About meI'm a passionate Recruiter / Talent Acquisition Consultant, covering Europe and have a background in law as a practising lawyer for just under 5 years (in private practice).
In 2011 I moved to legal recruitment with Michael Page and joined Laurence Simons in January 2013. Since then I have been focusing on (senior) in-house counsel and compliance recruitment in Western, Northern and Central and Eastern Europe.
Candidates and clients appreciate me as an engaged, dedicated, detail-oriented, mature and professional recruiter who considers all the interests of all parties involved. I work on junior to senior searches (from Paralegal level to Group General Counsel level, and everything in between).
I have an eye for matching talent to our clients' needs and love opening candidates' and clients' eyes in terms of new opportunities, skills and career possibilities.
I truly enjoy working on complex and cross-border projects and sourcing the best candidates in the market. Furthermore, I enjoy building up relationships with clients and candidates.
Specialties include: job search strategy, career coaching, resume writing, a-z recruiting, headhunting, LinkedIn makeovers and copywriting. I'm also an enthusiastic photographer and enjoy trying new wines.
