What did you do before you joined Kirkland Associates

Before I joined Kirkland Associates I was at university studying Equestrian Psychology and Sport Science at Nottingham Trent University and worked in a hotel waitressing for weddings, private dinners and golf events. I joined Kirkland Associates shortly after I graduated.

What is the best part of your job?

The best part of my job is building relationships with candidates and seeing them through the whole recruitment process, from the point where you receive their initial interest to when they get a job offer. It is just a good feeling when you speak to someone at the end to deliver really good news, especially when you have gotten to know them.

What did you want to be when you were growing up?

When I was growing up I wanted to be a racehorse jockey, however as I grew up I changed my mind and wanted to become a Veterinary Physiotherapist. I was 100% set on doing this until my second year of university where I bought my own horse and wanted to keep horse related things as a hobby.

If you could choose your last meal, what would it be?

This is literally the most difficult question because I am absolutely obsessed with food, but if I really had to choose I would go with halloumi fries to start, then a cheese burger with extra cheese, crispy bacon with skinny fries and to finish Nutella covered churros.

What is your guilty pleasure?

My guilty pleasure is that when I get home from work I will chill out watching Netflix eating Nutella straight from the jar with a spoon!
