I have 18 highly successful years of recruitment experience, gained in both Executive Search and general recruitment roles. Before joining the company, I spent the previous 5 years working for a leading Insurance specialist recruitment company, and prior to that, learnt my trade in Search, working for a leading UK Search firm. This is where I met Miles Eden (our MD, who also runs our sister company, Eden James Consulting) and where we received first class training in Search methodology. To this day, we still religiously apply the 24 step recruitment process learnt there, because, quite frankly, it works well to attract and secure the industry’s top talent for any given role.
My earlier career was spent working for two local general recruitment agencies in my home town of Portsmouth, mainly recruiting for local Insurers across all disciplines. I have been a top performer in all of my roles, which I have achieved by building trusted, confidential, open and honest relationships with my clients and candidates. This results in an interview:placement ratio that is significantly better than the recruitment industry’s average.
I recruit for mid to senior insurance hires up to Director level across all classes of business, in both the London and Regional markets. Recent successful hires include: CEO – Personal Lines Insurer; Operations Manager – Lloyd’s Syndicate; Class Underwriter A&H – Lloyd’s Syndicate; Head of Risk & Compliance – Regional Insurer.
I spend much of my spare time with my daughter, who is at the age where I feel more like a chauffeur than a parent! We like going on hikes, swimming and going out to eat. I also enjoy live music and holidays abroad.
