I created Xpert Resourcing with my business partner Paul in 2016 when we noticed a gap in the market for a local agency providing an honest, professional, and friendly service to both candidates and clients.

My vision for the future of Xpert Resourcing is for us to become the 'Agency of Choice' for both candidates and clients and I hope to be known as an honest and respected recruiter who is able to offer a consultative and tailor made service to fulfil my clients individual needs. 

Since leaving university I have been very fortunate to have had a very successful career working within recruitment and prior to launching Xpert Resourcing I spent fifteen years working for two large corporate recruiters at consultant and managerial level. Throughout my career I have acquired a wealth of experience and knowledge and I have a proven track record for gaining results, delivering service excellence and using my skills to encourage and develop others.

Having lived in and around Cambridge for around 18 years I have extensive experience as a hands on recruiter, gained within a mixture of global recruitment businesses and smaller local independent recruitment agencies.

We decided to set up Xpert Resourcing, (with my business partner Emma) as we wanted to work with clients in a ‘smarter’ way and that is exactly what you will get with Xpert Resourcing. No ‘hard sell’ or random sales calls, just a simple and professional service from experienced consultants with genuine knowledge in their market.

My strengths have always been developing relationships with clients and candidates, although with young children some might say my strengths are also surviving on very little sleep, acting as a taxi service for my children’s numerous sporting activities and juggling a million things at once!

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you require support for your business or with your job search.

Wine and most things sport related!
