CORE Profile

I'm a lead consultant at COREcruitment and look after both Chef and FOH Managers for small and large restaurant groups alike. I have been working for COREcrutiment now for over four years and have loved every minute of my time here! We get to speak to some great people and some VERY interesting characters on a daily basis.

In my role, I get to work with all levels - from junior staff up to senior management. As much as senior management recruitment is great – it’s where the money is – the most rewarding placements you make are with lower level placements - you get a real sense of helping the candidate and giving them advice on their career. It is very rewarding as they are realising their full potential.

The people are amazing and we get to meet and talk to people in the industry we love on a daily basis - where else can you get paid to do what your passion is!

Of course I love eating out at restaurants but I need to offset this with something so I like to run! Two years ago I would never have even thought about saying this, but I have the running bug now and keep signing up to complete more and more crazy events! I also love to spend time with my family, my little one keeps me very, VERY busy and active!
