​Why I joined Better Placed :For me culture is everything, and as soon as I met the team it was clear to me that this was the right place for me to achieve my ambitions. I think the company ethos and feel is vitally important in a recruitment environment and that is what I got from Better Placed. Why Send me your CV :With many years’ experience in Manufacturing Recruitment, both internally and externally I have a strong understanding of what a client wants from a candidate. I thrive on building strong working relationships and believe that is key to putting the best people into the best jobs. One thing you didn’t know about me : I am a trained Olympic diver and can do a double flip from a 10m board. ​

Joint Managing Director

​Specialist Areas – FMCG, Retail, Consumer DurablesI was one of the three founding members of Better Placed in 2001 and I've since been integral in building the business. My particular network has grown into many different areas over the last 19 years in recruitment, but always with a particular bias towards sales and marketing professionals into consumer markets.I now recruit senior executive and board level roles into both blue chip branded businesses as well as smaller, owner managed and private equity backed businesses. When I'm not recruiting for my clients, I am always looking for talent for Better Placed and making sure the business continues to attract people who care about the work we do and are constantly improving the way we do business.Outside of work I invest time and money in developing our house (which we started when the recession hit us back in 2008!), coaching and watching my kids play hockey and rugby and playing hockey and golf myself to keep (relatively) fit.

​Why did you join Better Placed? :I joined Better Placed after returning to the UK following 2 years of travelling. I spent a year living in the French Alpes working for a ski company / perfecting my skiing technique and the following year travelling around South East Asia. Better Placed appealed to me due to their reputation in the market, after exploring a number of different marketing recruitment businesses it was clear Better Placed had existing relationships with a vast number of exciting FMCG / Consumer brands across the country!Why send me your CV :I have relationships with a whole variety of companies from large blue chip Food organisations to exciting entrepreneurial start ups! All of which I am happy to discuss. I also offer a more tailored approach to many other recruiters where I will work proactively on your behalf to provide a spectrum of interesting opportunities which may not have been otherwise available.The one thing you don’t know about me? - I have ridden an ostrich!
