I'm a career adviser, recruitment consultant & coach. I use my years of experience, training & intuition to provide a unique modern consultancy service that empowers working professionals looking to make a positive impact in the work place. I connect these talented people with companies, organisations & charities that need their skills, passion & energy.
I specialise in helping my clients find jobs that have a purpose & economic rewards. My customers come from different work backgrounds & different stages in their work life (just left education - return to work mums - escape the city).
When I was 14 someone asked me
‘what I want to do in life.’ I honestly had no idea but I did know one thing and I answered
‘I just want to be happy’.
Little did I know that this answer would keep me centred and focused whenever I made a decision throughout my studies and during my 20 year career so far. I consider myself lucky to have tuned in to this so young. It lead me to studying and qualifying in a degree in Social Psychology and then on to a working life which has always been about helping people.
I worked for a large blue chip retail company as an HR Manager for 5 years and then moved on to HR Consultancy and Recruitment where I worked with 3 different companies. Alongside some of these jobs I also ran my own reflexology business whilst bringing up our two children.
I found great satisfaction in all of my roles and I did feel happy but I soon realised there was another factor to consider which was finding meaning in what I was doing. So, when the balance moved from helping people, to putting daily and annual targets as a priority long term my contentment changed. Working on number crunching rather than being people focused wasn’t for me. I had given my energy wholeheartedly but I was ready to put my skills to use in a different working environment that helped me meet my need to be content and find meaning in what I was doing. So, Meaningful Recruitment was born - this is a place where I feel meaningful in what I do and I would love to help you find the right balance in what you do, so you feel fulfilment in your work life too.
