What’s my background?

Having recently been reunited with the Gradconsult family after 3 years of travelling, I have finally returned to continue my career and settle down! Along with the great working culture and amazing people I am excited to further develop my knowledge in the education sector and keen to learn and master techniques in which best develop and grow organisations and individuals.

What do I do at Gradconsult?

I am a Project Consultant supporting my colleagues and clients to ensure success within each stage of the recruitment cycle. Through my role as President of Sheffield Hallam Students’ Union I have worked on many student engagement projects and strategies and have gained a deep understanding of how universities, employers and students each play a part bringing more student facing energy!

Examples of recent things I’ve been working on include:

  • Shadowing and learning from the best of the best…. My GC teamies!
  • Assisting with the delivery and design of full-day assessment centre programmes
  • Helping with everyone in the team whatever the task

Life loves

  • Memes
  • A competition of any kind (I have a 99.9% winning rate)
  • Grabbing a bargain but then finding out it has a further discount… YES!

Pet peeves

  • Not recycling – do your part!
  • People who listen with the intent to respond rather than understand
  • That person in the group who doesn’t buy a round (Espresso Martini please!)
