I have over 14 years’ experience working in branding and design management recruitment. I’ve worked at two leading agencies in the sector, spending nearly seven years heading up the branding and design management team at Major Players before leaving to work independently in 2010.
I focus primarily on design and branding, working with a large network of agencies, from larger, group owned consultancies to medium-sized independents and boutique agencies.
My philosophy is simple; to offer the best possible service and solutions to both candidates and clients and develop strong, long term relationships. I work with senior, middleweight and junior positions and love meeting people with energy and ambition. I’m honest, upfront, and know the sector extremely well; always ready to offer industry or career advice where necessary, remaining as impartial as possible to help build your career.
