Group: Casual Recruitment
Office: London Office
Job title: Head of Casual Recruitment - Junior Board

I joined the Off to Work casual team in 2013 after graduating from East 15 Acting School. I spent three years grafting as an actor, performing in a huge variety of projects ranging from pantomimes and national tours, to a West End show and even a spot on Emmerdale!

Having come from a hospitality background (my parents run their own bar/venue/kitchen), Off to Work was the ideal way to support my hectic life acting life. In my spare time, I’m an avid reader and total cat lady. I sing in a 50’s rock and roll band ‘Frankie & The Bozboys’ and love going to see live music and theatre. During my 3 years as a casual team member, I was proud to work at incredible events in some of London’s most amazing venues: club nights on the London Eye, a Game of Thrones premiere, beautiful charity events at The Dorchester and at the top of The Gherkin with an amazing client making (and testing!) fresh raspberry mojito ice cream, using liquid nitrogen and wearing a bowler hat - to name but a few!

I worked part-time as a senior recruiter and interviewer to support my artistic dreams, but recently realised that I've well and truly caught the Talent Hunting bug! I’m so passionate about the Arts and talent in any guise. Now I’m finding that talent in a slightly different form! My fiercely competitive nature motivates me to find the very best talent in every corner of the UK.
