Qualified as a solicitor 2001
1. Tell us one interesting fact about you?
I have a miniature shetland called Peanut who stands just 34 inches high.
2. What is your perfect holiday?
Pre children, it would have been relaxing in Italy or partying in Miami. These days, standards are somewhat lower. The only pre-requisites are sun, sea, a cocktail in hand and my three children safely tucked away in the hotel kids club. I don't think that's asking too much!!
3. What is the first thing someone considering changing jobs should do?
Talk to an experienced recruiter with a reputable agency which is big enough to have good market coverage. You need to get a feel for the market - which firms are looking, will they look at someone with your experience, what is your competition like? It's a case of supply and demand and you need to find out where you sit in that equation at any one time.
4. Why did you choose a career in recruitment?
Turning my back on my career as a solicitor at almost 4PQE was a big step but it's the best career move I ever made. I enjoy the total lack of hierarchy, the autonomy to shape my own business and build long-term relationships that are rewarding for me not an equity partner. It's great to still be part of the legal market but I've never once regretted my decision to step over to the dark side!
