MY ROLE
Senior consultant

I’m a senior consultant in our executive search team which I specialise on private equity and professional services.

What experience and expertise do you bring to your role?

I’m a dedicated and entrepreneurial executive search professional with 23 years of recruitment experience gained at a number of results-driven organisations. I have excellent international experience, specialising in business development, mapping new markets and management of key accounts. Most recently, I have focussed on specialisation within the professional services, business advisory and private equity sectors.

How are you helping people to achieve their full potential?

Engage, educate and encourage.

What are your thoughts on the future of your sector?

The private equity sector has had a strong first-half deal value, but inflationary pressures are starting to hit home. The professional services market is forecast to grow in 2022, due to companies’ urgent need to reorganise operations while recovering from the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. This is where we can help.

What do you enjoy outside of work? Any hobbies?

I am a huge Sports fan. Particularly, boxing and football. Regularly attending matches at Leeds United and watching live boxing around the UK.

What was your first job?

Insurance.

What’s the best advice you were ever given?

Never stop learning.
