Inside The Shoes

Clicking my heels together 3 times and making it happen! I work with individuals and Co’s mentoring and facilitating, I am THE recruiter you need to work with.

I thought I should take the opportunity to tell you a little about me; I spend so much time finding out all about candidates, clients, and businesses it is only right that I tell you about me!

I live in the beautiful Forest of Dean in Gloucestershire UK, I have a 6 year old son who keeps me highly entertained when he is not at school, and I have been running Birchwood Recruitment for over 3 years.

After graduating from university with a 2:2 BA Honours in Organisation Studies I worked as a Sales Representative for a privately owned packaging company selling glamorous products including cardboard boxes, packing tape and bubble wrap, throughout Gloucestershire and South Wales.

In 1998 I joined a recruitment business as a trainee consultant; constant achievement meant that I was promoted 5 times in 6 years and was a partner at the company for the following 5 years. During that time I became a specialist in working with Non-Food FMCG recruitment within the niche of the Toy sector, and I am now a respected recruiter of Sales and Marketing personnel within this specialist area. I have over 14 years experience of recruiting, and I am considered by many as a valuable resource and a trusted person within many market sectors.

Above all I am ethical and I care; I understand how people work. I am exceptional at not only spotting talent but making sure that talent is given the opportunity to grow and develop within the right company; and I stick around and work with companies on a long term basis. I have recruited staff for some of the brightest and most exciting businesses in the UK; I create new teams and I also add to existing ones.

I work with all types of businesses on bespoke projects and really excel when working with boards to create the best possible Sales and Marketing teams. It is about the people and not the placements and more often than not in these types of projects the last thing that the company needs to do is recruit, yes I am a recruiter and yes I did just say that; call me to find out more about how we can work together.

I work with individuals from all disciplines and at all levels who want to create their own career ladder; your career is your responsibility, your responsibility to make sure that you are talking to the right people. I care about how this looks both now and in the future, I care not only about where you want to go but how you want to get there; I facilitate that path.

The purpose of this blog is to clear some of the misconceptions of the recruitment industry, more importantly it is make sure that whether you are an employer or an employee you are doing the right things at the right time, with integrity.

To find out how we can best work together please contact me in the best way for you for a totally confidential discussion
