Where are you from?

Somerset, England

What's your past work experience?

I originally utilised my Psychology degree working within the Mental Health sector, supporting children and young adults in Mental Health Hospitals as well as carrying out a leadership role with an advocacy charity that supported victims of domestic violence.

I made a career change to recruitment, working as a permanent consultant in recruitment agencies specialising in corporate services. I developed into leadership positions in the internal Recruitment and Talent Hub departments of the National Health Service, leading workforce teams and managing pilot projects that focused on ways to innovatively recruit, train and retain workforce across Health and Social Care.
