MY ROLE
Director

I am a director within our executive search team working within the energy sector. I am also the diversity and inclusion lead for the group.

What experience and expertise do you bring to your role?

I have over 20 years’ experience in the recruitment industry, with 16 years working in executive search for the global energy industry. For the past four years, I have focussed heavily on diversity and inclusion since the energy industry is heavily male dominated. I am passionate about helping organisations bring more gender balance to their companies.

How are you helping people to achieve their full potential?

I am a people person and I love connecting and talking to people about their careers and motivations. By listening to their needs and wants I am able to match people very well to great opportunities they may never have considered. I truly believe recruitment is a worthwhile profession, helping people in their careers is a powerful purpose.

What’s the best advice you were ever given?

Not exactly advice, but I love the saying “if you think you can or think you can’t you’re absolutely right” – everything comes down to mindset.

What do you enjoy outside of work? Any hobbies?

I have two children; Summer who is six and Leo who is four, so life is quite busy. I am passionate about health, wellness and fitness. I try to prioritise at least 30 minutes a day on strength or HIIT workouts, it my form of meditation and keeps me focussed. I also love reading books on self development and thrillers
