Tell us about your professional background

Before joining Halebury, I worked for five years as a Senior Resourcing Manager at a leading legal search consultancy in London. I have specialised in working with senior consultant lawyers across a broad range of sectors, from media to financial services.

I read Law at the University of Manchester before moving in to recruitment in 2013.
