Leadership

We opened the doors of Agenda Partnership in 2012 hoping to provide people solutions that customers found accessible and helpful. Agenda Partnership is just that, a partnership, grown from the common approach of our two owners, Richard and Tom.

I love helping people. I get a real buzz from knowing that people are enjoying what they do, and doing it as well as they can. This is why the people services sector fits so well for me. Helping someone into a new role that they enjoy or helping people to develop to be the best version of themselves is what makes my work at Agenda Partnership so enjoyable.

I have spent all of my career working in people services organisations. Following on from a degree in business management I started a career in the recruitment industry, building up to running a very successful region for one of the largest industrial recruitment providers. After eight years I had grown the region to £20m turnover from 11 profit centres and decided to move into heading up a recruitment and training business in the healthcare sector and then an online recruitment and marketing business. Seeing there to be a niche for a business that provided a wider range of solutions through a personal service I took the leap into setting one up with Tom almost five years ago.

I now fill my time with my family, playing live music in a rockabilly band and giving back a little as a school governor.

I have been in the recruitment and people development industry for just over 8 years and I get a real buzz in helping others achieve life goals! I would suggest I am a recruitment expert with experience of recruiting all levels of seniority across most industries in the UK and overseas. I would describe myself as productive, proactive, knowledgeable, outgoing, professional, approachable, positive, honest, reliable, and motivated individual (other adjectives, please insert here) with nothing but an interest for my clients, candidates and delegates.

FYI- I love to talk (and can talk very loud at times!), I love to drink coffee (black, no sugar) and I have a memory like an elephant (so my friends and family say!). Hobbies include- Football, football, football!
