With 7 years' industry experience (1 years' marketing agency experience; 6 years' creative and marketing recruitment experience), I run one of the two freelance desks here, supporting in-house teams and agencies, in Central England, with freelance resource across vast variety of skill sets from creative, client services, marketing, digital, development, etc.
My career in recruitment started working for a small recruitment business as an Assistant Resourcing and Marketing Manager. I then moved on to working for a marketing agency as an Account Executive, where the role involved junior level client management, on and offline project management and liaising with Creative, Studio and Development teams.
I am definitely, first and foremost, a people person. I love talking to new and existing freelancers, to understand their freelance offering, what works for them and what doesn’t, sharing industry news, and above all, supporting them throughout their freelance career. To guide and support someone who is about to embark on their freelance journey and see them thrive - that is why I do what I do. I love getting to know our clients’ businesses, culture and what makes them tick. For me, it really is all about building relationships with our clients and freelancers and working hard to find suitable contractors for our clients’ temporary resource needs.
I love happy clients and freelancers. That’s what puts the fire in my belly!
