Vanessa

Director-Adam HR

I fell into recruitment.

My degree is life science degree and I did a placement year at Pfizer in medical research. I loved the theory of it, but practically it was quite a lonely, slow-paced career. I craved the buzz of a rich, vibrant working environment. When I left uni I joined Sainsbury's on their grad scheme, handling a lot of HR and recruitment. I LOVED the recruitment angle so made the fateful step into working for an agency.

Throughout my career I've mainly worked across the marketing and HR markets, settling into HR in 2002 and never looking back. I simply love HR candidates! I find them utterly fascinating. It's a joy to learn about their experiences and how they personally deliver their brand of HR magic. I don't think anyone chooses to go into recruitment, but after all these years I still love my job. It never gets boring.

You can expect an honest, pragmatic approach from me, with advice derived from years of successful campaigns. For me, the privilege of helping someone develop their career and adding true value to a business is what it's all about.

I have a busy home life with 2 teenage daughters and a naughty Cockapoo. I love cooking, wine tasting & taking wine exams, running 5ks and can usually be found plotting my next foreign adventure in any quiet moment I can find.
