Managing Director

I am the Managing Director at People Source and have been with the company for 12 years.

What I do

When Jason told me about his aims in setting up People Source I was keen to work with him again, but not before I took a year’s sabbatical to Australia. During my first 5 years with People Source I was a Recruitment Consultant and also returned to University. After completing a BSC in Experimental Psychology at the University of Bristol I undertook several counselling courses with a primary focus on cognitive behavioural therapy. My intention had been to become a CBT therapist but I felt that was something very different about the way People Source operated which persuaded me to re-evaluate my plans. In 2008 I took on the role of Operations Director and In 2014 I became Managing Director.

My role is varied but mainly focuses on managing and supporting our consultants and the tools/infrastructure which they rely on….and yes the counselling skills do come in handy now and again!

People Source was established in 2002 as an ethical and proactive IT recruitment agency. Since then we have gone from strength to strength in cultivating new client relationships and turning them into long term satisfied customers.

We believe that recruitment is based on close relationships and developing a deep understanding of the companies we recruit for to get the right cultural fit. Employees are a company's greatest asset and we strive to be a valued partner in helping our clients grow.
