I joined Irwin Mitchell in September 2022 as a Consultant in the Partner Hires team. We act as an internal search function servicing the Partner level hires within Irwin Mitchell – both legally qualified and operational.
Our focus is on delivering to the strategic growth plan and the outcome being responsible, sustainable and profitable growth of the Irwin Mitchell business. The team also seeks to engage stakeholders, those within the Irwin Mitchell business and the wider market on key topics such as Diversity & Inclusion as well as others through Thought Leadership.
I am a former Commercial Litigator who moved into the world of Legal Recruitment in 2002. Since that time I have worked for large national recruiters as well as smaller independents and more recently ran my own business where I specialised in flexible working roles for lawyers.
What inspired you to join Irwin Mitchell?
Through my time as a Legal Recruiter I always knew Irwin Mitchell as being a great firm filled with great people leading the way in growing a diverse workforce with ambitious plans. It’s a business which isn’t afraid to do things differently and step away from the norm so the opportunity to play an active role in the firm’s future and be part of what Irwin Mitchell is creating very much appealed to me.
What is the most rewarding aspect of your role?
Working closely with the Business Units contributing to the growth and success of their departments and the firm as a whole.
What do you like about working at Irwin Mitchell?
Clients and colleagues really are valued and at the heart of everything we do. It’s a great place to work with many Diversity initiatives and awards and the firm’s ‘flexible by choice’ means I get to work at home or in the office to work around me and my family whilst doing a job I love.
What do you do away from the office?
I have two daughters, two ponies and two rescue dogs. I’m lucky to live in a lovely place with lots of great walks and country pubs on my doorstep but also love weekends away and spa breaks too. My daily fitness fix is my Hydrow rowing machine to give me that kick start on a morning.
