What’s your background?​
I’ve been in recruitment for 4½ years, although my focus has been on market research and insight. I’ve got a lot to learn about the sector, but hopefully not quite so much to learn about recruitment itself.

Why did you decide to join Tile Hill? 
A mixture of having a real passion for current affairs and public sector, the flexible yet professional approach Tile Hill have to working and, of course, the two charming gentleman who interviewed me.

Tell us more about your role at Tile Hill? 
I’m an Associate Consultant. This means, I focus on the candidate relationship side and will be working to extend Tile Hill’s network even further.

What will you be bringing to the table? 
I’ve been told I am an out of the box thinker and an ideas person, so as well as fulfilling my role I hope I can help develop new ideas.

What's your approach to recruitment? 
Relationships first. For me it’s the most important aspect of recruitment.

What's the soundtrack to your working life? 
It depends on the day. Sometimes it’s Under Pressure by Queen & David Bowie, on others it’s Please, Please, Please, Let me Get What I Want by The Smiths, and others it’s I Have Confidence from The Sound of Music. On particularly weird days it’s The Laughing Gnome by David Bowie just going round on an infinite loop in my poor, poor brain.

What's your top business tip? 
Be passionate. Whether you sell used toasters or diamond rings, passion is infectious.

What would your autobiography be called? 
How to Stay Alive for 30 years, 282 days, 3 hours and 11 minutes (and counting) – An Overly Wordy Guide to Existing in Reasonable Comfort.
