What is your role at Concept? 

Executive Consultant 

What areas do you specialise in?

Public and Private Sector 

Tell us about your recruitment journey so far:
I started working in recruitment 20 years ago and specialised in Accountancy and Finance, managing perm and contract teams for Michal Page in Essex before taking a break on maternity leave. On returning to recruitment, I spent a year working in Automotive Engineering which enabled me to work with some exciting businesses like JLR and Aston Martin. In 2015 I relocated my family to Birmingham and join an IT specialist. My journey within IT was also my first introduction to working within the public sector which is very different to the private sector. My role involves working with business to understand their challenges and resource needs.

Why Concept?

Concept were a competitor of mine and I’d heard good things from customers and people working there. I was invited to interview for a role by my previous manager who had joined Concept and was excited about the opportunity for development and growth with the business. Joining a company where I would be working for someone I respected and had worked with previously definitely had its plus points, but I was impressed by everyone I met during the interview process. I found them to be professional, honest, knowledgeable, and approachable. I love the fact that Concept is a business that’s ambitious about growth and that I can be part of that journey too.

What do you like to do in your spare time?

In my spare time as a Mom I love spending time with my family and our dog. I love to be outside in nature and whenever possible, getting out into the countryside near where I live for long walks. I enjoy yoga, pilates and any exercise that doesn’t involve too much sweating! I'm a massive history nerd and always listening to a podcast or watching a program about history most days.
