Biography

After graduating in 2014 with a degree in Business Management, I worked in a small office for in a slow paced role and was bored at the lack of progression and opportunity. I decided to look for a faster paced career.

A year later, and relocation from a small village in Suffolk to Manchester, a career with Finlay James started as a Talent Consultant responsible for the development of new business opportunities.

1 year into the job, and after winning Rookie of the Year, I was promoted to Team Leader with 2 brilliant consultants in my team, another promotion followed 6 months on to a full Managing Consultant.

In my first year of management, I was in charge of the Business Development team based out of Manchester and grew from a team of 3 to a team of 5. We also finished the year as the top performing team in the business (percentage against target) which was a huge achievement and a great incentive followed.

The fast pace and progression continues as I have now taken on a bigger opportunity and a relocation back down south to take over the London office and a team of 9, following the departure of the branch manager who left to assist the opening our San Francisco office.

The most satisfying thing for me is helping our clients find the greatest sales talent in the marketplace and developing talent in my teams to help them be successful. If you are looking to grow your sales team, please get in touch!
