I graduated from University in 2018 with a Bachelor Hons Degree in Business and Travel. I chose this course as it meant that I had a variety of options when it came to my career, both subjects I feel very passionate about so combining the two made the course even more enjoyable and gave me the opportunity to branch out further in terms of career. Previous to my current role I worked for 7 years, part-time in a Gastro Pub. I started at Kensington’s in May 2019 as a Recruitment Consultant. I think the best part of my job is no day is the same and I am speaking with different clients and building relationships. From speaking with both clients and candidates I have learned so much about Additive manufacturing and I think one of the most interesting aspects is it is an industry that is always developing and creating new technologies. I am currently working within the UK and EU additive market.
What do you do when you are not working?
I am not someone who likes to be doing nothing and always likes to be outdoors on my weekends. I have two Labradors and we also have a family caravan in the Lakes. This is where I spend most of my time outside of work. I enjoy taking the dogs for long walks and just generally being outside. I also like to spend some days out with friends, whether that is shopping or going out for lunch.
Are there any people or books that have inspired you?
Angelina Jolie for her inspirational humanitarian work.
What are your 3 core values?
Positivity, Honesty & Kindness
What is your favourite thing about your job and working at Kensington’s?
We are only a small company and I think that this is one of my favourite things as we all work closely together and there is always a great spirit. I enjoy speaking to new people every day and gaining a better understanding of the market we work in, also knowing that part of my job is to help people find the right position for them and working individual with candidates to make sure that we are helping in the best way we can.
