MY STORY 

MY STORY 

If I could go back in time and give advice to 16 year old me, It would be 'brace yourself, your career is going to be incredible'...

I began my journey as Banqueting staff over Christmas of 2003 in a well renowned hotel near my home, and before my feet even touched the ground, I was hooked! Seeing the sheer delight on the faces of guests as they wined, dined and partied the whole night through, gave me a buzz that I had never felt before, and I knew I was 'home'.

Late nights, early starts and 'wow' moments were definitely just the tip of the iceberg within the early days of my career, and as I climbed the ranks to Team Leader, then Deputy Manager and finally Head of Department, I realised how fortunate I was to be doing what I loved each and every day.

I continued to embrace challenges and opportunities, treating them as if they were my last; after all, all good things must come to an end, right? Wrong! 

In 2016 I was given the opportunity to join a well established Recruitment company as an 'ex-industry professional', where not only did I place candidates into various permanent and temporary roles, often for high profile events and functions, I could still work these events too - result!

Fast forward to the present day, and I often sit and reflect on my career to date, and think how lucky I was to have had the most amazing mentors, managers, colleagues, staff and clients...I will forever be grateful to those who helped me become the professional I am today, and I am super excited to be able to share my knowledge and experience to support candidates and clients alike, on a freelance basis.

Please note, I am happy to discuss recruitment requirements with companies from all sectors, and in all UK locations.

SERVICES

CURRICULUM VITAE & COVER LETTER SUPPORT 

First impressions count! 
Before you have even bagged yourself that all important interview, hiring managers and recruiters will review your CV and cover letter, and make assumptions about who you are as a person, and your experience.  As someone who has seen (quite literally) thousands of CVs and cover letters through my career, I am well placed to provide support and guidance on what works well, and equally, what doesn't.
I can tailor services to meet the requirements of job seekers from all walks of life, professions and sectors.  So whether you are a school leaver wanting to work in retail, or a manufacturing supervisor looking to secure a promotion, I can help. 
For a no obligation chat and quote, why not get in touch today? 

Please note that this service is offered via e-mail, and in line with GDPR guidelines. 

INTERVIEW COACHING 

Now it is time to ace that interview! 
It is no secret that interviews can be a daunting process, but they don't have to be.  I have lost count of the number of times otherwise seemingly strong candidates have stumbled at this hurdle, and as such I am offering a coaching service to get candidates through this painstaking process with confidence.  
As with the CV and cover letter support, this service is available to people from all walks of life, regardless of career level and sector. 
This service is currently being offered via the telephone, and coaching lasts circa 1 hour depending on requirements.  

HEAD HUNTING SERVICE 

Quality over quantity! 
I am a firm believer in only referring candidates to employers that are suitable for interview; I have never been one for playing the numbers game, I.E just sending CVs to make it seem like I am working hard.  The truth is, Head Hunting in the right way takes dedication, perseverance and integrity.  I will work with you to ensure you are fully informed of where I am at in the process every step of the way.  If you are looking for a recruiter who takes pride in the candidates that are put forward for a role, then look no further!
I have successfully placed General Managers, Head Chefs and Food and Beverage Associates, as well as Conference and Event Managers, Ski Resort Chefs, Kitchen Porters & more! 
I ensure I work within the guidelines of GDPR, and I ensure all right to work documentation is valid and in date. 
I have various qualifications, including a certificate in HR Fundamentals, Level 3 ILM in Leadership and Management and a Food Safety certificate in Allergen awareness.  

Please note, I am happy to discuss recruitment requirements with companies from all sectors, and in all UK locations.

LINKEDIN COACHING 

Making your presence known! 
LinkedIn can be a powerful tool, and I can help with content and post suggestions to stand out from the crowd.  If you would like coaching on this, please get in touch today to discuss your requirements.  

 

MISSION STATEMENT

&

VALUES

My mission is simple.  'To provide an unrivalled level of service to both companies and candidates alike'.  
My values are reflected in the first four letters of my name, and have been fundamental to my success thus far...
C = Conscientious A = Accountable T = Trustworthy H = Honest 

I am extremely hard working and take great pride in all that I do.  My mission and values really are more than just words to me, and this is reflected in the outstanding reviews and feedback I have received throughout my career.  
I firmly believe people may not always remember exactly what you did, or what you said, but they will ALWAYS remember exactly how you made them feel!
