What’s my background?

I graduated in Law from the University of Sheffield in July 2017. I began to explore oppurtunities within Sheffield after university, and I joined Gradconsult in October 2017. While it was a slightly unusual route, I am delighted to have found the company and to be working here. At University, I worked as part of the Miscarriages of Justice Review Centre, helping to investigate claims of innocence from convicted criminals. I have worked in a number of customer service roles both before and after University and I now am keen to explore the world of graduate recruitment. You can find out more about my history and my current work on my LinkedIn profile.

What do I do at Gradconsult?

In my role as a Project Consultant at Gradconsult, I have continued my development and broadened my range of work. I have recently been project managing the RISE SCR programme, as well as assisting in the delivery of other work with the other consultants. I am thoroughly enjoying learning more about our sector and working alongside industry experts every day.

Examples of some of the recent projects I have worked on include:

  • RISE SCR, liaising with SME employers about their graduate recruitment requirements
  • Desk research on graduate schemes, including 'best practise' and reccommendations for a client
  • Delivering workshops on employability, mindset and mock assessment centre tasks for a University
  • Assisting with the management of various social media streams
  • Speaking to final-year university students about non-linear career options


Life loves

  • Cooking (especially the eating part!) and running my food blog and instagram account
  • Watching sports, particularly American Football, Rugby and Cricket
  • Quoting Gavin and Stacey, The Office & Peep Show
  • Jazzy shirts

Pet peeves

  • Overpriced restaurants
  • People who take themselves seriously
  • The phrase "giving 110%"
