Getting the right talent is demanding for any organisation, and as a General Manager of a busy team I value efficiency. I knew outsourcing recruitment was going to save me hours of time immediately after a scoping conversation with Karen from Smart Talent. Thanks, to Karen, even after some unforeseen setbacks we appointed the right candidate in under two weeks. I recommend Karen if you want a highly professional service, with guarantee of integrity when looking for technical talent.

I have always been passionate about people, from the initial meeting to discovering their story and journey so far and hearing their dreams for the future. I am continuously keen to assist others, and some of my peers say I am a natural people connector and motivator.  

I have enjoyed a 30-year career in the UK, South Africa, New Zealand, and Australia, thriving in general management, sales, marketing, operations, communications, recruitment, and training in various industry sectors. Most of my roles have involved recruiting, training and professional development of teams. I believe in offering a personal service, especially in today’s world where candidates can feel forgotten in the job-seeking process.

Having worked in the private and public sectors, large organisations, small family businesses and being self-employed, I understand the challenges employers face regarding recruitment, growth, and personnel retention. If you are looking for great talent, we listen to your needs and deliver an efficient and personalised service tailored to suit the requirements of your business.   

I understand how daunting it can be when looking for a new role. During these challenging times, you may have faced redundancy; you may consider changing to a new industry or applying for positions and not getting an interview. If you are a job seeker or looking for some career advice and direction, we will help and guide you toward your next dream role.   

Aside from my passion for people, I’m a keen traveller, an aspiring photographer, a bookworm, a would-be author, and I’ve heard I’m a great cook.         

Let’s work together, connect with me now for a FREE 20-minute consultation to discuss your individual needs.
