"Healthcare recruitment is where I can make a difference and be a part of something that truly matters."

Why did you decide to enter the recruitment industry?

I didn't just fall into the recruitment industry - I chose it. I'm fascinated by the constant evolution of the industry, and the way innovative products and medical advancements are improving patient outcomes. Healthcare recruitment is where I can make a difference and be a part of something that truly matters.

What was it about healthcare that appealed to you?

I'm drawn to healthcare because it's an industry that is always growing and changing, and it's never stagnant. I enjoy learning about the latest developments and advancements that are making healthcare better for everyone.

What education background do you have that helps you with your current job?

My degree in MA International Relations & Sociology may not seem directly relevant to healthcare recruitment, but it has provided me with valuable skills such as critical thinking, communication, and research, which are essential in my role as a recruiter.

​"I emphasise the importance of emotional intelligence and honesty in communication..."

Why should a client or candidate work with you?

When you work with me, you can expect a high level of professionalism and a personalised approach. I have almost a decade of experience in healthcare recruitment, including both public and private sectors. I emphasise the importance of emotional intelligence and honesty in communication, and I work tirelessly to ensure that candidates and clients are satisfied with the results.

What is Your personal Advice for Candidates?

My advice to candidates is simple: be authentic and clear about what you want. It's important to articulate your experience, motivations, achievements, strengths, and areas of development with confidence and conviction. By being honest and straightforward, you'll increase your chances of finding the perfect match for your skills and goals.

  • ​Karen is an outstanding and professional Recruitment Consultant that personally secured my current position. Having worked with several agents in the past, none came close to the level of service and expertise that Karen provided. She always prepared we with the facts, followed up, I was never kept in the dark, my happiness was always central. She supported my decisions throughout the process. What most stood out for me, was Karen’s honesty and professionalism. Trust is a necessary component between an agent and their client in recruitment. It’s unfortunately not something I have experienced in the past with some other agents, but Karen always delivered upon this virtue. She talks the talk and walks the walk. For this reason, she will always be my first go to person that I will recommend to any colleague, organisation or friend.
