I’ve worked in the recruitment industry for almost my entire career and feel as passionate about it today as I did when I first began. What excites me most about the business we’ve created is the impact its having on our clients and candidates. I strongly believe that recruitment should be a positive experience – one that’s memorable and based on trust. I’m proud to lead a team of exceptionally talented recruiters who genuinely care about the people they work with, and are excited about reshaping recruitment.

Having founded Humankind in 2012, I’m excited to be introducing Kin to the market. I believe the employee experience begins before starting a new role, and I’m excited to offer exceptional client and candidate experiences through our wonderful team. I’m grateful for the team we’ve brought together and the clients who have supported us from day one. We believe Kin will add strength to Humankind’s ability to achieve our vision: helping build the best workplaces in the world.

My journey in recruitment started more than 10 years ago, and I have worked in both agency and internal recruitment environments. At Kin, I feel as though I’m working in a blend of the two! I have recruited roles across a variety of sectors and levels, and enjoy the search component that often comes with complex roles. I love the open, honest, and supportive environment at Kin, and the amazing feeling I get when I help bring the right client together with the right candidate.

I have a very simple philosophy when it comes to recruitment: I care about people and I treat them the way I want to be treated. Having worked in the industry for more than 10 years, I believe a good recruitment process is well planned, collaborative, and stress-free. I love to take time to understand the uniqueness of each client and each candidate, and then bring the two together.

I love working collaboratively with clients and candidates, really getting alongside them and understanding what makes them tick. I find it hugely satisfying to connect great candidates with new opportunities and equally help clients find their next amazing hire. I first started in recruitment over 10 years ago and over that time I’ve held numerous roles, worn many hats and brought people together to achieve beautiful things. I believe the recruitment process is creative – part art, part science, and a whole lot of conversations!

Watching a clients business go from strength to strength with a single hire is something I find extremely rewarding. At Kin I love having the opportunity to meet some of the best leaders and innovators in business while helping incredible people land amazing opportunities. I’ve been in the HR and recruitment industry for over 10 years and have a strong interest in the search aspect of the recruitment process.

I believe that loving the work you do is fundamental to fulfilment. Professionally I can't think of anything more important than creating a perfect match for both client and candidate. I believe in honesty and equality in the process. I have a background in general management and have also developed and ran my own web-based recruitment business. I'm thrilled to be part of the Kin team with like-minded passionate people.

For me, great recruitment is all about building strong relationships. I believe in operating in an open and authentic way to ensure both my clients and candidates have a positive experience. My background is in account management and more recently in recruitment. I’m really excited to be a part of the team at Kin and to work with a talented group of specialists who live and breathe the Kin values that underpin everything we do, such as ‘helping people to love what they do and do what they love’.

My belief is that businesses are judged on all their collective interactions - internal and external. Leading a recruitment process is one of those key interactions where you get to connect with people, tell part of your story and really demonstrate what makes you tick. I love working with organisations throughout their recruitment process to deliver an authentic experience that attracts candidates who not only have the right skills to do the job, but who will be the perfect fit for your team. I love that at Kin we partner with you to provide great value support exactly where and when you need it.

I love business and know the value of strong finance and operations management during growth. I like supporting the team at Kin to provide exceptional client experiences and also be the contact for our clients on any accounts matters. Working with my wife is awesome, most of the time - we understand the value of teamwork and together with the rest of the Kin team are excited about the future.
