philosophy, Religion and Ethics, and then spent two years running the office at IV Club in Maida Vale. I decided that I would love to move into something more creative, and opted for the exciting world of marketing and advertising at ecruit.
Working with such a diverse group of clients gives me a real buzz - no two assignments are the same - and I love the challenges I'm faced with every day.
In my spare time I love watching true crime documentaries and getting lost in a good book. I am also a big music fan, so you can often find me in front of the piano or guitar!
I have worked with the founders of ecruit for several years in a supporting role, helping research and recruit middle to senior level candidates into the consumer and b2b sectors.
As a business administration graduate from Manchester, I have always described myself as having a creative edge. Therefore, the opportunity to work as a chief copywriter and creative for ecruit really played to my strengths.
I'm responsible for writing beautifully drafted adverts that are also SEO optimised, to make them stand out from the crowd! I'm a real wordsmith at heart!
I like to relax by reading and writing (I'm publishing a short stories novel on Amazon), going for long country walks in Dorset with my dog, or cooking a big roast on a Sunday for the family.
I'm one of the client service executives for ecruit, and my role is all about handling day-to-day account queries from clients, as well as setting up new recruitment advertising campaigns. I studied nursing and medicine, and previously worked at Accident and Emergency at Bournemouth hospital, before deciding that whilst I have a talent for helping people, I really wanted to work in a commercial role.
I love working for ecruit, the team atmosphere is really committed but we know how to have fun along the way. On the weekends, and when it is sunny, I like to go sailing or waterskiing in the Solent. In the winter I also love to ski - I'm a bit of an adventurer at heart!
I studied Communication, Media and Music at Liverpool University before starting my career off in the film industry. Here I met some of the most demanding people on the planet, which set me up very well for a career in client services and recruitment. I started off at DGP three years ago in the brand team, going through several promotions to eventually head up all of commercial marketing for the company.
