My academic background includes a BSc in Nutrition & Food Consumer Sciences from the University of Reading, UK. It has given me the necessary skills to understand clients' and candidates' needs and provide effective solutions.

Francesca was an immense help from the very beginning. She took the time to really get to know me as a person and understood my strengths and what I was looking for in the next phase of my career.

Senior Business Intelligence & Insights Analyst , Global Pharmaceutical Company
I have had the pleasure of engaging with Francesca as a client for a number of years and she has successfully placed a few roles in my team during that time. I have always been impressed with Francesca's professionalism and how she took time to understand your recruitment needs. Understanding the roles you are recruiting and the culture of the team and the business are critical in identifying the right candidates and this helps reduced the time interviewing candidates that are not the right fit. I also appreciated her follow ups as she had the perfect balance of following up in order to keep things moving but not being "over the top" with follow ups. I would recommend Francesca as a recruitment partner.

Fran not only helped me source 2 great contractors for my team, she most recently has placed me into a great new role. She’s always been great with communication and keeping you informed of the process, which is definitely a must in recruitment. She’s been such a delight to work with over the past few years and look forward to the continued partnership.
Financial Controller , Global Pharmaceutical Company
Professionally Fran has been an absolute delight to work with. She thoroughly understands the needs of both the job seeker and the employer perfectly. I have not known many recruitment consultants who go above and beyond to help, advise and follow through . She blends in her excellent industry knowledge and in depth understanding of the roles she recruits for perfectly. Personally she is affable and has a great attitude towards job seekers which is sometimes rare to find. Thanks so much Fran for all your help.
Senior Business Insights Analyst , Global Pharmaceutical Company
Fran is excellent - it had been quite a while since I had gone through the recruitment process and having only worked in public services, was not exposed to the negotiation process around salaries and conditions in the private sector. Fran stepped me through the process, gave me great preparation for my interviews and perhaps most importantly, guided me through the emotional process of leaving my old workplace and taking the plunge into the private sector. She helps you know your own worth and gets you in the door of people who can see your potential. You'll be in good hands.
Commercial Manager , Global Pharmaceutical Company
Fran was a pleasure to work with. She was both personable and professional, proving her sound judgement and industry knowledge. Fran also made an effort to provide candidates that fit the briefing well, and she balanced advocation with understanding for our business requirements. I would recommend her to both businesses and candidates alike.

As a candidate, Fran helped me every steps all the way from the first time I got the job descriptions until the 2nd interview. She provided very good and thorough details about the job and the company and was available to help when I had questions. She was also a good listener and able to help ‘sell’ my relevant skills & experience which are applicable for the role. As a customer, Fran nailed the requirements on the position immediately. I only had to interview one person out of two of her proposed candidates. The one I met and hired was a perfect match for the job and company fit.
