I’m a director and owner at ISL Recruitment, where we recruit for tech scaleups across the UK. I’ve spent almost 20 years in recruitment, with prior experience in sales and a degree in Business Studies.

At ISL, my role involves setting the strategic direction for the business, developing relationships with our key clients, and overseeing the commercial aspects of the business while guiding the leadership team.

I recently completed the Goldman Sachs 10,000 small businesses programme, run in conjunction with Said Business School, University of Oxford. This has given a thorough understanding of planning for growth, along with a strong alumni network.

Our focus at ISL is developing long term relationships with our clients and candidates, acting as a trusted advisor helping them to plan their talent strategy for growth.

Through mentoring schemes at UWE, Founders4Schools and volunteering with the Cranfield Trust, I’ve provided business advice and strategic planning guidance to a range of early stage individuals and businesses.
