I’m am R2R, Rec2Rec, Recruit to Recruit professional with over 19 years of experience gained in Recruit 2 Recruit & Executive recruitment.
My work initially focused on R2R across the UK but as my experience grew so did my service offerings which allowed me to work with SME & International consultancies across the globe.
Before moving to Australia I was previously a Founding Director & Head of International for a highly respected UK based R2R business launched in 2006. In 2010 my work shifted to focus on offering recruitment solutions into the Middle East, Americas, Asia and Australia. In this role I purely focused on R2R across all levels from Consultant to Senior Management with companies who supply recruitment into but not limited to; Construction, Property & Engineering, IT & Technology, Professional Services, Medical & Healthcare, Warehousing & Logistics.
In 2016, based in Australia, Preston James R2R, Rec2Rec, Recruitment to Recruitment was launched, with a clear focus on the Australia market but with a long term plan to expand our reach in multiple locations across Australia & Overseas.
I’m always interested in hearing from recruitment professionals looking discuss your career options and perhaps join the growing team at Preston James.
Please feel free to contact me in confidence.
Mother to one golf-mad Son! Most weekends are spent on caddy duty, walking miles around various golf courses and in my little down time, I enjoy a nice glass of red relaxing with my loved ones.
I started my recruitment career at the age of 21 back in my hometown on Leeds in the North of England and within 6 months specialised within the Rec2Rec market throughout the UK. Over the years I wanted to learn all aspects of recruitments from both sides, agency & internal. I've learnt many valuable lessons along the way whilst working for large international corporates through to SME and boutiques.
My passion has always been in the Rec2Rec space and worked the UK, Middle East and Australia markets with great success. I'm a classically trained headhunter which I enjoy thoroughly. I'd definitely say my strengths are operating in a proactive as opposed to a reactive way and I always work with speed and a matter of urgency on behalf of my clients and candidates.
I relocated to Australia in 2012 and have never once regretted making the move 'down under'.
In February 2018 I was fortunate enough to come into contact with my new boss (Matthew Wilson) the Founder of Preston James Rec2Rec who after many conversations encouraged me to step away from my own international headhunting business and come onboard to drive and develop the PJ brand further.
Here at Preston James, the team are specialists with helping recruiters in Australia as well as relocating recruitment professionals to Australia, both Matthew and I personally relocated from the UK with our families so can offer advice from our own experiences.
Always keen to talk with passionate and driven recruitment professionals looking to progress their recruitment careers here in Australia and the UK.
