What is your background?
I completed my law degree in 2016, before spending a year abroad, gaining valuable experience and knowledge that I have brought with me into my career in recruitment. I have previously worked in hospitality management; leading, building, and training teams of over 40 people.
I have now spent several years in Executive Recruitment and am responsible for providing both interim and permanent resourcing solutions within public sector organisations. I have experience of making appointments across the spectrum of local authority functions, ranging from social care to regeneration to finance roles.
Why did you decide to join Tile Hill?
Back in 2016, it was meeting David and Anthony that inspired me to begin a career in recruitment. It was immediately evident that they harbour a genuine love of people and are passionate about helping both clients and candidates find the right roles at the right time. I previously worked with Anthony in a different organisation, and on being offered the chance to work with him and David again, it was too good an opportunity to miss!
Tell us more about your role at Tile Hill?
My role as an Associate Consultant focuses on building and developing Tile Hill's candidate network through research, resourcing and networking.
What will you be bringing to the table?
I bring a hard-working attitude and strong work ethic, along with a passion for ensuring every day brings new challenges and learnings.
What’s your approach to recruitment?
I believe in matching the right candidate to the right role. A lot of candidates could do a lot of roles, but I aspire to find the perfect fit with regards, not only to relevant skills and experience but also to cultural fit within an organisation.

What's your top business tip?
Whether this is my top business tip or my life motto, I'm not sure, but I always try to live every aspect of life by the famous quote, 'never let the fear of striking out, keep you from playing the game'.
