Senior Resourcer

I have a background in both recruitment and administration (Childcare/Domestic and Education recruitment) and joined TFPL in 2018 as a resourcer. I am enjoying building relationships and look forward to continuing to do so across the sector. The Knowledge & Information Management space is constantly developing and evolving and offers a great raft of exciting opportunities for candidates at all levels.

Meeting and getting to know our candidates and helping the to find their next role is very enjoyable. It is a great feeling to help a recent graduate start their career in knowledge & information management and to see them flourish and develop in their roles. I also find it very interesting to look at more challenging roles for our experienced candidates.

I’m enjoying liaising with our archives and records management professionals and looking at how technology is increasingly supporting Knowledge & Information roles.
