What did you want to be when you were younger?
It was my dream to become an Air hostess; travel, see the world, until I discovered I have a terrible fear of flying. Even now I get a 4 hour boat to Liverpool instead of a 20 minute flight!
What is your favourite movie?
I just love a typical rom com, fall in love and everything is perfect – The Holiday (I’m a dreamer)
Where will you be found outside of work?
I could lie but I have to admit my sofa
Early riser or night owl?
I am definitely an early riser, I find if I am at home I have to have a nanna nap in the afternoon, it’s all downhill in the evening
Do you have any party tricks/ talents?
Can I just honestly say no to this?
Best thing about working for Paragon?
I have worked in recruitment for a long time, I am extremely passionate about assisting people find their first or their next role. I take a more relaxed approach in my interview technique as I strive to find out about what makes people tick and their personality traits. We have such fantastic Directors here and a team who all help each other and support each other, teamwork is so important and is reflective in our success.
