Whitewing ties in with my faith and my hobby for bird and wildlife photography. The precious stone, Lapis Lazuli, works with my favoured colour giving the whole blue spectrum to choose from; its properties have a personal meaning and represent Honour, Spirit, Wisdom and Truth; four characteristics I totally believe in.
I am a credible, award-winning Recruiter who, spent the first 10 years of my career on stage as a professional entertainer. I sang, danced and laughed my way around the UK and Europe, learning to engage with people. I still sing & compare and host corporate events; it’s in my blood.
In 1992, having never quite made the West End, I returned to the UK and used my skills to join the recruitment industry as a Permanent Vacancy Recruitment Consultant. I spent 15 years with Spring Personnel, gaining promotion to Branch Manager to Regional Manager, followed by Training Manager; training consultants across the UK in groups and on a 1-2-1 basis, teaching 360-degree Recruitment processes.
In 1998, on the cusp of our first child, I returned home to York and built a team of 11 amazing staff in a £3 million turnover operation. We won prestigious contracts with Terry’s of York, Network Rail, Goldenfry Foods and many SME clients that were the backbone of the business, in both the manufacturing and the service industry. This led to a variety of awards and recognition, not just for me, but also my team.
In February 2007, I co-founded mpeople Recruitment. In our first year, we topped £1 million turnover. mpeople thrives to this day. My team and I continued to win awards.
In April 2018, I established Whitewing Recruitment & Training Services Limited; independently branching out to continue my fantastic life journey that is recruitment. It is a privilege to recruit amazing people and support successful businesses.
