I have lived and breathed the ‘recruitment world’ for over 20 years now so you could say, it’s really has got under my skin.  On this journey I have had the privilege of working with a wide array of people, colleagues, industries and role types.  There is never a dull moment in recruitment and that element of unpredictability, keeps it interesting.  One of my top highlights was being part of the birth of salt back in 2003 and seeing the business grow to what it is today. After a 6 year stint overseas I have returned to the fold and responsible for the Executive Contracting area here at salt. 

My favourite holiday destination is
Spain, particularly, San Sebastian. One of my favourite memories is travelling across a picturesque river to reach a beautiful quaint village and spending the day in a restaurant learning how to cook pintxos (tapas). The grand finale was sitting in the village square enjoying our beautiful food and sharing the moment with people from all around the globe.   

If I had a superpower
It would be the ability to transport myself anywhere in the world by just closing my eyes and visualising.  Imagine sitting at your desk feeling the Monday blues and being able to send yourself off to the Caribbean, the Mediterranean or somewhere exotic. Beam me up Scottie!

I never leave home without
My contacts, otherwise I would be blind as a bat and our roads wouldn’t be safe.

The song that always gets me on the dance floor is
‘Tainted Love’.  Oh yeah, the 80s were the best for those catchy tunes. In fact you won’t get me off the dance floor, if you are playing 80s tunes. Sad but true. Just ask my colleagues.

The best advice I’ve ever been given was
Kill them with kindness. It really works for those difficult folk that you come across occasionally in life. Thanks Mum!
