I first joined Hays in 2002, starting as a trainee recruitment consultant within the Accountancy & Finance team in the UK. I did not have previous recruitment or finance experience however with the support of Hays I developed my skills in recruiting part qualified finance professionals within the commercial sector. After early success in developing and servicing key clients and candidates, I progressed to a management role and furthered my development by taking responsibility for mentoring and developing a region of offices. After five years combining these responsibilities, an opportunity arose to lead Hays’ tax business. I was lucky enough to work with an excellent group of people, growing the business and the capabilities of our team by always focusing on the client and candidate experience.
In 2009 I took advantage of Hays’ global footprint and transferred to Australia. This was an amazing experience and the support I gained in my relocation was fantastic. In Australia I lead Hays’ specialist business units incorporating our Sales, Marketing, Human Resources, Retail, Legal, Contact Centres, Office Support, Procurement and Life Sciences. My focus was developing the businesses into a cohesive unit that continues to deliver a high quality service to Hays clients and candidates alike.
After six successful years in Australia I returned to the UK in 2016 and now head up our Finance Technology and Financial Markets division based in the our flagship office in London.
I’m naturally inquisitive and place very high expectations on myself which is why Hays is the perfect place for me. I work hard and have an incredibly rewarding international career to show for it.
