Director of Business Development - US/UK
I joined Finlay James after graduating with a Law degree from Manchester Metropolitan University. After a bit of travelling around Europe, I decided I was ready to move into a fast-paced sales environment and so joined Finlay James to get into the recruitment industry. Joining Finlay James was an easy choice for me due to the culture and people as well as the opportunity to learn quickly in a specialist environment. I joined as an Account Executive in 2013 generating new business opportunities in the Tech sales space.
In my first full year, I became 'Top Biller' and was promoted to Managing Consultant. I was able to retain my title as Top Biller the following year as well as building a new business focused team with 5 members. We were the team with the highest percentage against target that year. From here, I then opened up the Finlay James London office growing the team to 9 within a year and have since been instrumental in helping to set up our new San Francisco office.
My role now focuses on helping clients and candidates in the tech sector on a global scale! I’m excited to see what other plans and growth Finlay James has over the next couple of years. Each year gets even more exciting.
