Job Title: Recruitment Consultant
Desk: Art (Design, VFX, Technical Art and Audio Design)
I’m pretty active! I run and play tennis a lot. I also do equestrian competitions with my two lovely horses Tinks and Bello most weekends. That’s a running theme with me. I adore sport in general and there’s endless animal love all over my social media. As for football specifically, I’m a huge Sheffield Wednesday fan, with Spurs being my guilty pleasure (but don’t spread that around). I’m a gin-enthusiast, lover of Hawaiian pizza (yes pineapple DOES belong on it) and an Andy Murray super fan. Fun fact, I can also play the bassoon and read Latin!
Favourite Game: Snake Pass
Favourite Game Series: The Sims
Favourite TV Series: Gavin and Stacey
Favourite Film: Notting Hill
Favourite Book: I do love a good autobiography…but I can’t pick just one!
Favourite Song/Band: I’m boring and just listen to the charts really.
What’s your career background?
I went to University and studied English Literature and Language, before graduating and taking a gap year to travel. Whilst on my break, I worked as a Camp Counsellor on the Camp America Programme in Vermont which was amazing. I also work on the media team at events (Burghley and Blair horse trials) and write for Sheffield Wednesday Football Club.
What’s an average day look like for you at Aardvark Swift?
Working in this job, there is a really nice balance between sourcing new candidates and building strong relationships with those you already have. They really do become friends as you’re actively invested in their life and getting them the right job. Each day involves a lot of talking, either on the phone, on LinkedIn or in person. Not that I mind that!
What do you love most about your job?
The reward of finding a great person a great job that they really want, especially if it has been a long slog for them! I’ve had people come to me who have been looking to move for a while and either haven’t been able to due to person circumstances or just haven’t had any luck on their own. Being uncomfortable or unfulfilled where you are is not a great position to be in and turning that around for someone is fantastic.
Favourite memory so far?
Being announced as a Women in Games Ambassador in 2019 was amazing! It’s a cause that’s close to my heart. I’m uniquely placed in my position to be able to help women break into the industry; offering CV advise, using my contacts at studios or just speaking from experience. I have a lot planned when it comes to my WIGJ projects, keep an eye on this space!
