I started in agency recruitment but soon realised that if you wanted to build world-class teams then you needed to be at the heart of hiring; recruiting internally. I've always been one of those relentlessly obsessive and curious people and, lucky for me, talent is a career where those traits are not only beneficial but actually championed.
As my career progressed I wanted to understand how big companies did things, so I went to Facebook and worked on building their initial product teams in London. After understanding how Facebook built their teams it felt natural to take those learnings and focus on helping earlier stage businesses navigate their own scaling challenges.
Helping advise early stage companies on how to build and manage their teams has always excited me. Building a great talent foundation at an early stage is such an essential part of a businesses future success and can lead to a real competitive advantage. I find supporting companies on that journey to be incredibly rewarding.
