I broke both of my arms at the same time, the day before my birthday.

What is the best thing about working at HRC?

HRC has a very supportive culture where everyone is rooting for each other and their progression. It’s a great business with a market stronghold and our consultants are held in very high regard across industry and profession – which is something I am really excited to be a part of and continue to grow.

What is your biggest achievement as a recruiter?

Building a strong and enduring portfolio of my own clients from the very beginning of my career – and still working with the same clients today. Relationships which are based on trust mean everything to me, and it is very rewarding when organisations and people continue working with me over the years and having repeat business.
