Prior to my career in recruitment, I completed a management apprenticeship with the high street department store John Lewis, and went on to work as the sales coach for two departments in a +1000 employee store.
I was introduced into the recruitment industry by a family member, and due to the industry being very meritocratic, fast paced and giving me the opportunity to govern my own business within the brand of a larger organisation, I decided to make the career change.
Since early 2016, I have continually recruited contractors in to the regulatory & compliance market of the Financial Services industry, and have simultaneously recruited for Data Protection & Data Privacy professionals, cross-industry since May 2017.
I was approached by Morgan McKinley to help start & develop our service offering within the contract Data Privacy / Data Protection market, whilst also working the Compliance market within financial services, joining the business in January 2018.
