I've worked as the Business Manager for Become's Manchester office for over 13 years and I run every aspect of the business day-to-day. I've been working in recruitment for over 18 years and I always pride myself on delivering a personable & professional service to both clients and candidates alike. After my A Levels, I originally worked as a Graphic Designer within the Manchester agency scene. I enjoyed Designing for both print & web for 4 years before deciding to make the switch to recruitment.
I've always been passionate about Design in many contexts, whether it's for the home, architectural design or within graphics. My favourite cities are Edinburgh, Rome and Bruges as they are steeped in history and are home to some beautiful buildings, festivals & scenery.
I'm the proud owner of my dog, Oscar, who is a cute award winning Westie. We often go for walks along the beaches of North Wales and Cornwall during holidays. My other hobbies and loves include supporting charity events, skiing, concerts, theatre shows and reading comedians' autobiographies. I dislike going to the gym and hangovers!
