My specialism:

I recruit for Building Surveyors, Quantity Surveyors and Project Managers (ranging from Graduate to Partner level).

My approach to recruitment:

I pride myself on providing a consultative and tailored approach to candidates and clients alike. I work with a range of firms and so can carefully select those that fit the candidate’s requirements, and vice versa. I pride integrity and reliability above all else and therefore essentially treat each person with respect and consideration.

Clients that I work with:

I predominantly work with consultancies and client-side organisations – these range from large firms (e.g. CBRE, JLL etc) to smaller independent practices, even those consisting of 1-2 people looking to expand.

What keeps me motivated:

I am a people-person and (fortunately) that is what runs the recruitment industry! It is extremely satisfying to check in with candidates who, through myself, have made a move for the better – the celebratory lunch always goes down well too.

What keeps me busy at the weekend:

I’ll usually either be doing a Spanish exchange, at the gym or going for a long country walk (followed by a huge roast of course)!

My favourite food:

Fresh pasta (ideally in Italy) always goes down a treat!

My favourite eatery:

Pasta Ripiena in Bristol is my new favourite.

My favourite book/film:

Sally Rooney writes beautifully, so anything by her!

My favourite drink:

Mojito

My favourite travel destination:

Madrid – I lived there for a while so it will always feel like my second home!

Not many people know this about me:

Unfortunately for my colleagues, I try and shoehorn in the fact that I speak Spanish whenever the opportunity presents itself!
