Danielle moved to London in June 2014 and joined us for a year's placement. She went back to finish her degree (getting not just a 1st but also the highest mark in her year!) and re-joined us permanently in 2016 in a more senior role.
Her role focuses on sourcing the best candidates for our clients and then matching client - candidate - roles to each other.
Out of work, if her head isn’t stuck in a book with a coffee in hand, you can find her out and about with her camera, at the stables, or relaxing with a pint in the nearest pub.
