"It's all about finding and hiring people smarter than you. Getting them to join your business. And giving them good work. Then getting out of their way. And trusting them. You have to get out of the way so YOU can focus on the bigger vision. That's important. And here's the main thing....you must make them see their work as a MISSION" - Richard Branson
I was educated at Dulwich College, before embarking on an 8 year career as a Police Station Legal Adviser, providing front line advice to arrested detainees across London.
During this period, I undertook my law degree and Legal Practice Course with the intention of becoming a Solicitor. Due to Legal Aid reforms, I decided to change career and joined a Global Recruitment Business as a Legal Recruitment Consultant in June 2008, where I ultimately led both the Commerce and Industry Legal Team and the Private Practice Legal team.
I have assisted many lawyers both within practice and in house at all levels, placing newly qualified solicitors, Associates, Legal Directors and Partners into Top 100 firms law firms both in the UK and internationally. Moreover, I have also worked with a range of in house lawyers, placing General Counsel and Heads of Legal into FTSE and NASDAQ listed businesses and specialist Legal Counsel into SMEs and global multinationals.
I joined Morgan McKinley in 2019 to grow and develop the existing legal division into one of the UK's leading specialist legal recruitment platforms. I believe this can be achieved by providing unparalleled high service levels with honesty and integrity to both those hiring and those looking for their next role. Every client is a candidate and every candidate is a client. Long term relationships are extremely important for us at #MMKLegal.
