I always say if I didn't have to pay any bills I would love to work in Karen Millen again. Plus points - AMAZING wardrobe full of clothes. Negative points - I had no money as spent it all on clothes 🙂
Mum and Step Mum of 3 amazing boys! Jack (18), Ollie (10) and Sebby (7).
I've worked within the Recruitment space for almost 20 years and had the opportunity to work within a multitude of different sectors including Sales, Field Marketing, Contact Centres, FMCG and most recently Investment Banking.
Being a young mum (I had Jack when I was 20) I knew that I always wanted to push myself to be the best version of me and strive for a great career to show him what you can do. I never went to University so within each job I've had, I've been a sponge to learn and develop my skills from the great mentors I've had and signing up to all courses and learning paths available within those businesses which has lead me to the amazing role I have today. Everyone's path is different, so don't be afraid to take the one that feels right for you.
Outside of work I love going to the gym or putting my earphones in and getting out for a big walk (often weather permitting in NI!). I find it really useful to be able to help me clear the mind, destress and also energize me for the day ahead.
My all time favourite hobby is definitely getting away on holiday with family and friends. People normally laugh as I usually have at least 1 or 2 holidays planned ahead at any one time. I just love great food, great company and switching off to spend quality time with loved ones and building memories.

I've been really lucky in the mentors I've had throughout my career so far so have always been like a sponge with them as love to know the detail of EVERYTHING! A phrase that has always stuck with me is 'seek to understand'
I wanted to be a Doctor!!!
I have really enjoyed my career journey so far but if I was to start again I think I would have worked harder in school to give me a more solid educational background
