About me

​Recruiting real estate and property professionals

​I started my career as a Chartered Surveyor before entering the world of recruitment with Cobalt in 2005. Since then, I have built and led teams of recruiters in the UK, Abu Dhabi and New Zealand. I spent seven years working for the global real estate advisory business Cushman & Wakefield running their talent acquisition function and recently returned to the Cobalt business to support them in developing bespoke solutions for clients.

Creating lasting partnerships with clients

I work with our clients to create lasting partnerships to support them in delivering their recruitment plans. I am developing a range of solutions from retained project work through to consulting and fully outsourced recruitment solutions.

My passion for recruitment

I am passionate about creating recruitment products that really work for our clients. I have worked in recruitment for many years and have learnt that the most successful solutions are those where we act as an extension of our client's team. This enables us to really get under the skin of what it is like to work for our clients to ensure we find the best possible candidates.

Family, sports and travelling

Outside of work I love hanging out with my two young children and husband. We love to eat delicious food from around the world and travel as much as possible. If we are not travelling, we are usually cooking up a feast at home or running around playing sports to work up an appetite!

I am interested in speaking to leaders across the real estate industry including real estate advisors, real estate investors, property companies, real estate funds and developers to discuss developing a talent strategy to source the best and most diverse candidates in the market supporting internal HR teams with their hiring needs and staff retention. If you're in the real estate industry and up for this discussion then please get in touch.
