With a Criminology undergraduate and a master’s degree from Swansea University, a career in recruitment wasn’t the expected career move. However, it was during my time at university that I began to get serious about rugby, becoming Social Sec in my second year and then 1st Team Captain in my last year. After university, I went semi-pro playing for Bristol Bears and went on to earn 5 caps for Wales and several Welsh 7’s caps. I am also proud to have been selected as one of the top 30 women’s premiership players in 2021 and have very recently been picked to play for Wales in the Six Nations.
Finding a career that would enable me to continue to play professional rugby was what drove me towards recruitment. I joined tdm in January 2022 working within the Sales and Marketing team and have found that the qualities that make a great athlete often translate into what’s needed to make a great recruiter. I thoroughly enjoy the fast-paced, no two days being the same mentality as well as the flexibility tdm offers all its recruiters.
When I am not busy placing candidates with top-tier property and housebuilding clients, and not on the pitch, I can be found running a food blog called swans.eats providing candid reviews on Welsh cuisine and eateries.
