Head of Fundraising @ St Gemmas
I’m the owner of Headway Recruitment. A recruitment firm that solves hiring challenges for purpose-led organisations. We are experts in finding people who fit your values and culture, enabling you to scale up whilst being committed to making a positive social and environmental impact. We do this using our unique Headway Recruitment Platform incorporating psychometric testing, candidate AI screening, and video interviewing.
We are a proud B Corp-certified company and are committed to making a positive social and environmental impact. We link our everyday work activities to charitable giving through our partnership with B1G1.
I believe that fair recruitment practices and purposeful leaders have the power to change the world. We’re looking to find businesses the best talent and ultimately see global business become a powerful force for good.
My psychometric profile is D (direct & driven). Those with a D Profile tend to enjoy competition and be energised by working toward a larger goal.
Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my 3 children. I also love sporting challenges and travel, ideally combining both! My favourite trip has to be my visit to Nepal, trekking to Everest base camp in 2019.
