Having grown up in the restaurant trade with my family operating Italian restaurants back in the Midlands, I have always had a passion for good food and great service. As much as I love the Hospitality Industry, I was definitely not destined for a career in the kitchen or dining room, having witnessed a few too many pizzas stuck to the ceiling and guest’s outfits ruined with spilt Vino Rosso!

After completing my BA at the University of Leicester, I came to London in 2003 to further my love of languages with an MA in Technical and Specialised Translation. After two years of translating and analysing foreign medical texts, I decided a more ‘people’ rather than ‘paper’ based career was what I wanted.

 Hospitality Recruitment gave me the opportunity to combine my love and knowledge of hospitality with a tool box full of new skills which have seen me spend the last 12 years specialising in both Senior Permanent Placements and quality Casual Staffing in the contract catering arena. So, what led me to join Off To Work?

 What’s that saying, ‘if you can’t beat them join them?’ 

I have watched Off to Work’s presence in the contract catering market go from strength to strength, and the company commands an unprecedented level of respect seldom seen in the casual staffing world. Off to Work put client and candidate experience at the forefront of everything they do and  I jumped at the chance to join the team where I will be specifically focusing on  Business, Industry and Education sectors.

Fun fact about me? Well, some people think it's boring but I am an avid cruise-lover! Since my first cruise in 2009, I have completed 10 voyages with the next big dream being to transit the Panama Canal!
