I have worked in the recruitment industry for 22 years. For the last 9 years I have owned, and run, an independent agency.
Prior to that I worked my way through the ranks from a trainee up to the Head of Corporate Sales and then Head of Public Sector Division. The need for a new challenge and more control over quality of service led me to start Recruit Recruit Ltd.
I AM PASSIONATE ABOUT raising industry standards and reputation through simply dealing with people better! I have some experience of public speaking and delivering training and workshops to larger groups through my involvement with my local Chamber of Commerce and BNI (Business Networking International).
I have also had a couple of forays into the world of stand-up comedy recently. It started as part of the Stand Up Challenge for charity and I have since found myself trying out new material in murky pubs! On the odd occasion I have been a guest, and co-hosted, a radio breakfast show on Black Country Radio. I have just started a blog (Resourceful Recruiter) aimed at independent recruitment business owners and Consultants who want to improve industry standards and professionalism.
