“With experience spanning over 20 years, my passion for recruitment began within a large blue-chip organisation in London, where I qualified and gained invaluable experience.

Then, after working in Asia managing the South East Asian office of a large International recruitment agency, I returned to the UK keen to apply my skills in a more selective and personal manner. 

For over 8 years I managed a small consultancy in central London and there I recognised the real need for a more bespoke approach to recruiting, offering both clients and candidates not only sound impartial advice, but a deeper insight into individuals and company culture. Aria Recruitment consolidates my experience and provides the opportunity to refine this personalised service.”
